What type of book is it? What did you like about it? Reply soon, Susan 3 Read the email and match the paragraphs to the descriptions A-D.
Hi Susan! Don't worry about which book to take because I've just read a brilliant fantasy thriller set in Ireland. It's called Artemis Fowl and it's by my favourite author, Eoin Golfer. Basically, it's a fairy tale for our times. It's about a fairy police officer called Captain Holly Short who is kidnapped by the twelve-year-old evil genius. Artemis Fowl. He wants the fairies to pay a lot of gold to get her back. Unfortunately for Artemis. Holly Short is a member of the fairy secret police and her senior officer will do anything to rescue her.
So, as you can imagine, the plot is very exciting and fast-paced and it is very funny, too. The characters are also well developed. There is a lot of action and interesting high-tech gadgets. The theme of good versus evil is strong throughout. All in all, Artemis Fowl is an excellent book that I think is very well written.

Het lied betekende in Engeland een doorbraak voor de groep, omdat het daar hun eerste nummer 1-hit was. In Nederland behaalde het slechts nummer 23 als hoogste positie, en was daarmee niet eens zo succesvol als hun eerste single Overload.
Hun volgende single voor Island Records, Round roundgeproduceerd door Xenomaniawerd in Engeland wederom een nummer 1-hit, en werd in Nederland hun eerste grote hit. Het behaalde de tweede plaats en stond zeven weken in de Top Voorganger One Touch wist hier nooit de albumlijst te halen, maar met hun tweede album behalen ze nummer De derde single van het album, Strongerkomt in Nederland weliswaar minder hoog nummer 5 dan Round roundmaar blijft langer in de hitlijst hangen, en verkoopt zodoende beter.

Het derde album van de groep, Threewordt eind uitgebracht. De eerste single Hole in the headwederom een Xenomania -productie, behaalt in Nederland een tweede plaats. De tweede single Too lost in yougeschreven door Diane Warrenwas afkomstig van de soundtrack van de Engelse film Love Actually.

In de korte afwezigheid tussen het derde en vierde album bevalt Mutya op 23 maart van een dochter, Tahlia Maya. De groep gaf hun eerste optreden in een jaar tijd bij het Live 8 -concert in Edinburgh.
Mutya vertelde journalisten daar: "De foto's van stervende kinderen maken me aan het huilen. Sinds ik moeder ben, raken deze foto's me en ik denk dan bij mezelf 'als dat mijn dochter was zou ik er iets aan willen doen'. De single verscheen eind septemberwaarna het vierde studioalbum Taller in More Ways in oktober uitkwam. Push The Button bereikte in Nederland nummer 3. Kort na een schijnbare ziekte, waardoor Mutya niet in staat was de tweede single Ugly te promoten, werd op 21 december bekendgemaakt dat Mutya de Sugababes had verlaten.
Mutya is vervangen door zangeres Amelle Berrabah 22 april die voordat ze bij de Sugababes kwam, samen met haar jongere zus de groep Boo2 vormde. De eerste single die met Amelle werd uitgebracht was Red Dress. Uiteraard was de stem van Mutya daarbij vervangen door die van Amelle, maar verder was het nummer identiek aan de versie met Mutya, zoals die op het album was verschenen. Na het uitkomen van de derde single kwam er ook een heruitgave van het album.
Op de nieuwe versie van Taller in More Ways werden drie tracks opnieuw opgenomen met de zang van Amelle Berrabah. In een kleine maand werden in Engeland, Schotland en Wales achttien concerten gegeven.
Tijdens een van de concerten werd bekendgemaakt dat de ballad Follow Me Home de nieuwe single zou worden. Het succes viel in Engeland erg tegen; het nummer flopte en werd in Nederland niet meer uitgebracht. De titel van het album verwijst naar hun eerste single Overload. Amelle is slechts op drie nummers op het album te horen: twee nieuwe nummers en de single Red Dress.
