This is a great book. Artemis’s father was in a plane filled with 250,000 bottles of when it blew up it was quite expensive and now the Fowl family are not in the billionare status. So Artemis hatches a scheme to kidnap and hold for ransom a fairy. He gets his hands on a copy of the People’s holy bible, the Book. It states that to renew his or her magic a fairy must take an acorn from an anchient oak by a bend in a river and replant it somewhere else. Artemis stakes out an oak and kidnaps Holly Short LEPrecon officer. He is willing to trade her for a ton of unmarked 24 carat gold bars. This is an epic start to a so far 7 book series.

Pardon me, but to quote another book-list-maker on this site: "...but dang it, Artemis Fowl is too awesome to be ignored." I salute you.

The first book in the Artemis Fowl series, this YA novel follows the adventures of Artemis Fowl, a twelve-year-old criminal mastermind, as he kidnaps a fairy, Cpt. Holly Short (part of the fairy police) for a large ransom of gold. He needs the gold to replenish the family fortune (which was depleted by his criminal mastermind father). Frankly I found this book a disappointment—though I am usually a fan of fantasy. I found that the characters were not well written and I found that it was difficult to enjoy or care about any of them—particularly Artemis. He really had few redeeming characteristics. 1 star out of 5.
