Book Review: Wolf Brothers: #2 Fighting Ruben Wolf by Markus Zusak - Reviewed by CloggieA (20 Sep 2012)
Fighting Ruben Wolfe is the second in the Wolfe Brothers series by Australian author, Markus Zusak. Quite a bit has changed in the Wolfe household in the last year: Cliff was injured at work, now has no jobs coming in and is feeling inadequate as the breadwinner; Mrs Wolfe, with two jobs, is working harder than ever; Steve is leaving home as his parents’ pride won’t allow them to take a contribution from him; Sarah is taking her break-up with Bruce hard, drinking too much and getting a less-than-desirable reputation; Ruben uses his fists to defend the family name. This and his bouts of backyard One Punch with Cam (born of having only one set of boxing gloves) helps set them on the road of illegal fights with promoter Perry Cole, not just for the money, Rube says, but “to get our self-respect back”. This is a story about family loyalty, brothers supporting each other and having the heart to get up after you’re knocked down. The format this time is sixteen chapters of Cameron’s narration in a genuine teenage voice, each ending in a conversation between Rube and Cam. There is some lovely prose: “…..the sun is screaming out in pain on the horizon. The horizon swallows it slowly, eating it up whole.” The dog illustrations are a cute touch. Excellent early Zusak.
