GOD DAMNIT ARTEMIS.
That pretty sums up my feelings about the whole book, as penguinkye will testify. I loved it, obviously. It was a lot like the last one in terms of last-minute wait-what-the-hell
-oh-God-no-you-can't-be-serious plot twists (and not too last minute, I mean I could physically see how much more of the book there was to go, but geeze
). It is an incredible, fun, fast-paced novel, just like all the others, and the characters...the characters...
GOD DAMNIT ARTEMIS
the characters are, as usual, awesome. I love the Artemis Fowl books because they're well-written (the occasional comma splice, but you get used to it), incredibly funny (including potty humor which, at this point, has become funny because of sheer character connection), and guaranteed to take you for a fun ride. I highly, highly, HIGHLY recommend going to the library and getting them and reading them. Or, heck, buying them.
Also, I still want to know where Eoin Colfer gets all this time to travel and stuff. rowana
, if you ever meet him again, ask him for me, okay? Or...wait...*scurries off to website*
See, I bought The Time Paradox
right after it came out. I paid $17.99 for this book. I never
buy books wholeprice unless I have a giftcard to (damnit, I did
have a giftcard to burn, I just now realize) burn, but I love Artemis Fowl THAT MUCH. A brief listing of my affections for them:Artemis Fowl
is love. Just pure, twelve-year-old genius vs. fairy love.Artemis Fowl: The Arctic Incident
is CRAZY TIMES IN SIBERIA love. Also Holly is pretty in a black-widow kind of way.Artemis Fowl: The Eternity Code
was, for the longest time, the last book, and it is such a satisfying
last book too, which says a lot for it. (Also I got it while waiting for Goblet of Fire
to come out.)Artemis Fowl: Opal Deception
was the surprise, the HOMG WHAT NEW BOOK? It is not as good as the previous three, because Eoin Colfer (who is the author, btws) had a bit of trouble with the two different kinds of Artemises he had. I have only read it once (versus multiple times on all the others).Artemis Fowl: Lost Colony
is HOMG SUPERFANTASTIC OMG LOVE. I was a bit wary of getting it after the disappointment of Opal Deception, but in this one, Artemis is back
in all his glory. I LOVE this novel.
Which leads me to Artemis Fowl: The Time Paradox( cut for spooooooooooooooooooooilers )
