Publisher's Summary

Twelve-year-old Artemis Fowl is a millionaire, a genius, and, above all, a criminal mastermind. But even Artemis doesn’t know what he’s taken on when he kidnaps a fairy, Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon Unit. These aren’t the fairies of bedtime stories; these fairies are armed and dangerous.

Artemis thinks he has them right where he wants them...but then they stop playing by the rules.

"Stay back, Human. You don’t know what you’re dealing with."

Listen to the entire Artemis Fowl series.

    "Still a great series."

    This is the first of Artemis Fowl books I've heard on audiobook, so I don't know the whole narrator dispute others are discussing. The book I downloaded here in August of 2010 was well read and enjoyable, so that's what I'm reviewing.

    This is a good continuation of a great series. It has all the originality of Harry Potter, and a lot more sophistication than Percy Jackson, and I'm surprised it hasn't gotten as much attention as either. It does not follow one central plot the way the Potter books do, but instead continually creates new stories within the world Colfer has created, so it doesn't leave you hanging at the end of each book. Still, start at the beginning if you are new to the series. If you are familiar with it, you will already have bought the book, and are probably only reading this to see how many people agree with you.

    There are, to me, a couple of negatives to "The Time Paradox." It does not build on previous situations as much as the other books have, and even leaves a couple of the questions from the end of the last book unaddressed. Also, it doesn't introduce major new characters or realities the way past books have, instead mostly relying on old characters. This makes it feel a little less dynamic than the previous books. It's like that episode in most serials where the characters go off on a side adventure instead of continuing on towards the central goal.

    It's still a very good book for Artemis fans, it just feels a little bit less complex and original than the rest of the series. It's a clean series, in case parents are wondering about it for their kids. No naughty stuff, no gore. Maybe a little complicated for a very young audience, but good for young teens, and older.

    Originally bought for my son, but I couldn't wait to read more with him. Smart, funny, plain hard to put down.

    "Entertaining Artemis, again."

    Enjoyed the narrator, the characters stay true and the basic story is interesting. It gets a little too "loopy" at the end when they try and straighten the final story out. Time travel books have a tendency to complicate a good story line. It was worth the listen.

    "disappointing end"

    the book was doing pretty well. it was secular from the over used characters and usual plots but then near the end it came all back around. honestly reusing the same secondary character this much is just nauseating. I feel like the series is a pokemon episode, each time team rocket shows up tries to do some stuff blasts off again and then returns next week.

    "One of the best!!!!"

    This was a heartfelt book with an awkward yet cut romance. The characters really developed and grew their friendship. The narrator was fantastic and the story was flawless!!!!!!

    "Minerva?"

    This book ignored the existence of Minerva Paradizio, established in its prequel. Otherwise enjoyable on its own merit.

    "An interesting story"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Time Paradox to be better than the print version?

    There is little difference since I listen to the unabridged versions. The benefit is the voices provided by Nathaniel. I don't have to provide them,


    What other book might you compare The Time Paradox to and why?

    It's a time travel book. It was a little confusing going back and forth.


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

    Nathaniel brings the voices of the characters. His voices help me keep track of who's speaking so I don't have to think about it. It. like listening to a movie. A good narrator is very important. Nathaniel does a good job.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The Present vs. the Past for the Future

    Story
    "Another great adventure for Artemis Fowl"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely recommend this book to anyone, and frequently do (as I work in a library). The action and adventure don't stop! Our favorite characters develop even more in this story, and we discover another side to Holly. Eoin Colfer's wry sense of humor prevents the ecological message from becoming preachy, and the villain is wonderfully off-kilter.


    What about Nathaniel Parker’s performance did you like?

    Nathanial Parker's wonderful grasp of the personality and accent of each character, even a minor one, exponentially enhanced my enjoyment of this book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Finding out a bit more about Captain Holly Short, and her relationship with her mother, really helped explain some of the reasons she became the tough little elf she did!
