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!

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.


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 tha

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*

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:

,,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 само върху Кам, но и върху Руб, разгръщат се нови негови страни.
,,Да се биеш с Рубен Улф'' притежава някакво особено очарование, сурова красота. Трябва да си призная, че я четях с постоянно
Христо Блажев
Да се биеш с Рубен Улф, да се бориш със себе си:

“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 дъх, а не исках да свършва. Да, първата част от трилогията – “Аутсайдерът” – беше приятна, но нищо особено, но тази втора част изведнъж скочи в дълбокото и без колебание ѝ давам 5 звезди, което по

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.
