But there is still much unfinished business: Artemis Fowl Sr. disappeared when a daring escapade designed to free his family from their criminal--not to mention deeply lucrative--past and move the family's assets into legitimate enterprises went horribly wrong. Held captive by the Mafiya (the Russian organized crime syndicate) for over two years, he has been declared officially dead, but Artemis Jr. knows in his heart (yes, he does have one) that his beloved father is still alive, and he is determined to find him. Meanwhile Captain Short is temporarily on assignment to Customs and Excise as punishment for letting Fowl separate her and her People from their gold and is finding her stakeout duties a little dull. It soon becomes obvious that the pair have need of each other's considerable skills, and before long they are on track for an adventure that will ultimately have far-reaching consequences for both of them.
If you enjoyed the first book, you won't be disappointed by the second. Initially the pace is a little slower, and the slightly more mellow Artemis is certainly a tad unnerving at first (particularly as one of the things that made him such an unusual character was the fact that there was something distinctly unlikable about him), but once the sparks between Holly and Artemis begin to fly, and the adventure that tests their endurance to their emotional, physical, and intellectual limits begins, the pages just keep on turning.
The high-tech hocus pocus, the complex underworld, and the James Bond-style storyline will keep even the most reluctant reader enthralled. Add to the mix a fair dollop of humor, the occasional sprinkling of right-on commentary about the state of the planet, and enough hooks in the story to ensure you will be clamoring for the next book. This chilling, thrilling adventure is a seriously cool (in more ways than one!) must-read for anyone age 9 and older. --Susan Harrison --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

For those who never heard of Artemis Fowl, you've been missing out. Look up the books for a more detailed review. The first book in the series is titled simply Artemis Fowl. The publishers just reprinted the books with new covers, so they should be easy to find. It's a great series.

I really like the way the plot is adapted into a graphic novel but... I'm not sure I like the art. I mean, sometimes I have the feeling that the faces are too angular and you know, being an avid manga reader, I think that the eyes are too small and I can't read any emotion in them.
In addition, I don't like the colors. Really, when I first read Artemis Fowl, in my mind the setting was bright and very emerald green. Here you have a sort of green-bluish for all the panels set in the underworld; purple for those dedicated to Opal; brownish for those set at school or in Paris; while the ones in Russia are bluish.
Guys, life's already dark by itself, use some colors!!
Will I read the third one? Well, it depends if I can find a cheap copy!
This is not even remotely what I wanted, I dont like burning money.
Orte werden durch bestimmte Farbschema charakterisiert
Die Geschichte wird flüssig erzält
Ich weiss nicht, inwieweit die Umsetzung dem Buch treu ist. Zweifellos wird einiges stark vereinfacht sein und damit im Comic viel offensichtlicher dargestellt, wo es im Buch subtiler ist
Much of the novel is set in freezing cold north pole territory and the graphic novel adaptation captures the atmosphere perfectly. It moves along very quickly, cutting between Russia and the Lower Elements, and developing both plots simultaneously. It's still early days so Arty's sort-of romance with Holly isn't quite apparent yet, but their animosity is gradually turning to friendship. The paneling and artwork is perfect, and the humor and warmth between the characters translates flawlessly to this graphic incarnation.
A must-buy for Artemis Fowl fans.
