The roots of success are bitter while the fruits are sweet. Success needs perseverance. Meet wonder woman as she narrates her journey to success in The Most Unlucky Champion by Vero Koo.

This is a motivational memoir where the author narrates how she came from grass to grace.

Vera starts by narrating how she got involved in gun shooting. This sport previously belonged to the male. Vera breaks her leg when preparing for Bianchi cup, this never stopped her, she convinces herself that she can do it. She goes for training where she is being trained by Jim O’ Young who was a champion in the shooting. Besides shooting, Vera narrates her family life and background. As a mother, she faces a lot of difficulties in her matrimonial home. She narrates how she gave birth to a son who later died. This really hurt her but became her turning point. Though things became tough for her, she focuses, and move from glory to glory as she came to God in prayer, whom she believes in. She focuses on achieving her dreams. Truly, no human is limited. Find out how she passed through all these challenges in achieving her topmost dream.

The 172 paged novel transverses the following themes, friendship, marriage, death, and hardship. Vera’s writing tone is informative as she neatly describes every event in the book. At the end of the book, we have records of the author’s achievement. Truly, the author had excelled in the shooting.

There are many positive characteristics of the book. The picture in the middle of the book grasps the reader’s attention, creating a lively and vivid tone in the text. The continuous humor in the book also made me smile all the time when I was reading. The story was well structured, and the writing was impeccable. These made it easy and enjoyable to read. It is a rare occasion when readers become so enthralled in a book that they cannot put it down. The Most Unlucky Champion became the focus of that occasion for me. It was a magnificent book.

Though the book seems to be very great, I met several grammatical errors that would make me believe that the book was not professionally edited and it would be great if it’s undergone another round of editing.

It’s my pleasure to rate The Most Unlucky Champion 3 out of 4 stars. The number of grammar errors kept me from giving this book the full rating. I recommend this book to everyone, especially those who find success by reading other people’s success.

The God factor is infinite! I love the part where Vera takes it to God. And love her strength, perseverance, doggedness and determination. She's deserving of her success, I must say. Beautiful review.

Oh, sounds like a great book. It's good for success through hardship to be thought these days and not just the polished 'oh, I didn't try so hard I just got there' thing

Great Review.

I like the way Vera kept going after her dream. It was interesting to read that the death of her son marked the turning point in her life. She was able to keep her sense of humor, in spite of difficulties in her life. Thanks so much for this inspiring recommendation!

Insofar as the word 'should' even has meaning, then we must say that the past is exactly as it should be, everything that happened should have happened, and everything that should happen will happen
