It is 6 CD’s. It is 7 hours 38 minutes long. This fiction is unrealistic; I find this author difficult to listen to. An army of fairy space probes have returned to Earth reprogrammed to destroy Atlantis and only Artemis Fowl can stop them. As he races to save the subaquatic city, he must also combat an onslaught of obsessive compulsive and delusional disorders, both by products of prodigious intellect and immense stress.
I really enjoyed reading this series. I would give this audiobook 5 stars, except the reader wasn't quite right. He read with a different tone and accent than I had in my head when I read the books and it just wasn't as good. I recommend reading the books if you can, not the audiobooks, but the audiobooks weren't terrible. Just not as good as the hardbacks/ebooks.
I liked this fiction CD. It is unrealistic; but, I enjoyed it anyway. It is too violent for children to listen to. It involves fairies, trolls and other mythical magical creatures. The main character is a emotionally spoiled undisciplined 12 year old human boy. I do not like his character or his actions. Someone needs to say No to him. He needs a good spanking. Nathaniel Parker ably creates voices for characters belonging to a wide range of species-human, fairy, troll, and more-in this first adventure of 12-year-old Irish millionaire supervillain Artemis Fowl, who here sets out to kidnap a fairy.
This is a great book series! Great play on a techy fairy world! The novels are great and the person who narrates the series does a wonderful job!
You can also get graphic novels.
A fun book for youngsters of any age. I'm 71, for instance, and enjoyed it a great deal.
Alluring, is the perfect word to describe Artemis Fowl. The vulnerable characters and realistic relationships are easy to relate to and sympathize with. The descriptive scenery creates an exquisite mental image. Along with the twists of the plot, Artemis Fowl is quite an enjoyable book. This book stimulated every crack and crevice in my imagination. Eoin Colfer has such a different take on old myths and legends, it’s refreshing. I have never read a book quite like Artemis Fowl. I would recommend this book to those who seek adventure. No matter what age, adventure will lure anyone who craves it.
This is the better than Harry Potter and the Hunger Games Combined! only a true writer can create a masterpeice like this!
Loved it! Strange, funny and kept you engaged the whole time. Artemis Fowl is full of sinister and unpredictable shenanigans.
