Heylo! I'm new! And I have a funny excerpt!





SpiderZombie
I just finished reading 'Artemis Fowl: The Eternity Code' and just about cracked my head off when I read the following paragraph.

"Chapter 9: Ghosts in the Machine

Vacant lot, Malthouse Industrial Estate, South Chicago

Jon Spiro had not hired Pex and Chips for their debating skills. In the job interview, they had only been set one task. A hundred applicants were handed a walnut and asked to smash it however they could. Only two succeded. Pex had shouted at the walnut for a few minutes, then smashed it between his giant palms. Chips had opted fo ra more controversial method. He placed the walnut on the table, grabbed his interviewer by the onytail, and used the mans forehead to smash the nut. Both men were hired on the spot... They were not allowed to leave Chhicago, as this could involve map reading, somethign Pex and Chips were not very good at."

^.^ I was laughing so hard!!!! Laughing

I have read the first book of Artemis Fowl, and I really enjoyed it. It's quite original, and funny to read, and very thrilling! A bit like a light version of Lord of the Rings!

Wow! I've heard it put that way, but that's an awesome discription. There's actually four Artemis Fowl's out right now.

Artemis Fowl (duh)
Artemis Fowl: The Arctic Incident
Artemis Fowl: The Eternity Code

And the last one has something to do with opals or something. I just can't seem to find it any where... Confused Oh, well.

Artemis Fowl is a good book, very exciting and all, just like harry potter, only that it's more high-tech.

I haven't read any of them. Are they worth reading? I've never really heard much about them. Is it more like a teen adventure story in the vein of Harry Potter or something a little more grown up?
