A few things to say about this book. Things like Wow! The way Artemis catches a fairy and things like that. Eoin Coffer actually works it so you think your really there. This book teaches that even the most prepared plans can go wrong. Artemis Fowl is a 12-year old child and he has a higher intellect than a fully-grown adult. He is portrayed to the Fairies as cold and ruthless, but in reality, is merely trying to fulfill his family's goal as though he were the head of the house. This book is an entertaining, non-stop adventure, from a time-field, to a tunneling dwarf, to a huge lumbering troll, to a radioactive bio-bomb. This book must be covered in glue because you wont be able to put it down! Every seconds was breath taking and the idea about a secret society is almost as entertaining as the idea we are all in The Matrix. You will love this book. As you continue to read this series you will uncover more and more information about the Fairy society. You will also like this book if you like the Alex Rider series or the Eragon series. I give this book 5 stars out of 5. Absolutely fantastic!
