when Holly died, I was really sad, but I knew that Artemis would save her. But when he just kept on counting, I was just like come on do something, you cant let Holly die!!!
And then he saved her because of the count on the bomb, and I was happy. Now when Root died, I almost cried the first time I read it. What was really wierd though was that the second time I read TOD, I actually DID cry when he died. But now every time there is any mention of Root, I am sad. :(

am i the only one who sort of hated artemis when holly died? i mean, yeah, when she died i was thrown for a loop, but i figured, hey, arty'll save her. and then he goes and is all cold shoulder to her dying body. It wasn't till he saved that i could like him again. It's horrible, i know, but that's how i felt! :shock:

It wouldn't have, though, if I actually believed Holly was dead... but when Artemis didn't show emotion, I knew he had a plan. What's time travel for if not resurrecting the dead?

I agree.
I mean, Artemis always has a plan. If he knew he couldn't think of a plan, I think he'd've (ouch, bad word...) been more emotionally affected.
He would've stopped, cause there was no way he could go home without Holly.

I was like this:

*stops reading and stares at word "died" after "Holly"*

Me: What the *censored*, Holly's my *censored* favorite character, and she *censored* died, that couldn't have *censored* happened, *a lot more of the censored words*

*panting from swearing so hard, is also crying*

*takes deep breath*

*turns page*

Me: OMG SHE *CENSORED* LIVED!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!


Mhmm..

I almost died when she died, especially when Artemis turned away from her. If I'd cry while reading books, I'd have cried then. And later, somewhere on the next page: "Holly died without a friend to hold her hand". :cry:

When Root died, I didn't really believe he was dead. I just kept hoping for an he-wasn't-dead-after-all kinda thing. Only when Foaly was replying the video and actually saw Root 'exploding', I had to admit that he was really dead :(

I sort of knew that Artemis would save her because it always says his first and last name whenever he does something spectacular. :)
Artemis Fowl glanced her way briefly, then returned his gaze to the bomb's timer, leaving Holly Short to die on the ground. Which she did.

Oooh, this is interesting. Over at the EC forum, we have a thread asking if you cried when Holly died. :)

Maybe I'm not good at reacting to books, but in all honesty, I didn't really do much (yeah, I'm heartless, I know :(). I was mainly 'um wow, okay' and continued reading because I really wanted to see what happened next.
