Artemis Fowl is a genius, millionaire and a criminal mastermind, and he is only twelve. As Artemis tries to get more money by kidnapping a fairy, Captain Holly Short of LEPrecon, he puts himself into something he never even imagined. Will he escape get what he wants?
A lot of people recommended Artemis Fowl to me. Artemis Fowl is one of those children's fantasy books that you have to read as a kid. I didn't read it as a kid, I read it as a teenager and I still enjoyed it. It reminded me a bit of Alex Rider. Yes, Alex Rider is quite different from Artemis Fowl but Artemis and Alex are both prodigies who using their skills to the full extent. Eoin Colfer's writing style reminded me of the style that the 39 Clues is written in. The style might be similar because both series are written for the same age group. Which causes me to regret the decisions I made as a 12-year-old. I would have enjoyed Artemis Fowl so much more if I had been younger when I read it. I would give it 3 stars.
