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.

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.

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.

Colfer makes this story completely his own! Artemis Fowl's unique idea of a kid genius hunting rogue fairies was one-hundred percent satisfying. This book was gripping from beginning to end -- a real page turner! Readers will be entertained by Artemis's uncanny genius and left wanting more. Artemis gets an A .

Story about a genius 10 year old boy (Artemis Fowl), faries he encounters, and the story that unfolds, complete with advanced technologies and weapons. There is a lot of action, and will be sure to pull you in. The five subsequent books continue to tell the story of Artemis and his new found friends and enemies.

It was so - undescribable! It had so much to figure out, mysterious parts, all coming to the tense ending. It was a bit complicated, all the more making it a good one to re-read. I can't wait to read the second one!

This is a really great book! Artemis is really interesting and he is beginning to show signs of being a good person. He is still is annoyingly intelligent, though. He has teamed up with Holly Short and Commander Julius Root to save his father from the Russian Mafia.

I really love this book. My friend recommended it to me and she loved it too. I have read the other books in the series and I love them too. The new book is coming out and I am going to buy it. Artemis Fowl is a good character and he becomes less self-centered as the books go on. I would recommend it to everyone.

This series is excellent. This book is about a greedy teenager genius, fairies, and a huge body protector named Butler. Artemis is a genius boy, and very exciting for anyone who understands hard physics.

I like this book a lot. It is more simular to the first one [Artemis Fowl] then the second [The Arctic Incident]. It is very adventurous and has a good plot. It really brings back Artemis's crimenal side and many of the great origenal charectors have returned. It again is full of humor, suspence and magic. And is a great end to the serries. [Sequel: The Arctic Incident]

I'm still in the middle of this book, but it's pretty good. I don't think I like it as much as the first two. If you haven't read the first two don't bother with this one. A few parts a bit predictable but over all it's pretty good. [Series: Artemis Fowl #3]

Artemis Fowl and the Eternity Code, by Eoin Colfer is a great book. It is a fantasy book. In this story, Artemis has constructed a very high tech computer, called the C-Cube, years ahead of any other human technology. He made a deal with a man named Jon Spiro, but Spiro steals the C-Cube and Artemis must get it back before it is too late. [Series: Artemis Fowl Book #3]

Artemis Fowl and the Artic Incident by Eoin Colfer is a great book. Artemis Fowl is a fantasy and adventure book. This adventure Artemis has to find his dad and save him before it's to late. That's only part of the book you will have to read the rest by yourself.[Series: Artemis Fowl #2]

I loved this book! It's the second adventure of Artemis Fowl, a 13-year-old criminal mastermind. Artemis is determined to find his father, held ransom in Russia for what seems like forever. With help from Holly Short, a fairy from the LEPrecon unit, and his bodyguard Butler, Artemis journeys to the Arctic Circle to find his dad. This was a really good fantasy.

I think this book was extremely well written. I generally enjoy books with fantasy creatures, and the Lower Elements creatures were fun to read about, especially since they're living during the present time. I think the second Fowl book is still as well written, but not as enjoyable as the first. The third book was, by far, my favorite, as the plot was complitcated and entertaining, and the suspence riviting.
