Earlier this month, I read one of my most- and least-anticipated books of the year. Artemis Fowl and The Last Guardian. Most anticipated, because Artemis Fowl is my favorite series ever. The books are hysterical, poignant, suspenseful, engaging, and just enjoyable to read. My deepest regret is to say that it was not, in fact, a slam dunk for this series.
The general fan response has been favorable, but I was a bit disappointed. The book is a notable departure from the rest of the series. The characters are mostly spot on, as usual. And it doesn't fail to make you laugh! Eoin Colfer is still the funniest and best writer although perhaps not plotter ever! The narration is amazing as usual. The main thing I disliked same problem with the book before, Atlantis Complex was lack of plot complexity.
They went a little far with Artemis's redemptive spirit..

It's great that he's redeemed and all, but if you're like me, you kind of miss the days when he was just a deliciously-awesome ruthless evil genius. They aren't really vital to the plot, but they do make you wince a bit. My favorite part of these books was always the part when Artemis's "ace in the hole" big plan climax, was revealed. This book had one, but it wasn't as climactic as it could have been. If you've read this book, you'll know what I'm talking about.

The-the ending.. Not really that "ahh, wipe away a tear" feeling I like at the end of books I was convinced that someone had kidnapped Eoin Colfer and wrote the ending under his name, not to mention upset that the amazingly beautiful series that was Artemis Fowl had to endure that kind of ending. I read it several times over and I guess I sort of warmed up to it It is predictable, I guess Of course Artemis Fowl was gonna end in a way that wasn't the usual book ending, but So how did it rank on my series ending scoresheet?
The end of the book was really It certainly broke from tradition. As for "Artemis's biggest challenge yet", my frustration is that we never really got the chance to find out whether this Opal alright, you know it's Opal if you've read the back cover is Artemis's biggest intellectual match, or if she's just sheer numbers and luck.
We only get a couple limited scenes with Opal's power, and no scenes with Opal's intellect versus Artemis's, unlike say, the Temple of Artemis scenes in The Opal Deception. If I had to pick Artemis's greatest challenge, I guess it would have to technically be this one. If someone explained his situation to you, you would agree that he was pretty screwed. The book has a desperate feeling to it, which was nice although a bit depressing.
It didn't seem as urgent and I didn't read as hurriedly as I read the other books, although it is properly suspenseful and driven as a series as high-quality as AF should be. Artemis's plot and the subsequent reveal felt supremely rushed. Besides the fact that I was disappointed with the deaths in the novel, how they were resolved, and the emotion they left behind. I wish there were more closure.
I can't say anything about the ending without spoiling it for you. Nevertheless, most fans that have read it, I believe, either find it horrible or find it perfect. One thing I really loved was that for each character, there were very short passages sprinkled throughout the book providing a perspective on them over the whole series. It's like each character is sort of closed off individually throughout the book, and the result is very unique and touching. Nothing could make me love the series any less or tarnish that brilliance.
The series is still a head above any other series in the field, but it wasn't quite the explosive ending we fans had hoped for. Diana August 28, at AM. Anonymous March 19, at AM.
