You're a bigger person than I am. I didn't care for Artemis Fowl either. Couldn't get into them and I blamed the writing. You're more willing to give a writer another chance on a different concept. I tend to think that if I don't like the writing, I probably won't enjoy anything else by that author.

Of course, that worked in reverse for me once. I loved Christopher Moore's LAMB and went seeking his other stuff...all of which I loathed. And now I'm afraid to read anything that came out since LAMB. I'm kinda weird.

And, YAY! You're reading SOMEDAY THIS PAIN...


I really only disliked the first Artemis Fowl book. He grew on me after that and I found myself actually liking the characters and their maturity and development.

Brian ~ Have you read Fluke? Better than most of the other Moore I've read, but not much can hold a candle to Lamb!


I couldn't tell if this book was for YA or not. Most of Fowl's other books have been kind of the same as Artemis Fowl, so I'd be interested to see how this one fared without all of the stunts and flashing lights. (But there will be fencing - I'm sure!)

Julie Carter

I, too, disliked Artemis Fowl. A lot. And then I tried another book by Colfer, The Wish List, and I didn't like it either. I'm not touching anything else he's written. Ick.


I just turned over my ARC of _the dead and the gone_ and saw that you're quoted under the "First there was Life As We Knew It..." section!

Congratulations! That's really cool!
