Book Review: Artemis Fowl and the Atlantis Complex (Book 89 of 100)

This is the seventh book in the Artemis Fowl series I'm sad to report that after the next one according to the author there will be no more Artemis books. Because Artemis will, i guess, will be too grown up by then. It always seems that way with good adolescence hero we can never follow them into adulthood and see what they do. First, Harry Potter ended now Artemis is ending i expect my new found affection for Alex Rider will soon be thwarted in the same manner the only person who broke this mold is Anna Maccafferey and he Acorna character we follow Acorna from childhood right into motherhood over a series of a 14 or so books.

But i digress the actual story invokes the fact that Artemis has contracted a fiery illness called the Atlantis complex it affects criminals and later calls them to regret their actions and later make up for them by doing a series of odd rituals. its sort of like OCD. It also makes you not want to trust people. Artemis has a alternate personality. Is this a sweet personality named Orion who goes about spouting love poetry and being annoying

In order form Artemis to reclaims himself he must not only battle his old enemy turn bowl route but also struggle to master his mind he obviously does it or there wouldn't be a eighth book but I'm not going to tell you how.Enjoy this book share it with the young people in your life. In my opinion the audio book is great bed time story i rate this book a 8.75 out of 10 i think it was a very good story and had very few slow points. that's hard to achieve in books. According to a interview i watched with the author he says he only uses 1/4 of what he writes and edits everyday every morning and last ate night. they say writers must kill there darlings and i have trouble with that but Mr, Colfer is the master at doing just that.
