The Moffia has most likely won many gang wars outside of the book. The Russian military also played a crucial role in winning the Second World War. So that statement is completely incorrect.(less)

Action! Action! Action! That's the name of the game in Eoin Colfer's The Arctic Incident.

Child prodigy and criminal mastermind, Artemis Fowl is searching for his kidnapped father. He needs the help of the fairy police, and as it so happens, they need him. Law and lawbreakers work together in this fast-paced, humorous action-fantasy.

Eoin Colfer has created fun fairyland for the 21st century. It's a nice, soft blend of technology and fantasy, not too heavy on either count. The scope of his world

The Artemis Fowl books really are perfect for a quick, easy read. Which is good, because I'll be doing the twenty-four hour readathon tomorrow, and I really don't want to get burnt out on reading!

The Arctic Incident develops Artemis as a more sympathetic figure, having left behind his attempts to exploit the People (the fairies), and feeling some remorse over how he handled things in the first book. He's also focused on rescuing his father, missing for two years, convinced he's still alive. Mean

For me, as an adult, the Artemis Fowl series is a guilty pleasure.

I get a kick out of Artemis, smart beyond reason youth he is, and like the relationship between him and his bodyguard, Butler.

Throw in the fantastical underworld of fairies, dwarfs, and other magical creatures and there are a lot of options for a fast-paced, fun story.

In the second installment, Artemis finds himself in boarding school now that his mother has recovered and begun to assert rules on the boy.

There's nothing that attracts me more, than a genius without the glasses. Especially if the geek looks like this

(For those who don't know this hottie, he's Chuck/Zachary Levi) However, if the geek involved is 13 years old and is a criminal mastermind, plus fantasizing that he would grow up faster than a normal human being would, well thats just plain pedophilia. :))

Well it's not actually that bad, if you'll become an instant billionaire and with him you could rule the world together. But still

Eoin Colfer has done it again. I loved the sequel to Artemis Fowl. How could I not, being a combinations of things that fascinate me: Russia, antiheroes, faery, and cold environments (arctic/North Pole). Yes I was very much enjoying this book.

The action is great, tempered with the laugh out loud humor. Artemis is up to his usual machinations, and exhibiting his snarky sense of humor, often at the expense of elder authority figures. I don't normally like precocious, know-it-all kids, but somethin

My second foray into the world of Artemis Fowl was another quick, fun adventure. This book is a true sequel to the first with the continuation of the story arc of Artemis' lost father. Once again this ends up involving the fairy world including Artemis and Butler's first trip down below.

Engaging from the first page this book has a great pace that kept me turning (or should I say clicking) through the pages. I like the way that Colfer doesn't talk down to his readers. This is a children's book bu

I completely fell in love with the first book in this series, however this second iteration has fallen short of the mark set by the first.
It's by no means a bad book, and I enjoyed the view point of Holly Short more in this than the first. However, my love for the first came from Artemis himself, and in this one...

So, a big issue with writing very, very smart characters, is that they have to BE very, very smart. This came across beautifully in the first book! Artemis managed to outsmart everyone

So the second book of the ARTEMIS FOWL. It was a pretty light, funny read actually.
This time the focus is on the faerie people . And Artemis is basically on the subplot, but its important nevertheless. It was really funny to see how captain short cope up with artemis and his body-guard. :p Looking forward to more actions in the next books.

Also non so come si possano leggere questi libri da bambini e non restarne profondamente traumatizzati. Colfer writes some fucked up shit, sometimes.

So i started this series with one thought in mind: a 12-year-old as a master of crime? interesting.

i liked book 1, but this second book is even better.

So Artemis Fowl is cold and hardened on book 1, but it was good to see him in a different light on this sequel.

He never gave up that his father is still alive. He and Butler keep on searching and searching. at last, a sliver of a clue came to them. or rather, a ransom video. it may terrify any kid, but not Artemis Fowl. he was giddy, for this vide

I liked the first book of the series more than this one. I don't know, Artemis wasn't his usual self and the plot wasn't as interesting as the first one was. I had fun reading it, but still, I had hoped for an improvement and ended up being a little disappointed.

I don't have a lot to say, I enjoyed reading The Arctic Incident but at the same time I didn't like it as much as I hoped I would. Aside from the fact that I had some problems with the plot (I mean, please, the russian mafia? Pfft, come

Basically, one part of the book that totally make me laughed. Some part of the wits and humor are so real, it's undeniable for you not to get knock out of it.

I love how the plot takes us to explore more about the People, how the alliance works on with different species to remind that the group once try to kill each other and now, help one another.

I get such a kick out of Artemis' adventures! Teaming up with fairy special ops, outwitting every adult who stands in his way-he's a breath of fresh air. This book finds him hinting for his presumed dead father. But he has to make a deal with the fairies to get help in the arctic circle. With Artemis who knows how this could turn out.

Re-reading Artemis Fowl and the Arctic Incident was once again fantastic! This shouldn't come as a surprise but Eoin Colfer manages to enthrall me again and again with his books, no matter how many times I have read them.

With re-reading this book, I have noticed a few things, actually. I noticed that Artemis definitely has a slightly more softer side. I'm not sure if this is just me, but it's what I think. He's more humane in this book for sure, with wanting to rescue his father and building fri

I really wish I could have enjoyed this book more. As with the first book in the series, my sister and husband both loved it, but I could not really get into it. It was maybe a three star read for me but am bumping it up half a star because I do feel that part of my trouble is because I listened to the audiobook and I think perhaps the short episodic format of the chapters (jumping between scenes and characters often) didn't work especially well with my relatively short commutes--I kept

Surprise-Surprise! This was much better than the first in this series, Artemis Fowl. The story, although less likely plausible, was better. Artemis has matured some and now seems to fit the situation better. This story was much funnier and more action-packed.

I'll just pretend the first book was an epilogue, and will potentially continue on in the series, especially if they continue to be just as good as this one. Way to step up to the task Eoin Colfer!

For being an Artemis book, this didn't really contain a lot of him, sadly. Having said that, it was still an interesting story, and provided some laughs, some gasps and some situations to reflect upon. The build up and the climax were rather delicious, and then we even got a second one, sadly, over a lot quicker than the first one. There wasn't much of a resolution at all, which means I shall I have to read the next book series sooner than the gap between books one and two.

This book continues to build upon the previous one. Emotional side of Artemis is shown as he is ventured to rescue his father from the russia. And there is a coup happening in the underground. Action packed with a lot of character development. Loved it.

(9/10) Another fun filled fairy adventure from Eoin Colfer. I do really love this series, they manage to be compelling, funny and have a convincing story all at the same time, something which a lot of YA lacks.

This time Artemis is intent on rescuing his father from the clutches of the Russian Mafiya unfortunately along the way he is delayed by a goblin rebellion let by a mad pixie and a fairy out for revenge. My favourite kleptomaniac dwarf makes a very memorable reappearance as "The Grouch" and

2.5 Stars! This one fell right down the middle for me. I've said it before, and I'll say it again, I struggle with MG fantasy, but there are a few series I really love so I don't want to give up on it as a genre! I will persevere!
