Summary: Artemis Fowl gets news of his father’s status. He’s alive and being held for ransom. Down in the Lower Elements havoc is ensuing as Captain Holly Short unexpectedly uncovers a goblin gang with outdated weapons modified with human technology. It is assumed that a human is helping them and the only human who knows of the fairy people is Artemis Fowl…

Why I Started This Book:

I grabbed this book because I enjoyed the first book in the Artemis Fowl series! And I equally enjoyed book two. Colfer and Parker continue to be a great pair.

Likes:

  • Parker’s Russian voices. How on earth did he manage to make them sound different and share the same accent? Wow! This guy is very talented.
  • Basically everything Foaly says but especially his retorts!
  • Mulch Diggums return and Root’s subsequence purpling of face.
  • That in this book it’s a couple of bad fairies causing mayhem, not Artemis Fowl, though he’s certainly accused!

Dislikes:

  • How insane both bad fairies were. One was a giggle-queen and weirdly childlike. The other was on a revenge streak and fairly stupid for how smart he was to get the ‘revolution’ going.
  • Holly’s detached and reattached finger… very icky.

I’m enjoying the audio books. I read one of the books and I find I particularly like this reader’s rendition, better than reading it myself, though it takes a lot longer.

On another subject, I was very disappointed in the Jim Butcher Dresden Files reader. I couldn’t listen. Too bad!
