Now, what about Minerva and Artemis, could you be more alike? Bearing what Colfer said about Holly and Trouble in mind, do you think they will get together and then break up, not get together at all or will they live "happily ever after" all the same?

I agree! Trouble was one of my favorite charatcers too and I wish he''d been in the last book. He and Holly would make a great couple. As for Minvera, at the wrath of many fans I'm going to say that her part in the plot made me wonder if Colfer was struggling for ideas. To have one evil child genius is one thing, but to have another seems a bit... cliche? I'm not sure, I got the impression he was running out of ideas for this book. I expect in the next Fowl book (if there is one) Minerva and Artemis would be good friends and hint at something else, but it doesn't seem like Colfer to get all mushy and romantic in a Fowl book.

Er...yes, as you can see, I like Artemis Fowl.
I have all the first four. And in The Opal Deception (possibly my favourite) Root joined the select list of characters in books where I cried when they died. (or I thought they died (Gandalf))(along with Sirius Black, Theoden, and Liam from Song Of The Lioness,)

When I first got the first book I worked out what the bottom said before I read the book. I knew the book would give me the key inside so I worked it out from the chapter headings then read the book to see if I was right. I had 1 letter wrong and I think 3 missing .
The problem now is I don't have enough time to work it out. I must have started The Eternity Code at least ten times now then I have to go to work and I lose everything, plus i have to get up at 6am, to get out for 7am, to drive for two house to start work at 9am then finish at 6pm. I then drive another two house home by this time all i want to do is sleep. So i never get a chance to work out the codes anymore

Re: Artemis Fowl Thread

I absolutely love the Artemis Fowl series. I've only read no.1 and 4 but they are brilliant.

Re: Artemis Fowl Thread

YAY!
I bought number 5 last night! I didn't even know that it was out (they really have to work on their marketing skills...)!
It's called Artemis Fowl: The Lost Colony. It introduces demons as members of the fairy world, from what I understand. I managed to get to page ten before I fell asleep (I'd had a bit of a trying day), and I'm already loving it.
Did you guys know that it was out? And if so, how did you find out? I was just lucky enough to be walking by the books in Wal-Mart last night, or else I might never have known.

I heard it was coming but didn't know it was out until I saw this thread! I should be ashamed, especially considering my username is based on one of my favorite literary characters: Artemis Fowl II. I shall go to a bookstore after work and begin reading it tonight! I promise to use

Re: Artemis Fowl Thread

I haven't read it yet, but I'm pretty excited. My sister put it on hold, and so I'll just take it from her when she gets it.

Re: Artemis Fowl Thread

Well, I have now finished The Lost Colony, and I must say that I thought it to be an extraordinarily good read.
Spoiler: show
The fact that Artemis ends up with a little bit of magic himself in the end is really interesting, too. I wonder what he'll do with it. He's already proving himself to be a nice guy deep down.

All in all, I'd recommend it. Let me know what you guys think after you've had a chance to read, it!

Re: Artemis Fowl Thread

There is going to be a 6th book! I can't wait! I just finished the 5th book and I'm still in shock from it. I really thought that Holly . . . I won't say but I started to freaken out when I read that scene. I'm SO happy though that she is . . . my lips are sealed for all of those who didn't read the book yet. Anyway, the ending was a HUGE surprise for me and I'm dieing for the 6th book already because I want to know what happens to Artemis.

OH! What do you guys think about Minerva . . . when I saw her name it thought of Professor M. (No idea how you spell her name). I think she has got something for Artemis . . . do you think she is better than Holly?

Also, a LONG time ago, they said they were going to make an Artemis Fowl movie . . . what happened to that?

OH! Does anyone decode the messages on the bottom of the book? I want to but I don't have time. LOL! ^__^

There has to be a sixth book! Colfer leaves you wanting more. I hated getting to the end of the book and wondering what was going to happen next with Artemis.

I loved this book! It had great funny moments like the following.
Spoiler: show
Page 212"How did that go?" [Butler] asked. "Your first lengthy conversation with a girl your own age."
"Fabulous," said Artemis, his voice dripping with sarcasm. "We're planning a June wedding."


And, yes, that stuff with Holly had you on the edge of your seat.

And the...

I think I must go back and read the entire series yet again. I love Artemis Fowl.

Re: Artemis Fowl Thread

I have been a huge fan of Artemis Fowl since I read the first book. I was so excited when the fourth book came out! It's my favorite one so far. The fifth one was so good! I forget where, but I remember reading somewhere that there was going to be a sixth book, something about a hypnotist.

Arty is amazing! I love how witty and sarcastic he is, and that butler is his friend.

Re: Artemis Fowl Thread

I think the new one was by far the best yet. The ending was horrible just because it left you hanging...the only good thing is is that there has to be a 6th book.

Re: Artemis Fowl Thread

I love the Artemis Fowl series. Although, I've only read the first 2 books so far. I will have to read the others in the series soon. My favorite characters are Commander Root, and Butler. I always liked The Arctic Incident the best out of what I've read. I really hope they make a movie out of these books soon.

Re: Artemis Fowl Thread

i love ALL of the artemis fowl books! they are all so clever and funny, and i can't decide which one's my favorite. i think my favorite character is probably holly, or butler, or foaly. they're all so fun and butler and holly can kick some major butt.

Re: Artemis Fowl Thread

I had no idea there was a new book out until last week (Thank you Amazon Recommendations...)

I really do love these books, they're a lot of fun. The only problem I have with them is for some reason I can't seem to remember details about them. I've read books 1-4 twice and I can barley remember what each book was about, I just remember that I really enjoy them and that I thought the 3rd was the best. (I think...) I normally have a excellent memory so I'm surprised I don't remember much... except for maybe the first book.

I guess I'll have to re-read the series before I read book 5 then.
