Praise
"The world that Colfer creates is as vivid and fantastical as any shire, Gotham, or galaxy far, far away in recent memory."
"Filled with puns, word plays, and inventive new concepts about the fairy realm, this mix of fantasy and science fiction will delight fans and make converts of new readers. An exhilarating Celtic caper that stands very nicely indeed on its own merits."
"A slow, hardware-heavy start thankfully segues into a convoluted adventure of international proportions, with enough races, chases, and near escapes to keep even the most action-addicted reader happy."
"In a nervy and unnerving marriage of style and substance, Colfer adopts the rhythms of macho banter from television police dramas, Hollywood espionage thrillers and B-grade buddy war films....Despite a brave and promising premise, ARTEMIS FOWL is charmless."

But why does someone of such brilliance dedicate himself to criminal activities? This is a question that can only be answered by one person. And he delights in not talking. Perhaps the best way to create an accurate picture of Artemis is to tell the by now famous account of his first villainous venture. I have put together this report from first-hand interviews with the victims, and as the tale unfolds you will realize that this was not easy. The story began several years ago at the dawn of the twenty-first century. Artemis Fowl had devised a plan to restore his family's fortune. A plan that could topple civilizations and plunge the planet into a cross-species war. He was twelve years old a the time...
