Artemis Fowl: the Lost Colony

Written by TV-MagicWriter on November 11th, 2008

  • Book Rating: 5/5

Artemis Fowl and Holy Short are off on another faerie adventure -- a different take on magic, myth and legend. Truly the adventure of a life time for every kid, possibly those adults who will never completely grow up. Everyone should take the time to enjoy this series. Delightful and intoxicating, you'll have to have MORE.

This is probably my least favorite of the five, but still entertaining! There was definitely the standard creativity and fun adventures, but overall it dragged a bit in a couple of places. As a fan of the series, I forgive this one slight misstep and am just looking forward to #6!

I enjoyed all of the Artemis Fowl novels and this was no exception. But I keep hoping that Butler will find a nice super spy to settle down with and have a few kids of his own. Afterall who will be the body guards for the twins.

another brilliant one

Eoin Colfer did it again, another brilliant story in this series. It reads very fast and has a great storyline. My 12 year old enjoyed it as much as I did, although I listened to it while he read it himself using an old fashioned book.

Author Details

Colfer, Eoin

Eoin Colfer (pronounced Owen) was born in Wexford on the South-East coast of Ireland in 1965, where he and his four brothers were brought up by his father (an elementary school teacher, historian and artist of note) and mother (a drama teacher). He first developed an interest in writing in primary (elementary) school with gripping Viking stories inspired by history he was learning in school at the time!

After leaving school he got his degree from Dublin university and qualified as a primary school teacher, returning to work in Wexford. He married in 1991 and he and his wife spent about 4 years between 1992 and 1996 working in Saudi Arabia, Tunisia and Italy. His first book, Benny and Omar, was published in 1998, based on his experiences in Tunisia; it has since been translated into many languages. A sequel followed in 1999, followed by some other books (see below). Then in 2001 the first Artemis Fowl book was published and he was able to resign from teaching and concentrate fully on writing.

He says, "I will keep writing until people stop reading or I run out of ideas. Hopefully neither of these will happen anytime soon."

He lives in Ireland with his wife and two children.
