    The Wish List is no Artemis Fowl but, damn it, if I didn t love it For a long time now I ve had a dislike to heaven hell angel demon books I can t quite explain why but from all paranormal books I dislike books about that certain topic the least However, Eoin Colfer shows with The Wish List how you write a truly great book in this topic It was fun, very humoristic I laughed a lot But it was also very heart warming.Eoin Colfer always creates amazing characters that I love Meg Finn was one The Wish List is no Artemis Fowl but, damn it, if I didn t love it For a long time now I ve had a dislike to heaven hell angel demon books I can t quite explain why but from all paranormal books I dislike books about that certain topic the least However, Eoin Colfer shows with The Wish List how you write a truly great book in this topic It was fun, very humoristic I laughed a lot But it was also very heart warming.Eoin Colfer always creates amazing characters that I love Meg Finn was one of them Though I tend to readbooks where the main characters are 16 , I really like Eoin s characters who tend to beof the age of 12 Meg was 14 in this book and I loved her She had a lot to deal with in her life, like her mother dying, which left her all alone with her awful stepfather When she gets involved in a attempted robbery of the elderly Lowrie McCall together with Belch things go wrong when an explosion occurs which causes for both Meg and Belch to die As a spirit, Meg ends up in limbo, right in the middle between hell and heaven To go to heaven she ll have to help Lowrie McCall to do all the things on his Wish List But Belch is on her heels to stop her from doing the good deed she ll do if she helps Lowrie.The Wish List is a very fast, light book but nevertheless amazing as I always expect from a Colfer book Is it the best book of him No, of course not That honor in my opinion goes to Artemis Fowl but if you want to read something different by him, you should definitely try it I m sure no one will be able to put it down once they start this adventure This review has also been posted on Bookfever and Owl Post Reviews

    From a blog post I wrote in 2006 The Wish List is another Eoin Colfer creation.The main character is Meg Flynn, an Irish girl whose Mother has passed away and whose Step Father is pretty much an uncaring, lazy slob Meg breaks into an old man s house with a neighborhood small time hood named Belch but things take a dark turn Meg and Belch end up dying.On the way to heaven, it s discovered that Meg s soul is equally balanced between good and evil so she s sent back to Earth to try to make amends From a blog post I wrote in 2006 The Wish List is another Eoin Colfer creation.The main character is Meg Flynn, an Irish girl whose Mother has passed away and whose Step Father is pretty much an uncaring, lazy slob Meg breaks into an old man s house with a neighborhood small time hood named Belch but things take a dark turn Meg and Belch end up dying.On the way to heaven, it s discovered that Meg s soul is equally balanced between good and evil so she s sent back to Earth to try to make amends to the old man from the break in If she helps him complete his Wish List things he regrets never doing , she gets to heaven If she fails, it s to the other side Satan and Beelzebub conspire against her by sending Belch s spirit to stop her from completing her task.As with his other books, Colfer doesn t talk down to his audience The situations and characters are realistic I know, Satan and St Peter might seemlike fantasy material but they re well constructed here and intelligently presented.Another thumbs up from me on this one

    I read this book because it was by Eoin Colfer, one of my two favorite authors, the other being Rick Riordan Also, I needed a pretty funny read and sure enough Eoin served me with his best It had The Colfer touch to it every page The story was a pretty cliched one Make amends with your enemies and do something good in your afterlife to gain entry into heaven An interesting character was Lowrie McCall He is lonely old man, a funny old man at that and is in a totally bad health condition M I read this book because it was by Eoin Colfer, one of my two favorite authors, the other being Rick Riordan Also, I needed a pretty funny read and sure enough Eoin served me with his best It had The Colfer touch to it every page The story was a pretty cliched one Make amends with your enemies and do something good in your afterlife to gain entry into heaven An interesting character was Lowrie McCall He is lonely old man, a funny old man at that and is in a totally bad health condition Meg Finn main character had to fulfill his Wish List thus the name , to make her aura blue and gain access to heaven which has St.Peter as the gatekeeper I thought giving him an iPhone to monitor the residents was a great touch But if she screws up any wish, her aura turn red and sends her to hell Also Satan and his assistant Beelzebub are trying desperately to get her to hell But Lowrie doesn t make life any easier for the 13 year old Meg He has some absurd wishes up his sleeve and is determined to get them done Satan was crouched in the corner of his office, playing a gameboy, Die alien scum he was saying feverishly. This quote perfectly shows how funny and creative the book is This is exactly why I like Eoin Colfer s writing style, it never ceases to surprise the reader Maybe ahemming the Master of the Underworld was a bit of a no no This quote also proves my point Overall it takes the Heaven and Hell concept to a whole new level.This book shows you that live life to the purest and fullest, helping and being nice to others when you have the chance, so that you wont repent it when you cant change the past Colfer you are great

