I've heard a lot about the Artemis Fowl books but didn't really know what they were about. So I found it very intriguing that we get the story from the point of view of the traditional "bad" side; the hero is a criminal mastermind (even though he is only 12 years old). And so I found myself rooting for both sides, hoping that they'd both win in some way. Good storytelling and exciting as well.

It was a very imaginative kids book, but I would not recomend it for anyone over the age of 12.

I had picked it up for my boys, but I am the one that got hooked. I had to get the rest of the series!

Twelve-year-old Artemis Fowl is the most ingenious criminal mastermind in history. With two trusty sidekicks in tow, he hatches a cunning plot to divest the fairyfolk of their pot of gold. Of course, he isn't foolish enough to believe in all that "gold at the end of the rainbow" nonsense. Rather, he knows that the only way to separate the little people from their stash is to kidnap one of them and wait for the ransom to arrive. But when the time comes to put his plan into action, he doesn't count on the appearance of the extrasmall, pointy-eared Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon (Lower Elements Police Reconnaisance) Unit--and her senior officer, Commander Root, a man (sorry, elf) who will stop at nothing to get her back

Seriously a lot of fun, older kids (contains very minor swearing) AND adults will love this one. I honestly don't know which it was intended for, but we all enjoyed it. If you liked the Lemony Snickett type stuff, you'll really like this.

I got this for my child, but ended up reading it myself and running out to get the rest of the series. This book is funny, engaging, occasionally a little bit crude (the better to win over its target audience) and completely un-put-downable. It is complex enough for adults to enjoy while still being approachable for tweens and young teens. Colfer does a great job of using humor to draw young readers into an intelligent book.
