Artemis Fowl was kindly provided to me by Netgalley for Disney-Hyperion.

This was admittedly quite a lot more fun than I had anticipated. Although, I do admit I would have enjoyed this much more a decade ago when this first came out (and I was of course a decade younger!) Artemis Fowl, a genius criminal mastermind, has a plan to restore his family's prior standing: he's going to steal a pot of gold.

Artemis was quite funny and incredibly enjoyable but was an extremely immature humor at times (i.e. fairy flatulence was referenced frequently). I can definitely see the appeal and why this is so well loved by the younger crowd. Will I be continuing the series? Doubtful. Will I be recommending this series to my younger kids? Most definitely.

Limonessa I thought Disney Hyperion didn't accept bloggers?
I read this in my twenties and I still felt too old. It's good though.

Bonnie It was available as a 'Read Now' on Netgalley so that's probably the only reason I managed to snag it.

Yeah, it's good. But I feel really old reading it. lol

Flannery It is seriously (SERIOUSLY) scary to me that I read it when it first came out.

Dear Bonnie,

Thanks for making me feel really old. (view spoiler)


Bonnie Dear Flann,

I apologize. Forgive me?

Your jerk friend,
