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. ****
The novel itself was easy to follow in this format. Thoughts are printed in colored blocks, keyed to each character. Muttered comments are printed in dashed word bubbles. The panels flow well across the page.
Why would the publisher take such good work and put it in such a worthless binding? The binding destroys the value.
Parent note: Some "hell" and "damn"