    I m torn between giving this book one or two stars, but for my personal taste it veers heavilytowards the one Eoin Colfer just isn t an author that is much to my liking He s a bit too childish for my taste, and his humor veerstowards the isn t this funny and random rather than thesubtle A lot of his humor is also technologically based, with jokes revolving around people not being technologically gifted or knowing what the word upgrade means This might have been amusing I m torn between giving this book one or two stars, but for my personal taste it veers heavilytowards the one Eoin Colfer just isn t an author that is much to my liking He s a bit too childish for my taste, and his humor veerstowards the isn t this funny and random rather than thesubtle A lot of his humor is also technologically based, with jokes revolving around people not being technologically gifted or knowing what the word upgrade means This might have been amusing to me as a kid, but as an adult it s just grating Similarly, the devil playing a gameboy or wearing sweatpants just doesn t cut it for me I needsubstance to my humor.The basic plot is that Meg Finn dies in a failed break and entry alongside the thug she owed a favor to Since her aura is an even mix between good and bad she s allowed to return to earth for a certain period of time to skew it one way or the other Good deeds make her aura good, bad deeds make it bad The devil is as interested in Meg as God is, so he sends the thug Belch after her in order to sabotage the mission What follows is the run of the mill, girl and old man she saved in the break in go completing his list of things he wished he had done with his life..The book just didn t do much for me Meg wasn t a very likable protagonist and I don t feel her attitude changed very much over the course of the book She was rude, impatient, and showed next to no real character development She was too cool to really admit that she liked Lowrie the old man throughout the course of the book, and that gets rather old Not even their banter really developed much Eoin Colfer might be a good read for younger readers, but for me he just fell flat time and time again

    The Wish List Eoin Colfer The Wish List is a fantasy novel by Eoin Colfer who has also written the famous Arttemis Fowel series This story tells of the adventures of Meg Finn, a young teenage girl killed in a gas explosion, who must return to Earth to help the pensioner she tried to rob in order to secure a place in Heaven.Megs mother is dead and she lives with her lazy and abusive stepfather, her only living family member When Meg is forced to help the local idiotic criminal, Belch Brennan, The Wish List Eoin Colfer The Wish List is a fantasy novel by Eoin Colfer who has also written the famous Arttemis Fowel series This story tells of the adventures of Meg Finn, a young teenage girl killed in a gas explosion, who must return to Earth to help the pensioner she tried to rob in order to secure a place in Heaven.Megs mother is dead and she lives with her lazy and abusive stepfather, her only living family member When Meg is forced to help the local idiotic criminal, Belch Brennan, to rob Lowrie McCall, the attempted crime ends with disaster Dim witted Belch decides to scare Meg by shooting near a gas tank resulting in an explosion killing them both and the vicious dog Raptor.Belch s soul merges with the soul of his dog Raptors, making him half boy, half dog He is sent straight to hell Meg on the other hand has the perfect balance between good and evil which gives her the chance to redeem herself and get blue back in her aura She is sent back to help Lowrie complete the items on his Wish List However, Satan decides that he wants Megs soul and Belch is sent to capture Meg and make her bad.Following a confrontation at the Cliffs of Moher, Belch is destroyed and Megs final good deed, giving her stepfather a new life, gains her entry into Heaven where she is reunited with her mother The Wish List is a book which, in my opinion, is best suited for children aged between 11 and 14 years old The various themes and images portrayed throughout the story may set a good foundation for children s creative writing In my opinion, this is a wonderful, occasionally comical tale of forgiveness and redemption that can be enjoyed by both boys and girls, young and old alike

