5.0 out of 5 stars Another great edition to the series! Aug. 5 2012
By Fantasy's Ink TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Cover:
Every time I look at this cover, I think that the illustration for Artemis Fowl really looks like Harry Potter.... Also Artemis and Holly were not wearing what is pictured per say but I see why they would have not pictured that. But overall I like the cover, as I love illustrations!

Writing:
(5/5) The writing was quirky and humorous (especially the dialogue) and never once treated the readers like idiots. The narrator had a strong presence in the book and the writing had its own unique style that stood out and brought life and character to the world (I'm basically saying the same thing about the writing as I did with previous books. I'm pretty lazy, but hey, Colfer's writing never loses its touch as the series progresses and is always superb).

Setting:
(5/5) As you have hopefully gotten from the summary, the book is set 8 years in the past. I loved seeing a lot of our characters from 8 years ago. As with all of Colfer's previous books, the setting of the Artemis Fowl series always seems fresh, as the author always uses something different so the book is never boring or tedious.

Plot:
(5/5) I loved how the plot went back and forth between the schemes of the current Artemis and the 10-year-old Artemis. It was like watching a ping pong game as it went back and forth with them undermining one another. It might sound confusing that there are two Artemis' but Colfer always makes it clear which one he means so there is never any confusion. All in all another fast paced, mind blowing, doozey of a plot from Colfer.

Main Character:
(5/5) When we have two Artemis', you can see firsthand what is the difference between the current one and the old one. Ten year old Artemis was ruthless, belittling and an overall brat.

4.0 out of 5 stars Artemis gets Kraken Aug. 3 2008
By Amanda Richards HALL OF FAME TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Those who have been faithfully following this series will know that this is book six of the adventures of the teenaged criminal mastermind, Artemis Fowl II.

Picking up at Fowl Manor, we learn that three years have passed while Artemis was otherwise occupied, and that he now has two brothers, twins named Beckett and Myles. This book goes in a different direction to the previous plot, making no mention of some of the characters introduced in The Lost Colony. There are references to certain events, but other than the main characters, most of the story is new material.

As the title implies, an older and more mature Artemis Fowl enlists the help of his friend Captain Holly Short, dwarf Mulch Diggums and the imp warlock No.1 to journey to the past to correct a mistake he made earlier in his eventful life. His mother has contracted a rare disease that can only be cured by an extract from the brain of an extinct lemur, and ironically, the extinction was hastened by young Fowl himself.

The time trip gets very complicated when Artemis matches wits with his younger self, and rescuing the lemur from Dr. Damon Kronski, leader of the Extinctionists cult, proves to be much easier planned than achieved. To make it more complicated, there's now a fledgling romantic situation in play, and the return of an enemy from the past who also wants possession of the lemur.

Artemis isn't as devious and diabolical as in earlier books, but to his credit, the kid is growing up and has other things on his mind. This book is action-packed with the usual gadgetry and humor, but as is the case with time paradoxes, it is sometimes hard to keep things straight. The plot also has several twists, obviously getting even twistier in the final chapters. The story ends with an obvious hint for another book.

And "What about the Kraken?" you may ask. Well, that part of the story is explosive, to say the least.
