The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Artemis Fowl and the Time Paradox, the sixth book in the criminally good Artemis Fowl series by Eoin Colfer. Read by the actor Gerry O'Brien.
Artemis Fowl is no stranger to trouble. In fact he's a magnet for it. Man-eating trolls, armed and dangerous (not to mention high-tech) fairies, flame-throwing goblins - he's seen the lot. He had decided to forego criminal activity of the more magical kind. However...now his mother is gravely ill. He must travel back through time to steal the cure from the clutches of the devious mastermind.... Artemis Fowl.
That's right. With fairy ally Captain Holly Short by his side, Artemis is going back in time to do battle with his deadliest enemy yet. Himself.
Eoin Colfer was born and raised in Wexford in the southeast of Ireland. He began writing plays at an early age and, as an adult, continued to write. Artemis Fowl, his first book featuring the brilliant young anti-hero, was an immediate international best seller and won several prestigious awards.
Winner of the WHSmith Children's Book of the Year Award and Children's Book of the Year at the Children's Book Awards.
Shortlisted for the Whitbread Children's Book of the Year Award.
"Engagingly vivid, exciting and witty" ( The Telegraph)
"Fast, funny and very exciting" ( Daily Mail)

Back In Time
I've been reading this series of books on and off since I was 10 years old, and I still enjoy them wholeheartidly in my mid-20s. I keep coming back to the characters, the adventure and the quick wit of these wonderful books. An easy read and easily followed, but beyond exciting, listening to it is like watching a great action/comedy in your head. How Colfer deals with the back and forths of time continuum theory is admirable, and nothing but fun. A huge plus is the short story at the end where we get to hear about Holly's initiation in to L.E.P and it is nothing but the juiciest cherry on top of an already exciting book.
ACHTUNG: Halbe Audioqualität zum vollen Preis...
Diese Rezension bezieht sich nur auf die angebotene Audioqualität. Ich finde die halbierte Klangqualität die sehr an eine 70er Jahre Telefonverbindung erinnert sehr ärgerlich! Ein Blick in die technischen Daten offenbart: Audio: aac, 22050 Hz, stereo, 62 kb/s - Normal wäre: 44100 Hz, stereo, 125 kb/s Halbierter Frequenzbereich und halbierte Bitrate, was auch deutlich zu hören ist - und ja, ich habe beim Download "Beste Qualität" ausgewählt. Für den vollen Preis finde ich das ziemlich unverschämt, daher nur einen Stern in der Gesamtbewertung.
