Artemis Fowl's past crimes have come back to haunt him. Artemis' mother is dying from a uncurable fairy disease. The cure lies in a lemur-an extinct lemur. Artemis is responsible for the demise of the last lemur. Now, with Holly Short on his side and a lillte help from Foaly and a demon, he must go back in time to prevent his younger self from stealing the lemur! Will he be able to outwit himself and save his mother's life?
The Time Paradox is a fast paced action book about a boy who is forced to go back in time to save his mother from a terminal fariy illness. His main enemy in the book is his younger self which causes an interesting conflict, although you do have to read the other 5 books first.
This is probably one of my favorite in the Artemis Foul series. I was tempted to pass on it because I was a little disappointed in the last book, but I'm glad I didn't. I loved seeing the old Artemis (or rather the young coniving Artemis) I kind of miss him.
I have to be honest and say that I was getting tired of the whole Artemis Fowl franchise. I just about managed to finish the last book and I was starting to wonder if I could manage to read the next one. So much has changed over five books that I wondered what Colfer would do in book 6 to keep things interesting and fresh.Well book 6 is here and it has totally blown me away! It was fantastic! The idea of Fowl going back in time and confronting his younger self is really intriguing - the idea of meeting a younger Mulch Diggums, the chance to see Root again......this was too good to miss!Artemis goes back 8 years with Holly to stop his younger self from selling the last lemur on earth to the Extinctionists. He needs the brain fluid from the lemur to save his mother who is dying from a deadly fairy disease. But his younger self won't give the lemur up without a fight and when Holly is captured by the Extinctionists and put on trial instead, Artemis the Eldest has to risk going to save her. Can he get her back, fight his younger self, fight the insane Damon Kronksy, fight Butler, keep an eye on Mulch Diggums AND get back into the time stream to get back to his own time - ALL in the next three days? If not, he'll be trapped in the past - with himself!For the first time in a long time, I am really looking forward to the next Artemis Fowl book!
