    Darker and funnier

    In the first book we were introduced to the Borribles, runaway children that get pointy ears and become immortal. The Borribles are lovers of freedom, don’t use money, steal anything they need, live on the streets and in abandoned houses and love to share stories of their adventures. They are the middle ground between Peter Pan’s Lost Boys and street urchins. After the expedition on the first book to Rumbledom to attack the Rumbles, dangerous rat-like creatures, the Borribles now need to face the police. The London authorities seem now set in ending the Borrible phenomena once and for all. The survivors from the precious adventure, get together with newcomer Twilight and Spiff, informal Battersea leader and a living legend. A Borrible that has been running the streets since Victorian times. The author brought the series to new heights in the excellent Go For Broke. Spiff’s character, than had a small part on the first book, is built exceptionally here. He is always smiling, but is dangerous as a dagger, constantly manipulates the situation to his advantage and you are never sure of this true motivations. Another intriguing character is Old Ben, the homeless, and “honorary Borrible”. A guy that lives on a dump and considers himself “the richest man in the world”, because he has access to all the useful things the citizens of London throw away. Other great characters include the law-obsessed police inspector and the Sergent that only thinks about eating. Go For Broke is the high point of a strange series of violent children’s adventures.
