The Eternity Code is 13 year old anti-hero Artemis Fowl’s 3rd adventure, and perhaps his most exciting yet.

What I appreciate about Eoin Colfer is that his books don't change from juvenile to adult fiction halfway through the series like some other series out there. My boys have more leisure time and read ahead of me, so with the Artemis Fo...more
book is about a 13-year-old criminal named Artemis Fowl, who presents a hard-coded supercomputer
from his own design, stolen from Fairy technology. Fairies are also a key faction in the story, which are
much more modernized and dystopian. After a buyer double-crosses Artemis and his bodyguard, the C-
cube supercomputer is stolen, leading to a large chain of events in which Artemis collaborates with the...more
Artemis Fowl, the criminal mastermind is back in his element. In the last book, we didn’t see his criminal side much (which was good for his character development) but it was great to see...more
In this third installment to Eoin Colfer's funny, fast-paced, fairy-filled adventure series, boy genius and arch criminal Artemis Fowl once again can't resist plotting the perfect crime--and, once again, he can't keep from stirring up so much trouble that the fate of the entire fairy world teeters in the balance.
The once hard-boiled Artemis has softened a bit between his bestselling debut and the seat-of-your-pants Arctic Incident, and that trend continues in The Eternity Co
The book gives us an insight to all of the characters. Artemis; confused about whether to continue being a criminal or to join his father in saving the world. Juliet, trying desperately to outshine her brother but slowly realizing that she needs to pave a path for herself instead of simply following in Butler's footsteps. Holly, not being able to...more

Book three in the Artemis Fowl series is again non-stop action. Early in the story, Butler is mortally wounded and Artemis goes to great lengths to convince the fairies to bring his friend back to life. The fairies raise the ethical question of whether Artemis has the right to do this, and remind him that he is responsible for any handicaps Butler may suffer as a result. The action and technology are over-the-top and thrilling as usual, and several characters are in peril,...more
At the moment Pex and Chips were bonding under the full moon while Mulch dug a dwarf size pit in the dry clay behind an abandoned cement factory.
"You wanna guess why they call me Pex?" asked Pex, flexing his chest muscles as a hint.
Chips opened a packet of potato chips he was forever crunching.
"I don't know is it, like, short for something?"
"I don't know." said Chips, he used that phrase a lot. "Francis?"
This sounded dumb, even to Pex "Fr...more
I really wavered between giving this book four stars, because for some reason, I REALLY liked it a lot more than the other Artemis Fowl books. But I kept it at a humble three stars because, well, the plot wasn't all that meaty. But this was the first Artemis Fowl book that kept me really engaged the whole time -- usually I'd space out during techie scenes and then have trouble finding my way back. Either this book had less of that, or I've gotten used to it enough that it doesn't put me off anym...more
My only complaint about this book in the series is that I don’t hav...more

Unfortunately, he tries to extort money from one or the most ruthless industrialists in the world, which has the very bad effect of inadvertently putting fairy technology (far more advanced than anyt...more
