Action! Action! Action! That's the name of the game in Eoin Colfer's The Arctic Incident.

Child prodigy and criminal mastermind, Artemis Fowl is searching for his kidnapped father. He needs the help of the fairy police, and as it so happens, they need him. Law and lawbreakers work together in this fast-paced, humorous action-fantasy.

Eoin Colfer has created fun fairyland for the 21st century. It's a nice, soft blend of technology and fantasy, not too heavy on either count. The scope of his world
The Artemis Fowl books really are perfect for a quick, easy read. Which is good, because I'll be doing the twenty-four hour readathon tomorrow, and I really don't want to get burnt out on reading!

The Arctic Incident develops Artemis as a more sympathetic figure, having left behind his attempts to exploit the People (the fairies), and feeling some remorse over how he handled things in the first book. He's also focused on rescuing his father, missing for two years, convinced he's still alive. Mean

For me, as an adult, the Artemis Fowl series is a guilty pleasure.

I get a kick out of Artemis, smart beyond reason youth he is, and like the relationship between him and his bodyguard, Butler.

Throw in the fantastical underworld of fairies, dwarfs, and other magical creatures and there are a lot of options for a fast-paced, fun story.

In the second installment, Artemis finds himself in boarding school now that his mother has recovered and begun to assert rules on the boy.

Not to be stopped, Artemis

There's nothing that attracts me more, than a genius without the glasses. Especially if the geek looks like this

(For those who don't know this hottie, he's Chuck/Zachary Levi) However, if the geek involved is 13 years old and is a criminal mastermind, plus fantasizing that he would grow up faster than a normal human being would, well thats just plain pedophilia. :))

Well it's not actually that bad, if you'll become an instant billionaire and with him you could rule the world together. But still
My second foray into the world of Artemis Fowl was another quick, fun adventure. This book is a true sequel to the first with the continuation of the story arc of Artemis' lost father. Once again this ends up involving the fairy world including Artemis and Butler's first trip down below.

Engaging from the first page this book has a great pace that kept me turning (or should I say clicking) through the pages. I like the way that Colfer doesn't talk down to his readers. This is a children's book bu

Re-reading Artemis Fowl and the Arctic Incident was once again fantastic! This shouldn't come as a surprise but Eoin Colfer manages to enthrall me again and again with his books, no matter how many times I have read them.

With re-reading this book, I have noticed a few things, actually. I noticed that Artemis definitely has a slightly more softer side. I'm not sure if this is just me, but it's what I think. He's more humane in this book for sure, with wanting to rescue his father and building fri

Eoin Colfer has done it again. I loved the sequel to Artemis Fowl. How could I not, being a combinations of things that fascinate me: Russia, antiheroes, faery, and cold environments (arctic/North Pole). Yes I was very much enjoying this book.

The action is great, tempered with the laugh out loud humor. Artemis is up to his usual machinations, and exhibiting his snarky sense of humor, often at the expense of elder authority figures. I don't normally like precocious, know-it-all kids, but somethin
So i started this series with one thought in mind: a 12-year-old as a master of crime? interesting.

i liked book 1, but this second book is even better.

So Artemis Fowl is cold and hardened on book 1, but it was good to see him in a different light on this sequel.

He never gave up that his father is still alive. He and Butler keep on searching and searching. at last, a sliver of a clue came to them. or rather, a ransom video. it may terrify any kid, but not Artemis Fowl. he was giddy, for this vide

In accordance with the FTC, I would like to disclose that I purchased this book. The opinions expressed are mine and no monetary compensation was offered to me by the author or publisher.

When Haven, the underground world of the fairies, is threatened and there is sign of human involvement, the LEP (Lower Elements Police) point fingers at the one human who keeps the knowledge of their existence: Artemis Fowl, a thirteen year old criminal genius.

Artemis has his own agenda

And this was SO MUCH BETTER THAN THE FIRST BOOK! I'm glad Artemis is finally friends with the faeries!

Since I liked book 1 so much I thought I'd try book 2. Since Artemis is no longer the villain its remarkably different: someone else is causing trouble but he still has his own plan separate from Holly, who is still the actual hero of this story. There weren't quite so many scheme battles as before and the plot is less straight forward, however it is more complex and builds upon the first book. It has the same humor and development and was fun to read.

