Artemis Fowl

Author: Eoin Colfer
Reviewer: Grade 8

Artemis Fowl is about a 12-year old genius criminal mastermind, not to mention a millionaire. But when his father goes missing, along with a big chunk of his fortune, Artemis decides that he has to do something about it like kidnap a fairy and hold it for ransom. Except this time, the fairies are real and, as Artemis discovers very quickly, it’s not a game.

I thought that Artemis Fowl was an excellent book. Its original plot keeps you spellbound throughout the entire book and makes it impossible to put down. Out of 10 stars, I’d give Artemis Fowl an 8.5.
