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!!!!

AF is such the best! I had to force my friend to read the first Arty book and then she turned on me and said it was boring! I don't understand how so many people can't like Artemis Fowl it's my FAVORITE series ever! :?

heehee, Meova.
I know, all of my really close friends are Fowl-haters. So I amuse myself by inserting Arty-humor into their lives and watching them laugh at it.
Like at a sleepover, someone said something really stupid and I told them to go get a brain extension. ;) They all laughed at it hard.
And then today at lunch, we were talking about making our own lunches and Jazzy said she couldn't make sandwiches in 2nd grade. I replied with, "What, is it harder than it looks?"
But it's just hard to keep a straight face when I do those things.

Most people don't even bother to read it and they say it's boring.I know just a few people apart from FG that like Artemis Fowl.Books are really great how can someone say they're boring.And most of people don't even won't to read them because they are HP addict.But I think there is more people that like AF then the ones who hate it.And if the movie turns to be great even more people will like it.I think it's not good for people to read books after they saw the movie but most people watch movies then they read so probably a whole bunch of them would be interested in AF.

A movie would help make the books more popular, but Colfer said the movie would have a different ending so it would be better if you new the original ending before seeing the movie version.

Yeah, but hopefully people can get past that. I think if they're that far, they should be into it enough to y'know, keep going...even if the book is different.

I hope the movie does give people more open minds about the Artemis Fowl books. Then more people will join the forum! This kid at my school just started reading AF and he is one the only kids at my school that I know who actually likes it! :lol:

My sister called Arty a nerd! And said the books were boring.
I concluded that her comprehension sucks. Honestly!

It really makes me feel sorry for people when they don't know who Artemis Fowl is. At my school I checked out an AF book and told my best friend he should read and he said it would take about a month for him to finish it... And it was the first one!
