Artemis Fowl: The Atlantis Complex (audio) by Eoin Colfer
While I'm a big fan of this series, I was a little less keen on this book. Artemis is acting different with his Atlantis Complex and I really just wanted the old boy genius back. I guess it's good to explore different sides of him, but I like devious Artemis Fowl the best. But still this was a nice addition to the Artemis Fowl story. It was fun and went at a nice pace. It's always great to see the gang together and Colfer invents creative ways to get everyone in the same boat so to speak. Though it's a bit more little literal in this book since they do, in fact, end up in the same actual boat, trying to figure out how the villain's plan worked.
This is the penultimate book in the Artemis Fowl series and I have no idea what the last book will be about. Opal, maybe. She is briefly mentioned in this book. There is no overarching plot that I can remember so I wonder how the series will wrap up.
8 hours, 10 minutes
Nathaniel Parker has narrated all the Artemis Fowl books and I really love the way he does it. He has a nice voice and has perfected the various voices he uses for all the characters. Often the way he reads gives me a bit of a Hitchhikers vibe, but maybe that is because Colfer wrote the last book in that series and I have that on my mind. Anyway, the audio books are a really fun way to enjoy this series.
