Fowl's father returns from prison a reformed man, and he's made Artemis promise to keep clean. But going straight will have to wait until Artemis can pull off one final scheme: get paid to keep his newly c

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

This is Artemis Fowl and the Eternity Code!
A tale of Action, Adventure, Comedy and friendship- Artemis Fowl and the Eternity Code has it all !
The Eternity Code is 13 year old anti-hero Artemis Fowl’s 3rd adventure, and perhaps his most exciting yet.
In this story, Artemis has made a high tech gadget, using stolen fairy technology-decad...more
way into a conscience, his fairy friendships are burgeoning. But this was to be his
last nefarious to-do and he has submitted himself to the fairies' mind-wipe. If I
didn't know the series continue to #8, I would be on the edge of my seat, as well as
feeling sad for the end of the inter-species friendship. As there's 5 more rollicking
adventures to look forward to, I'm sanguine.
All the old gang's back plus Juliet...more
So far, a third of the way in the book I like the action in the book. I also like the descriptive words used in the text. I chose this book bec...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

Learn not to underestimate your opponent. Spiro shocks Artemis by revealing his upper hand, leaving Butler the bodyguard severely injured and taking the super fairy computer, names the "C Cube."

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

Artemis has managed to restore both of his parents not only to the land of the living, but to health. There's a down side--Dad is a reformed man, more concerned about family than wealth, so Artemis must control his shenanigans. He decides to have one last caper . . .
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
That boy is a genius. And he is so likable! If only he was real... The books by Eoin Colfer are always interesting to read, they are well thought-through, well written and contains multi-dimensional characters. I've read the first five (or six?) books from this series, and I enjoyed every one of them. Although they are children's books, I read them when I was around eighteen-twenty years old, so I would recommend it to anyone - boy or girl - between the age of ten and...more
