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

If you like antagonists with a twist then you will love "Artemis Fowl." The stories are very technology driven, but they don't talk down to you at all which is great for technophobe's everywhere. The subtle way that Colfer draws fantasy and reality together so seamlessly is incredible. Not to mention the moral thread he has managed to tie in without beating you over the head with an Aesop's Moral of the Story sort of end. Definitely a book to take to your comfy chair, they will keep you entertained and interested the whole time.
