Artemis Fowl and the Time Paradox by Eoin Colfer

In this eventful story that Eoin Colfer has produced, Artemis Fowl now has two-year old twins as  brothers. As well as that, Artemis’ mother is gravely ill. Artemis is desperate for the cure, a lemur killed… by a younger Artemis Fowl. And so ensues an adventure of travelling back in time, where Artemis meets his worst enemy yet, Opal Koboi…

The subject that gripped me the most in the beginning of this book was that Artemis had two-year old brothers. This was because Artemis is an ingenious criminal, not the kind to be finger painting with younger brothers. When the twins (Bennett and Myles) went out of the story, the grip of the book died down a bit too much. I kept  on reading, though, and the ending was quite a shock. One escape that Artemis had was out of holographic flames. It struck me that the holographic part made the danger level low, and as Artemis is  ingenious, when his in trouble, his danger level should be high. This is because when you are in danger you often can’t think of ways of escape as you are too focused on your situation, and an ingenious person should face a challenge that when completed, will get them out of jeopardy. The fact that when Artemis met his younger self was not confusing is creditable, as in Bridge of Time (you can read my review on that book) when the children meet their older selves, when they talk to each other it gets quite confusing. Artemis Fowl and the Time Paradox is not one of my favourite books, but it does contain some enjoyable reading.
