Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer
I love this book! I bought it a long time ago on Audible and I’ve listened to it numerous times. I re-listened to it just recently and enjoyed it all over again.
This book is geared towards a young adult audience. It follows the life of a young criminal mastermind named Artemis Fowl. It is the first in a series of books about the young mastermind.
Artemis Fowl is a young man with a goal. To steal gold from the fairy folk. Yes, fairies are real. And Artemis has caught one. A Leprechaun. But what is a Leprechaun? It’s not quite what you think. Eoin Colfer has put a fun twist on the fairy realm; and once Artemis has found out about the world of fairies, chaos is about to ensue.
Now in all fairness I do have to say that some people have said that they had a difficult time getting into this book. I didn’t really have that problem, I was interested from the beginning and enjoyed all of it.
The fireball throwing goblins, the flatulent dwarves, the sassy elves, the un-flappable Butler, and the young genius pulling the strings on all of them. What’s not to like?
Now I did listen to the book and I really liked the narrator: Nathaniel Parker. If you choose to listen to it, you’re in for a treat. (I especially like how he does the voice of Butler.)
I’ll leave it to you to read and find out if Artemis succeeds in his goal. Seriously, read this book!
