    You do not own a copy of the rule book, and if you do, you have certainly never opened it.

    I liked this book more than the last one. But still this book has little problem which I faced.

    In this book, Artemis' mother gets ill by some serious disease. There is only one cure which is an extinct species. He asks Fairies for help. With the help of fairies, Artemis gets back in time to find that species. But he comes to know that, in past time, his younger self and Opal Koboi (antagonist), are also after this species.
    The whole book revolves around how he will get that species to present time through life threatening dangers.

    Main problem is:
    This thing didn't look good to me that, that species got extinct by Artemis himself when he was younger.
    This series always set Artemis for every bad deed. I liked that thing in previous books. But in this book, this thing seems little baseless to me.

    Never mind, I enjoyed it a lot!
    2 books are left!! Hope I will get the good conclusion!

    A very gripping tale... reading novels like these ensure that a parallel to the 'popular literature,' there is something called 'meaningful literature'. Cheers to the author!

    Artemis Fowl and the Time Paradox = The Time Paradox (Artemis Fowl, #6), Eoin Colfer
    Artemis Fowl: The Time Paradox is the sixth book in the series Artemis Fowl by Irish writer Eoin Colfer. It was released in the U.S. on 5 July 2008, and on 7 August in the U.K. At 432 pages, it is the longest book in the series. In Colfer's video blogs, he mentioned the book, saying it may not be the last, but the last one for at least three years. It is followed by Artemis Fowl: The Atlantis Complex.

    Angeline Fowl, Artemis Fowl's mother contracts a debilitating disease, which Artemis worsens by trying to use magic. Artemis desperately contacts Captain Holly Short and No. 1, in hopes that they will be able to shed some new light on his mother's condition. They determine Angeline is suffering from Spelltropy, a fairy disease that is spread through the use of magic, and can only be cured by the brain fluid of the silky sifaka lemur of Madagascar. Unfortunately, the lemur is extinct, due to a ruthless deal Artemis made almost 8 years ago with a group called the Extinctionists. Foaly tells him that his mother will die without the cure. Artemis pleads for No.1 to open up the time stream, allowing him to save the lemur, and thus his mother. Foaly argues against the idea, but due to Artemis' lying to Holly, saying that she infected Angeline with Spelltropy, Holly agrees to help Artemis immediately to make up for it, and Foaly had to give in. ...

    I LOVED this book! Eoin Colfer writes such great fun to read stories! I loved the ending of this book and the whole idea of the book too with the whole time traveling and Artemis meeting his past self and being outsmarted by his younger self. After reading this book, I definitely want to reread the first one again.

    Everyone must give Artemis Fowl a chance! It's a great series and one of my absolute favorites!

    When did these books get so bad? The plot was half-baked and meandering, and the dialogue was so awkward I could barely stand to read it. The writing is all just clichés and people trying to be cooler/smarter than someone else, with technology thrown in as a deus ex machina whenever it's needed. Is that what appeals to boys? I don't know. I hated the twins and Professor Primate and Holly being the biggest emotional wreck ever and THE KISS oh god don't get me started on the kiss. :|

    But most of all? I hated Artemis. WHY would you create an evil super-genius with no morals and then have a long character arc set over six books where he eventually becomes a model citizen? I liked him far more when he was inherently selfish, because then the occasional twinge of doubt or guilt he had were real Events. THAT was why the ending of the first book was so momentous. A nice person isn't interesting, no matter how clever they may be. (And yet I hated little!Artemis for being a whiny brat. I guess he was too emotional at that age.)

    Listened to on audiobook by Listening Library, narrated by Enn Reitel.
    Very disappointed that Nathaniel Parker did not narrate this latest installment in the Artemis Fowl series. I had grown so used to his characterizations and really enjoyed them. It was a bit like having all the actors change in the middle of the season on your favorite TV show. Not that Enn did a bad job, it just wasn't the same.
    This story seemed a bit draggy and convoluted. Artemis goes back in time to save a lemur that his earlier self had sold to an extinctionist society. He'd sold it in order to fund the rescue mission to Russia to save his father. Now he needs it back because his mother has contracted a fairy plague and fluid from the lemur's brain is the only thing that can save her. All the possible situations that can arise in time travel happen in this book and the going back and forth between the young and old Artemis becomes tiresome and confusing.
    I don't know if it was because of the new narrator or if the story really wasn't up to par, but this was not my favorite Artemis Fowl book.

    **Not too spoilery, there may be one or two things that aren't present in the official premise, but you discover them fairly quickly anyway.**

    I have truly grown fond of the Artemis Fowl series since I first read it as a child, which is probably the reason why I can go back and read the first four books in the series, despite the younger age demographic and slightly juvenile writing. The first four books were great fun to read because they had charm and they made enough sense for me to suspend reality and just enjoy it. *This* book, however, jumped the shark...enormously.

