This installment of Artemis Fowl, is not my favorite, but it has not put me off the series completely. I really can't put my finger on what I didn't like, however I know that it was the dulcet voice of Nathaniel Parker that secured the finish.
I'll read at least the next book before I decide whether to finish the series or not.
Update: I have finished the series and would recommend it to everyone.
I recommend this audiobook for its performance and the plot. It has the best performance of any book I've ever listened to!
I would compare this book to Daniel X because both books are about a boy with special abilities and both of them go on adventures. They're are both funny and fascinating.
I liked Nathaniel Parker's emotion and pace, not rushing a single sentence unless that was meant to happen in the book.
During this audiobook I had many emotions, because of the very sad parts of the book, even though they always worked out fine. It was a very interesting book with lots of feelings and emotion in it.
The book was extremely good and should be able to satisfy any reader.
Excellent, you just want to get all the books. Artemis, Holly, Mulch, Pholly all great charactors.
I enjoyed the personality of Number One
The reactivation of the elder demons
The underdog demon (Number One) turning out to be the greatest demon ever. Also, this book gives you a different perception of the Irish demons.
The whole family enjoyed listening to this on our drives around on vacation. The little violence is not graphic so this is good for the younger kids too.
Funny, imaginative, smart.
I love the voice Parker gives to Mulch, the dwarf.
My daughter and I love the Artemis Fowl books--the rich characters, diabolical plot twists, hilarious dry wit--but I never read them, I always listen to the audio. Nathaniel Parker reads the whole series, bringing all the characters to life through an amazing variety of accents, dialects and attitudes. Artemis, Holly the elf, Mulch the dwarf, Foalie the techie centaur are all more real to me because of Parker's remarkable performance. He's the best reader I've come across.
I have recommended this book to lots of kids and several adults. It's all around fun.
I like the introduction of the demons and particularly Number One.
My favorite character has always been Butler. I love the way Nathaniel Parker gives him that touch of humor that helps keep things from getting too heavy. I love all of his voices.
