Artemis Fowl has just received an email. The email contains a picture of a man who just might possibly be his father, who’s been missing for two years. Just as Artemis heads off to Russia to find out more information, Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon unit hauls him in for questioning in relation to underground smuggling. Of course things get crazy from there.
I think I enjoyed this one even more than the first. These books are just a lot of fun, even to a 30-year-old woman. They would have been some of my favorites if they’d been around when I was a kid. I have to admit to giggling aloud even now. But aside from the wackiness of the story, I like seeing Artemis grow and learn about himself. He tries to be an elitist genius who looks down on everyone, but really he’s got a heart of gold underneath. I enjoy watching him learn that, sure, he might be a genius, but that doesn’t mean that everyone he meets can’t teach him something. What was great about this book was watching him get his hands dirty. I highly recommend these for kids, and for those who can still connect with their inner kid.
