This book has a fabulous plot line and kept me going all the way through. The sarcasm and notes directed at the reader was a fun, taunting change from an author. My one criticism is for the editor. I thought I should be taking notes for the numerous errors throughout the book. Otherwise, I enjoyed the read. The idea of gay boxing is what caught my attention and led me to the checkout counter with the book. This genre was new to me and I loved it! Bring on more!
Well let me explain my title of guilty pleasures i bought mr. hutchinson's book and went to reading it the same afternoon. I immediatly became inthrolled with the details of this never before written book. I stepped inside a world of forbidden treasures. I felt guilt and pleasure at the same moment, as if i were reading someones diary and any moment i would be caught.The book was very on the edge and was a wonderful add to my collection. I must continue to say that I have never read anything like it. It was genius. adding the art of boxing with sexualality made it a must read for boxing enthusiast and the gay and lesbian population. I am very glad to see the two mix and again look forward to reading more
Alex Hutchinson earns my respect for daring to do what I thought most would not do. Despite the controversy of his discussion of gay relationships in sports amidst sensitive times, he also gets kudos for developing a great plot and love story between Ash, Jenn and Chad. The intensity of this bisexual love triangle is thrilling and keeps readers on edge with an undercurrent of disturbing discomfort and also an odd sense of familiarity that is even more troubling. His characterization is rich, colorful and realistic. Prepare to be nitty-grittied with this hard core novel. Its implications of life are too important to be dismissed.
When I read "Virgin Gloves" it was like stepping into another a world. Not many authors have been able to completely enthrall me. I started reading intending to do my customary one chapter per night. At 4:00 am I was still reading and although I knew I had to get up for work I couldn't put the book down. Hutchinson makes you fell like you know Ash Hatcher personally. I've suggested this book to everyone I know. "Virgin Gloves" gives insight into a different way of living and is sprinkled with facts about the amazing sport of boxing. I am anxiously awaiting the next tile by this gifted author.
Alex Hutchinson has done what few authors have the courage to do now a days. He took a subject that no one had been writing about and dived in with both feet. Virgin Gloves was hardly about boxing, it was more about the passionate and dysfunctional relationships between the main charcters Ash, Jenn and Chad. More than the content was the style in which it was written. It was easy to read and hard to put down. Each chapter makes you want to stay awake longer to get to the next one. If every novel was this suspensefull, I'd read alot more than I do now.
To be honest with you, this is'nt a book I normally would've read, but I'm glad I did!!. Alex Hutchinson's unique writing style, and his knowledge of the "sweet science"(that's boxing for all you non-boxing readers) is incredible!!. What makes this book stick out from the rest is the "taboo" subject of a gay boxer and the boxing journalist who falls for him. This has been the best book that I have read in a real long time!!. I highly recommend this book to everyone!!.
This is a great book. Shows a world many people may not be aware of, yet can relate to.

It captures your attention, a definite page turner.

It is not just about boxing, that is the background story. It is really about relationships, and we can all relate to some aspects of it.

Highly recommended.
I have never read a book that struck me so close to home as "Virgin Gloves" did. It definetly made me feel like there were others who have the same feelings as me. It was also nice to see the way that Alex Hutchinson was able to really express his characters. I was never really a fan of boxing but now that I know more about the sport I have started watching it with my husband who is now reading the book. I would definetly recommend this book to everyone, as it could fall under so many different types of literature. It is non-fiction/fiction, romance, sporty, educational, and eye-opening. "Virgin Gloves" has the ability to make the reader want to learn more about the basis of the book.