    The whole time I was reading this I couldn t help thinking through my teacher brain about the kids for whom this is intended I was wondering how many of them would get all the content based on Christian, specifically Catholic, ideas of the afterlife Colfer plays around with Saint Peter, and demons, and purgatory, and how a soul gets to heaven but most of the kids I know don t have any background knowledge in that stuff And I suppose if they did, they d probably be kind of religious and maybe The whole time I was reading this I couldn t help thinking through my teacher brain about the kids for whom this is intended I was wondering how many of them would get all the content based on Christian, specifically Catholic, ideas of the afterlife Colfer plays around with Saint Peter, and demons, and purgatory, and how a soul gets to heaven but most of the kids I know don t have any background knowledge in that stuff And I suppose if they did, they d probably be kind of religious and maybe their parents wouldn t want to let them read a book in which Saint Peter has a cell phone that he uses to make bargains with demons On the other hand, my religion student nerd self was kind of into it.That being said, Colfer has the right sense of humor for the adolescents he s aiming at and I did like the story The main relationship, between the spirit of a dead teenage girl and a dying elderly man is really touching and I think that was one of my favorite parts of the book I actually teared up a little bit toward the end

    I m torn between giving this book one or two stars, but for my personal taste it veers heavilytowards the one Eoin Colfer just isn t an author that is much to my liking He s a bit too childish for my taste, and his humor veerstowards the isn t this funny and random rather than thesubtle A lot of his humor is also technologically based, with jokes revolving around people not being technologically gifted or knowing what the word upgrade means This might have been amusing I m torn between giving this book one or two stars, but for my personal taste it veers heavilytowards the one Eoin Colfer just isn t an author that is much to my liking He s a bit too childish for my taste, and his humor veerstowards the isn t this funny and random rather than thesubtle A lot of his humor is also technologically based, with jokes revolving around people not being technologically gifted or knowing what the word upgrade means This might have been amusing to me as a kid, but as an adult it s just grating Similarly, the devil playing a gameboy or wearing sweatpants just doesn t cut it for me I needsubstance to my humor.The basic plot is that Meg Finn dies in a failed break and entry alongside the thug she owed a favor to Since her aura is an even mix between good and bad she s allowed to return to earth for a certain period of time to skew it one way or the other Good deeds make her aura good, bad deeds make it bad The devil is as interested in Meg as God is, so he sends the thug Belch after her in order to sabotage the mission What follows is the run of the mill, girl and old man she saved in the break in go completing his list of things he wished he had done with his life..The book just didn t do much for me Meg wasn t a very likable protagonist and I don t feel her attitude changed very much over the course of the book She was rude, impatient, and showed next to no real character development She was too cool to really admit that she liked Lowrie the old man throughout the course of the book, and that gets rather old Not even their banter really developed much Eoin Colfer might be a good read for younger readers, but for me he just fell flat time and time again

    The whole time I was reading this I couldn t help thinking through my teacher brain about the kids for whom this is intended I was wondering how many of them would get all the content based on Christian, specifically Catholic, ideas of the afterlife Colfer plays around with Saint Peter, and demons, and purgatory, and how a soul gets to heaven but most of the kids I know don t have any background knowledge in that stuff And I suppose if they did, they d probably be kind of religious and maybe The whole time I was reading this I couldn t help thinking through my teacher brain about the kids for whom this is intended I was wondering how many of them would get all the content based on Christian, specifically Catholic, ideas of the afterlife Colfer plays around with Saint Peter, and demons, and purgatory, and how a soul gets to heaven but most of the kids I know don t have any background knowledge in that stuff And I suppose if they did, they d probably be kind of religious and maybe their parents wouldn t want to let them read a book in which Saint Peter has a cell phone that he uses to make bargains with demons On the other hand, my religion student nerd self was kind of into it.That being said, Colfer has the right sense of humor for the adolescents he s aiming at and I did like the story The main relationship, between the spirit of a dead teenage girl and a dying elderly man is really touching and I think that was one of my favorite parts of the book I actually teared up a little bit toward the end
