It's somehow surprising how easily I loved this book/series. It rarely happened; I was usually critical about reading books.

Colfer's narration is great, and makes you want to keep on reading. To think I finished the first book--which is usually more on the boring side, though not this one--in two days' time! Not to mention the first day there was a black-out in our area. No wonder I had a headache. :))

The characters are well-developed too. Artemis Fowl is, to describe him simply, an evil genius. He's so brilliant, it amuses me. Arrogant he may be, I still liked him. And since he's such a kid, all the more to find him...adorable, in a different way. And the others, depending on which side they stood, can be very likeable or annoying. Haha.

There is one thing, though. Sometimes, I don't know if the narration's in third-person POV, or if it's in a general POV. (Sounds confusing, yeah, I know.) Of course, it doesn't affect in any way how the story goes, or my rating for it, but it does bother me from time to time. But it's really a small matter so it shouldn't be reason not to read it.
