The Artemis Fowl Files (Artemis Fowl 0.5 & 1.5)
The Artemis Fowl Files will delight Eoin Colfer's legions of fans with its behind-the-scenes interviews with the much-loved characters including: Holly Short, Mulch Diggums, and Artemis Fowl.
Two brand-new Artemis Fowl short stories including: "LEPrecon," th...more
Of course, I had to actually read this book myself. Scandalous! What with it being full of puzzles and diagrams, it doesn’t really lend itself to the audio book format, even though I would have loved to hear Nathaniel Parker narrate th...more
LEPrecon was somewhat of a disappointment. The villain, who has a very interesting background, turns out to be flat in the end and the story was just lacking the usual Fowl smartness and edginess. The story is...more
The book contains two short stories: "LEPrecon" describes Holly's initiation from Traffic duty to Recon. "Seventh Dwarf" follows Mulch Diggums, my favorite Artemis Fowl character, as he and Artemis team up to steal a famous tiara.
The rest of the book is comprised of "notes" from Artemis Fowl's files on the fairy folk--the fairy code and a key to decode it and interviews with the main charactersare the highlights.
#0.5 is titled "LEPrecon" and is the story of Captain Holly Short's initiation into Recon (from Traffic) - features Commander Root and Captain Trouble Kelp. This short story gives us good background on Holly - that underneath her impulsiveness, seeming inability to obey orders and brash jock behaviour,...more
This book was very interesting to say the least, I was a bit skeptical in the beginning. Mainly because I’m not a big fan of books that have fairies and magic in it, but this book changed my view on that opinion.
What kept me reading this book was that I was always wondering what was going to happen next. The story kept me on my toes from the very start; you never knew what was going to happen. The plot of the story probably wasn’t the greatest because it was very simple b...more
The stories may be short but they are great stories. The interveiws and information on some of Foaly's ga...more
This sort of tie-in gets lost when you listen to audio books; a real shame as Nathaniel Parker (who narrates the unabridged novels) does so with such aplomb. It would have been nice if LEPrecon had been included as an audio bonus with The Opal Decept...more
I must say that while I’m writing this – I have no recollection what the first story was about – which either sums up my memory or shows that the story wasn’t particularly memorable.
I didn’t really enjoy the supplementary material....more
This book is pretty much what you'd expect, containing notes, diagrams, and maps relating to the series along with a couple short stories about the characters' other adventures. The short stories are pr...more
(I know... Im a nerd...). It was really fun. I dont know if the code was Colfer's idea or his editor but that little code elevated the books to something more than a story for me, it became a real puzzle and enga...more
Bonus material includes a fairy field guide, character interviews, Artemis' report card, a Gnommish translator, a...more
Si scopre per esempio come Spinella sia diventata un agente della LEP. E già allora dimostra una vera propensione nel disobbedire agli ordini e a pensare di testa sua, tentando sempre di salvare la situazione con il minor numero possibile di vittime. Fin da subito riesce a stupire il capitano Tubero, nonostante la sua riluttanza a considerare Spi...more
It contains interviews, some puzzles, the Gnommish script decoder, interviews with the characters and the better part of the whole thing, two short stories. One of them is an event that takes place before the start of the series, which is Holly Short’s promotion...more
It always seems to me that the major flaw of writers, particularly in the young-adult...more
