First of all, Artemis loses his magic practically before the book even starts! How annoying is that? And he fingerpaints! Yeah, he's changed, but I think that's a bit much. And I still can't picture him in anything besides a suit. And AF senior was sort of weird...
The excerpt on the UK site was much more satisfying- albeit shorter. Foaly seemed oddly OOC, but everything else was cool. You can see how No1's matured a bit, too. And I liked how there was humor in it even though it was an important passage... although the whole bit about going without clothing seems unneeded and sort of forced, if that makes sense.
Yeah, I was disappointed, too. It was slightly funny, but fingerpainting?
I mean, I suppose Arty will have to change a bit around the twins, but he could watch
Geez, I have never fingerpainted.
I am really hoping that Artemis will find a way to get more magic, though. I mean, if he's traveling in a time tunnel with Holly, he'll probably pick up some more there. I liked the idea of a magical Arty.
And I think Foaly seemed OOC even in TLC. He's so different than he was before. I didn't like it.
And yes, the without clothing. It's obvious that there's something else attached to that. At first when I read it, I was thinking A/H! But now...I don't.
If Colfer was going to do A/H, he wouldn't do it in such a way. I just want to know why that bit is in there.
