This is another instance of the paperback being different from the original hardback. I mean apart from the obvious difference of hardbacks and paperbacks.
Eoin Colfer’s fifth Artemis Fowl book is just out in paperback. And the slow cheapskates who waited this long get more. For less money. Artemis Fowl and the Lost Colony has a picture of Fowl Manor and one of Haven City. There’s a spotter’s guide to “the people” and a page of the gnommish alphabet. I’d always thought you had to work it out yourself. Hah!
Like the four earlier Artemis Fowl books, this one is great. (Though I don’t entirely recommend reading it just after an episode of Doctor Who. I’m still shaking.) There’s a hint we may not have to wait too long for the next one. And there’s a sneak preview of Artemis Fowl, the graphic novel.
The photo of Eoin has persuaded me that I could (possibly) have been wrong last year when I didn’t believe Eoin’s claim to owning only one jacket. Read my interview here for more information on Eoin’s shirt and jacket status, and a few other irrelevant facts.
