Yes ... the performer does a wonderful job interpreting the tongue-in-cheek genius of Eoin Colfer.
The emergence of demon #1
The disciplined desperation of Artemis in
I suppose eventually Artemis Fowl must grow up -- if he does then I will too..... (wink).
A demon named Catch that can be seen by most only in his "eating" form, an accidental and reluctant demon keeper, the salt-seeking king of the Djinn choosing Augustus Brine as his knight errant, flour explosions as invisible quarry tracking strategy (saw that on "Alphas" on TV last year as well), uneasy romance and murder -- it is a quirky cast. The book is entertaining in a frequently clever and occasionally vulgar sort of way. The demon may be the most rational of all. Good listen...
Second only to Treasure Mountain, really enjoy the story arc and David Strathairn's voice - he seems to suit the material especially well.
Tyrel was my favorite character in this book ... best developed in my opinion.
Yes, I have listened to several of David Strathairn's performances. This one is fine, though again I think the best work is in Treasure Mountain. Or maybe Lonesome Gods.
