Artemis Fowl | Eoin Colfer
163 posts | 306 read | 2 reading | 88 to read
Twelve-year-old Artemis is a millionaire, a genius-and above all, a criminal mastermind. But 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 the bedtime stories-they're dangerous!

chaoticgoodhufflepuff If you‘ve got the copy that has the code at the bottom of the pages, you should give decoding it a try. I still have my first copy I got when I was like 12 or 13. It‘s still got my chicken scratch in pencil along the bottom. 😂 5mo

The first time I read this was July 2005—when Number One Son was reading the series (2003-6). But, I didn't read it with him—I read it on his recommendation. When I saw that a movie would be coming out soon, I decided to reread. This time, I think I'll continue reading the series! Last week, we added several of the later installments to our personal library from Half Price Books, including one signed copy. Sadly, we haven't found the 1st book yet.

I am maybe a little bit #obsessed with this series. I looove the audiobooks narrated by Nathaniel Parker and have listened to all 8 of them at least 3 times. Still working on acquiring all the paperbacks!

1. Thin Mints. All of them.
2. The Fifth Element - it's wonderfully cheesy
3. I have no shame about listening to Artemis Fowl on audiobook for the 100th time.
4. Bubble bath + 🍺 + 📚
5. Did #4 on Wednesday, with the addition of a mermaid bath bomb!

My husband loved Artemis Fowl when he was a kid. So I decided to read them. I liked the story. Not my typical book, but it did get better near the end.

This was the only series that my brother (who did not like to read) actually finished. I can‘t help but think that he was driven to read because of the way Artemis had built up success and then handled his struggles.

Ehhh. Maybe it‘s just because I was on a lot of Percocet Thursday evening, but this didn‘t seem too interesting. 😝 #howjessreadsin2019

KathrynElise I loved this series when I was younger! Looking back on these books though, I think it would be difficult to enjoy them now... Very much targeted at a younger audience, and I think it would be difficult for a lot of adults to gain anything of value from them 🙃 8mo

I really wanted to read this before the movie came out. I enjoyed the story. I had no idea fairies were involved, which is ironic since much of my recent reading seems to be fairy heavy. My kids read a bunch in this series years ago. They told me back then that they were good. I kinda wish I had read them back then. Better late than never I suppose.

4⭐️

So happy I ended this tonight because the book ends on Christmas. I really enjoyed this book a lot. There were definitely subtle hints at environmental justice and concerns with capitalism. Even though the book is very much fantasy, I liked the cross over into sci-fi with the explanations behind the technology. My favorite character was definitely Butler and I really enjoy the development he was over the novel.

So our Christmas Eve dinner turned into a 2 hour wait for food and boxing up all the cold food for leftovers. But guess who wasn‘t complaining the entire time because they had their book in their purse and took advantage of this prime reading situation? 🙋‍♀️ it was me.

I am really liking this fast paced, action packed novel with fairies, centaurs and stopping time, bio bombs and what not. Books like these show how ones imagination can go a really long way. We all must have read books with fairies, goblins and trolls and this one too creates such a magical world which seems to be too far away from "the mud people" , that's what we- humans- are referred in this book as, yet we want to be a part of it.

If I'm being too harsh on this book, it's because I was led to believe I could enjoy it as an adult, like the Harry Potter or Percy Jackson books. This book was not on that level.

Mostly, I think, is that I didn't care for the author's sense of humor. One book on my TBR list was the not-Adams Hitchhiker's Guide book which I was persuaded to give a shot one day, but when I discovered Colfer was the writer of both that book as well... hard pass.
