So, I'm convinced that Markus Zusak could write an entire novel about mashed potatoes or asphalt and it would be brilliant. I also know that there is surely no other writer on the planet that could make me give a book about two boxing brothers 5 stars and hate that I've finished it so quickly!
Wow.This book is about two things that I know very little about.Brothers & Boxing.So, I thought maybe I'd sort of float through it. Large font, little over 200 pages an overnight shift no biggie.Right.Markus, I'm sorry I gave you such little credit. What was I thinking? I'd read I Am the Messenger. I bawled over The Book Thief. So, why was I so surprised by this? Maybe because I didn't want to believe that someone so young could deliver like this from the get-go. Again, sorry about that. So, [...]
Actual rating: 4.5 Втората книга за братята Улф бе невероятно продължение на поредицата и толкова по-добра от първата част. Маркъс Зюсак отново ме накара да се вклюбя и ми припомни защо толкова обичам творчеството му. *скоро ревю в блога*
I HAVE JUST READ YOU AND I LOVE YOU. Or rather, I have just read y' and I love y'. *************Before I even read the book, I decided this cover was perfect and ordered it from a UK seller. Colored hoodies FTW.
This book was the second book in a three book series. You follow two brothers Ruben and Cameron Wolfe. The brothers learn they can box and thus begins the story.
Så jävla bra. Sitter på balkongen, helt utmattad med en känslostorm inom mig. Älskar böcker när jag fattar precis vad karaktärerna känner, även om jag aldrig kännt eller tänkt något liknande själv
Цялото ревю: bloodyravenblog/20,,Да се биеш с Рубен Улф'' е втората част от поредицата за братята Улф, с която Маркъс Зюсак вдига летвата наистина много високо. Първата несъмнено беше симпатична, добро начало, но втората просто разбива конкуренцията. Харесва ми, че се съсредоточава не [...]
Да се биеш с Рубен Улф, да се бориш със себе си: knigolandiafo/book-review/d“Да се биеш с Рубен Улф” е книга за братската обич и братското съперничество. Те си вървят заедно и са неизбежни – и Маркъс Зюсак е направил невъзможното: описал ги е с толкова топлота, че прочетох книгата на един [...]
~4.75⭐️~Had to read this for school, I was a little iffed when I realised it was the second book in a series but this book is my favourite book read in school. I particularly loved Ruben and Cameron's relationship as brothers. An awesome and quick read.
While not his best work, by the end Zusak found that prose I so love and the characters became the ones I love in Getting the Girl. It gave me my Zusak fix.
3.5. Çeviri ilkinden daha iyiydi.
I enjoyed Markus Zusak's first novel The Underdog sufficiently enough to give this sequel, Fighting Ruben Wolfe, a go. I liked The Underdog. I love Fighting Ruben Wolfe! What a difference one novel makes. The Underdog was strong in character, prose and theme, but Fighting Ruben Wolfe ups the ante with a stronger structure and a fully realised plot. This gritty, feelgood novel about two boxing brothers and a family of "battlers" made me glow on the inside and want to laugh, cry and smile maniacal [...]
Zusak never dissapoints me, there is something about his work that makes feel free. His books are wild and young and reckless. It is magic! His writing is simple but filled with feelings you couldnt really try and describe, yet he does an excellent job. When I read his books, specially Fighting Ruben Wolfe, I feel like Everything is perfect!, I mean, yeah, those boys theirselves are not perfect and the book proves that life itself is not perfect but that doesnt really matter. It is everything wh [...]
İlk kitapla kıyaslarsak oldukça başarılı bir devam kitabı diyebilirim. Genel olarak karakterlerin gelişmeleri, Cameron ve Rube'un arasındaki bağların iyice sıklaşması gayet güzel şeylerdi. Ben seride genel olarak bir şeye takıldım: Serinin üç kitabında da özgün isimler kullanılmamış ve kapaklardaki çocuksu duruş kitapların ciddiyetini bozmuş. Neyse hız kesmeyelim ve üçüncü kitaba başlayalım.Puanım: 5 / 4,5
RUBEN AND CAMERON LET ME LOVE YOU! I love this book. I have more things to say over here
I love this. I love Zusak and I love how Australian this is.
This is a total surprise for me! I remember picking this up some time ago for no reason other than a quick read. So in 2018 some years later I decide to give it a read as it’s something I’ve never read before. Boxing isn’t a topic I care about and hundreds of what I like to call growing up novels, so I was a bit apprehensive. The reason I’m telling you this is so I can show you how surprised I was to find out how bloody brilliant this is. I did worry that it would just be about the boxin [...]
I haven't read the first wolfe book, so keep that in mind, will you?I used to be like you. I had read The book thief, I had loved the book thief, and i was looking for more Zusak. I found Fighting Ruben Wolfe, and I was happy for that. Well, straighten up chap, I've got some news for you.1. Fighting ruben wolfe is the 2nd book in the wolfe trilogy. That means that there is a book you should read that comes before this one. 2. Where The book thief was cute and cry-able, the wolfe cronicles (can i [...]
