The Wish List

All about the author himself, and discussion on any of the other books he has written.

I liked the Wishlist. That was the problem. I didn't LOVE it like I do Artemis Fowl.

That's pretty much what I think. It was good but nothing special.

Meh. It was kind of boring at times.

It was okay I guess. No where as good as Artemis Fowl

"Holly, let me look at you," he said, holding her soulders. Something in Artemis's voice made Holly stop what she was doing and pay attention. this was not a tone Artemis used often.

I'm reading it right now. It's okay. It's not Eoin Colfer's best book (Artemis Fowl), but it's not his worst book (Half-Moon Investigation) either!

I kinda liked it. Of course, it wasn't as good as AF. But it wasn't bad either.

The wish List was awesome!

The reasons aliens haven't made contact with us because if a species were to become space-faring, they would have no doubt realized that bickering and warring is primitive. They realize that any interaction with humans would be met with hostility on our parts. Only when we can put aside our differences and tear down our borders will be find what we are looking for.

Okay, since this is a topic for Wish List, let's just put it in here. Has anyone heard of the movie called the Bucket List? It's almost the same as the Wish List, only without a ghostly-like thing in it. Anyone agrees?

Thw Wish List had a very interesting plot, but it just doesn't impress me as much as Artemis Fowl 1-5, Half Moon Investigations, Benny series, and TS.

I don't think it was any worse than his other books, just different. Religious, for one, and more realistic in some ways. No hope for an earthly happy ending, and the reality that death is inevitable.

i think why most people shun it is because they bond with a dead person. :D
