In the not-too-distant future, in a place call Satellite City, thirteen-year-old Cosmo Hill is unfortunate enough to come into the world unwanted by his parents. And so, as are all orphaned boys his age, Cosmo is dipped in a vaccine vat and sent to the Clarissa Frayne Institute for Parentally Challenges Boys. But when Cosmo attempts to escape, he finds himself caught in a web far worse that he could have ever imagined, embroiled with private police, illegal racing gangs, and a corporation cover-up, until he discovers a horrifying secret that will force him to question everything he knows and everything he believes in.
a huge eoin colfer fan
i love all the books that eoins colfer has written and i an a huge fan. The Supernaturalist was the first book of eoin's i've read, and i've loved every one since. all of the artemis fowl books were fantastic. Artemis Fowl was great. The Arctic Incident was wonderful. The Eterinity Code was my favorite book though; it really showed a more gadget- using, james bond spy, side to Artemis. The Opal Deception was a great way to tie up loose ends and would have been a great end to the seris, though i can't wait until book 5 The Lost Colony hits the U.S. In all Eoin Colfer and The Supernaturalist are Spectacular.
While I thouroghly enjoy all of Eoin Colfer's books with a passion, I have to say this book was not my favorite. It was a good book, just not a great book. Most of his other works are slightly better and easier to understand. Take Artemis Fowl, for instance. I've re-read those books so many times!! I would say that if you like a lot of science fiction, then this book is for you. Also, however, if you do read/listen to this, and don't enjoy it, that's crazy. I'd much more highly reccommend the Artemis Fowl books, or The Wish List, though. I admit the plot was cool, and the ending was dramatic, but it was very difficult to understand. Also, has anyone noticed how Colfer re-uses names in his books? Myishi is the name of the satellite in The Supernaturalist, but it was also the name of the Devil's technician in The Wish List. Also, Stefan Bashkir is a main character in The Supernaturalist, and one of Artemis Fowl's alter egos. Whether this is simlpy the rantings of an overly-enthusiastic fan, or an 'easter egg' purposely put in by Colfer I don't know. Hey, maybe the guy has trouble making up names. Who knows? Anyways, I think this is a good read, but I much prefer the Artemis Fowls.
Best Book EVER!!!~*~!!!
I love this book. It was the hardest book to put down and i stop reading books very easily. I found this book easier to read than Harry Potter.
