This is the story of Artemis Fowl, a 12-year-old criminal mastermind who decides he wants a pile of fairy gold. What is he willing to do to get it?
I truly enjoyed this book. Artemis is a genius, but we also get to watch him grow up (and loosen up) a little as the book progresses. Just when you start to forget that Artemis is only twelve, a scene comes along that shows how vulnerable he still is.
The plot was smart, funny, and well-written. The fairies were not your typical airy fairies. They could kick some serious butt.
I would recommend this to anyone, young or old, who appreciates a good story.
