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!!!
