She was right.
Artemis is a boy genius turned criminal mastermind who goes on a quest to steal fairy gold from beneath the soil of Ireland. And it's one of the funniest books I've read in a long time. Snappy humor and sarcastic remarks from several of the characters had me laughing out loud on the train like a crazy person. It's a quick read, something you could get through in an afternoon if you had nothing going on.
Perhaps the best thing about Artemis Fowl is that it's fantasy for the masses. Yes, it has faries, goblins, and centaurs, but it also has your typical Hollywood fare of bodyguards, big guns, and kidnapping. It's an excellent choice if you're persuading someone to try a fantasy novel for the first time.
The only downside is the occasional lack of description, but in the grand scheme of the book it's very minor.
Overall, Artemis Fowl is hilarious and entertaining. Check it out.
Artemis Fowl- This book couldn't have been better. It action packed the plot is orginal and the characters are well devolped (if not likable all the time). I won't explain the plot too you because you can check it out on this website but this book maybe one of my books of all time.
Five stars out of five stars.
Artemis Fowl:The Artic Incident- I was very dissapionted in this sequel because it was confusing and very badly written. And plus Folw acted like a wimp in this book and there was hardly any adventure in the book to keep you entertained!! Two Stars out of five stars.
Artemis Fowl: The Etirnety Code- An improvment over the second book with a villian that acutually acts like a villian. The Plot is interesting and Artemis actually becomes a hero in the process. The o nly bad part about this book was teh ending. Colfer seemed to give up and come up with a totally unnessacary ending that spoils everything! But overall it was a cool book with an excellent plot. Four and a half stars out of five stars.
Artemis Fowl: The Opal Deception- Mix the second book with the third book and thats what you get with this artemis fowl book. An exicting sequel and its great fun but it stretches a bit and gets very long (even though its only 3oo and something pages). And also, if I might add, the title dosen't make much sense to the story. Four stars out of five stars.
Artemis Fowl: The Lost Colony- a good, exicting book but its all so different from the other books in series. Its all about Demons (which is very disturbing to read about) ands thats there are kind demons are out there. I found that truly offensive but the rest of the book is greaat fun. Because of the Demon stuff I have to rate this book three stars out of five stars.
Having just completed the final book in the series, I have to admit it was a fun series of stories to read. I decided to pick up the first book after my 10 year old son read and enjoyed them all. I compliment Colfer on his fun imagination and storytelling. Initially I thought the first book dragged a little bit, but by the middle of the second book I was having a lot of fun turning the pages to see what the little evil Artemis might come upon next in his adventures.
This was one of those kinds of series that is relatively easy to get into and requires little brain power or analysis, and, while I read them over the course of a month, the books are easy reading and can be read in pretty short order. The stories are just plain old-fashioned entertainment, guaranteed to allow the reader an escape from the world's realities for at least a short time while tuned into the (mis)adventures of Artemis Fowl. And sometimes most of us could use a chance to escape reality for at least a short time.
My son was about 8 years old when we started on the first book. Over time, I read the entire series aloud to him for fun. We looked at it as light reading that both Mom and kid could enjoy and thoroughly loved every one of the books for all the crazy antics and funny characters. I liked the fact that this is a book about a SMART KID whose intelligence is a major asset to him and he is recognized by the other characters for it. These are not classroom classics, but are written in intelligent language that challenges young kids while getting them reading. My son is now 14 and wants to read the latest book. We'll see if it still holds his attention, but I'm game! Eoin Colfer is different from your average pre-teen writers and the kids love him for it.
