This was Fagan as an insane assasin who's training the Artful Dodger meeting up with Dr. Who.
He could have done a better job by being more considerate of his fans and not pieced together old fiction. It lacked more than just imagination. As a fan of Colfer's novels, I kept hoping for things to turn around. I just may return the recording.
When the announcer said, 'Audible hopes..."
No. I'm not convinced this was all written by Colfer. But being so vacuous, it should really do well with American audiences. Perhaps that was the intent. I know that Hollywood would've ruined Artemis Fowl (making it into a pieced together mess). And this may be Colfer snickering at Hollywood and American audiences. Still, I take umbrage at being a true fan in the middle who gets the smack.
The reader was brilliant. The performance tops the story. And that is the only benefit owing to Colfer's latest. He was taking a p..s.
NO. A god-awful amalgamation. Dagnabit!
NO. Painful. This would be considered creative plaigerism(sp) if such a thing existed. But he's cleverly rewritten sentences (not ideas). GEEBUS, can't anyone else hear this? I mean really, listen. And this is being touted as the next best thing? Really?
There was nothing wrong with the narration.
Other than the narration, it did not. It is an insult to readers over 11 or anyone whose read a book or a comic book.
How is it this stuff makes bestseller? This is just like film in America. Everyone is reading or watching foreign artists. Because this is what publishers are doing. Printing the same formulaic trash lacking an ounce of creativity. Every physical trait described, every two minutes a phrase repeated, every page a copy of someone else's story put into an amalgamation that screams "I figured out how to patch together a story from a host of other authors. Anyone who's read extensively will see Delaney, Colfer, Gaiman, Pratchett, Funke and a host of others to include more excellent writersthrown together page by page into this crap. "If you could take a man's life, you should look into his eyes..." Man this is just the absolute pits. Even the part of the dog/pups is straight out of Delaney's book.
