3-0 out of 5 stars Could have been better but not all bad....
Just finished reading this one, and I have to say, although I enjoy this type of book immensely this one was a big let down.
While there are not many to choose from with this format I guess it is one of the few, and as another person put it, "beggars can't be choosers".
On that note I would like to recommend another book I have read (and re-read) several times with a similar theme and is a classic in my opinion. That book is "White Fang" by Jack London.
As stated this book (Blazer) was ok, but it pales in comparison to "White Fang".
A lot of people think White Fang is a children's book, and while it might appeal to a younger audience, it is also a great read for adults.
An acquaintance I know reads a lot he gobbles up books 2 and three at a time!! One day I asked if he had ever read "White Fang" to which he replied he had not. When I told him about it he didn't think he would like it and said "no thanks", I brought in a old copy I had and gave it to him. He begrudgingly thanked me (I thought he might not give it a chance) a few days later he came and thanked me over and over for turning him on to it. He also became interested in Jack London and has since read everything London has written.
So if you have not read it, give "White Fang" a try, you won't be sorry.

3-0 out of 5 stars Beggers can't be choosers
Their aren't many books in print that tell fictitious stories about fighting dogs.It's not a subject with universal appeal obviousily.There have been some classic, simply written books about the subject written in the early part of the 20th century, such as The Bar Sinister, and White Monarch and the Gas House Pup.Blazer: The Story of a Fighting Dog is not up to par with those earlier examples.The writing is not that good and the editing is not much better.There are consistent typos and grammatical errors throughout that get in the way of enjoyment.Regardless, it does have a fairly interesting plot following the journeys of a rough-and-tumble bull terrier stolen from a honest, caring owner by thieves who attempt to earn money from fighting the dog.The bad guys are shown for what they are - morons, and the good guys are willing to be pushed around until they decide enough is enough.Nothing too original, but if you like reading about fighting dogs track this one down.You won't be bragging about it but you won't be kicking yourself either. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Dog Eat Dog
Dog Eat Dog, By Chris Lynch is one of the best books I've read in a while. It is a non-fiction book. I hadn't read the first two books of the trilogy before reading this, and I am going to start reading the first book of the series. I would recommend this book to anyone.
It is a very intriguing book even though it is not the joyful book I've read; it is that, that makes my book intriguing. This book is about a 15 year old kid, who is going through many struggles with his family, and is trying to overcome all the struggles in his life. He goes through problems with in an Irish part of Boston where life's rough. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone under the age of 12 years old due to some of the strong language and graphic details of the book.
It is a very good book for anyone trying to overcome their own personal problems and it is good to see that you can escape from your old life and start over. I was overall very happy that I read this book and I think most people would enjoy it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Great start, okay finish
I loved the first two books in the blue eyed son series, but the last book waasn't even half as good as the first two.The ending to this trilogy wasn't satisfying at all.I was very annoyed with the whole dog fighting thing.The fact that Mick would participate in such a moronic thing showed that he really had not grown and changed very much at all.I was disappointed in him after that. But I really do reccomend the trilogy because it's an inspiring story about a boy who manages to escape his upbringing.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Great Book for Teenagers
Dog Eat Dog was a very good book. This book is good for a person with a defunctional family.It has a lot to say about miscommunacation between family members.It had a lot of rude language but that is one thing thatmade it a good book.It was a little on the rude side, but that is what Iliked about it. If you are a very wild teen and find reading about wildteens exciting then this is the book for you.I am one of those teens thatfind others with problems interesting and the main character of this booksure has a lot of problems.So if you want a book with teens who can'twait to grow up then read it!Have fun, I sure did! ...

24. Pit Bulls As Pets: A Positive Experience - Break Through The Negative Media Stereotypes!

Product Description
"Are You Under The Negative Influence Of Hyped Media Stereotypes When It Comes To Your Knowledge Of Pit Bulls?"What is the image that immediately comes into your mind when you think of the words "Pit Bull"?

I can almost guarantee that they would be somewhere close to fierce, ferouscious, vicious, killer, unstoppable, uncontrollable, or locking jawed man-eaters. Heck, maybe even all of those words would adequately fit the vision you have ingrained from negative reports, horror stories, graphic "after-attack" photo images and terrifying news broadcasts.

