The Arctic Incident (Artemis Fowl #2)
As Artemis rushes to his rescue, he is stopped by a familiar nemesis, Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon fairy police. But this time, instead of battling the fairies, he is going to have to join forces with them if he wants to save one of the few people in the world he loves.
I have to admit that the first book of the Artemis Fowl series didn't
impress me all that much. So I lagged behind in ordering the second book
from the library, but I finally did. This was my reaction through the
whole book: WOW, this is so much better than the first one! I don't
remember the specifics of Artemis Fowl book 1, so I can't say why
exactly I didn't like it.
This book was non-stop action from page
1. This book made me read late into the night, and I hated to put the
book down. I even took it on the treadmill with me. Besides the action,
another reason why I love this book is the characters. I liked everyone
in the book, but Holly Short was probably my favorite. She is one feisty
elf! She has a non-stop supply of witty comebacks and humor, and plus
she knows how to put people in their place (with the use of a fist). I'm
definitely drawn to the kick-ass girl type, evidenced by another one of
my favorite characters in Seeing Redd by Frank Beddor: Homburg Molly.
The writing of this book was superb. I love a book with plenty of humor,
and this one was stocked with it.
After finishing the book, I
was glad that I didn't give up after the first one, and I will continue
reading the series.
Yet another great piece of science fiction by Eoin.
This book accomplishes everything that all the other books do in the series.
With a new adventure, our favorite young genius is advancing quickly towards his goals, giving us another fun book.
recomended for young elementary.
Wow... coming from the first book(which was that great either) this one was kind of hard to read. Not only is it repetitive its not even as well-written as the first one. I find myself practically forcing myself to continue to read it in hopes of the next one to be much better. The story line is just so bland and nothing interesting happens. No plot twists or anything because Colfer basically tells you who is behind it all from the beginning.
Artemis is a 13-year old genius, and I love him and his adventures. However, this book wasn't as good as the others in the series, because it didn't use much of Artemis' brain. And I must tell you, Artemis' brain is very amusing, and his plans are so smart. Most of this book is physical, so Butler (Artemis' manservant) has a lot of parts. In the end, Artemis is trying to save his father, who he hasn't seen in so long, but his plan had a lot of variables, and his father's leg becomes broken, but Artemis is just glad to be with his father, Artemis Fowl Sr.
I didn't like this book as much as the others in this series, but I was happy for Artemis in this book because he learned how to be friendly, because Holly asks him for help with goblins. This book was appealing.
Artemis is back, more evil and diabolical than ever before. Or at least that's what the fairies think
When it's revealed that Mud People are trading good with the fairy people everyone suspects Artemis.
But they're wrong. Nervertheless they bring him on board to make sure. When he proves to be innocent they strike a deal.
Artemis will help catch the smuggler and the fairy people will help save his father. Sounds simple? Well, it isn't....
Another great Artemis adventure. The book is funny and entertaining. I can't wait to read the sixth book!
Artemis fowl has done it again. Since his father was kidnapped a few years ago, he realized that the only way to get them back, would be with magical cooperation. But, can he get any help, with an attack against the Fairy government, which he has to help stop before time runs out? Find out in this excellent sequel to the origional Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer!
