Cynically Sweet (Booklikes)

I'm not the most active user here on Booklikes. In fact, sometimes I forget that it even exists. However, I endeavor to come back and post more stuff that I enjoy.

My reviews aren't guaranteed to be something you agree with and my perspective on books isn't something most people generally want. However, I still hope that there's something you can gain from them and you don't feel as if you've wasted your time reading them.


Don't just take my word for it; read the books yourself and form your own opinion!

The Arctic Incident

The Arctic Incident - Eoin Colfer As a sequel to the first Artemis Fowl book, this novel is just as impressive. The novel spends a lot of time setting up the history of the evil characters, just as it does spending time setting up the history of Artemis' father and the unfortunate events leading up to his disappearance.

Once again, it has a wonderful connection between the Mudmen and the People. Though the People detest the Mudmen in many ways and Holly seems to bear a large grudge against Fowl, it's nice to read them working together to a few like-minded goals. The technology between them is immense and it is also nice to read that Foaly and Artemis have the same level of intelligence. Sharing it, they're all able to complete the challenges put to the group.
