Best Review Ever

best book ever
Teen, 14 years old Written byCP3bigplay December 31, 2009
The main character, Artemis Fowl II, is a criminal mastermind. There is also some fighting between the LEP and the Mud People. The author, Eoin Colfer, does a good job of keeping the language appropriate for readers of all ages, I think. When an LEP fairy "swares," he puts it in fairy language so we don't have any idea what it really means. The whole series is fun to read and I think anyone can read it starting around ages 8-10.

Pretty good

Im on book 4 of Artemis Fowl right now, and in my oppinion, The Eternity Code was actually one of the best. There is some violence like a sonic bomb, shooting (one man gets a critical wound) and stuff like that (oh yes, one mans thumb gets cut off bloodlessly), but not too bad.The words d**n, oh my God and he!! are used a couple times. The main character, Artemis Fowl, is a criminal and always has a sneaky plan up his sleeve, but starts becoming a better person after his adventures with the fairy People. A cast of likeable characters and great story and adventure make this a great read.

e.g. Perfect for kids 10 or 11 and up they will absolutely love

I personly like the series sometimes your children might run into some tough words but their easy to get in a snap. well its true Artemis isn't the best role model but you can find a different character for your role model like Holly Short, or Juliet Butler, Butler's little sister with the same dream that is following her brothers foot steps

New Great Book

I love it. All of the Artemis Fowl books (I haven't read all of them, but I have gotten through book 5) are interesting. My favorite part is when he explains the tiny computer -- I think it's a pretty cool design. Basically, what I am getting at is: read the books!

You must read this!

I have read almost all the book in the series and I have to this this is the most heart wrenching book I have ever read!The author brings you so much into the book that after a while its just like watch a movie! Mr.Colfer does a wonderful job describing objects, feelings, and situations, you feel like you've known Artemis your whole life! It just like a fiary tale but a little more violent and for kids about 9 and up, depending on the kid. Once you read the first one you'll be adiccited!

Great from beginning to end

Violent for a book in the age range...but excellent read! Suspenseful and emotional, and the action is consistent and non-stop. I say, this is a must read, as well as the rest of the Artemis Fowl books!

Good enough

Compared the the other books in the series, i'd say this one would be at the bottom of the list comparing the best one. I just think that what mostly kills its score is the pacing and characters. Half of the book is the beginning and a third is the middle and the last bit is the ending. But overall, Artemis Fowl, the anti-hero of the series, is becoming a better person, and the book is interesting enough with an appropiate ending.

Awesome Book

I picked this book up even though it was not first in series and was instantly hooked. Its clean except for 1 made up curse. Not a ton of violence but there is almost no gore.

Good,but some bad words

Artemis fowl is a GREAT book for kids fifth graders and up. Unfornately, there is some bad words like this made-up cuss word called "D,arvit". On the first Aetemis fowl book, it said that it was censcored. Other than that,its a really good book.

Artemis Fowl- Revealed Acuratly

This book wa reccommened to me by a friend and when I got it from thi library I couldn't stop listening! I love books on audio tape and cd, so I really enjoyed the british/american/irish/sctottish accents the narrrator put on. It was so much fun. Another thing is that in the review above, I do not feel that Artemis is be acuratly portrayed. One aspect that I particulary liked about the book series, was that Artemis eventually changed from being an evil criminal/genious, to a caring genious friend. It was a really nice and admirable change to see- in a cool, and very mysterious way!

One of the best books I have ever read!!!

I just have to say this is one of the best books I have ever read in my whole life. And that is saying a lot, because I must've read at least a couple thousand in my life. This book is hilarious, and has tons of action. At the end, it seems like there is no way for Artemis to win, but of course he always does. The characters fully developed, and although Artemis is a criminal, I guess you could say he's a criminal with a conscience. At the end of the series, you can''t even tell he's a criminal, except that he's so smart. This book has pretty advanced vocabulary, but not so much that you can't tell what they're talking about. Also, when the fairies swear they put it in fairy language so it's not really bad language because you don't really know what they're saying. I highly recommend this book!!!

Hilarious, with especially impressive characters.

By far one of my favorite Artemis Fowl books! Unfortunately, I've only read this one once, but I remember it clearly for it's humor and amazing plot. While it may be confusing for anyone who hasn't read the books before it, (equally amusing) the book is a welcome addition to the series. Spiro is among one of my favorite antagonists, and I am still hoping for an appearance in the eighth book! (I still chuckle whenever I remember his taunts towards Artemis's name.) However, as a devoted Artemis Fowl fan, I'm a bit confused as to how the action could be labeled "cartoony." The protagonists (whether human or fairy) are intelligent and inventive, thus their creation of sophisticated weapons. Foaly himself would probably prefer "innovative" or "visionary" than cartoony, but I might just be being a bit stingy with that.

One of my favorite books of all time!!!!!

What can I say? Everything about it is BRILLIANT. While Artemis is not the best role model, the whole series is about him turning into a good person under the positive influences of his family and Holly. It is so funny I just read it over and over. The ways Artemis solves all his problems are genius.
