One thought on “Artemis Fowl Collection”

  1. I absolutely loved this series! The snark, humour, madcap adventure, fun plot and entertaining characters makes this collection an unforgeable YA fantasy series.Twelve-year-old Artemis Fowl is a millionaire, a genius—and, above all, a criminal mastermind. But even 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 bedtime stories—they're dangerous! Full of unexpected twists and turns, Artemis Fowl is a riveti [...]

  2. Fun teen book series. Easy to read and full of kid humor (all I can say about that is dwarf farts). Fun for pre-teens/teens and apparently mid-twenties too!

  3. This series is hands-down perfect for every sci-fi lovers who can't help but have a pinch for a tiny dash of romance.Eoin Colfer creates a well-rounded main character, who starts out as a typical fictional and young prodigy, cold, ruthless, and terribly intelligent, to a down-to-earth young man who gains wisdom and kindness. Other characters, such as the fiery Holly Short, enlightens the story into a suspenseful and ridiculously epic novel. Want a universe where anything can happen? Read Artemis [...]

  4. I read these books because of my kids and am glad I did. Artemis is one cool kid. Mulch Diggums is one of the best characters I've ever read about. I was laughing out loud during his performances. I highly recommend these books to everyone.

  5. I cannot wait to read the series with my children. My wife and I have already been practicing our Mulch Diggums quips.

  6. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE ARTEMIS FOWL! *SPOILER* The child prodigy, genius evil mastermind and his side kick, Butler, a weapons- and martial arts-master decide to kidnap a fairy to make money to help find Artemis's missing father, who disappeared and is assumed dead. No one really thinks fairies are real until Artemis proves himself right and catches one- a L.E.Pcon officer named Holly Short. (L.E.Pcon= humans idea of a leprechaun. They are really the Lower Elements Police Reconnaissance officers, but [...]

  7. Really good YA series. Each book follows a simple structure of catching up with where the characters are before introducing a problem, which of course only Artemis can help them solve, there is witty banter and the problem is solved. Over the series there is really good character development and relationship building. The final books kind of tease at facing bigger issues and expanding the world but don't quite manage to do it. They almost seem to become a bit more simplified, which is a bit disa [...]

  8. Sometimes it's fun to be the villain, and the Artemis Fowl series is an entertaining example of that. The mix of fantasy and high-tech gadgetry offer this series a unique universe, and Eoin Colfer's amazing world is filled with even more amazing characters. Artemis is probably one of my favorite characters in young adult fiction because of his evil genius and the fact that he grows throughout the series. Every adventure, every secondary character, and each book offer cool moments that had me smi [...]

  9. My personal rating is 2 stars; I give 3 stars for the kiddos' sakes.For the intended audience, I think it's a fairly decent series - a combination of fantasy and sci-fi with imaginative ideas. But it's not very challenging, and the plot becomes repetitive. I actually can't recall what happens from book to book without reading the descriptions because the plots didn't pull me in and I don't care about the characters too much. For kids, okay, but for adults, just read the first one and only contin [...]

  10. I have grown up with these books and will continue to read this series and anything else eoin colfer comes out with until there is no more

  11. These books are incredible. If you like fantasy, these books are for you. I absolutely love Eoin Colfer- and anyone who likes him should immediately read this.

  12. This series is excellent. I would definitely suggest it to those young enough to appreciate it; I believe this series withstands the test of time only with a healthy dose of nostalgia and some quiet sighs at flatulent jokes. That being said, the characters are always wonderful, even with Butler's overly macho one-liners and Mulch's crass humor. How can anyone not fall in love with Artemis' cold demeanor, or Holly's stubborn fire? And Foaly, with his tin foil hat? The series blends magic and scie [...]

  13. I found the first few books of the series, and bought them because I heard about its popularity and how it was supposed to be good. I gave it a go as I was bookless and needed something to read, so I picked up Artemis Fowl—and could NOT put it down! It hooked me in from the beginning to the end, and I ended up reading it in one sitting. Usually I wouldn't be up for the fantasy category, as I love sci-fi, but I realized through the coarse of all the books both elements are used. Just the idea o [...]

  14. ah what a throwback to actually good middle school fiction. I really enjoyed finishing this series (rereading the books I'd already read) straight through this time.I totally recommend this sci-fi, fairy/fantastical, semi-realistic, creative, intelligent series for any kid who feels smarter than their peers. I'm sure they can relate to Artemis, or at least learn from how Artemis is portrayed and grows as a character.(thinking of buying the whole series for my 10 year old sister)

  15. He is an evil genius teenager that those who like anti-hero, would like to read. Most things rather too fantasy although it take place in this very century. It's fun to follow how he will ingeniously outsmart the People.

  16. What an utterly fun read! I love the mix of technology and fantasy in the faerie realm Colfer has created. It is a new take on an old mythology into the new millennium. Plus, this series is intelligent and hilarious!

  17. A superb and whimsical laugh-out-loud series that engages and delights readers of all ages. A truly wondrous addition to the literary world!

  18. We listened to these on road trips pre-kids - we didn't want to stop driving. Highly recommend the audio, reader is amazing.

  19. The first book (of 8, somewhat baffling they had a seven book set but not the complete 8) was such magical smart aleck fun, I was disappointed the rest couldn't maintain the same level. Some episodes were far better than others, but even the less impressive entries kept me reading to the end. But then again, maybe if I were less drinking agey I would have loved it unconditionally and been more enchanted than critical? Oh to be young and rating-less again.

  20. A fun little read with some very interesting world-building, and Artemis is a pretty fun, snarky little character. It also takes the unique route of making the protagonists oppose each other (view spoiler)[(at least for the first few books) (hide spoiler)], which is fun. BooksArtemis Fowl 4 starsThe Arctic Incident 3 starsThe Eternity Code 4 starsThe Opal Deception 4 starsThe Lost Colony 3.5 starsThe Atlantis Complex 3 starsArtemis Fowl: The Time Paradox 4 stars(these ratings are fairly rough, s [...]

  21. An intriguing book for young adults. An eccentric mix of magic and highly advanced technology. It's about a teenage criminal mastermind who captures an elf and has a series of adventures where he undergoes many changes both physically, emotionally, psychologically. Artemis Fowl is a genius who is always two steps ahead of his opponent. Son of a rich Irish criminal, he knows how to turn every situation to his advantage. Holly short is an elf captured by Artemis. She's a part of the police task fo [...]

  22. Artemis ist der schlauste Mensch der Erde. Er ist skrupellos und tut alles um an seine Ziele zu kommen - dabei ist er gerade mal 12! Eines Tages erfährt er dass unter der Erde Wesen leben. Unter anderem Elfen, Feen und Zentauren. Schließlich fasst er einen Plan: eins von diesen Geschöpfe zu entführen, um an unermesslichen Reichtum zu kommen. Für die Untergrundbewohner ist Artemis gefährlich. Er ist fast so schlau wie die klügsten Köpfe dort. Von all dem weiß er noch nichts. Also hat Art [...]
