The Atlantis Complex by Eoin Colfer
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I love the Artemis Fowl books, because Artemis is such a different and interesting character, and so are every one of his adventures. However, after reading the past two AF books, Atlantis Complex was a little bit of a let-down. First of all, Artemis has developed Atlantis Complex, a mental disorder with many side-effects that keeps Artemis from being his genius self. Second, I wasn’t extremely pleased with the plot itself. I don’t want to give too much away, but the ‘problem’ of the book basically solved itself! There was definitely action, but I really considered the plot to be a little weak when compared to the other Artemis Fowl books. The book also ended with a cliffhanger, which was troubling, so there must be another book. Hopefully the next book makes me remember what makes the Artemis Fowl books special! I must say, though, that this book wasn’t a complete disappointment. I’m only comparing it to Eoin Colfer’s other works. I brought the book on vacation and was motivated to finish it; all I’m saying is that (in my opinion) the other Artemis Fowl books were better.
