Artemis Fowl: The Atlantis Complex - SPOILERS
« on: August 31, 2010, 10:34:43 AM »

What did you think?
I thought the story was amusing, but I didn't see the Colfer style I've some to know and love. Maybe he's changed, or maybe... *choke* he has a ghost writer.
What did you guys think? Is the style different? DId anyone read this?

I've read it. A bit of a disappointment. Of course I was glad to read it... and I'm looking forward to more... but like you said, Deca, it just wasn't that Colfer style that we all know and love. Artemis going mad, especially like that = a recipe for disaster. C'mon, we all like the evil genius! Why'd Colfer change him so much?

Butler was a bit of a disappointment, too. All the original bad guys are going soft.  :'(

It's not that bad. I really liked The Time Paradox, though, so nothing really compares, although the first one's by far the best. I liked the Artemis/Holly couple...  :P

Um... I felt like the book was written longer then split in half. Lots of elements he promised to include weren't in there. It seemed colder esque, but rushed, like the deadline crept up on him. It also seemed like he added in new elements after the first draft was complete and didn't go over it again to smooth it out.

However, I liked the plot well enough, and feel I might forgive him for this one if the next one makes it all fall into place, I'm pretty sure he said the next one was his last? I'll miss orion when he is gone, but I love the old guiltless genius arty. Andx yeah, I kinda like the holly/Artemis couple, but where the heck did minervra go? CCant wait for the next one though....

Yeah, what did happen to Minerva? I liked that that was the first time he actually talk to a girl with giving her a science lecture.
But I really do like the Artemis/Holly couple. Plus the Artemis going mad thing was cool, then him going to rehab..... yeah, pretty cool.
