The Artemis Fowl Files (Artemis Fowl 0.5 & 1.5)
It always seems to me that the major flaw of writers, particularly in the young-adult ...more
'Very well, Short. If you can do anything to change my mind, now is your chance. Your only chance. Well, can you do anything?'The last line of the first story ("LEPrecon") is worth the purchase alone.
Holly looked at Trouble, and she could have sworn that he winked at her. This gave her the courage to do something unthinkable, ridiculously impertinent and insubordinate given the circumstances.
'Just this, Commander,' she said.
Side note: I have got to finish the last two books in this series. Th ...more
The book contains two short stories: "LEPrecon" describes Holly's initiation from Traffic duty to Recon. "Seventh Dwarf" follows Mulch Diggums, my favorite Artemis Fowl character, as he and Artemis team up to steal a famous tiara.
The rest of the book is comprised of "notes" from Artemis Fowl's files on the fairy folk--the fairy code and a key to decode it and interviews with the main charactersare the highlights.
I'm happy when finishing a series I find some short stories set in the same universe. If it took me some time to get into the last Artemis Folw's book, I thoroughly enjoyed these two short stories from the start. I loved discovering these little adventures and the little bit of information they gave me.
Now I would like to re-read the Fowl's books from the start.
I absolutely ADORE this series. Genius young criminal mastermind? Kick-butt faeries? What's not to love? So, naturally, I was overjoyed to stumble upon this great find in the library.
The book was quick and fun (200 pages) with activities to entertain a kid for hours (fortunately, I have stuff to do. I did not abandon my maturity. But I would have like to:)).
The stories were written flawlessly and the interviews had me laughing. I adored getting bonus c ...more
I would highly recommend reading this book after reading Artemis Fowl and The Arctic Incident because there are massive spoilers for both of those books in this one. It's not necessary to read this book to understand the others, but it's good for clarification and information if you're curious or the type of fan who has to know the details or enjoys the details.
The reading level is definitely middle-school level, and this book only has two stories: LEPrecon (which gives the ...more
Not too much to say about this one. The Artemis Fowl Files is for the completists amongst fans of the series. It contains two short stories of 76 pages each, and a little activity pack in between. Each of the books in the series also contains a code along the bottom of each page for the wily eyed reader to crack after reading the book - for those who've missed this snippet in the books, this activity pack specifically invites a little code breaking activity and provides the full alphabet to get ...more

The full stories add strong detail to the main story; the first one clarifies who Turnball Root is, exactly how crazy he is and why he has such a grudge against Holly and his brother; it ...more
I'll start with the story LEPRecon, this is the back story of how, Holly Short, became Lower Elements Police' first female officer. The short story also fleshes out some of Root's past as well, like who knew he had a brother, and will be come back for revenger somehow?. It's a very fun and fast paced story, but yo ...more
It's been a few years since I read my last Artemis Fowl book, and to be honest, I don't really remember a whole lot about them. I feel like the books in general are not memorable for me. I know I had fun reading them, and I know I (mostly) liked the characters, but the books really aren't anything special.
This one had two very short stories. The stories didn't draw me in, I mostly just kept reading to ge ...more
This is a collection of different items in the Artemis Fowl universe. There are two short stories, interviews with the characters, and illustrations.
My rating is based on the short stories. One story is about Holly joining the Recon unit and the other story is earlier in this series. The second story is an adventure with Artemis and Mulch. Both stories are excellent and bring forth the enjoyment of this series.
If you like the Artemis Fowl books you will probably enj ...more
It contains interviews, some puzzles, the Gnommish script decoder, interviews with the characters and the better part of the whole thing, two short stories. One of them is an event that takes place before the start of the series, which is Holly Short’s promotion ...more
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.
It is no secret that I have fallen in love with the Artemis Fowl series. I have listened to the audio books of all seven released novels and anticipate the release of the eighth and last installment next year. Thus, I was pleased to discover The Artemis Fowl Files.
Of course, I had to ac ...more
LEPrecon was somewhat of a disappointment. The villain, who has a very interesting background, turns out to be flat in the end and the story was just lacking the usual Fowl smartness and edginess. The story is ...more
This book was very interesting to say the least, I was a bit skeptical in the beginning. Mainly because I’m not a big fan of books that have fairies and magic in it, but this book changed my view on that opinion.
What kept me reading this book was that I was always wondering what was going to happen next. The story kept me on my toes from the very start; you never knew what was going to happen. The plot of the story probably wasn’t the greatest because it was very simple b ...more
Il libro è una raccolta di storie riguardanti il mondo di Artemis Fowl. I personaggi principali presenti nel primo libro raccontano vicende sconosciute.
Si scopre per esempio come Spinella sia diventata un agente della LEP. E già allora dimostra una vera propensione nel disobbedire agli ordini e a pensare di testa sua, tentando sempre di salvare la situazione con il minor numero possibile di vittime. Fin da subito riesce a stupire il capitano Tubero, ...more
#0.5 is titled "LEPrecon" and is the story of Captain Holly Short's initiation into Recon (from Traffic) - features Commander Root and Captain Trouble Kelp. This short story gives us good background on Holly - that underneath her impulsiveness, seeming inability to obey orders and brash jock behaviour, ...more
I must say that while I’m writing this – I have no recollection what the first story was about – which either sums up my memory or shows that the story wasn’t particularly memorable.
I didn’t really enjoy the supplementary material. ...more
The stories may be short but they are great stories. The interveiws and information on some of Foaly's ga ...more
Same old spotter's guide. Quiz, crossword, word search and Gnomish text translation - downright pathetic.
Both stories, pretty good. Particularly the one starring Holly (girl crush ftw HELL YEAH).
Bottom line: cool addition to an awesome series. Must-try for the superfans.
This sort of tie-in gets lost when you listen to audio books; a real shame as Nathaniel Parker (who narrates the unabridged novels) does so with such aplomb. It would have been nice if LEPrecon had been included as an audio bonus with The Opal Decept ...more
