Review of W.A.R.P by Eoin Colfer
I picked this book up because I enjoyed the Artemis Fowl series, among other things, and I had not read an Eoin Colfer book in quite some time.
I was slightly disappointed for the first few chapters. It took a little while for me to warm up to Chevron. I liked Riley from the start, though, which helped.
Soon after that, I hit a point where I did not want to put the book down until I found out what happened next. That feeling lasted until I finished the book.
The main villain is a killer who thinks Jack the Ripper is a gaudy amateur. The variety of characters that abound in Victorian London gave depth, humor, and interest to the story.
So although I may wish it had a less rocky start, the journey itself was certainly worthwhile. W.A.R.P. is another very enjoyable book from Mr. Colfer.
I look forward to the sequel.
I give it 4 stars.
