9780141339399: Artemis Fowl

Join the world of Artemis Fowl, the number one bestseller by Eoin Colfer.

Rumour has it Artemis Fowl is responsible for every major crime of the new century.

Just twelve years old and already he's a criminal genius, plotting to restore his family's fortune with a spot of corruption and kidnapping.

Kidnapping a fairy for ransom, to be precise.

Artemis Fowl has discovered a world below ground of armed and dangerous - and extremely high-tech - fairies. But he may have underestimated their powers. They will fight back. Is the boy about to trigger a cross-species war?

Let the misadventure begin.

Product Description:

Twelve-year-old villain, Artemis Fowl, is the most ingenious criminal mastermind in history. His bold and daring plan is to hold a leprechaun to ransom. But he's taking on more than he bargained for when he kidnaps Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon (Lower Elements Police Reconnaissance Unit). For a start, leprechaun technology is more advanced than our own. Add to that the fact that Holly is a true heroine and that her senior officer Commander Root will stop at nothing to get her back and you've got the mother of all sieges brewing!

Review:

Eion Colfer, author of Artemis Fowl, describes his creation as " Die Hard with Fairies". He's not far wrong.

Artemis Fowl is the most ingenious criminal mastermind in history, and with his trusty sidekicks Butler and Juliet he hatches a cunning plot to divest the fairies of their pot of gold. Of course, he isn't foolish enough to believe in all that end-of-the-rainbow nonsense. Rather, he knows that the only way to separate the little people from their stash is to kidnap one of them and wait for the ransom to arrive. But when the time comes to put his plan into action he fails to consider Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon (Lower Elements Police Reconnaisance) Unit--a sort of extra-small Clarice Starling with pointy ears and wings--and her senior officer Commander Root--a man (sorry, elf) who will stop at nothing to get her back.

Fantastic stuff from beginning to end, Artemis Fowl is a rip-roaring, 21st-century romp of the highest order. The author has let his imagination run riot by combining folklore, fantasy and a fistful of high-tech funk in an outrageously devilish book that could well do for fairies what Harry Potter has done for wizardry. But be warned: this is no gentle frolic, so don't be fooled by the fairy subject matter. Instead what we have here is well-written, sophisticated, rough 'n' tumble storytelling with enough high-octane attitude to make it a seriously cool tale for anyone over the age of 10, brought to life on this cleverly abridged audio cassette by the lilting tones of actor Adrian Dunbar. --Susan Harrison
