9780141380407: The Supernaturalist

Fourteen-year-old Cosmo Hill longs to escape from the Clarissa Fayne Institute for Parentally Challenged Boys. When a rare chance to get away comes, he grabs it, but the attempt goes fatally wrong. He can feel his life force ebbing away, sucked out of him by a strange blue Parasite ...until a wisecracking gang of kids burst in, blast the creature and save him. They are the Supernaturalists, dedicated to ridding the world of these life-sucking blue parasites. When they realise that Cosmo also has the ability to see these blue creatures, they enlist him as one of them too. Their mission leads Cosmo into a world of high-level corruption, James Bond type technology, thrilling adventure and finally back to a place that Cosmo ever thought he'd have to return...the dreaded Clarissa Fayne.

About the Author:

Eoin Colfer was born in the south-east of Ireland. He began writing at an early age. Browbeaten by constant encouragement from his family, Eoin continued to write as an adult. His first novel, Benny and Omar, was a bestseller in Ireland, and Artemis Fowl, the first book featuring the brilliant young anti-hero was an immediate international hit.

From AudioFile:

Two features jump out to the listener of this YA science fiction novel. The first is that narrator Chiwetel Ejiofor performs brilliantly. He captures the cast of characters, teens who are forced to grow up fast because of the predicament they find themselves in. Ejiofor's accents are convincing, his timing impeccable. The second is that the story itself reads a bit like a futuristic OLIVER TWIST with its focus on orphans trying to survive in a brutal orphanage. In this case, the orphans are used as experimental guinea pigs for dangerous products; most don't live beyond the age of 15 and die cruel deaths. Colfer's imaginative story asks thoughtful questions that teens will enjoy pondering. S.D. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
