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.

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?

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.<br/>

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!

Running out of material

Where does The Time Paradox rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

All of the Artemis Fowl series have been performed amazingly, I just thin the author is running out of material.

He's back

Artemis is back, maturing but still Artemis. What splendid stories these are. The detail of James Bond, the charm and tight plotting of Harry Potter, the relentless action of the best spy thrillers. Characters I've grown to love, moving through exquisitely detailed worlds. Thank goodness the end is not in sight.
