5.0 out of 5 stars Truly visionary, one of the best books i've ever read, 12 Mar. 2008
This review is from: The Supernaturalist (Paperback)
Barcode: 9780141317410

The Supernaturalist will always have a special place in my heart. I had already read the Artemis Fowl novels and enjoyed them immensely so i was eager to try something else from the brilliant Eoin Colfer. I didn't know what to expect from this book but i am eternally grateful i read it as in my opinion it is one of the best books i've ever read.

I'll even go as far to say that this is better than the Artemis Fowl books. Even though Cosmo as a character isn't as strong a character as Artemis, that doesn't matter as the true star of this story is the setting. Colfer has always been a whizz at describing technology and here he describes a world that is at once both fantastic and terrifying. Fans of stuff like Doctor Who, the film AI and games like Final Fantasy will love the world presented here, a place of supreme technological advancement and a dream for any sci-fi or fantasy fan.

A city of towering skyscrapers controlled by a massive satellite in low orbit over a world where space ships and illegal street races represent the two sides of the coin in a world where the balance between high-society and anarchy rests on a knife edge.

The plot is thrilling, the desciption of it as the Matrix meets Ghostbusters an appropriate one as we encounter thrilling action scenes and facinating ideas and imagery. An extremely easy book to get into, i'd recommend it to anyone of any age. Simply an amazing book, an absolute must read!
