W.A.R.P The Reluctant Assassin Book 1 by Eoin Colfer is not a terrible book; it is very descriptive and has some unique and different vocabulary. Despite these facts, this book did not satisfy my expectations. The book did not make a lot of sense and I would have to re-read paragraphs and still not understand what the author was trying to say. Also, this book was not very interesting. I found myself bored because the plot was a bit dull and not very strong. Although I found the idea very interesting, I do not believe the author fulfilled his purpose. This book has some foul language, gory descriptions/violence, and is also a hard read because this book has a lot of difficult vocabulary. If I had to, I would recommend this book for an audience of 12 years or older.
