    2. 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 n [...]

    3. Want to meet the guy who's smart enough to take over the world? Well he's twelve years old. And his name is Artemis Fowl. I have two words for this book: GREAT FUN. If you are at all young at heart or you just want to read something different from your usual fare, then check out this book. Artemis will keep you entertained with his hijinks. At the age of 12, Artemis is keeping his family afloat as they suffer from grief at the disappearance of Artemis Fowl, Sr, his father. His mother has retreat [...]

    4. 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, [...]

    5. 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 more, 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 wa [...]

    7. 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 defini [...]

    8. 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 [...]

    9. 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 more 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 t [...]

    10. 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 teena [...]

    11. "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 [...]

    12. 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 [...]

    13. 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 more impressed, but it’s a [...]

    14. বয়স সবে ১২! কিন্তু এরই মাঝে অপরাধ জগতের এক বিস্ময় ছেলেটা। হবে না-ই বা কেন? এটাই যে তার পরিবারের ঐতিহ্য। ফাউল পরিবার অপরাধ জগতের রুই-কাতলা পরিবার। কিন্তু কালের বিবর্তনে বিপুল সম্পত্তির উল্লেখ [...]

    15. 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 t [...]

    16. 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. [...]

    17. 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 [...]

    18. 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 u [...]

    19. 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 [...]

    20. 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. Una lectura ligera y entretenida. El sentido del humor de Colfer me resultó similar al de Terry Pratchett (salvando las distancias, claro; Terry es único) y el hecho de que el protagonista fuera un villano me gustó mucho.(Reseña pendiente)

    22. I enjoyed this more 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 more 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

    23. 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. :)

    24. 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 sé, habrá que ver en el próximo. Igual me gusto, me desarrollaré más en la reseña al libro.

    25. 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 sa [...]

    26. 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 [...]

    27. "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, [...]

    28. 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/charac [...]

    29. About aforesaid twelve-year-old criminal mastermind and his attempts to restore the faltering Fowl fortunes by swindling fairies. When we begin, Artemis’s father is missing and his mother nearly insane. Artemis and his bodyguard, Butler, discover the existence of the technologically advanced fairy civilization hidden away in the core of the earth, and Artemis determines to capture an elf for ransom. He ends up with Holly Short, a fairy and LEPrecon (occupation, not species – Lower Elements P [...]
