Will there be an end to Artemis Fowl?

According to Colfer himself, there will be. In the centre of the hype caused by the seventh book Colfer has anounced that book 8 is to be the last in the series.

[This topic is for discussing possible reasons why, or if it may just be a phase that Colfer is going through. Speculation about the 8th book are not to be posted in this topic. Keep moping to a minimum]

Well we expected it didn't we? I mean he couldn't just keep writing the book (or could he?) When he said it will end with a little Epilogue. End of story. It seemed rather I dunno harsh (but this is just me talking) I'm hoping this is just a phase but I read in his site that he will always leave some kind of opening? (I forgot his exact words -.-) If in the fiuture he wanted to continue the series.

I hope 8 is the last one. You can only get so much good out of a series.

Two things, though:

1. Colfer has way too much fun writing these characters. He's going to keep writing books as long as they're profitable, probably.

2. Colfer also said that after TTP, he wouldn't start another AF book for at least three years. Two years later, the next book came out. Which means he started writing a year after TTP came out. He isn't always telling the truth. Remember how the Release Date of the movie has been EVERY YEAR since the first book came out? That movie will come out in time for me to take my kids to see it in theaters, I'm sure.

Hm, I don't know. This may just be my hoping, but I am pretty sure he will continue. Every time he's said something, he totally goes backward and does something else! Example: What P5YCHIC mentioned. :D

I think that it's always OK to end a series. If you keep continuing it, the readers will eventually get bored. Take Warriors for example. Erin Hunter is continuing that series, and there's over 20 books in the series alone!
I think that maybe Eoin Colfer could maybe make a guide book, like Kathryn Lasky for The Guardians of Ga'Hoole.
I'm sad, but I'm also sort of happy. It's always good to wonder if there's a happy ending. Or not... :twisted:

Yeah, it is good idea to end the series eventually. One thing though: Doesn't the Artemis Fowl Files count as a "guide book"?

Yeah, when a series drags on, even the most devoted readers lose a bit of interest. Like, I completely love the Animorphs series--we're getting the entire series on E-Bay and Amazon! But the series consists of exactly 65 books at 150 pages each, including bigger special books. I know of only one library that could possibly own a copy of every book--the Library of Congress! As soon as I read all of the books I could find, including the last book, out of sequence, I put my interest into a new series. Now we're finally trying to get the whole collection, three or four years later--and you know what? The last two books are full of the deaths of loved ones, depression, marriage proposals being refused, and two people who were meant to be together drifting apart--and there's no final ending!

Anyway, what I'm saying is, things that go on too long tend to lose their touch and have bad endings. If Eoin Colfer thinks that one more book is best, then I think so, too. We've had so many great Artemis Fowl moments that we can relive. We have fanfiction, and we have each other. And, like said above, he might open the series again or write a parallel series in a few years. Or maybe he'll re-think ending it here. Then there's still the graphic novels for the other books and perhaps a movie sometime in the distant future!

So, what I'm really saying here is this: I will miss Artemis Fowl so much if this is the end. In some ways, the series never ending, or at least going on longer, is great. Then again, I really do want to see Artemis in a happy ending. With Holly, of course. :D So, I guess I'm kind of split on this issue. Wow, that was a long response! :P
