But the story did not revolve around such issues until TTP. That's why I say my complaint about the "whole series" is the "increase" of the presence of these messages. They sure are in all the preceding titles, but definitely not to the same extent. TTP just took it way too far. That's what I'm saying.You are wrong. Environmentalist issue is something you can see through whole serie. Just remember on whaler on first book or Green train of second. I can't remember anthing from 3rd and 4th but I am sure there is some people who know books better than me and can add something from them. Anyway when I saw this theme in TTP I weren't realy suprised by that.
I don't know, we never knew too much about Angeline (from what I remember) before, and I didn't feel it was anything jarring to find out she was a humanitarian/conservationist. She seems like she could easily be that kind of person to me...I mean, I never really saw Angeline as someone who was so worried about saving an extinct species before, nor did I picture Artemis as someone who would be so emotionally torn up because he eliminated silky safakas . . . I don't know, the fairies loving animals and nature was fine and realistic (them being more "in tune" with the earth and everything) but I think the whole lemur guilt tripping thing with Artemis and Angeline was kind of out of character. And the whole Extinctionist thing (while definitely generating many great scenes and ideas) was also kind of forced.
Yeah, that's true, and that is worth something. I think I would have liked to see more detail to make it come to life more (perhaps seeing the reactions of characters from the previous books), but I guess Colfer always does try to wrap things up quickly, to avoid giving a sense of anticlimax, which is something an author always has to navigate.However, it does kind of show that good things can come out of really bad things.
