  1. I have just listened to this as an audiobook, it was not at all what I was expecting! Artemis is a teenage genius criminal. He hates sunlight so he looks pale and creepy. He's living in some sort of manor house (Fowl Manor, ha ha) with his Miss Havisham-esque crazed mother and a creepy Butler. In this world, fairies are real as are dwarves, leprecons...but fairies are actually a sort of secret kick-ass police force...and Artemis steals one of them to try to get their gold as a ransom. The narrator of the audiobook is Adrian Dunbar but he sounds just like James Nesbitt i.e. very menacing indeed
  2. Half Moon Investigations by Eoin Colfer This was my first successful deviation on audio from teenage chick-lit. Read by Tom Farrelly, it is the perfect voice for this book. Although I'm not too convinced about some of the voices, amusing as they were!

Set in the late 1800's, this is historical fiction for young people at its best. Colfer has taken techniques from classic novels and tales from legends and woven them together to create a book that will appeal to boys (sword fights and inventing, anyone) and girls (there is a little love interest in th
  4. Fourteen-year-old Cosmo Hill longs to escape from the Clarissa Fayne Institute for Parentally Challenged Boys. When a rare chance to get away comes, he grabs it, but the attempt goes fatally wrong. He can feel his life force ebbing away, sucked out of him by a strange blue Parasite ... until a wisecracking gang of kids burst in, blast the creature and save him. They are the Supernaturalists, dedicated to ridding the world of these life-sucking blue parasites. When they realise that Cosmo also has the ability to see these blue creatures, they enlist him as one of them too. <iframe
