Click here to see the rest of this review The book begins under the premise of crime family making millions of dollars and the father goes missing. Artemisthe son, launches on a quest for his father. He then encounters the world of the supernatural.
This is the first instalment of the Artemis Fowl series, which continues to grow in success as well as its number of books. With his manservant, bodyguard and all round unstoppable man mountain, Butler, Artemis proceeds in his plan to replenish the family coffers with gold…lots of it.
But this is no ordinary gold he has set his sights on, this is Fairy Gold, but then Artemis is no ordinary 12 year old. Holly Short is a female officer in the LEP fairy police and as such is considered expendable by some of her senior officers, but thankfully not all of them.
There is amazing technology used on both sides, the fairies comes courtesy of the resident Centaur, Foaly, who is as adept at crushing one-liners as he is at iris eye cameras and lava lifts.
Along with the impressive technology are big, smelly Trolls and Tunnel Dwarfs that can dig at an amazing rate by unhinging their jaws and literally eating the soil as they burrow — no guesses where the soil has to exit!
Artemis is a supremely intelligent child that considers any signs of humility as weakness; however, he is not quite yet the hardened criminal his father was before him so remains a likeable and not completely ruthless character.
Holly Short is a LEPrechaun officer and as such has had years of intense and specialised training, so she should stop getting everything wrong at sometime, right? This book is hugely enjoyable and has just the right mix of fantasy, humour, gadgets and thrills to keep even the most demanding of children entertained.
Eoin Colfer has done his homework and knows exactly what his readers are looking for. I really enjoyed my time with this book, and if you liked Harry Potter then I bet you will like Artemis Fowl too.
The fun with this book is watching Artemis Fowl and the fairies trying to outwit each other, starting off with a reasonably mild plan but raising the stakes with each manoeuvre.
It is a big game to Artemis, and he takes pride in being three or more steps ahead at every turn, but he is fallible, assuming that his quarry will play by their well documented rules. The characters construction in this book is interesting. Ambition, greed, resourcefulness, honour, etc.
I think it works, especially given the target audience, but I would expect to see the later books flesh out these characters with a bit of complexity. Part standard third person storytelling, part autobiography, part case file.
In summary, Artemis Fowl is fun and easy to read with charming characters and an interesting battle of wits. A fast paced light read about a boy genius trying to steal some fairy gold. My interest is piqued and I will definitely be reading more.
