From a strikingly original voice in fiction comes the story of Artemis Fowl, a very unusual hero. Artemis combines the astuteness of Sherlock Holmes with the sangfroid of James Bond and the attitude of Attila the Hun. But even Artemis doesn't know what he's taken on when he kidnaps a fairy, Captain Holly Short of LEPrecon Unit. These aren't the fairies of bedtime stories. These fairies are armed and they're dangerous. Artemis thinks he's got them just where he wants them, but then they stop playing by the rules . . .
Full of unexpected twists and turns, ARTEMIS FOWL opens up a riveting world of magic, mystery, and humor.

I've been reading Artemis Fowl since it first came out, so I suppose you can say I grew up with Artemis. Even at age 16 I still love the series! Eoin Colfer's writing is wonderful, his characters lifelike, and his story engaging. I highly recomend the series. Espcially the audibooks narrated by Nathanial Parker. Great stuff. :3
Best series ever! Well at least for me...
When I was a kid I would always pass by this book everywhere and thought it was boring. I'm picky with my books and thought this book would be lame like any other book I read. BUT a few years later, in high school I started to read it and FELL IN LOVE with it!! The great thing is that it's not only for boys, abd it's not only for kids, my mom loved the series and the audio book is amazing, the voices are perfect. Eoin Colfer is my favorite author! Thanks! Just a few more days for the alantis complex to come out!!! I'm sooooo excited!
