Nice! (The fourth and fifth books are definitely among my favorites of the series...though I guess I have so many favorites maybe that doesn't say much. XD) After that there's just three more books. (6, The Time Paradox, 7, the Atlantis Complex, and finally 8, The Last Guardian.)
Huh, that is interesting, I hadn't heard that, though it makes sense that different parts of Ireland would have different accents. (It's the same for Britain and the US, both of which use English as their primary language, with lots of variations in accents from region to region. For example, in the US, there's a Southern accent, a New York accent, among others.) And yeah, English-speakers do hear the differences in different accents. (Often I'm not very good at identifying which is which, but when it comes to speaking the English language, German accents, French accents, Japanese accents, British accents, Chinsese accents, Korean accents, Italian accents, Middle-Eastern accents, American accents, etc. all are very distinctive. Though again, I'm often not all that good at picking out an accent and naming which one it is.
One nice thing about the Artemis Fowl audiobooks (the ones read by Nathanial Parker--I think there are other audiobook releases in other countries, but his are the ones I'm most familiar with), is that he reads Artemis with an Irish accent, as well as Butler and Juliet. I'm not sure if it's region-specific, but it's very well done.
No problem, don't worry about it! C: (I've used Google Translate to try to communicate with some people, and I never have the slightest idea what's coming out the other end since most of the time I don't know anything about the language, so you're way ahead of me.)
“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.]
