Even though the strategy didn't work for my brothers with this book, (it did work for two other series though) the strategy to get non readers to read works and it really is a fun story. I highly recommend whether or not you are a fowl fan or not.
Artemis Fowl, from what I've gathered from the graphic-novel adaptation, is an extremely well-crafted novel. The fairy world is rich, full of technology and well realized. Artemis himself is an interesting character, with several companions. The graphic novel is well drawn and well colored. The redaction from novel to graphic novel is my biggest worry. While pages and pages go into the description of the characters in a novel, often only a drawing will suffice in the graphic adaptation. The creators of the graphic novel fix this by dedicating a "file" page to most of the characters and several of the settings and technologies.
I have somewhat mixed feelings about Artemis Fowl: The Graphic Novel, and I want to explain why I'm giving it **** instead of ***** or ***. The adaptation does tend to drag just a little bit, and I have to say, as someone who's read the graphic novel but not the novel, that the novel has to be incomparably better. I generally don't like adaptations too much, but this is a very strong effort. In particular, I liked the lettering, which varied from when someone was talking to when someone was thinking or speaking off-page to when something was generally being explained. There is too much detail and craft in this book to give it a *** rating, but not enough overall strength to give it a ***** rating. ****
We got it with the intention of giving it to our grandson who likes fantasy type books.
We had to get out magnifying lenses to read everything. It should have been published in a
much larger book. We have no idea how something like too small print ever past the editor!!!
