Twelve-year-old Artemis is a millionaire, a genius-and above all, a criminal mastermind. But Artemis doesn't know what he's taken on when he kidnaps a fairy, Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon Unit. These aren't the fairies of the bedtime stories-they're dangerous!
This book is well written and interesting. Good for people who like magic fantasy type books
THIS BOOK MADE MEEE WANNA DAB IT OUT M8 (also they should really have dab emojicons)
Don't make the mistake
To think that this a "kid's lit" book. Genre tagging can be very misleading and can result in missing out on some fun reading.
Cofer has quite an interesting character in Artemis Fowl and the storyline is downright fun to follow. Yes, it is a fantasy, but one with a bite. I found it a fun read and I'm well past being a kid, well past being a kid in a second childhood.
The story is well written, the characters, in their own way "believable" as those in any fantasy have to be, regardless of the reader target age.
If you enjoy now and again, a light read, you can't go wrong with this series.

Love the whole series but they aren't as good as this one. This one book tops Harry Potter. The one downside is that everything went by so fast but other then that it just was a great book.

Artemis is much cooler than Percy Jackson, Harry Potter, or anyone else you can name. :-)
