Artemis only grow two years in five book?

Post by LEP » Wed 11th Jul 2007

In AF, Arty is 12 years old,am I right.
In TLC, he said he is 14("almost 18"),although the time of Bulter wasn't that slow(sad about Bulter).

Artmeis grow too slow!!!!! But I like it,I don't want him to be bigger(older),that can't show he is intelligent.

I don't think he grows too slowly. I mean, I'd hate it if I opened up a book and found that five or six years had passed without me knowing what had happened. Especially since that would make Artemis too old to keep the 'he's just a kid' thing in play. I think the books are perfectly spaced, actually. It isn't quite one adventure right after the other, but Colfer doesn't wait too long either.

I think he grows too slowly. I outgrew him very quickly, and I'm not comfortible with that :lol: . But I guess that in a book where everything happens within a few days the time passing between each book can't be too big.

u cant make him grow to quickly - if it was a year per book he would be 17!!(legally 21!!!) it will completely destroy his character - a juvenile criminal mastermind, he wont be special if hes an adult already!!!!

and do you notice that Butler is older then Juliet almost 17 years!!!!!!!!!

In TEC,
Butler grow "almost 15 years" faster,
and he was "at least 50, or more",
so, he was about 35 then.

And Juliet said she can't get the blue diamond tattoo at the year same as Butler, 18
so she would be 18

so, Butler is 35(about) and Juliet is 18
Butler is older then Juliet almost 17 years!!!!!!!!! :D

Yes, I am back! I have been super-dee-dooper busy. I just got back from vacation and I said to myself, "As soon as I get back, I am going to start posting on FG again. I miss those guys!" And I did miss you! I loved talking about AF with people who actually care! I might not be posting a lot in the next few days because there's still alot to do around our house, but I swear posts will start rushing in soon." Love you all!!!!

On topic, please, and no spam... it seems like I've been saying this way too often lately. I'm sorry, guys, but this board really isn't the place for this- you could PM each other, instead.

Anyway, I agree with what veelagirl said before:

a juvenile criminal mastermind, he wont be special if hes an adult already!!!!

Well, he'd still be special, being Artemis, but not in the same way.
