This stems from his family, who have been criminals for generations. Following his father's presumed death at the hands of the Russian Mafia, and his mother's subsequent descent into madness, Artemis stopped attending his boarding school, assumed control of the Fowl criminal empire and embarked on a crime spree to restore the family fortune and fund Arctic expeditions to rescue his father.
He fends off the retrieval attempts of Commander Root and his team of technologically advanced fairies. Both sides scheme against the other and face the unexpected in this hostage situation.
The Blurb I wanted to give this classic series a try. I really wanted to like it. Child mastermind, an antihero dabbling in the wrong side of the law in a nonviolent wayand a fringe element of our-world-meets-magic? Finishing this book was a chore—one I dutifully performed for the sake of this review.
Since Artemis Fowl was first published inpublishers have granted it several reprints and new covers that will certainly catch the eye and interest of young readers.
Plus, talk of a movie adaptation is circulating has been for years, but it may come to fruition at some point. All that to say that young readers today may still desire to check out the Artemis Fowl series.
But to get to the point: Artemis Fowl may be from a criminal family. He may be a billionaire.
He may be a genius equivalent to Sherlock Holmes and Prof. But he is still a year-old. His year-old-ness combined with all that I just listed was one of the main reasons I was interested in picking up this series. But Artemis Fowl is not written like a year-old. He is too adult, too on top of everything, too balanced, too unbelievable.
It was very disappointing. Also, he is barely present in this novel that bears his name as a title.
I doubt children would be. For another thing, the reader is never given a reason to root for him. Artemis is completely unsympathetic. My second critique of the book is about the writing. The book was really about their handling of a hostage situation.
And I just did not care. Bottom line is there are plenty of things to complain about in the novel and nothing commendable. No positive themes, no interesting characters, no thought-provoking content, not even a fun plot!
Even though I was literally setting a timer and forcing myself to read often slamming the book shut mid-chapter when the timer went offit is not inconceivable that some child somewhere could be somewhat entertained by Artemis Fowl.
Time-passing entertainment aside, the book is just not worth reading. All that being said, the novel has seven sequels, a few tangential books, a movie adaptation in the worksand several reprints.
I have no idea. If you want my opinion, though… Read Percy Jackson.The Gnommish Alphabet from Eoin Colfer's ARTEMIS FOWL -- If you want to try writing this remember, write in a spiral.
