Description - Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer

Twelve-year-old villain, Artemis Fowl, is the most ingenious criminal mastermind in history. His bold and daring plan is to hold a leprechaun to ransom. But he's taking on more than he bargained for when he kidnaps Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon (Lower Elements Police Reconnaissance Unit). For a start, leprechaun technology is more advanced than our own. Add to that the fact that Holly is a true heroine and that her senior officer Commander Root will stop at nothing to get her back and you've got the mother of all sieges brewing!

A twelve year old boy by the name of Artemis Fowl has a cunning plan to get 1 whole tonne of 24 carat gold. He holds an action fairy, Holly, hostage and threatens to tell the public about a ransom in the fairy world. The fairy Holly gets captured whilst trying to redeem her powers and is taken to the Fowl Manor. Artemis does not know where his father is and he is deeply concerned about his mother who keeps on pretending that he is always next to her in everything she does. But will Artemis and his loyal manservant succeed in retrieving the gold?

Book Review: Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer - Reviewed by (08 Jan 2010)

This book follows the story of Artemis Fowl, criminal mastermind, in his attempts to run the family business. The plans he comes up with to make money are ingenious and he is unbelievable at predicting the next move that will be made against him.

I love Eoin Colfer's writing style in the whole Artemis Fowl Series (6 books so far). His plays-on-words are amusing - Leprechauns aren't little green-wearing Irish men; they're actually members of the Lower Elements Police Reconnaissance Unit --> LEPrecon! The characters are very well-developed, but relationships definitely aren't the focus of the story.

Though the synopsis and the way it is marketed appears to be targeting younger boys, I think that this book, and its sequels, could be an enjoyable read for anyone, so long as you can get past the fart jokes!

Overall: I rate this book and all of its sequels at 4 stars out of 5. I recommend it to anyone looking for a light, extremely funny read.
