Fun story with an enthusiastic narrator makes for a great listen. You wont be disapointed, definatly worth a credit! A nice begining to the series, getting to know the main characters.
We often listen to audio books on long car journeys and Nathaniel Parker reading Artemis Fowl is every family member's favorite.
The characters and the humor really draw us into the story.
The characters have unique voices and his reading is seamless for all genders, ages and species :) I am partial to Mulch Diggems and Butler.
We almost always listen in the car, so it is not usually possible to listen in one sitting, but the story is suspenseful, so it is hard to break away.
Nathaniel Parker really brings out the humor in Eoin Colfer's story. They make an excellent team.
Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.
I realize this is a kids book (sort of) but I enjoyed it immensely. Gave a new, interesting, and funny take on mythical creatures. Most certainly worth a quick and lighthearted read.
I love to read, but now that I drive, I can't read on trips anymore. I am on the road a good 8 hours a week, so I can go through a book a week. The sound quality has an annoying static sound, but maybe the enhanced download will be better.
I love listening while I ride in the car, wash the dishes, work on a project, exercise, or take a nap.
Witty fantasy adventure.
Finding out this author's interpretation of the Leprechaun's-pot-of-gold-at-the-end-of-the-rainbow myth.
From the first moment, this book was not what I expected. Set in the present time, the main antagonist turns out to be a young boy of 12, a computer genius and criminal mastermind. The intermingling of magic, technology, code breaking, and cleverly altered folklore makes Artemis Fowl an interesting, engaging, and entertaining listen.
Good Story and very unique characters. Good read.
Child genius runs the world.
This story was expertly told, moved at a fast pace and kept my 12 year old and I both entertained during a long car trip. I highly recommend it.
His witt and money
the story line and the Holly Short
It did put a smile on my face
Read it and have fun with the major players
I have all the Artemis books in paperback and on Audible. I find them so funny and lovable that I listen over and over.
Mulch and Butler are my favorite charactors.
I was amazed at how much better the first book is when read by Nathaniel Parker. I found the Artemis character very unsympathetic especially in the first book until he was brought to life by Parker.
