3.0 von 5 Sternen Funny and a light read, but no Artemis Fowl [NO SPOILERS] 3. August 2013
Von Dara Fennema - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I enjoyed the Artemis Fowl series immensely, finding them original and quirky. I located this one on the Kindle store and thought that I might as well try it.

I understand that Eoin Colfer wrote this in his early days of writing. It has some funny parts, and being Irish myself, it's nice to see the references to hurling, which wouldnt be found in other books.

What I didn't really like about it is the fact that the climax fell flat. I had to read over it three times to figure out what was going on. Action scenes aren't Eoin's strong point, even sometimes in the Artemis Fowl books, but the mistakes were really apparent here. The tension was all over the place, dropping the suspense like a stone. The prose was confusing in places and I didn't enjoy it at all. What could've been an amazing scene just... wasn't.

The plot was also quite light, with a lot of filler. SImple enough story, done a few times: boy goes to foreign country, hates it there, then meets an oddball character on the wrong side of the law. It had a lot of padding, namely some comical scenes, that I did enjoy but they felt like they were dragging the plot down a little.

All in all, it was quick to read and had some good moments, but the writing and fluffy plot let it down. I love Eoin Colfer's later books though, (I absolutely reccommend the Artemis Fowl series) and hope he keeps writing.
5.0 von 5 Sternen good read! 12. Mai 2013

Regardless of whether you are an adult or a child (or looking to purchase something for one or the other), this book is a good read. Eoin Colfer is a transformational author being able to easily write sci-fi to reality. Good story!
3.0 von 5 Sternen pretty dang obvious that this is one of Colfer's first ... 7. Juni 2016
Von Dione Basseri - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
It's....pretty dang obvious that this is one of Colfer's first works. Not BAD, but just barely adequate for publishing. Honestly, I'm surprised this one got an audiobook recording at all. It's just...very mediocre.

While there's something to be said about Colfer's look at a country I've never seen referenced in literature (except...Colfer's own, in the second Artemis Fowl book....), there are a few points where things feel a bit wrong. I was shocked when the mother of the family referred to Tunisa as "some uncivilized pit, with diseased water and mosquitoes and foreigners," going on to claim that "the only culture they have belonged to the Romans." This is very early in the book, but we never really get a refutation of these pretty prejudice words. In fact, adoption of European culture is a pretty big plot point, with Omar only able to communicate with Benny using television quotes. (And how...would he understand what those quotes meant? No clue.)

Still, Benny is shown as a very open-minded character, doing his best to balance demands from his family and the struggles of Omar. And, when the big test comes, Benny opts to ruin his own chances at an easy life at home so that Omar might have a far, far better improvement in his own life.

Colfer's writing returns repeatedly to Tunisia, where he did missionary work in his younger days, and he is likely to write about it again. Hopefully with a bit more interesting plots and a fewer prejudice statements from prominent characters.

What would you do if you had to move to Tunisia, Africa just because your dad got a promotion? Would you be happy for your dad and congratulate him? If you said yes to these questions then Benny did the exact opposite f you, in this fantastic realistic fiction by Eoin Colfer!!
Benny Shaw lives in his own little sarcastic and "not caring what other people think" kind of world. Having to move to Africa doesn't completely change that world, it just simply adjusts a little of it. There he finds out that the teachers' have their students call them by their first name but, Benny just calls them hippies. He also finds out that the students all hate him because of all his "negative energy," except one girl Grace that actually likes him. He also meets Omar who fools Benny into thinking he's still in Ireland
Each chapter has a title that's a little odd, for example chapter nine; Corpzublicked. It sounds weird now but throughout the book it explains itself.
I personally fell in love with this amazing book because it explains a crisis that a teenager would actually go through. I recommend this book to anyone that absolutely loves a good book! Eoin Colfer is a great author in this amazing thriller Benny and Omar!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the best friendship stories ever! 11. Dezember 2008
Von Pampered.Pixie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I'm a huge Artemis Fowl, so when I was at the library and I saw the book Benny and Omar by Eoin Colfer and decided to check it out. I LOVED it! Benny and Omar is the story of twelve year old Benny, who moves all the way from his home in Ireland to Tunisia. In Tunisia Benny has trouble making friends with the other European children in the village he moved too. (Benny's dad works at a EuroGas plant, so Benny's not actually in contact with many Tunisians.) When Benny works his way over the village wall he makes friends with Omar, a young local. Omar lives in a small shack outside the village Benny lives in. Benny and Omar quickly become friends, and as the two become closer Benny realizes the hardships his friend faces on a regular base.
This story is amazingly funny, but when you step back and look past the laughter you see an amazing peice of literature. This book should be read by everyone!
