      I had heard some mothers in a bookstore talking about Artemis Fowl and how good it was, so I finally gave in and bought the first book Summary Artemis Fowl is a child genius billionaire criminal mastermind who has discovered that fairies and the like are real and is seeking to exploit them He does this by kidnapping a LEPrecon for Lower Elements Police Reconnaissance The Lower Elements live underground, having been driven there by the Mud People or humans I decided that the book was not good in [...]

      Colfer has described this series as Die Hard, with fairies , which is a reference to an old Hollywood joke After the phenomenal success of that movie, a lot of writers started pitching their scripts as Die Hard, with blank , such as Speed Die Hard on a Bus , or Air Force One Die Hard, on Air Force One , or, as the joke goes, the unfortunate who wanted to make Die Hard, in a building.If you have actually seen Die Hard, you might recall Hans Gruber, the wealthy, cunning, erudite, European villain [...]

      From the get go it appears Artemis Fowl is going to be about Artemis Fowl, a criminal boy genius with Sherlock Holmes like powers of deduction, but then bomb squad esque faeries take over the story and we end up spending just as much time, if not , reading about them That s fine since they re interesting and their story moves with a good dash of fun and excitement This is another of those books with a redeemable bad guy protagonist We shouldn t, but we do root for him, at least in some way, shap [...]

      Artemis Fowl Artemis Fowl, Book 1By Eoin ColferNarrated By Nathaniel ParkerI borrowed this book from the library I figured everyone in the world has read this but me and thought I would catch up What a hoot Loved it I don t know what I thought it was going to be but I didn t expect a 12 year old genius villain My goodness, I thought it was great The fairies, dwarves, trolls, and the silly things that happen, I giggled so much It was so silly I can see why kids love this book I am definitely goin [...]

      SPOILER FREE review if you will not open the spoiler tags How does one describe Artemis Fowl Various psychiatrists have tried and failed WORLD BUILDING All the fairies, elves, dwarves, goblins, trolls live in the underground world This world has its own technology which is beyond our comprehension and have their own lawsARACTERSArtemis Fowl of course Doesn t this name sounds Awesome No need to say, he is a super genius criminal You know how old he is Just 12 YEARS Doesn t it sound odd An adolesc [...]

    9. Drew Nelson says:

      Artemis Fowl, though entertaining and often well told, is one of those books that has bound itself with the shackles of pandering to a perceived audience and thus will never rise above a certain level For example, the dwarf character defeats his enemies with the help of his terribly powerful flatulence than once The whole race tunnels with the power of poop The main faerie character, Holly, is a girl trying to break her way through a glass ceiling that no one seems to notice throughout the book [...]

      First and foremost, let it be said that I am reading a book intended for someone half my age Artemis Fowl is the kind of book that grabs a kid by the eyeballs because of the pretty, shiny cover But once the cover s open and the story laid out, Artemis Fowl is an incredibly gripping story about growing up, equality and acceptance This was exactly the case when I first read Artemis Fowl I immediately loved the intelligent, resourceful, but ultimately unhappy Artemis A better character a teenager c [...]

      A genius A criminal mastermind A millionaire And he is only twelve years old Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer is my favorite book ever EVER I read it for the first time when I was fourteen years old and have been reading the series ever since I ve re read the book over and over again I can t even remember how many times I have read it but by now this book feels like an old friend and it s just as amazing as when I read it the first time Now that I ve re read it once again, I think it s time for a rev [...]

      We were on holiday, and the little cottage we were staying in had a huge range of books Unfortunately most of the adult books were colossal monsters that there was no way I was going to read in a week So instead I decided to see what modern kids books were like and picked up Artemis Fowl, a book aimed at boys of about 11 years of age.The character of Artemis is 12, and a crime lord Helped by his trusty bodyguard Butler he has discovered that fairies are real, and also really do have a pot of gol [...]

    13. Wanda says:

      Artemis Fowl or should that be Foul is an interesting mix of Lex Luthor and Encyclopedia Brown He s a boy genius with designs on leprechaun gold and he is willing to kidnap and deceive his way to his goal But the fairy world is not going to just roll over and submit to Artemis demands, especially not Captain Holly Short, who is being held captive in Fowl Manor.It s a quick read, well written If I was part of the intended demographic, I would probably be impressed, but it s a bit tame for adult [...]

      I loved rereading this It s been a long, long time since I read this when I was a child and it was great returning to the world of the 12 year old Artemis Fowl a child genius and criminal mastermind who has decided to make the fairy world fall down at his feet and give up their gold so he can rebuild his family fortune.I had forgotten a lot of the details about this story so for most of the book it was like reading it for the first time, and gradually in a great way the memories came back to me [...]

