review SPOILER ALERT! 2019-04-01 15:11
A Good Installment in the Series
The Opal Deception - Eoin Colfer

 

Like the previous books in this series, this installment takes the reader on a wild ride. Of course, the name of the book is a dead giveaway when it comes to the plot.

 

But the rest is an action-packed blur where Artemis — a boy thief with a girl’s name — learns to accept that he has friends who might need his help — regardless of his previously mercenary leanings.

 

There is humor and there are lessons to be learned along the way.

 

The next book in the series is calling my name.

Cute Children's Book
Imaginary Fred - Eoin Colfer,Oliver Jeffers

Sam was lonely and longed for a friend. Only under the perfect circumstances does an imaginary come along, and when it does, it is special indeed, and that was imaginary Fred. Fred had had real friends before, but only until they had found another real friend, then Fred would fade and wait for another. Sam and Fred did everything together-- they were inseparable, until one day, Sam met Sammi and Fred was sure he would start to fade again. Fred was so sad; he had never had such a good real friend as Sam, but he knew this is how things went. Then he discovered Sammi also had an imaginary friend named Frieda and they (all 4 of them) did everything together. The story has a unique and happy ending.
This was my granddaughter's favorite book last year, and we reread it many times. We like the way it looks, the illustrations, as well as the story. Very cute.

Illegal
Illegal - Eoin Colfer,Andrew Donkin,Giovanni Rigano
It was exhausting but it showed their reality. The journey that immigrants travel to find hope, to find their new life.
 
Months ago, Ebo’s sister left for a better life and now, his brother has left without him. Hoping to catch up with him, little Ebo leaves and finds that this journey is long and exhausting. With no money and no papers, he must first cross the Sahara Desert and then find passage across the Mediterranean Sea. Each of these stretches is dangerous and carries its own risks as Ebo comes to understand.
 
This was an excellent graphic novel to present this information to young readers. Easy to follow frames with detailed illustrations bring Ebo’s story to life. Presented with “now” and “then” stories that alternate in this graphic novel, we “now” begin Ebo’s story as he makes his journey across the Mediterranean Sea and “then” the story begins when Ebo realizes that his older brother has left him. This is a graphic novel that readers will be talking about.

Sequels sind auch nur ein Abklatsch
Artemis Fowl. Die Verschwörung - Eoin Colfer

Oder eben nicht. 

Reihen sind ja immer so eine Sache. Gefallen einem die Einsteigermodelle, so ist die Erwartungshaltung selten zu erfüllen. Gefällt einem der erste Band nicht, so kommt es wohl eher sporadisch dazu, dass man weitere liest. 

Aber Artemis Fowl - Die Verschwörung hat mich nun wirklich überrascht. Der erste Teil war für mich zwar unterhaltsam, aber hat mich auch nicht so richtig mitgerissen. Ich dachte, dass liegt daran, dass ich aus dem Alter für solche Bücher bin. (Es war ein tragischer, melancholischer Midlifecrisis-Moment...)

Wahrscheinlich hätte ich den zweiten Band gar nicht gelesen, läge er nicht auf meinem schändlichen Stapel der ungelesenen Bücher. Doch da ich gewillt bin diesen Stapel zu minimieren musste auch der zweite Band gelesen werden. Zum Glück.

Man kennt die Darsteller und die Umgebung, in der man sich befindet. Nicht verkehrt. Aber vor allem hat mir der Zusammenschluss von Artemis und den Elfen gefallen. Eine gute Sache. Man findet Witz, feinen (irisch/englischen) Humor und eine kurzweilige, gute Geschichte. Die tatsächlich auch Lust macht, den dritten Teil zu lesen. Aus Gründen muss die ganze Sache ja auch erfolgreich gewesen sein. 

Also Artemis, ich bleibe dir treu. Denn der zweite Teil gefiel mir tatsächlich besser als der erste!
