Artemis Fowl: The Last Guardian

The Last Guardian - Eoin Colfer I finished off The Last of Artemis in a weekend; it's been a long eight books, waiting for the end (and what an end, and a loop back final paragraph...)It's hard to say why I love these books; maybe, as another reviewer said, they're just plain escapism from start to finish. You've got to love an author who names one of his characters Kolin Ozkopy, for a start. That took me a minute to figure that one out, but I chortled and smirked my way through the whole book.As for that ending: without giving away any spoilers, I suspected how it would work from the first few chapters. I think I preferred the criminal mastermind Artemis to the nice one, but I suspect Artemis was always nice, just driven to crime because in the end - and as he shows here - he can stand up and make the hard choices.
