The Dangerous Days of Daniel X by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge

Original.  Entertaining.  Delightful.  Major Kudos awarded to the authors for creativity, imagination, and being unafraid to demonstrate symptoms of probable insanity.

I loved this book!  Sure the alien supervillains are more than a little over the top.  And the hero has way too many totally awesome powers.  My sixteen-year-old nephew would love to have them.  But, hey, if you’re going to take a trip down fantasy road, it might as well be, well, fantastic.  Go all out.

I thoroughly enjoyed The Dangerous Days of Daniel X, and eagerly anticipate the sequel.  What feats of imagination will they come up with this time?

Rating:  4.25 out of 5 stars.

Now about Brida and webster12’squestion:

Let me ask you a question: Why do you think you were being preached to while reading this book?

Perhaps preached is too strong a word, except in terms of a religious lecture.  In Brida, it seems to me like we’re are all being “Taught”, in a way.  There is very little plot throughout much of the book, except as a kind of backdrop.  If that makes any sense.  In The Alchemist and The Witch of Portobello there is a story that holds and interests the reader.  This is why most of us read fiction.  Read novels.  Brida doesn’t do that.  At least not for me.  I hope that answered your question.
