A little Harry Potter, a little Artemis Fowle, mixed with some Stephen King and entirely original! I really enjoyed this book and the sequel. It's fantasy and sci-fi for adults and great fun. I liked the reader very much. I loved his rendition of Eddie Drood, and all the characters' voices were unique. I admit, I'm a sucker for this genre. Nevertheless, I found it funny, exciting, and extremely well written. I was hooked from beginning to end.
I love the entire Artemis Fowl series, but I must admit I was a little disappointed in the last one. In this installment, Eoin Colfer is back to form with his characteristic clever story line, "fun"tastic dialogue, and delightful characters. I really enjoyed the plot as well as the twists with Artemis' character development. Unlike some of the other reviewers, I found the story provided a great balance for all the characters I've come to know and love. Plus, the combination of magic and technology was as intriguing as ever. Finally, Nathaniel Parker is by far one of my favorite narrators ever. I'm so happy he's back. He gives each character a unique and absolutely perfect voice.
