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...more

Someone is supplying the goblins with human tech, all fingers point to Artemis Fowl.
The beautiful thing about this second book is the growth that takes place from the starting chapters to the end. The Artemis Fowl Affair was snappy and poignantly funny, this book doesn't disappoi...more
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...more
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...more

On my review, I guess the story for me was fair enough. I was definitely satisfied by the characters' progress. I think the turn of events really improved them or contributed to the changes that occurred. Adventu...more

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...more
Artemis Fowl: 13 year old genius wanting to find his lost and believed to be dead father.
4.0 out of 5.0 stars
The very worst thing about this book is the school Artemis is sent to. It ust bugs me, for some reason. At any school I’ve ever attended, if you see the school counselor, you can’t simply call them idiots, walk out, and then fake a call from mom to get you off the hook. Any school school counselor I’ve ever known would be calling every few days making sure everything was all hunky-dory even w...more
(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...more

Doctor Po: I suppose you could. Is that the case?
Artemis: (head in hands) It's my mother, Doctor.
Doctor Po: Yes?
Artemis: My mother, she...
Doctor Po: Your mother, yes?
Artemis: She forces me to endure this ridiculous therapy when the school's so-called counsellors are little better than misguided do-gooders with degrees.”
