Review: Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer

Artemis Fowl Description:

Artemis Fowl should never have kidnapped the fairy. Instead of a pleasant little bedtime story creature, this sprite turned out to be an unholy terror. All of Artemis's genius for crime was challenged by this irritating hazel-eyed little elf. It requires the entire novel to get things back under control.


It’s the 10th Anniversary release of Artemis Fowl and the book shows it’s age, but just a little. The technology referenced throughout the book, at least that which is actually manufactured is a little outdated, but the story, wow, it captivated me from the introduction through the epilogue.

I found myself approaching this book with a comparison to the Percy Jackson series in the back of my mind. And boy was I wrong to do that. In no way do they compare to each other. They each hold their own.

One thing I found incredibly refreshing about Artemis Fowl, is that his a villain, a 12 year-old genius of a villain. He remains true to who he is, while still caring for his family and friends/servants Butler and Juliet. I enjoyed Colfer’s take on faeries and other otherworld characters.

This is a fantastic book and can’t wait to read more!

5 Stars: Will read more books by this author/in this series.

Many Adventures,
