This book was donated by the lovely Hannah who works with me at the Retreat (home of Swansea's first OBCZ). Although I used to own this book and have read it once, I forget most of it. So I think I'll read it before I pass it along.

Satellite City, Northern Hemisphere, soon:

Cosmo Hill is a human guinea-pig in an orphanage used by corporations to test new products. Statistics say he has about a year left to live - unless he escapes. But escapes to what? To a world of high-tech gang warfare, swat teams of paralegals and a plague of four-fingered parasites who are invisible to everyone except three misfits who call themselves the Supernaturalists.

Could Cosmo be one of them? Are they the family he's always wanted? And if he does become a Supernaturalist, will his life get any longer - or a whole lot shorter?

From the author of Artemis Fowl...

Stole this from Lottiotta for the train journey. A good book in general, but very much geared towards a younger audience. This book is very effective in creating its world - a dystopian cyberpunk future. nothing particularly bad about the book, but because of the definite slant in the style of the book towards younger readers I didn't enjoy it as much as I could have.

the book is back on Mount To Be Read with Lottiotta

Rargh! Also, this is going back to the same place on my TBR shelf, so I'll get round to it. :)

Nice to have someone enjoy it while it's waiting to be read!

A very cool book, with a thought-provoking plot. :) Well-written, but very much aimed at younger readers, but that's cool 'cos I'm young at heart! Strong characters and a very well developed dystopian world. Not as good as the Artemis Fowl books, but still great!

Should be off to Germany later on today, I'll journal again if I post it at a later date. :)

I received the book today - and for the life of me couldn't think of a reason why. ;o) Early onsetting Alzheimers or something.
Anyway, in the end I did remember and I'm very happy to finally get to read it. But because I just got home from a bookshopping spree in London, I'm afraid it has to wait a while on my Mt. TBR.
Thanks, lottiotta, for not forgetting me! :o)

I finally got to read it and I can't quite make up my mind if I liked it or not. It certainly isn't as good as the Artemis Fowl books by the same author.
The basic idea is good, but the story is really only for teenagers, who just want to be entertained and don't question certain details too thoroughly. So in the end, it's an ok book, but there is certainly YA literature out there that would have more of an impact on me if I were still that young.
I'm not quite sure what to do with the book now. I'll try to find a way to let it travel on somewhere.

A enjoyable romp. A very quick read and I think I may search out a few more by Colfer.

A good fast read. I liked the future world, a lot of cool gadgets (especially used by the authorities).
Posted today to the land of Bryan Adams, skiers and moose. :)

I actually got this a while back.. and it arrived during a crazy moment in life and somehow didn't get registered with me till now. I am moving in a month and haven't had chance to read this yet but will be taking it with me on my cross country move as reading material for the road. Thanks so much for sharing
