Publisher's Summary

Artemis has committed his entire fortune to a project he believes will save the planet and its inhabitants, both human and fairy. Can it be true? Has goodness taken hold of the world’s greatest teenage criminal mastermind?

Captain Holly Short is unconvinced, and discovers that Artemis is suffering from Atlantis Complex, a psychosis common in guilt-ridden fairies. Symptoms include obsessive-compulsive behavior, paranoia, multiple personality disorder and, in extreme cases, embarrassing professions of love to a certain feisty LEPrecon fairy.

Unfortunately, Atlantis Complex has struck at the worst possible time. A deadly foe from Holly’s past is intent on destroying the actual city of Atlantis. Can Artemis escape the confines of his mind—and the grips of a giant squid—in time to save the underwater metropolis and its fairy inhabitants?

Artemis Fowl has lost his mind... Just when the world needs him most.

    "Madness!"

    Artemis is crazy yet he is still brilliant enough to figure it out! i mean even his own mind is not enough to win against him! in this Artemis book we see our brave irish hero slowly descend into madness, while he tries to concur his own mind he faces space probes, his complex of being a nut, a giant squid, and an enemy everyone over looked he slowly goes and along with Holly, Foaly, Butler, Diggums, and a new "person" Orion we see them go through thick, thin and gelatinous goo.

    "Good story telling but to much preaching"

    Eoin Colfer, Creates a good story with good characters but his books have become more and more preachy on man is bad and destroying the world line. I do not select books to get preached about subjects in this case global warming that quite frankly have a questionable basis I am 40 but and have lived long enough to remember when I was a kid being told that we were causing a new Ice age. Yet science now say we are causing warming that has been going on 100 yrs. yeah right and we are all going to die from the ozone hole and acid rain.

    Before reading this book please read state of fear by Michael Crichton (author of Jurasic park).

    "Unfortunately..."

    The Artemis Fowl series is wonderfully original and engaging. Unfortunately The Atlantis Complex is not on par with the rest of them. It still has its moments of Colfer's signature wit and charm, but feels like a let down in many other areas. As much as it is sad to say, it seems like the series had run its course with the fifth or sixth book, and this installment adds little.

    On the bright side, Nathaniel Parker's narration is a brilliant as ever.

    "Fun, fun, fun! I love this book!"

    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.

    "Good...But better in book form"

    The reader does good, but he ruins it a bit when you have read the others. Eon did a great job with the book- but artimis and holley lacked a bit in this book. Not much with mulch either. Liked others ones better.

    "I missed artemus"

    This was not the best book in the series. The plot was interesting in that the bad guy was not as cut and dry as in the past but the interplay between artemus and the rest of the characters was not as amusing as in the past. I was still glad to have read the Atlantis Complex because I just plain missed Artemus and all his friends.

    "Fairies with an attitude!"

    This is my first book of the Fowl series and I enjoyed it. Never though of Fairies and Pixies with weapons of mass destruction but hey it is the 21st century! It was an easy listen that the whole family can enjoy. Well written with good imaging and stayed on task without a lot of filler fluff. Excellent narration by N. Parker. How do you remember all those voices?

    Story
    "More exciting than the Time Paradox"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes; if you've read the first 6 Artemis Fowl books, you might as well read this one because it's at least as good as the other recent books in the series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Artemis because his character was developed in a different way than in the other books.


    What does Nathaniel Parker bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His Irish accent is good for the character narrations.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did listen to it all in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    I look forward to the release of the next and final book in the Artemis Fowl series, the Last Guardian.

    Story
    "It just keeps getting better and better and better"
    Where does The Atlantis Complex rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Ranks amongst the highest I owe and have listened to. This one and the one before it have made me giggle and sometimes outright guffaw. Artemis's alter ego Orion is so out of date, so unlike Artemis himself that it's hilarious. The phase


    What does Nathaniel Parker bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Nathaniel is perfect! Unlike some readers, he has a range of voices that don't sound all the same. Even Jim Dale (reader of the Harry Potter series) isn't this good, 75% of his women characters sounded old and drunk! You can tell when it's Artemis, Butler, Mulch, Holly, etc. without even needing to be told who is speaking. Many of the situations would not have been brought to life as well if I was just reading the book. He knows when to pause for effect and has perfect timing for both comedy and drama. If all books were read by Nathaniel, I would be a happy listener!


    Any additional comments?

    Some series peak around book 3, its like the authors run out of ideas and use the same stuff over and over again with different vilians or the story is just dragged out on and on for book after book. The Artemis Fowl series gets more entertaining as Mr. Colfer becomes more in touch with his characters and creates new situations for them to get themselves into. His writing grows as his characters grow.
