Comments: A couple of years ago I read the first Artemis Fowl book and was not impressed at all. I've been told the books get better after the first so I thought I'd see for myself. I'm pleased to say that I did enjoy this book. Artemis is a much nicer person in this book who learns about friendship and respect. Artemis joins forces with the fairy people to first save them from a goblin takeover and second to try to rescue Artemis' father. I really enjoyed the world in which the fairies inhabit alongside the mundane world. This book read very much like a James Bond movie with non-stop spy adventures including such characters as centaurs, pixies, dwarfs, leprechauns, goblins. Hopefully the third book will be even better.


  1. I've really enjoyed the Artemis Fowl books. The Eternity Code is absolutely brilliant.
