The Supernaturalist

Paige Boston
The Supernaturalist
by Eoin Colfer
pg 61

The author captures my interest in the header before the first chapter starts, with a line establishing the setting that says "Satellite City, Northern Hemisphere. Soon." From there, the book goes on to explain the the events take place sometime after the third millennium, in a strange metropolis controlled by a giant satellite owned by a futuristic corporation. The book then introduces the main character, Cosmo Hill, and describes the torture he has endured in his years as an orphan. He manages to escape from the orphanage and almost dies, and is rescued by a group of teenagers who hunt supernatural beings called Parasites that only they can see. In the authors perception of the future, much has changed, and I would like to see more conflicts introduced other than Cosmo learning how to be a Supernaturalist.

  1. I think this book had a really cool premise. I like sci-fi a lot. But I didn't think this book was that good because it's written like fifth graders are supposed to read it. The author keeps repeating things and there are a ton of typos. THe only thing that kept me reading it was finding out what the parasites are.
