5.0 out of 5 stars A book that is both funny and deep. Highly recommended.
THE WISH LIST
Eoin Colfer's latest children's book, 'The Wish List', is one of the most unusual you will find. It manages to combine a deep and spiritual storyline with the funniest, most down-to-earth humour imaginable, and also has warm, sympathetic characters, who spring to life (or indeed afterlife!) from the page. The protagonist of the book is Meg Finn, aged...

3.0 out of 5 stars Swift and Sweet
The Wish List, a story involving the classic battle of heaven and hell but with a distinct modern flavour. It's one of the most easiest reads around and one that you can pick up and finish in an evening. There are some cracking lines in there with a particularly comic view of 'Hell's number one'.
Meg Flynn, a moody teenage girl who after a burglary gone wrong, finds...

4.0 out of 5 stars Four Stars, 26 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Wish List (Paperback)
An engaging book - not quite as funny as the blurb would suggest - a book for young teens.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good read, 5 Mar 2004
This review is from: The Wish List (Hardcover)
Overall I enjoyed this book and thought it was a good read. The characters are interesting and the concept is humorous.
However, to a certain extent, Meg's character is too nice for me to believe that everything hangs in the balance. She isn't perfect, but she's human, and not so bad that you can believe she could go to hell. Even when you hear about some of the things she's got up to, it doesn't change the fact that she's basically nice.
I read the Artemis Fowl series first and have noticed distinct similarities between certain characters, though this isn't a completely bad thing.
I would recommend this book, but I wouldn't say it was to die for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impossible to put down., 29 May 2003
This review is from: The Wish List (Hardcover)
This book definitely put artimus fowl to shame! I'm not very keen on artimus fowl, as it didn't seem to grab you into the story.
When I read this book, at first, I thought it was a little morbid, being about death and all, but after you got past that stage, the book was nothing but relationships, wondering and humour!

2.0 out of 5 stars i wish not!, 21 Feb 2006
This review is from: The Wish List (Paperback)
i thought it was very boring. yes there was a lot of funny lines but over all it like another little silly book.
i like Cofler's book, especially Artemis Fowl, but this book didnt give me the wow factor.
it was quite a good beginning and the kissy sissy was cool. but i did start to get bored. i was not hooked to it. maybe i didnt read it proberly maybe i did, but read it and see if you like it or not.
