Oooo! I LOVE Bartimaeus (I never get his name right, though :wink: )! I always thought that he was a bit like Rincewind, or even Om...

I didn't like the third one, though. AND I didn't like that girl, who's name I've already forgotten (I'm horrible at remembering names... :oops: )

Barti is awesome! I like his "beentheredonethat,itwasgreat,nowwhat?" attitude; his sense of self importance contrasts nicely with his actual middling demon ranking. :D I can't help but like him - that's probably his defence mechanism against getting killed.

I liked book 3, but it was the super sad ending that kind of ruined things. But it wouldn't feel right if everyone got a happy ending and a marriage. Her name was Kathleen "Kitty" Jones.

I was going to post this link to an awesome BT cartoon, but the artist deleted all her stuff after a bout of...depression? Or something like that. :cry:

OK, how did you do that?? :shock: You must be verrrry charming, 'cause the shopkeeper seems to like you... :wink: I only have the second book (my cousin has the first one, and I'm not sure anymore, but I think my mom bought the third too, but it's gone lost after several re-reads, and finally my cousin has re-bought it... usually I'm not the kind of person who loses books...)

All right, but I've seen the dutch version in a bookstore once, and it's quite pocket-like... but still... doesn't matter. Enjoy it! :wink:

Movie info.

The movie rights were sold, but that doesn't mean they're going to make one. A film was never certain - it seems like a rumor's been going around.
I think my imagination is better than a screen. :D [/url]

There's nothing, but really nothing on IMDb (which is my mostly used and absolutely trustworthy source or information), so I don't think there'll be anything in the next couple of years...

Same as this, I'd like to see the Artemis Fowl sequel on the big screen, but no hope for that either...

From Wiki:
An Artemis Fowl movie has been confirmed by Eoin Colfer.[13] In an AFC interview, Colfer stated that the screenplay was still being written, but pre-production was at a standstill because of the recently-ended WGA strike.[14] He stated as a joke that it would be finished "two years after he died." [15]

In an August 2008 interview, Colfer stated that "we are finished writing it, now we are just waiting for the green light."

In addition, at the 2008 Hay Festival Colfer stated that a dispute was being settled over whether the film should be a CGI production or shot in live-action, with Colfer apparently favouring the latter.[citation needed]

According to Colfer, the movie will combine the plot of the first two books and there will be a new ending to it, but the rest of it will be true to the books.

Wait, are you talking about an Artic Incident movie? I hadn't known the first was was out...I remember seeing "Win a role in the upcoming AF movie!" printed at the back of the books. That was like 4 years ago. :P I wonder how long that'll take.

This is it about Eoin Colfer:
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1379619/

No references to any title of the books... :(

Airman is going to be in theaters though. That's a positif thing...
