The first book from Eoin Colfer
I've ever read.
It is thrilling and I red it in about two weeks. The other thing is that I borrowed it from school.

We were pleasantly surprised by this book with its unexpected twists and turns. We found it quite enjoyable and learned a little bit about mining in the 19th century in a fun way, i.e. even learned a few history points. We would highly recommend this audiobook.

This youth book was a fun beach read for an adult. Great BOCD narrator. Moments of brilliance and humor, but not on a par with the spectacular Artemis Fowl series.
