    You do not own a copy of the rule book, and if you do, you have certainly never opened it I liked this book than the last one But still this book has little problem which I faced.In this book, Artemis mother gets ill by some serious disease There is only one cure which is an extinct species He asks Fairies for help With the help of fairies, Artemis gets back in time to find that species But he comes to know that, in past time, his younger self and Opal Koboi antagonist , are also after this species The whole book revolves around how he will get that species to present time through life threatening dangers Main problem is This thing didn t look good to me that, that species got extinct by Artemis himself when he was younger This series always set Artemis for every bad deed I liked that thing in previous books But in this book, this thing seems little baseless to me Never mind, I enjoyed it a lot 2 books are left Hope I will get the good conclusion _

    I LOVED this book Eoin Colfer writes such great fun to read stories I loved the ending of this book and the whole idea of the book too with the whole time traveling and Artemis meeting his past self and being outsmarted by his younger self After reading this book, I definitely want to reread the first one again.Everyone must give Artemis Fowl a chance It s a great series and one of my absolute favorites

    Listened to on audiobook by Listening Library, narrated by Enn Reitel.Very disappointed that Nathaniel Parker did not narrate this latest installment in the Artemis Fowl series I had grown so used to his characterizations and really enjoyed them It was a bit like having all the actors change in the middle of the season on your favorite TV show Not that Enn did a bad job, it just wasn t the same.This story seemed a bit draggy and convoluted Artemis goes back in time to save a lemur that his earlier self had sold to an extinctionist society He d sold it in order to fund the rescue mission to Russia to save his father Now he needs it back because his mother has contracted a fairy plague and fluid from the lemur s brain is the only thing that can save her All the possible situations that can arise in time travel happen in this book and the going back and forth between the young and old Artemis becomes tiresome and confusing I don t know if it was because of the new narrator or if the story really wasn t up to par, but this was not my favorite Artemis Fowl book.

    When did these books get so bad The plot was half baked and meandering, and the dialogue was so awkward I could barely stand to read it The writing is all just clich s and people trying to be cooler smarter than someone else, with technology thrown in as a deus ex machina whenever it s needed Is that what appeals to boys I don t know I hated the twins and Professor Primate and Holly being the biggest emotional wreck ever and THE KISS oh god don t get me started on the kiss But most of all I hated Artemis WHY would you create an evil super genius with no morals and then have a long character arc set over six books where he eventually becomes a model citizen I liked him far when he was inherently selfish, because then the occasional twinge of doubt or guilt he had were real Events THAT was why the ending of the first book was so momentous A nice person isn t interesting, no matter how clever they may be And yet I hated little Artemis for being a whiny brat I guess he was too emotional at that age.

