I wasn't sure what to expect when I clicked on my iPod. I loved the Artemis Fowl books, and I almost made the mistake of skipping Half Moon Investigations, because it wasn't Artemis Fowl. What a mistake that would have been.
This book was a refreshing break from fantasy world. It was a blast from start to finish, and I found myself falling in love with all the characters. The voice was so fun – he captured that old noir PI Mike Hammer feel in the body of a young boy, and it worked perfectly.
What's so refreshing about Half Moon Investigations is Colfer's ability to combine so many wacky characters into one story, and have them all work with one another to build an amazing storyline that truly draws the reader in.
