the Opal Deception
Friday, October 7, 2005

Eoin Colfer writes exciting books with intricate plots, clever characters and a free wheeling love of futuristic science and mythical creatures. The Artemis Fowl series explores the convoluted doings of elf Holly Short, centaur Foaly, dwarf Mulch Diggums, evil boy genius Artemis Fowl, his bodyguard Butler. Don't be taken in by the punny names; the books may be written for young adults but I like them too. That said, this fourth book lacks much of the freshness of the previous three. It's hard not to start to get derivative when you have to repeat yourself and I'm hoping that Colfer moves back to some of his other ideas like the Supernaturalist.
