Book Review: Artemis Fowl

So I finally read ARTEMIS FOWL by Eoin Colfer. It's a middle grade book, but that's most of the fun. It was a fast-paced, funny read. Artemis Fowl is a ruthless child, raised in a wealthy family, who thinks he's entitled to everything. With the help of Butler, he learns the secrets of the fairy world and thinks he can outwit the "good folk". It jumped from his POV to Holly's, to Foaly (a centaur who works at the base of the LEP).

If you're looking for a fun, easy, quick read. Check out this series.


Synopsis:

Artemis Fowl, a charming but villainous twelve-year-old, takes on the dangerous world of Fairy People in this unforgettable story. In this extraordinary adventure, Artemis kidnaps a fairy, Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon unit, to help him decode the fairys magic book, which will lead him to a vast treasure of gold. But these are not the fairies of bedtime stories. They're cunning and dangerous! Full of unexpected twists and turns, Artemis Fowl opens up a riveting world of fantasy and mystery where anything, literally, is possible.


And check out the new cover. The entire series was recently re-jacketed.