"She smiles pretty, and in that split second, I forget. I forget about Perry Cole and all those future punches. It makes me wonder, Do we spend most of our days trying to remember or forget things? Do we spend most of our time running toward or away from our lives? I don't know."So wonders Cameron Wolfe, the big-hearted, tender protagonist of Fighting Ruben Wolfe. Passages like the one above--full of a quiet sort of wisdom, almost a ache to it--aren't uncommon in this book. They're plentiful, si [...]
I picked this book up because of the author, Markus Zusak, who wrote The Book Thief, which is written incredibly well.Fighting Ruben Wolfe is above all, a story of brothers. Cameron Wolfe is the younger, shy boy with all the heart and cares about everything. He loves his brother, he's tough like a survivor, he'll get back up after getting beat down. Ruben Wolfe is the tough one, the one doing the beating up, the one with a perfect record, who can drop anyone. The bond of brotherhood between them [...]
The fantastic Mr. Zusak is back, with a long-awaited UK reprint of his early novel Fighting Ruben Wolfe, which was first published in Australia in the year 2000. It's not quite in the same league as The Book Thief, but his excellent writing and characterisation still shines through in true Zusak style.Brothers Cameron and Ruben Wolfe head up this gritty tale of family and fighting, and show just what determination and a sense of pride can achieve. When their father loses his job and starts strug [...]
Може ли един Улф да бъде красив? azcheta/da-se-biesh-s-rubeАко в предишната книга младият Камерън намираше малки частици от себе си в ежедневните сблъсъци у дома и на улицата, то в „Да се биеш с Рубен Улф“ той събира големи парчета от сърцето си на ринга, сред ревящата тълпа. Един тийней [...]

Their father has been physically damaged, and he is out of a job. Rube and Cameron are determined to find a way to support their family. When the two meet a fight promoter, they are told they can make extra money by fighting in boxing matches. But the matches are the toughest thing the two brothers have faced. [...]
So I'm still making my way through Underdogs (which is a collection of all three books in this series), and I plan on writing a review of the trilogy as a whole once I'm done (which I will link to in this review, once I've done that).I finished Fighting Ruben Wolfe yesterday, which is the second book in the series, and I thought it was a big improvement in comparison to book one. While book one was well-written and still kept me interested, it didn't have a lot going on in terms of plot or confl [...]
são pouquíssimas as vezes em que, ao ler algo, penso: 'puxa vida, queria escrever assim'! mas é exatamente isso que acontece quando leio algo do zusak. ele sabe contar uma história como ninguém, e tem umas sacadas muito geniais sobre como abordar os assuntos, os acontecimentos, e os personagens. adoro sempre! preciso reler outros livros dele, aliás! é sempre uma delícia ler as coisas do markus. este livro só não ganha 5 estrelas porque é curtinho demais -- não deu pra chegar nem pert [...]
I liked the book quite a lot. Probably in the 3.5 star range. I didn't bump it up to 4 stars because it just didn't draw me in like I Am the Messenger did. Maybe it's not fair to compare the two, since this was Markus Zusak's first book (meaning that it makes sense that the later books would be better), but there it is!I think the book was just too short! It felt like a flushed-out outline. The storyline was there, but it was missing substance I wanted more details about the boys more informatio [...]
I read this book without even knowing there was a first one, I picked it up randomly at the library but I loved it still. It's actually kind of rare for a YA contemporary to feature genuinely working class people and teens fighting for their lives and family in a real and believable way. I could relate to a lot of the themes and emotions that were in this book. Especially the relationship between the brothers. Me and my sister are like that as well. Always in sync and we understand each another [...]
If you haven't read the first book of the series, I highly suggest you read it NOW.It's actually not a big deal, this book stands fine on its own.Zusak has integrated the things that were perfect in the first book (characters, writing style, word choice, etc) and also shaped the imperfect things into more beautiful creations: mainly, the plot.There actually is a solid plot in this book. Another thing?the book is even more metaphorical and symbolic than the first book. If that's even possible.All [...]
What is it about boxers that makes you root for them ? Here we have two teenage brothers who are recruited to box in rundown venues for very little money. Ruben Wolfe is a natural and easily wins all his fights. Younger brother Cameron isn't really much of a fighter, in fact, his boxing name is The Underdog. The story is about their home life, why they agreed to become fighters, culminating in a match against each other. I expected a little more from Zusak and up until the last few pages I would [...]
Musím přiznat, že tento díl se mi líbil o něco více než ten předchozí. Rodina Wolfova mě opravdu zaujala, líbily se mi jejich pevné vazby mezi sebou a to, jak se vesměs všichni navzájem podporovali. Cameronova postava byla vylíčena (myslím) velmi věrně a docela bych i věřila, že to v klučičích myslích nějak takhle vypadá. Pořád si nejsem jistá hodnocením, proto zatím udílím 4 SLABŠÍ hvězdy a počkám si na poslední díl, abych se definitivně rozhodla.
