The Atlantis Complex (Artemis Fowl #7)
Artemis has committed his entire fortune to a project he believes will save the planet and its inhabitants, both human and fairy. Can it be true? Has goodness taken hold of the world’s greatest teenage criminal mastermind?
Captain Holly Short is unconvinced, and discovers that Artemis is suffering from Atla...more
Interspecies love! (Aaaw.)
Killer blobs of gel! (Yaay!)
...and much, much more. Colfer's wit is as sharp as ever, the confusing technological banter is utterly welcome, and our characters are back just the way we like 'em. Of course, though, such is not the case with Artemis...
It's nice to know that our current villain is not whom I was expecting, and also tha...more
When I finished this book, I was pretty pleased with the feeling it left. I thought it was a great book, but it just seemed like something was missing. Don't get me wrong, I thought Artemis's disorder was interesting and Orion cracked me up, but I thought it was still missing some small elemen...more
Yeah... there isn't "awesomeness" and "asdadasdf" for this one, just 'fine'.
the book was good, I mean don't get me wrong but is nothing compared with the previous sixth books. Maybe Eoin Colfer was run out of ideas... or maybe he just write it quickly because the fans was expecting the book so much and putting him so much pressure... I'm not sure.
the fact is that, Eoin Colfer is by far one of the best novelist I have ever read and I love almost everything he d...more
Artemis is going crazy. Orion loves Holly. Opal Koboi the younger is still at large. Root the older has been overlooked. And love between a human and fairy turns fatal to many. Giant squids have deadly number of legs/tentacles. And Artemis's snow will save the world.
Fantastic. I just wish the years actually all added up. Because they don't. AF was nearly 15 in book 5 when he went to save...more
I remember picking it up a year back and not liking it. Partially b/c of the huge environment emphasis (reminds me of how maximum ride went from saving the world to saving the environment, in a not-so-subtle way).
But, determined to read it this time, I found the same clever language and loveable characters. I must say, however, that the plot shifted perspectives a bit too much (as serina said, too much focus on antagonist) and without any strange twists and turns
I am now as eager to read the...more

The story begins in Iceland where Artemis has invited four trusted fairies to give them a presentation of "THE PROJECT" to save the world from global warming. But something is terribly wrong...more
At first I didn't understand what was going on with Artemis but when Orion first appeared I found it both embarrassing for Arty and absolutely hilarious! All I have to say is 'Poor Holly. Poor, poor Holly.' for having to deal with it all as well as saving the day - and the world - once again.
I'm a littl...more

I'm a bit too old for these books, so the character of Mulch Diggums doesn't thrill me as much as he does the little kids, but there was one scene...more
The story starts out full of action - but none of it feels like the edge of the seat action found in previous books. In fact, it all feels like we're just hashing out routine. An explosion here, a crisis there. I find myself skipping whole paragraphs and then going back to read them o...more
This edition to the Artemis Fowl series has recieved my lowest rating thus far, not because it was bad; it was a good book and I did enjoy it, but I...more
In The Atlantis Complex, Artemis Fowl summoned the fairies to Iceland to present ‘THE PROJECT’ he been working on to save the world from global warming. But the fairies noticed that something is wrong with Artemis. Some of the things that the fairies noticed were: Artemis was counting his words; he’s obsessed with number five and was paranoid with number four (which means death in Chinese).
The fairies then diagnose Artemis with Atlantis Complex or what...more
SPOILERS AHEAD!! Please do not proceed if you haven’t read the book yet and plan to! I’ve given the game away in here..
Far from being the exciting thriller its blurb and the success of its predecessors promise, Artemis Fowl and the Atlantis Complex is unexciting, predictable and, to use a word used too many times in the book, boorish.
The book starts off interestingly enough, with...more

this book fits under the 'A science fiction or fantasy book'. I dislike this category because i do not read many science fiction/fantasy books because i enjoy more explosive books.
my favourite quote from the book is 'Four is Death' because it sounds like death is Chinese and shows how crazy that the main character has become.
something new i have learnt from this book is that the capital of Iceland has a really long name
"'This is not a bad ship as it happens,' said Mulch Diggums, pushing a couple of buttons on the stolen mercenaries' ship just to see what they did. When one caused the contents of the sewage recycler to be dumped on an innocent Scottish deep sea trawler below, the dwarf decided to stop pushing.
(One of the fisherman happened to be making a video of gulls for his university media course and caught the entire descending blob of waste matter on film. It seemed to anyone who sa...more
I like that the books have adventure and myths. I didnt like that there were boring parts in the book. Artemis fowl lost his mind just when the world needed him most. He is a young man that discovers things.
This book is for readers that like adventure, discovery, a...more
"Look! Someone who cares!"
Funny, but it sounds more like Douglas Adams than Mr Colfer. Frankly, the only character who I still liked was Foaly, since Artemis spends half the book locked away in his head, Holly hardly had any redeeming moments (not even the part with the pencil), and Vinyaya dies a horrible, painful death before she can say more than like,...more
"The Atlantis Complex" introduces a new piece to the jenga tower of criminal-mastermind-turned-do-gooder Artemis Fowl's life. Mental illness. Inevitable for a boy genius, really. Artemis' internal mental struggle sidelines him for the majority of the novel, letting the development of the other characters shine.

"Not me!" said Orion cheerily, "I'm just a Teenager with hormones running wild and may I say, young fairy lady, they're running wild in your direction.”
