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. Download and start listening now!

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katina | 1/29/2014

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 J | 1/25/2014

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Annika Peter | 1/15/2013

    " 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. "

    " Eoin Colfer is a very, very funny guy. This is a great series, and well worth listening to, especially in a car full of boys. The criminal aspect of it may seem alarming, but give this book and series a shot. You'll be surprised how many moral issues are raised and answered. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Guy | 5/8/2011

    " 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. "