    Not too spoilery, there may be one or two things that aren t present in the official premise, but you discover them fairly quickly anyway I have truly grown fond of the Artemis Fowl series since I first read it as a child, which is probably the reason why I can go back and read the first four books in the series, despite the younger age demographic and slightly juvenile writing The first four books were great fun to read because they had charm and they made enough sense for me to suspend reality and just enjoy it This book, however, jumped the sharkenormously First off, Colfer practically shoves his environmentalist views on the reader the entire time Though this isn t exactly new to the series, and it s not always a terrible thing, subtlety is the key This book is about as subtle as an oil tanker crashing into a field of baby seals My God, the antagonist in this book is so one sided, so hilariously evil, that there is no facet of his personality or plan that the reader can even understand, never mind sympathize with Colfer s one attempt at giving this eco terrorist a motive, ambiguity, humanityfails horribly The fact that so much of the plot rests on this man s shoulders makes my heart ache.Let s move on to the second problem with this book, the one that the title implies A Time Paradox Time Paradox, indeed In this book, Artemis and Holly must go back in time to change the past, because, as we all know, Artemis was kind of a douche when he was younger, and he made a ruthless deal with the shudder Extinctionists, whose goal is to make most animals in the world extinct Why Who knows It is actually explained in the book, and it has to do with some convoluted utilitarian philosophy that made me want to throw the book out the window in disbelief So this deal happened and the one thing that could have saved his mother was extinguished from the world by his own doing How poeticand also dismally contrived I mean, really, what are the chances There s no magic or fate or anything, it s just by pure frickin coincidence Anywaythroughout the book, there are several interactions between the future Artemis and Holly and past characters This is dangerous, dangerous territory Some authors do this well, many do not, and one can guess by my tone that I don t think Colfer executed this trope very wellat all When you retroactively add scenes into a universe, which is obviously what he did, it has to make sense some detail from the earlier books should come into place that makes the reader go huh, I guess that s why that happened , or something like that, but NO These isolated interactions are just there, they are never fully explained, the reader says to him or herself Wow, they should really be effing up the space time continuum butnope, guess not.I don t have much to say about the characters, except that some of them have strange traits that were never mentioned before in any of the five books before it, therefore adding nothing to the story and, actually, retracting from it by ruining the immersion For example, Holly cricks her neck to the side to do magic It s just a thing she does Oh, really Well, thanks for never mentioning it in any of the previous books This may seem small but it is important Always establish basic character traits off the bat Major changes, even outright betrayal, etc That s fair game for future books as long as it makes sense in the context of the story It s called character development Little stuff like this, don t bother if you didn t establish it in the first place It s irking, and it makes me feel like I don t really know the characters any One thing I have to say about the book, though, is the baffling and unexpected romance that springs up It s a bit weird, to say the least, but it piqued my interest, so there you go.This bookI can t say I had huge expectations after reading the last one which I was also fairly disappointed in , but I did not anticipate such a heartbreakingly bad book I don t know what happened, but I am seriously bummed out, because although I love these characters and grew up with them, I truly can t get past how badly I hate the writing in this book Reading many of these reviews, most people seemed to like it, which I don t really understand but it s cool that other people are satisfied with it, I guess I just wish I hadn t invested such a chunk of myself into this book series that turned into something that I despise I guess I ll always have the first four, though, and that ll have to be enough.

    I love both time travel and Artemis Fowl, and this book had them in abundance It had two Artemises Artemisi because of the time travel, and to see them match up in a battle of wits was so entertaining As much as I loved this series when I was a kid, I never got to this book, or at least I don t think I did because I didn t remember anything about it But I thoroughly enjoyed it Artemis needs to go back to the past in order to find a cure for his dying mother He enlists Holly Short to help, and the two of them go on an adventure to capture a lemur that Artemis himself killed years before It s a very interesting story, and I think my favorite thing is that one of their main enemies in the book is ten year old Artemis Fowl By going up against himself, it shows how much he s grown as a character from an evil mastermind to a complex but mostly good genius I did really like Artemis as an anti hero, but seeing him grow throughout the books as he ages made for a good story However, I didn t necessarily love the ending, but the rest of the story absolutely made up for that This is such a good series, and even though it s meant for a younger audience than me I can t help but feel that it s still entertaining after all these years.

    Ah, yes, the trusty time paradox If I go back in time and kill my grandfather, then shall I cease to exist I believe, as Gorben and Berndt did, that any repercussions are already being felt We can only change the future, not the past or present If I go back, then I have already been back Artemis s mother is sick and the only option how to save her is to travel in time and save a lemur, who only can cure her But before he has to prevent his younger self, who s helping with extermination this species If I wouldn t read the last 70 pages or so than would be this book my favorite one But Unfortunately I have read them I loved the idea with the whole time traveling and duel between past Artemis and present Artemis but the end was really bad Don t get me wrong, I really love this series and I can even say it s one of my favorite ones but The Time Paradox contains few flaws I couldn t get over the basic rule of time traveling is don t interact with anybody from the past or it will affect the present day what happend with it Holly and Artemis interacted almost with everyone with no effect on the future narration from past and present Artemis was sometimes really confusing It took me few sentences before I knew whose POV I was reading the solution was just weird I think that Eoin himself was confused with the story and didn t know how to solve the whole situation so he threw new technologies and confusing Artemis s explanations whenever he needed That all was too smart even for Artemis and I m not completely sure if I got the solution right But I still liked the book If you don t focus on every word, it s pleasant and funny read, just next time make it simple and don t get confused yourself and us, Eoin I am highly curious if there will be something between Holly and Artemis I really recommend to peek inside Artemis s world to everyone.