I really wish I could have enjoyed this book more. As with the first book in the series, my sister and husband both loved it, but I could not really get into it. It was maybe a three star read for me but am bumping it up half a star because I do feel that part of my trouble is because I listened to the audiobook and I think perhaps the short episodic format of the chapters (jumping between scenes and characters often) didn't work especially well with my relatively short commutes--I kept
This was a disappointing sequel. It just lacks the compelling conflict of the first book. Back then you didn't know who to root for! It was thrilling to see Artemis as both villain and champion of humanity, a cold-blooded swindler and yet also a young boy outsmarting mythical creatures to save his family. But in this book, humans and fairies suddenly team up in a very contrived manner against B movie villains. Boring.

I am loving Artemis Foul. Turns out, I am particularly fond of authors who write conflicted main characters (like Nicholas in Bartemeous). Artemis is hard to love, but he is surrounded by great characters who make up lovely, compelling stories. The one downside of this series, I fear, is that in twenty years it will be dated. Technology makes for fascinating reading, but unlike mythical worlds that never grow old, the real world changes around us quickly. My children will be ready for this serie ...more

Eoin Colfer's book artemis fowl. I highly recommend this book if you are into reading any type of crime series or enjoy to read about a young mastermind. This book in particular is the follow up of the first book in the Artemis Fowl series and is about how a young criminal mastermind is trying to get his father back after restoring his family name to one of the most powerful families in Great Britain, he figures out that it is not just money that he desires and wants to have his father back.

Artemis has Holly Short and Captain Root, his fairy friends, and Butler, his giant bodyguard help him on the rescue.

Like the other Artemis Fowl books that I have read, I chose this book because I had liked the last book so I thought "Why not?" and chose it. This book like many books before was very interesting and the way the author wrote it left a lot of cliff hangers which made me really want to continue to read on. In this book, one thing that impressed me the most was how Eoin Colfer made each chapter so intersting that I got hooked and couldn't stop reading and when I had to stop, it was hard for me to ...more

These are simply fun books. I remember picking up Harry Potter back in college and flying through the series, eagerly waiting for the next one to come out. They were addicting brain candy and I've always enjoyed looking for character driven series in the same vein since then. First came Riordan's books (read!) and then I stumbled upon Eoin Colfer.

The Artic Incident is the second book in the series. It's not a series in the conventional sense when compared to HP and Rick Riordan in that reading

When I was a child I watched a movie called Richie Rich. He was the richest boy in the world but his parents were always busy working so even though he was rich he didn’t have everything. He always wanted to be a normal boy but his parents were always trying to get him to inherit the family business. Richie Rich is like in Artemis Fowl the Arctic Incident by Eoin Colfer because Artemis has to take over the family business at a young age. Also the lower elements
A wickedly brilliant sci-fi explosion filled with fast-paced action and drama

Artemis Fowl has to be one of the most highly readable children’s books, complete with thrilling action/ adventure and science-fiction elements. Clever and imaginative, this hugely enjoyable read by accomplished author Eoin Colfer keeps you sat on the edge of your seat throughout. As a fan of Doctor Who, Star Wars, Star Trek and other sci-fi fantastic creations I was thrilled to find a series so spellbinding that simil

Artemis is at boarding school in Ireland when he receives an urgent e-mail from Russia. In it is a plea from a man who has been kidnapped by the Russian Mafiya: his father. As Artemis rushes to his rescue, he is stopped by a familiar nemesis, Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon fairy police. But this time, instead of battling the fairies, he is going to join forces with them if he wants to save the one of the few people in the world he loves.

I hate to think that I wasn't satisfied with the book.
Full of wit, magical technology, and a lot more action, this sequel to Artemis Fowl is just what you've come to expect of Eoin Colfer. Old characters return: Mulch Diggums(now living-and stealing-in LA), Trouble Kelp and his brother Grub, Foaly, and (briefly)Chix Verbil. A few new villans and some fairie politics keep the plot fast and furious, while Artemis (fresh from boarding school) and Butler team up with Holly and Comander Root to stop a smuggling ring. Oh, and rescue Artemis's father, MIA ...more

Artemis Fowl a twelve years old genius, the first mud-man to ever discover the secret of the ‘People’. Much less stole fairy gold from them and come out alive. The Second book tells us about the Arctic Incident in which his father lost his life, at least till now. With a business deal from the Russians who holds the life of Artemis Fowl Senior in their gasp, now they venture out into the Arctic to recuse his long lost father. At the same time, there is trouble within the L.E.P.; they’re being at ...more

I didn't discover the delight that is the Artemis Fowl series until a week ago, when I read ARTEMIS FOWL in one day. So, of course, I had to pick up a copy of THE ARCTIC INCIDENT right away, to see if it was as good as the first. It definitely is, and in my own humble opinion, I think I liked it even better than the first book. There are points throughout the book where Artemis, now thirteen, shows a softer, more vulnerable side that I truly enjoyed. Don't get
