Présentation de l'éditeur

In my old school, we had fighting, no pool and there'd be vicious matches against the other schools . . . I miss all that stuff!



Moving to Africa is the worst thing that has ever happened to Benny Shaw. No one plays hurling (the best game on the planet) and the local school is run by hippies who like to talk about feelings. As if.


But when Benny meets wisecracking Omar (the name's Bond, James Bond Omar) who only speaks English in TV catchphrases, he decides that maybe life in this new country can be fun after all . . .

5.0 étoiles sur 5 International Coming-of-Age Story for Boys 3 mars 2008
Par Middle-aged Professor - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
My 12-year old son and I greatly enjoyed reading this funny, illuminating, and entertaining coming-of-age story. We haven't read Artemus Fowl, so I can't really compare it, but this book, on its own, is outstanding. It follows a familiar coming-of-age story arc---problem child runs into crisis from which he learns and grows---but the book offers so much more than that. The story is told from the perspective of the always-in-trouble protagonist, but without a hint of patronizing condescension. The "Irishness" of the book's language and culture, and the African setting both add deliciously to the mix. The story never flags: lots of laughter and no small amount of suspense. Clever and original; we loved it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 To any one who say this books is stupid - grow up! 22 décembre 2003
Par Moniker - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This book isn't supposed to be in the same style as Artemis Fowl. But, amazeningly, it far supasses it. The author weaves mystery, comedy and adventure in to a story whic to me, reminds me of a mixture of Survivor, Annie and the Producers.
The comedy is great. When i first read this book, i was 12, so i didn't reall y understand all of the jokes, but now, 2 years later, the jokes amuse to no end. The way that Benny and Omar communicate is classic, using TV terms like "I'm Bonds, James Bond Omar" to introduce ones self.
Okay. ENough of the fawning. Now to the plot. It's a great plot. Benny, a fairly self centered Irish preteen is moved with his family to Tunisia. There he teams up with a boy who lives in a cardboard box and has learn ed his english from TV. What follows is one of the best adeventures with children that i have ever read.
Omar, the boy, is basically living in poverty and with very little to survive on. He and BEnny instantly pair up and help each other out. Benny enjoys this all until Omar asks him to help kidnap Omars sick little sister.
Colfer writes it soooooo well. He had jokes at just the right time and develops Benny (and Omar a little bit) so well that you can really see the changes happening adn why. Despite the way that the book ended, i still enjoyed it emensly and Benny and Omar is one of my favorite books.
Ever.

What would you do if you had to move to Tunisia, Africa just because your dad got a promotion? Would you be happy for your dad and congratulate him? If you said yes to these questions then Benny did the exact opposite f you, in this fantastic realistic fiction by Eoin Colfer!!
Benny Shaw lives in his own little sarcastic and "not caring what other people think" kind of world. Having to move to Africa doesn't completely change that world, it just simply adjusts a little of it. There he finds out that the teachers' have their students call them by their first name but, Benny just calls them hippies. He also finds out that the students all hate him because of all his "negative energy," except one girl Grace that actually likes him. He also meets Omar who fools Benny into thinking he's still in Ireland
Each chapter has a title that's a little odd, for example chapter nine; Corpzublicked. It sounds weird now but throughout the book it explains itself.
I personally fell in love with this amazing book because it explains a crisis that a teenager would actually go through. I recommend this book to anyone that absolutely loves a good book! Eoin Colfer is a great author in this amazing thriller Benny and Omar!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the best friendship stories ever! 11 décembre 2008
Par Pampered.Pixie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I'm a huge Artemis Fowl, so when I was at the library and I saw the book Benny and Omar by Eoin Colfer and decided to check it out. I LOVED it! Benny and Omar is the story of twelve year old Benny, who moves all the way from his home in Ireland to Tunisia. In Tunisia Benny has trouble making friends with the other European children in the village he moved too. (Benny's dad works at a EuroGas plant, so Benny's not actually in contact with many Tunisians.) When Benny works his way over the village wall he makes friends with Omar, a young local. Omar lives in a small shack outside the village Benny lives in. Benny and Omar quickly become friends, and as the two become closer Benny realizes the hardships his friend faces on a regular base.
This story is amazingly funny, but when you step back and look past the laughter you see an amazing peice of literature. This book should be read by everyone!
3.0 étoiles sur 5 Nice character growth, unusual setting, odd narration 7 août 2015
Par Swank Ivy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This was a nifty little book about a sort of selfish, sheltered kid having to leave his happy life as a hurling player in Ireland to move with his family to Tunisia because of his dad's job. I really liked that it showed how his family (and the other people from white-majority/industrialized nations) was having a very different experience of Africa than do the native Tunisians, and the way Benny acted out and talked back to teachers and other students to establish himself as NOT a victim was pretty intriguing. I also did like his relationship with Omar. What I didn't like (or really believe) was the way the two communicated. Sometimes I couldn't actually even follow it, and other times I just thought it was improbable that Omar would be able to communicate in catch phrases from television if they were literally the only English he knew. (If he didn't know those words outside of the catch phrases, I don't know why he knew when to use them. I could buy a few of them, like singing a Pepsi jingle to explain that you want a soda, but other than that it seemed really unlikely.) I thought it was interesting how the story could also get you sort of invested in what was going on with hurling even if you had no personal knowledge or interest in the sport. I was kinda expecting hurling to become more central to the plot as it went on, and it became less and less important.

I didn't like some of the condescending, emasculating names Benny called his brother and the comparison of his supposed femininity with weakness, and I didn't like that there was some really weird mentally-ill-fat-character stuff that was kind of embarrassing to read (they basically made this one intellectually disabled kid an overenthusiastic fat joke, requiring the other characters to stop him from causing the protagonist bodily harm by bribing him with candy). There were just some weird choices made by the way the story was told, not the way the characters showed their values. I thought some of the character growth for Benny was well handled, and I did enjoy reading it most of the time, but kinda just like hurling, it wasn't the kind of thing that really gets me going.