    First off, Colfer practically shoves his environmentalist views on the reader the entire time. Though this isn't exactly new to the series, and it's not always a terrible thing, subtlety is the key. This book is about as subtle as an oil tanker crashing into a field of baby seals. My God, the antagonist in this book is so one sided, so hilariously evil, that there is no facet of his personality or plan that the reader can even understand, never mind sympathize with. Colfer's one attempt at giving this eco-terrorist a motive, ambiguity, humanity...fails horribly. The fact that so much of the plot rests on this man's shoulders makes my heart ache.

    Let's move on to the second problem with this book, the one that the title implies: A Time Paradox. Time Paradox, indeed. In this book, Artemis and Holly must go back in time to change the past, because, as we all know, Artemis was kind of a douche when he was younger, and he made a ruthless deal with the...*shudder*...Extinctionists, whose goal is to make most animals in the world extinct. Why? Who knows? (It is actually explained in the book, and it has to do with some convoluted utilitarian philosophy that made me want to throw the book out the window in disbelief). So this deal happened and the one thing that could have saved his mother was extinguished from the world by his own doing. How poetic...and also dismally contrived. I mean, really, what are the chances? There's no magic or fate or anything, it's just by pure frickin' coincidence. Anyway...throughout the book, there are several interactions between the future Artemis and Holly and past characters. This is dangerous, dangerous territory. Some authors do this well, many do not, and one can guess by my tone that I don't think Colfer executed this trope very well...at all. When you retroactively add scenes into a universe, which is obviously what he did, it has to make sense; some detail from the earlier books should come into place that makes the reader go huh, I guess that's why that happened, or something like that, but NO. These isolated interactions are just there, they are never fully explained, the reader says to him or herself Wow, they should really be effing up the space-time continuum but...nope, guess not.

    I don't have much to say about the characters, except that some of them have strange traits that were never mentioned before in any of the five books before it, therefore adding nothing to the story and, actually, retracting from it by ruining the immersion. For example, Holly cricks her neck to the side to do magic. It's just a thing she does. Oh, really? Well, thanks for never mentioning it in any of the previous books. This may seem small but it is important. Always establish basic character traits off the bat. Major changes, even outright betrayal, etc. That's fair game for future books (as long as it makes sense in the context of the story). It's called character development. Little stuff like this, don't bother if you didn't establish it in the first place. It's irking, and it makes me feel like I don't really know the characters anymore. One thing I have to say about the book, though, is the baffling and unexpected romance that springs up. It's a bit weird, to say the least, but it piqued my interest, so there you go.

    This book...I can't say I had huge expectations after reading the last one (which I was also fairly disappointed in), but I did not anticipate such a heartbreakingly bad book. I don't know what happened, but I am seriously bummed out, because although I love these characters and grew up with them, I truly can't get past how badly I hate the writing in this book. Reading many of these reviews, most people seemed to like it, which I don't really understand but it's cool that other people are satisfied with it, I guess. I just wish I hadn't invested such a chunk of myself into this book series that turned into something that I despise. I guess I'll always have the first four, though, and that'll have to be enough.

    Not the strongest in the series to far, and yet... The beginning was a bit slow, or rather didn’t grab me as much, with some of the elements in the premise feeling too ‘engineered’. However, as the narrative progressed, the crazy adventure mode takes precedence and I couldn’t help enjoying it. Additionally, I love time travel stories and Colfer is definitely adept at juggling with this, even reaching a point where everything made actual sense LOL

    I love both time travel and Artemis Fowl, and this book had them in abundance. It had two Artemises (Artemisi?) because of the time travel, and to see them match up in a battle of wits was so entertaining. As much as I loved this series when I was a kid, I never got to this book, or at least I don’t think I did because I didn’t remember anything about it. But I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Artemis needs to go back to the past in order to find a cure for his dying mother. He enlists Holly Short to help, and the two of them go on an adventure to capture a lemur that Artemis himself killed years before. It’s a very interesting story, and I think my favorite thing is that one of their main enemies in the book is ten year old Artemis Fowl. By going up against himself, it shows how much he’s grown as a character from an evil mastermind to a complex but mostly good genius. I did really like Artemis as an anti-hero, but seeing him grow throughout the books as he ages made for a good story. However, I didn’t necessarily love the ending, but the rest of the story absolutely made up for that. This is such a good series, and even though it’s meant for a younger audience than me I can’t help but feel that it’s still entertaining after all these years.
