IRISH THUNDER The Hard Life & Times of Micky Ward

by | Read by Bronson Pinchot

Biography & Memoir • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

Former ESPN anchor Bob Halloran recounts “Irish” Micky Ward’s rise to hero status as a boxer in this 2007 biography, which inspired the Academy Award-nominated film THE FIGHTER. Narrator Bronson Pinchot brings Micky and his family and friends to life with a rich tone and lets through just enough emotion during the fight scenes to express their intensity without losing the listener. Halloran covers Micky’s rivalry with his imprisoned brother, fight negotiations, and betrayals that helped shape him. One doesn’t need to be a boxing fan to enjoy this true story. Micky’s victories inside and outside the ring will leave the listener inspired. B.C.E. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2011]
