I really enjoyed reading this series. I would give this audiobook 5 stars, except the reader wasn't quite right. He read with a different tone and accent than I had in my head when I read the books and it just wasn't as good. I recommend reading the books if you can, not the audiobooks, but the audiobooks weren't terrible. Just not as good as the hardbacks/ebooks.

I liked this fiction CD. It is unrealistic; but, I enjoyed it anyway. It is too violent for children to listen to. It involves fairies, trolls and other mythical magical creatures. The main character is a emotionally spoiled undisciplined 12 year old human boy. I do not like his character or his actions. Someone needs to say No to him. He needs a good spanking. Nathaniel Parker ably creates voices for characters belonging to a wide range of species-human, fairy, troll, and more-in this first adventure of 12-year-old Irish millionaire supervillain Artemis Fowl, who here sets out to kidnap a fairy.

This is a great book series! Great play on a techy fairy world! The novels are great and the person who narrates the series does a wonderful job!
You can also get graphic novels.

A fun book for youngsters of any age. I'm 71, for instance, and enjoyed it a great deal.

Alluring, is the perfect word to describe Artemis Fowl. The vulnerable characters and realistic relationships are easy to relate to and sympathize with. The descriptive scenery creates an exquisite mental image. Along with the twists of the plot, Artemis Fowl is quite an enjoyable book. This book stimulated every crack and crevice in my imagination. Eoin Colfer has such a different take on old myths and legends, it’s refreshing. I have never read a book quite like Artemis Fowl. I would recommend this book to those who seek adventure. No matter what age, adventure will lure anyone who craves it.

In the book Artemis Fowl, Artemis is an arrogant, rich genius. And what does one do when one is so well off? Become a criminal mastermind of course. This story is situated in an alternate universe where old legends are truths just beyond the reaches of modern day life. Artemis has always been able to outwit anyone and anything in his past. With him being only twelve, this is quite the feat. So when Artemis finds that fairies are in fact real, trouble starts brewing in the peaceful lands of Ireland. Even Artemis doesn't realize how vicious folktale creatures can be. His goal to capture heaps of gold is obscured by the hardships of battling mystical creatures, yet Artemis was never one to back away from a challenge. The peaceful region of Ireland is completely oblivious to the chaos inside the Fowl Manor. The spiraling adventures of this fantasy novel will be sure to engross you.
