I like books. I like books of all kinds, and I very seldom hate any of them. I hated this book. For some reason, this book has generated a rabid following and fans are insistent about it’s fine qualities. They all lie. This book was horrible. It’s about a very young genius/millionaire/uber-villian who does his best to wreak havoc for no apparent reason. I guess I was supposed to like Artimis. I found him annoying, grating and just mean. Maybe because I hate those qualities in people, but I really hated them in this anti-hero. Bleh. I don’t give books 1 star very often, but I have to say this book earned it.
