Review written by Carly, Age 12, Grade 6. Date of review: October 2008.
Review: The book I reviewed was Artemis Fowl. This book was written by an amazing author Eion Colfer. This book is the first in this amazing series.
Do you like dangerous adventures, critical thinking involved with your reading? Then the book Artemis Fowl is the book for you. The book Artemis Fowl takes place in a magical land we know as Ireland. The main character is a boy genius at twelve years of age, the one and only Artemis Fowl. His family has an awkward reputation; let’s just say they have a background of thievery. Artemis and his butler try to steal something very valuable from the Fairy Folk, their gold. These fairies are not the ones you usually hear about. They are armed and dangerous. One thing leads to another and the situation goes from bad to worse.
I really enjoyed this book; it keeps you on your toes with twist and turns every chapter. For example in one chapter there is a peaceful evening for a very unlucky fairy. Her name is Holly, she is performing a ritual to get some more magic. Then suddenly she is shot with a tranquilizer and captured by Artemis. I believe people with the love of excitement, adventure, and being on the edge should read this amazing book.
This book is a very fictional adventure. This book is suggested to anyone of all ages.
