This book felt a little slow at the start and I was thinking that I liked this first book better. But midway through, it really picked up and the end had me excited and reading quickly.

The second book in the Artemis Fowl series, it was a quick read, very entertaining. The same characters that we saw in the first book, with a few new faces, and an entirely new evil plot by the now-13-year-old criminal mastermind. Very good for a quick and easy read.

This book was very good and the character Artemis is becoming more likable, if it's possible as he's trying to be a criminal mastermind. His connections with the fairies is definitely improving his demeanor and I'm looking forward to reading more books in the series.

Very engaging book. I was surprised how much I liked it, as an adult. The author spins a fun tale about a boy-genius who discovers the covert world of fairies and their police force.

This is Book 2 in Colfer's Artemis Fowl series - I read the first one, wasn't all that into it, but sort of wanted to like the series enough that I read this one too. Nope - still wasn't very into it.
In this one, the 13-year-old amoral genius Artemis Fowl gets a little bit less amoral, as he ventures to the radioactive (why?) Arctic to rescue his father, who's been kidnapped by the Russian "Mafiya." At the same time, the LEPrecon headquarters gets taken over by a traitor in their midst, and in order for them to both solve their problems, Artemis and the fairy Holly Short must team together - and even recruit a criminal dwarf to help out.
The book is, I believe, aimed at kids around 10-12 years old. It's a bit too simplistic for me, I can't get into the Fairy Police Force being exactly like a human police force, and the humor is rather crude (lots of fart jokes).
This may be other people's cup of tea... but not really mine.
