Some points I'd like to make:
1. Harkat Mulds is by far my favorite character. He had been wise (compared to the often-reckless-in-decisi...more
For the first time, the difference in Darren’s age and his appearance catch up with him. By this time he’s actually about twenty-eight years old, but he only looks about fifteen. The strange thing is, I don’t notice any difference in his narration between twenty-eight year-old self and his f...more

tapi kalo bisa membandingkan dengan buku serial yang lain, semisal buku trudi cannavan ato harpot ato bahkan bukunya kho ping ho (1 seri bisa 6-8 buku saku. yang saya maksud seri yg berbeda) rasanya jauh banget.

I can relate myself to Darren. There is a lot going on in Darren's life. Its hard to think about school when his enemies could be trying to kill him. For me, it is tough to g...more
You know, I really have no mood to write this review, considering I just wrote 6 others today. Yes, I'm crazy, I read so many books in a day when my exams are round the corner. In my defense, I can only say I read fast and each bo...more
The author had good development in the main character. He showed how Darren really felt and how his thoughts on things had changed. He also showed how he accepted being what he is. The plot was very ongoing. It seemed that after every chapter you knew more about what was going on. There was never a boring part in the book. The book was written in recent times so I could understand the way tha...more

First off was the fact that Darren was forced to go to school, which I found hilarious since he didn't have a clue what was going on in his classes. I also liked that we were reunited with Debbie, and not left to wonder what had happened to her since she had just disappeared off the face of the book.
Lots of action, lots o...more
