I read the first book in this series; I thought it was pretty good. I haven’t gotten around to reading the other books in the series yet though.

I've got to reread chapter 1 of Time Paradox at some point. Prefferably when I'm alone so as to not be accused of being insane. The twins are too funny for words.

Simple-toon, me? Quite probably, yes.

Re: Artemis Fowl Thread
 
Has anyone listened to the Artemis Fowl audiobooks? I've always enjoyed listening to audiobooks, particularly at work, which would be extremely boring otherwise. Nathaniel Parker has done an amazing job with them, and really brings the characters to life. I love all his voices, especially the ones for Artemis, Root and Foaly. They are spot on, in my opinion.

I was disappointed at first to find that Nathaniel Parker hadn't read the Time Paradox. Enn Reitel's performance isn't very good, especially when you compare it to Nathanial Parker's. Reitel's voices don't suit the characters, particularly Butler and Foaly. And he's not very good with accents either. That's one thing I love about Nathaniel Parker, the fact that his accents are spot on.

I have since found out that Nathaniel Parker has recorded the Time Paradox, and it will be released in the next month or so.

I thought Time Paradox was a splendid read. I love the definitive change that we're seeing in Artemis. He seems so normal - especially compared to the 10 year old version of himself! Colfer, I think, hit a home run with this one. :tu:

Well it kind of liked young artemis better :lol:, he was a bit more interesting, but older artemis is pretty cool all the same. His intents may be better, but he's still sly and cunning :p. The twins were so cute though :lol: Simpletoon :love:.

I know what you mean, but spoiler tags for those very unsimpletoonish artemis fowl readers who can guess what you mean even without reading the book ;).

Ok...well, I've read it, but I'm guessing tons of people haven't yet

I haven't read it yet. I really like the series but not enough to buy the book brand new at the price it is at the moment.

My mom wouldn't let me buy it either, but I got to read it at Barnes and Noble. But I will definitely be buying it when the paperback comes out and I can read it properly. I just can't handle being in the dark :p. I really want to reread the first book, but they only had hardcover at the store

I am a big fan of the public library. Harry Potter 7 was the last book I ever purchased for myself, and I am certain the book before it was Harry Potter 6.

i like the public library when it's for non popular books...unlike artemis fowl, because then i end up on year long waiting lists...

Ah, the trick is to get your name on the waiting list as soon as you hear a book is going to be published. I have been in the top 10 for the last 3 books I have had waitlisted.

lol library is bad for popular books because even if you are 10th on the list it will be probably 10-14 weeks of wait.

Re: Artemis Fowl Thread
 
actually, last time i was like 10th for elsewhere, but I ended up getting a call that i could pick it up like 14 months later

I love the Artemis Fowl books!
I just read Artemis Fowl and the Time Paradox, it was fantastic. The only problem with it is that I don't like time paradoxes, they're so confusing...

Voldemorts8thHorcrux September 17th, 2008 9:46 pm

Re: Artemis Fowl Thread
 
:rotfl: i know what you mean. Actually the entire book is a total time paradox

Spoiler: show
if Artemis took the monkey, that would mean that the younger artemis would know about fairies far earlier, i think. Either way, if it was "real" my guess would be that Artemis would know exactly what had happened anyways.

Yes, it is.

Spoiler: show
And I think that if Artemis hadn't gone back in time, he would never found out about fairies either. At the end of the book, ten-year-old Artemis thinks he had a dream about fairies. We know it wasn't a dream, but I think that lead him to discovering the People. I believe (correct me if I'm Wrong) that Artemis was 12 when he captured Holly Short, and two years would be about how much time he would need to get enough information about the People to capture one of them. Thinking about this made me even more confusing, but I think I understand it ;)

maybe that part isn't a time paradox...but I just have a feeling that something else is....what about mulch?
