New Artemis Fowl book out! - The lost colony.
« on: August 07, 2006, 02:12:56 am »
Okay, I was on vacation and I wondered into a bookstore in the local village. To my surprise their was mounted a rack of shiny books on which appeared a hulking red figure. The fifth artemis fowl book involving demons who are the worst kind of faires, they hate all humans but fortunatly are trapped in a realm in which they cannot escape. It also involves Artemis finding a child prodigy equal to himself who discovers the existence of faires. And strangley enough, Eoin Colfer threw some time travel into the mix. I have not read, just read the blurb of the book and did a little skim reading, I'm that cheap.

How is the Opal Deception? I've been thinking of going to get it, but I've been a little lazy lately, is it worth it?

The only Non-Artemis Fowl book I've read is The Wish List. Very cool.

I've read all of his books.

I recommend The Supernaturalists. In my eyes, it's better than good old Arty!  :o
The best person ever.  She should have won the Peace Prize.

What? No full control over children? You do realize that some of us have particular plans for those children.

I read it finally, pretty good, loved No.1, but Eoin kinda wore out the vocabulary thing.

I loved The Supernaturalists! Do you think he is making a sequel? The end of the book kind of led me to believe that.

I read The Lost Colony, good book.

Artemis becomes less and less like his old self, and there's a love interest.

Wait a minute, I've read the Supernaturalist too.

How the hell did I forget that?

Yeah, it was a pretty good book.
