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 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.
