Re: Artemis Fowl Thread

I just finished the fourth book! Fantastic as usual. Sadly, Juliet wasn't even mentioned in it.

Re: Artemis Fowl Thread

I love Artemis Fowl, Eoin Colfer is such a witty writer.

We were watching some DVD, I can't remember what, and there was what looked like a preview for Artemis Fowl. I nearly jumped out of my seat, I was so excited, but it turned out to just be a plug for the books. Grrrr, what a letdown!

One was in the works at one point, but the project has since been dropped. We can only hope that someone picks it up again.

Re: Artemis Fowl Thread

I love the Artemis Fowl books. I really really dislike Minerva, she's just there as a foil of Artemis. He use to be like that and now his new self can truely see how horrible he use to be, and I really, really hope that they stay far far apart from eachother. An elf/human relationship coudl work as long as htey don't have kids, because I'm not really sure how that would work. I love Holy, she's the strong girl character who can outsmart and out-run/anything to do with athletics anyone, and thats a good role model for everyone. The Lost Colony was a deent book, not my favourite. That was the first time I actually predicted Artemis' plan before hand. I can't wait until another book is published in this amazing series.

Re: Artemis Fowl Thread

first, I cant in a million years see holly and artemis. Second, I do like minerva, and she could change just like artemis. Last, are we certain there will be another book? I would love one, and there was some foreshadowing as to it, but still, after reading lost colony, it felt pretty final

Isn't she, like, a thousand years older than him or something? I think she has a more "older sister" relationship with him than romantic. She does, however, have a veeerry soft spot for Butler...

Eoin Colfer has confirmed that there will be one more book in the series.

The plot of the book is also unknown. However....

Spoiler: show
- Eoin Colfer has stated that Trouble Kelp will play a much larger role in book 6, in a romantic sense to Holly Short.
- Eoin Colfer has also stated that the two siblings of Artemis Fowl are both boys. The names he is currently leaning towards are Jonathon and Finian.
- Eoin Colfer has stated that the action will take place in Finland, and will involve a creature that has slept for millenia, more time travel, and irritating younger twin brothers.


In regards to the movie, Colfer said this year that

"I have been working intermittently on the screenplay for the past year with Jim Sheridan the Irish director. We have kept the heart of books one and two but I also wanted to do something cinematic and spectacular so we added a big exciting ending. No new characters but plenty of new one liners. I really love the story and we hope to go into production this Summer. No cast yet."

Re: Artemis Fowl Thread

I really hoped it would be Juliet with Artemis... strangely..whenever i think about Minerva... i think about Dr. Izzie stevens from Greys Anatomy.....weird. And when i think of Juliet.. i think of Uma Thurman in Kill Bill....weirder. And when i think of Artemis Fowl...i think of Daniel Radcliffe. Most of all, whenever i think of Butler. I think of the cartoon Cadbury from Richie Rich.

Interesting. I don't think of anyone like Daniel at all. Actually I can't think of a particular person as Artemis; he's just made from scratch in my mind.

I see where you get Uma Thurman for Juliet!

Re: Artemis Fowl Thread

I think the end of the 5th book was very very sad. I found it almost heartbreaking, the scene with
Spoiler: show
Butler waiting for (3 was it?) years for Arty to return.
It nearly brought me to tears. I think that the first 3 are the best. I didn't really like the 4th.
Spoiler: show
When Julius died,
I was so upset I could hardly finish the book!

But Artemis is a fantastic series, and he is one of my all time favourite literary characters! he makes me laugh so hard!

Re: Artemis Fowl Thread

Ladyblack23, I agree with you on all of your points, especially the ones under the spoiler tags. Some of my favorite characters!

Re: Artemis Fowl Thread

I just finished "The Lost Colony" last night. It's been sitting on my bookshelf waiting to be read since it came out but I just never got around to reading it.

I thought it was good, but definitely my least favorite of the series. I don't know why but I just didn't enjoy it as much as the others. 1 and 3 are my favorites and I have to say that Foaly is probably my favorite character. He's so funny! Closely followed by Artemis himself....

One thing I did really like about "The Lost Colony" was No1. I thought he was a sweet smart and funny character! I liked him a lot. I also like Artemis's new "gift" and I can see a great potential using that in the next book!!

Re: Artemis Fowl Thread

I can see how Holy and Artemis coud be taken as a platonicly simbling love, but I can still hope. Minerva....I think she will change but I'm hoping that doesn't mean that Artemis falls in love with her, because I think I would puke all over the book. I picture Artemis kind of similar (not too much) to the kid who played the brother in The Series of Unfortunate events. I don't know, I have a friend that I call Artemis because he's a computer wiz and super smart, really skinny and not too athletic. =], my teacher was crackin up because he is like him.

I want there to be a movie, but I doubt it will be anywhere near how good it should be. Unless they get a group of devoted fans to cast and write the screenplay, it won't be as good as it should.

Re: Artemis Fowl Thread

*Gasp* I'm so happy I found this topic! I didn't know the 5th book came out already, I've been waiting on it since I read the series last summer. It's almost as good as the Harry Potter series! (almost)

Re: Artemis Fowl Thread

I loved this series!! My favorite character is Foaly, but I bawled in The Opal Deception when Root was killed cuz he was great I also like Mulch. My favorite parts are when Juliet took out Loafers and Mulch said " Hey, Butler. Just a shot in the dark here but I'd say that's your sister" and also when Mulch is driving Loafers nuts. My favorite one was the Opal Deception, i don't know why but i also particularly like The Arctic Incident. The Lost Colony was really good but very unexpected and kind of strange, like the part where Holly dies and then comes back to life. All in all it is an excellent series and I have my copies of the books on my special shelf with my HP books, O.S. Card books, Calvin and Hobbes books, and My Redwall Books so you know i liked them a lot.

Re: Artemis Fowl Thread

I like the first three the best.
I found the Opal Decption annoying because Artemis sort of had to turn good again, when he already had in the previous books.
The Lost Colony had too much of No1 and not enough of Artemis and Holly.
That's not to say I didn't like them, though.
I hope that the last one will be better that the fourth and the fifth.
As for the film, I just want to say that they'd better get a good actor for Artemis.
It would be cool if all of the actors were Irish.
