Artemis Fowl: The Time Paradox

Artemis Fowl: The Time Paradox - Eoin Colfer In this novel, another element is added to the plot: time travel. This had already been seen in the last book, but here we get more information about the way it works and about the consequences of it. Also, this time the time travel takes place between two points in time of the same world (in The Lost Colony the time travel was from one point in time of our world to another of the demon world and vice versa).

Probably the most interesting result of the time travel is that we see how Artemis was before meeting Holly and how he is now. We, as the readers, are not the only ones who see this. Artemis himself is surprised to notice how much he has changed in the last few years.

This book, like the last one, is lighter, although in a less childish way. One of the side effects of the time travel is that Holly is reversed to a younger self, a younger self that is the fairies’ version of a teenager. It is funny to see how she knows the reason behind her unusual feelings and thoughts but can’t do anything about it.

Better than the last one, but still not as good as the first four.
