Very disappointed that Nathaniel Parker did not narrate this latest installment in the Artemis Fowl series. I had grown so used to his characterizations and really enjoyed them. It was a bit like having all the actors change in the middle of the season on your favorite TV show. Not that Enn did a bad job, it just wasn't the same.
This story seemed a bit draggy and convoluted. Artemis goes back in time to save a lemur that his e...more

But, Angeline Fowl is sick. Deathly ill. And it's because of magic. She has been infected with a plague like illness that struck down fa...more
Everyone must give Artemis Fowl a chance! It's a great series and one of my absolute favorites!
Butler is still awesome as ever.
"I am intrigued," said ten-year-old Artemis Fowl, studying the two individuals in the Bentley trunk. "Something extraordinary has happened here."
"Hardly extraordinary," said Butler, checking the girl's pulse. "Two thieves somehow broke into the manor."
"They bypassed all the security. Not as much as a blip on the motion sensors?"
"Nothing. I just happened on them duri...more
English Book Review
In the book Artemis Fowl and The Time Paradox Artemis' mother is very ill and this disease is fatal and she caught it almost 'magically' and doctors, and the family are puzzled. A little bit later in the story Artemis discovers the mysterious disease is indeed magic, and is known as Spelltrophy, the N˚1 (a magical peace keeper fairy organization) had 'eradicated' the disease before. Artemis did the research and figured out the disease spreads with the use of...more
I do hope that Colfer breaks his rule of having a passage of time pass tween books as I really want to see his parents react to getting their little 'Arty' back.
Despite the annoying change in edition/covers I believe Colfer still has it in him to pull this one out his ass. I hear whispers of an implied seventh too.
These books are very different than the Potter books, even though they attract the same audience. These are fantasy/sc...more
I really do enjoy this series. The characters, especially, are fully defined and work well together. Artemis, Butler, Holly, Mulch, Foaly, Root, have all taken a journey through the course of the series and become different people.
This new volume either underscores that or tears into pieces. Authors who meddle with time...more

Reminiscent of ‘Doctor Who’, Artemis Fowl is a young criminal genius travelling through time to face man-eating Trolls, high-tech Faries and flame-throwing Goblins. You could not find a children’s/ teens adventure story with so much inspired creative vision beyond your wildest imagination; it is very exciting!
In ‘Artemis Fowl and the time paradox’ he swaps criminal activity for a little bit of magic, (althoug...more

In 'Die verlorene Kolonie' retteten Artemis und Holly die Insel Hybras, aber retten ist etwas zu viel gesagt, eher retteten sie die Einwohner der Insel. Und unter diesen Einwohnern war auch der mächtige Zauberlehrling Knirps oder auch Nummer Eins genannt ' zum großen Glück für Artemis und seine Familie, denn Angeline Fowl, die Mutter von Artemis, ist schwer erkrankt und das ei...more

I have truly grown fond of the Artemis Fowl series since I first read it as a child, which is probably the reason why I can go back and read the first four books in the series, despite the younger age demographic and slightly juvenile writing. The first four books were great fun to read because they had charm and they made enough sense for me to suspend re...more

I am the future queen of this world, at the very least. You may refer to me as Mistress Koboi for the next five minutes. After that you may refer to me as Aaaaarrrrgh, hold your throat, die screaming, and so on.”
