Publisher Description

From a strikingly original voice in fiction comes the story of Artemis Fowl, a very unusual hero. Artemis combines the astuteness of Sherlock Holmes with the sangfroid of James Bond and the attitude of Attila the Hun. But even Artemis doesn't know what he's taken on when he kidnaps a fairy, Captain Holly Short of LEPrecon Unit. These aren't the fairies of bedtime stories. These fairies are armed and they're dangerous. Artemis thinks he's got them just where he wants them, but then they stop playing by the rules . . .

Full of unexpected twists and turns, ARTEMIS FOWL opens up a riveting world of magic, mystery, and humor.

Quotes

  • A new thriller fairy tale will grab your interest, no matter what your age.

    - New York Post
  • “Into this world of adventure, corruption, and extraordinary technology comes narrator Nathaniel Parker, who has a distinct voice for everyone…Parker creates a complete pantheon of accents and pacing to complement Colfer’s worlds…encouraging the listener to suspend disbelief and become completely immersed in the escapades, often laced with humor…Parker’s splendid narration should lead to family listening that might just encourage discussion of truth, friendship, and loyalty. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”

  • “Billionaires are not to be trusted and they deserve to have every obstacle in the world thrown at them. That reality is one of the many things that makes Artemis Fowl a much more thoughtful novel than it appears to be when taken purely at face value.”

    " One of the things I love about fantasy novels is their ability to draw you into a new world...this book didn't do that for me. I didn't love the characters...except for the fairies. I liked them. The humans in this story were completely annoying. I don't think I would recommend this book to anyone. Not because it was bad, but because it just wasn't any good. "

    " I found this book to be heavy-handed and the characters highly underdeveloped. The end of the book is confusing. If you want a kids' series that involves a magical world, the Harry Potter and the Golden Compass series are a thousand times better. "

    " It's kinda cool but kinda lame.. I can't stop comparing to Harry Potter and Harry wins by a longshot.The main character is way to smart and annoying. The story is I guess ok but nothing much.. all in all an ok read but I wouldn't go as far as recommending it. "
