Oh yeah, sounds like Artemis Fowl was a fun change of pace, then. (Actually, now that you mention it, lately it seems like most of the books I read are [business-related] self-help books, too, and a few other nonfiction kind of books...In a way, I think maybe reading a lot of those kinds of books makes it more fun to once in a while pick up a fiction, which is nice. [Fantasy is interesting, since I feel like even though each world is separate from the others, they do all kind of follow these certain rules or expectations that I can easily believe could be a bit jarring to those who haven't read a lot of fantasy. Although I think Artemis Fowl is a bit of an odd case which makes it a little harder to follow, since most fantasy stories spend a lot of time developing the world of the story, just exploring and explaining how things are set up, whereas Artemis Fowl falls more into the crime fiction genre, and even though there are a lot of fantasy elements, you're mainly left with the implication that the fairy world and its politics and law enforcement setup is actually pretty similar to the modern human world.]
Translation--Ah, yeah, I'm familiar with that. (The same thing happens a lot of times when we get English dubs of animes from Japan. Sometimes the name changes make sense and are close enough to the original that they still reflect the character well, but others the name is just completely different, and if you watch both the sub and the dub, it feels like you're watching two completely different characters.) Out of curiosity, what are the Spanish names for the characters?
Nice! I'll be looking forward to hearing what you think. C:
“After all, absolutely no one can help but suspect a criminal, liar, and manipulator of committing crimes, lying, and manipulating. And of course, no one is more aware of that simple fact than Artemis Fowl.”
Opal sets into motion her most diabolical scheme yet, to frame Artemis and turn his closest friends against him. Only this time she has a new calculating partner who knows Artemis better than he knows himself. [An Artemis Fowl fanfiction, set after The Atlantic Complex.]
