I was kind of devastated at first.
The first chapter seemed to be mainly crude jokes.
Yeah, I agree about the Fanfiction party.
(Gary Stu, Gary Stu, Gary Stu! :P)

It felt like I was reading a pretty good fanfiction, not the real thing.
I like the magic part.
More time travel= more chances to steal magic?
Or is that out the window, since his body obviously can't adjust?

The illness seems like a bad plot device to me.
It's too... obscure. It's a dangerous disease that she has all of the symptoms to, found only in foreign and barbaric parts of the world! Oh noes!
I dunno...

Involved with a Skier? Is this a soap opera?

But still, I enjoyed a lot of it. I enjoyed Artemis Sr.'s part in it. Parts of it were decent.

I guess that we must trust Colfer.

Ugh, yeah. Let's hope we don't have another "The Final Warning" scale disaster here...
I'm sure we won't. I trust Colfer more than that.

I feel sure that Artemis will find a way to make his body adjust. I don't think he'd give up on magic that easily...
It's just like getting sore from doing a workout. His body isn't built to handle magic yet, so he has to tone it.
(Wow, weird sentence. I hope that made sense.)

That's kind of true. How the heck did she get it?

:lol: I can just imagine Minnie being involved with a skier. That's funny. But to me, it never seemed like she'd have much of a place in TTP.

I think I'll just hide in a corner chanting happy thoughts about Minerva. I don't expect her to be a main character or anything... just in the book.

Like I said in my last post, the end convinced me that Colfer was going to do all right. I can't wait until Tuesday!

Though seems everyone don't like the first chapter, I am satisfied, in fact, I like it :D
Artemis using his magic part is cool, and I like the idea that Arty will have headache when using magic and sick when enter dwelling uninvited, though he don't have these sickness now. I am really looking forward for the book!!! :jump:

I did like how he didn't perfectly get magic.
I agree Carino; he could just gradually get used to it.
I liked the idea of Minerva while reading the book.
I was just kind of annoyed by her character.
And though she annoys me, I would love to have her in there.
Because some awesome witty banter would happen.
As long as she was fleshed out.
Though, as always, I prefer A/H witty banter. XD

I honestly think this should be the last book... Partially because when a canonical book starts sounding like fanfiction, you know it's time to move away from that series. The other part is that I will end up buying any future books, but in three years I'll be almost 20, and will feel embarrassed buying an Artemis Fowl book for myself.

But maybe those three years will give Colfer a second wind, and he'll be able to write AF fresh again.

Hasn't anyone read it yet? I know I will have in a couple of days, because it just arrived this afternoon (they called me 1.5 hours ago that it was in, yay :D ), so I'm going to pick it up tomorrow, and most likely immediately finish it! I'm so happy :D

I'm going out to get it today. My parent's don't trust the internets with their credit card numbers or I'd have pre-ordered it.

I'm tapping my foot waiting for our bookstore to open... (looks at clock) Fifty-eight minutes to go. Maybe I can go find some paint somewhere and watch it dry. :?

Yay! I got it, I got it, I got it! And I finished it too. I'm so sorry, but I just have to do this. Don't read the spoiler if you haven't read TTP yet! Not even if you haven't read it completely yet, because I really read all of the book!

OMG! Holly and Artemis kissed! Freaking KISSED! I was sooooo squeeing when I read that. But now, they're still not together! Meeh! And we might never find out what will happen! I so need someone to threaten Eoin Colfer with me to write book 7! Even though I kinda think this book should be the last, I really want to know what happens next! And Minnie didn't return. Ah, too bad. I didn't really miss her. Foaly's married to Caballine! I told you, guys! Opal did return. A lot of you were against it, but I LOVED it. It was pretty good. But now, I am getting tired of her. Let someone please shoot her. And last but not least... Didn't we tell you all that it would be PA vs. FA? Well, not completely that, because in the end, they worked together, but it really was like that in the beginning. And no one died, not even Butler! Yay for that! A/H for life! I really want to write a fanfic about what happens next. As in what happens with Artemis and Holly. I'll write it when I'm on holiday, I promise!

Sorry. I just had to. No one in this house understands what I'm talking about, so I just had to do it on here. :D

With all due respect, that spoiler was way too big for you to have seen the whole thing by accident. But if you only saw a small part of it, then don't worry about it... I saw a bunch of spoilers around the internet before I read it, and it didn't ruin the book for me.

I read it too! Twice, in fact. Loved it.

Before TTP, I didn't expect A/H, but once I started the book, it became pretty obvious that A/H was going to happen.
I squee'd, too. Inside, of course, but I had to. And then afterwards I was babblying on to my mom and sister about how I was so happy that A/H became canon....
They didn't get it. Had to come on here.
Opal was pretty good, but some of it was a bit far-fetched. I was thinking, though, if there's going to be a book 7, then Opal's going to have to be in it. Because she has to somehow get sent back to her time. I don't suppose that means she'll get Jayjay, but they will have to find her and send her back. Otherwise, none of this would have happened. Does that make sense?
I'm glad Butler didn't die.
And or course Holly and Arty aren't together. That might be too fairy tale, even for Colfer. I prefer it that way, actually.

Are the mods going to move this topic to Artemis Fowl general on August 7th? Because that's when it's available to everyone.

I read it within 5 hours. I have to say that I thought that Holly and Artemis were a little OOC. Maybe it was just because Holly was in her younger body, but I WAS SO MAD THAT THEY ARE NOT TOGETHER IN THE END. Oh well, I have hopes that they will get together....Stupid Artemis had to ruin it....*growles*