But, do you really know anything beyond what you have been "spoon fed" about the breed known as The American Pit Bull Terrier?? I bet not. Find Out The Truth! ... Read more

the product ive recived from amazon was on time and in good condition and at a good price i give shoping whith amazon 100percent no dout its safe and easy

5-0 out of 5 stars necessary history
For those of us in the bulldog world, this is a must have. Despite the fact that dog-fighting is horrifying, it is also the cornerstone of our breed, and to some degree, the persona of the early American. It was the parsimony of the New England settlers that demanded a dog who could guard, herd, catch animals for slaughter, keep the number of varmints down, babysit the children AND go fight on Sundays after church. The photos and information in this book are important, as no one who owns a pit bull may be allowed to forget their ancestry. This warrior breed so besmirched by the press, was an important part of American history.

2-0 out of 5 stars Thirty years with Fighting dogs
I think if you read the first story; you've read the whole book. It is the same story by different fighters.Pictures are cool.

Product Description
In this remarkable debut novel set in 1940s Mexico, Marc Bojanowski has crafted a work of startling originality -- a poetic, mesmerizing tale of loyalty, violence, love, and redemption.

Written in the searing voice of its unnamed narrator, this is the story of a young man drifting through the badlands of California and Mexico after the death of his mother. He eventually settles in Canci#243;n, a sleepy Baja city on the verge of transformation. Lured by money and fame, he enters into an underground world where men fight against trained dogs before a raucous crowd of the town's elite businessmen and those who work for them. With an uncommon display of strength, skill, and sheer fearlessness, he becomes an overnight success.

Before long he catches the eye of a powerful businessman, whose grand vision is to turn Canci#243;n into a lucrative resort destination. But when the dog fighter finds friendship with a revolutionary old poet and is drawn toward a mysterious young woman, he becomes ensnared in an intricate web of promise and deceit. Caught between the ways of his past and the dreams of his future, he is forced to make a devastating choice that ignites a mixture of jealousy, greed, lust, and betrayal, culminating in a fight both for his life and the fate of the city.

Haunting, lyrical, imaginative, and immensely powerful, The Dog Fighter is a stunning novel of beauty and brutality that announces the arrival of an extraordinary new talent in American fiction. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Vile garbage
Poorly written, boring where not disgusting, juvenile, fatuous and facile. It is a sad reflection of the intelligence of today's book reading public that anyone could fail to see through this flimsy piece of sensationalistic nonsense. Once one gets over the deliberate, calculated attempt to create a stir through cruelty one is left with vapid story telling by a ham fisted author with nothing to say and an absence of any discernible style with which to say it. My jaw dropped when I saw that other reviewers consider this a possibly important piece of work. Really? I shall clear Proust from my shelf to make room for this new master of literature. Still, if you put enough gore and violence in films or books there will always be some emotionally stunted cretins who will claim it is a masterpiece. It never fails. I see another reviewer also compared the author with Hemingway. It is famously said of Hemingway that he never got over the fact that he could never be as macho as Gertrude Stein. It was also said by Quentin Crisp that after a lifetime of shooting everything that moved Hemingway even shot himself. I have already forgotten the name of the author, I hope I will soon have forgotten the book, and I hope with fervor that I do not waste any more of my life with equally atrocious garbage. The one good thing is that the next book I pick up, whatever it is, is going to seem like a masterpiece compared to this waste of time.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of my favorites
I had not heard of this book until my brother recommended it a few years ago. Great book. It is violent, but not overly violent. It's grittiness is part of what makes it so great. Definitely worth a look.

5-0 out of 5 stars I wish
I wish with all my heart that Marc Bojanowski would write another novel. The Dog Fighter is a masterpiece.

5-0 out of 5 stars Silenced
I read this some time ago and loved it. My problem is that the narrator's voice is so strong and vividly written that when I read the book I tend to write my own characters in the Dogfighter's voice, therefore I have not been able to read it again. I applaud Mr. Bojanowski's courage in using flawed grammer and fragmented dialogue, this simply adds to the realism of the dogfighter's world and perhaps that blatent realism creates a bit of a blank canvas for the reader to reflect their own feelings upon. For me the work is well done, energetic, beautufully voiced and a powerful statement about the twisted worlds of love and violence and redemption. I need to be more concrete in this reveiw but time does not allow it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Debut Novel ...
A truly impressive first novel from Marc Bojanowski ... lyrical bordering on poetic. Mr. Bojanowski tells a violent tale of a severely damaged young man's journey toward becoming a whole human being. The violence is handled artfully ... never gratuitous ... harsh and ugly, but always a logical part of the meticulously devised plot. A unique and highly original debut novel from Marc Bojanowski. ... Read more