      To be honest I haven t read the whole book, and there is a slim chance that I might try to continue and so I post this review.The problem is that the onslaught of cheap jabs at the barbarian humans destroying the earth is becoming extremely irritating And miraculously Ireland is still nice and green, but give those humans a few hundred years and it will be destroyed Please It completely distracts from the story Why do we have to spoon feed children dogmatic propaganda Don t get me wrong I m all [...]

      Reviewed by Me for TeensReadTooI ve been trying to find a new series to hold me over until the next Harry Potter book and I ve finally found it Meet Artemis Fowl the Second, a twelve year old genius who doesn t want to go to school, is worried about his mother s fragile mental health, is preoccupied with his father coming back from the dead, and who is determined to add to his family s coffers by any means possible In a word, Artemis is an evil genius, and you just can t help but love him Or hat [...]

      If I had thought of this story, I would have told it, but I would have done quite a few things differently, if possible In other words, I like the story itself with his family s wealth dangerously on the wane, criminal mastermind and 12 year old boy, Artemis Fowl, formulates a bold plan to kidnap a fairy and seize a ransom of gold But his is not the only point of view on either side of the incident We hear from his loyal employee, Butler, as well as the fairies This equal billing actually underm [...]

    19. Heather says:

      I ve seen these books in the stores for a while, but had actually steered clear of them because I thought they were just a Harry Potter knock off The other day, I was in the kid section with Daniel while he was playing with the train table, and they caught my eye again As they had the first 3 books in the series for 9.98, I decided to give them a try Who am I to pass up a bargain Well, let me just say, it is not a Harry Potter knock off Yes, it deals with sprites, dwarves, leprechauns, and other [...]

    20. Aurora says:

      This book was exactly what I wanted it to be fun, fast paced and entertaining It has an original and action packed plot, compelling characters and very interesting world building I flew through it and if I owned the rest of the books in this series there s a real chance I wouldn t be getting much else done today.

    21. José says:

      Una lectura ligera y entretenida El sentido del humor de Colfer me result similar al de Terry Pratchett salvando las distancias, claro Terry es nico y el hecho de que el protagonista fuera un villano me gust mucho Rese a pendiente

    22. Kimberley doruyter says:

      much better then i thought it was going to be,but there were no surprises in the plot.

    23. Megan Baxter says:

      I enjoyed this than I expected too, coming right on the heels of reading one of the Percy Jackson books, which are okay, but nothing special Sometimes the universe just throws books at me in clumps like that Or, to be precise, the London public library system Note The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the changes in policy and enforcement You can read why I came to this decision here.In the meantime, you can read the entire review at Smorgasbook

    24. George Jankovic says:

      This book is an interesting mix of fantasy and scifi Hi tech meets the fairies I loved its world building especially all the lore on the fairies, their location, their rules and regulations etc Artemis a genius, but my favorite characters were Butler, his butler, and Captain Holy Short, a fairy who is his victim The book is a quick read It will be hard to put it down even if you have to.

    25. Stephie says:

      Es ideal para pasar el rato, una lectura ideal para verano, aunque no me lleno lo suficiente Puede que el problema sea que es un libro introductorio a este mundo y sus personajes, no s , habr que ver en el pr ximo Igual me gusto, me desarrollar m s en la rese a al libro.

    26. Madeleine Montuna says:

      I love the Harry Potter series, so i often compare book to Harry Porter The book Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer has been on the shelves for years now but i never had the chance to pick it up People often encouraged me to read it,often times referring to the books as the next Harry Potter While they have some of the same fictional ,imaginative , well written storyline doesn t mean they should be compared Just because a book might be as highly liked as Harry Potter doesn t mean they follow the same s [...]

      So, interesting I finally gave this a go after years of curiosity I d heard such mixed things about it that I finally had to discover for myself what I thought of it.End result I totally enjoyed it It was one of the few books that I really wasn t sure how it was going to end And the best worst part is that I really wasn t sure how I wanted it to end Was I happy satisfied with the ending Yes.One of the main characters in this book is Artemis Fowl, a young boy 12 who s mature far beyond his years [...]

      Confidence is ignorance, advised the centaur If you re feeling cocky, it s because there s something you don t know.When I was younger, I got this with my Dad when I was in Sainsbury s I thought it would be a good book, and when I got home, immediately started reading it I was bored by it very quickly and threw it aside, where it ended up in my shed, never to be opened for years I found it a little while ago when going through the shed, and decided to give it a read If I didn t like it, I didn t [...]

    29. Kathryn says:

      Well, hum What an interesting book I enjoyed it enhanced, I think, by the audiobook narrator but I m also a bit puzzled over it First of all, I am surprised this is a book for children Not that there is anything horrendous or that adult in it, but it just doesn t seem like a book for kids Sure, Artemis is twelve, but a child protagonist does not a children s book make The style doesn t seem particularly kid friendly lots of big vocabulary, lots of changing around between scenes characters but th [...]
