REVIEW: Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer

Date Started: Wednesday, April 6, 2005
Date Finished: Saturday, April 9, 2005
My BookCrossing Rating: 7 out of 10 stars
A pretty good read, even if a little less intricate than what I’m used to. But I guess that’s probably because it’s a children’s book, a la Harry-Potter-esque, so the author might not have wanted to convolute the story with too many subplots and such.

I couldn’t really bring myself to like the character of Artemis all that much, though I did like the fairy Holly Short. In any case, I’m looking forward to reading the next book in this series, Artemis Fowl, The Arctic Incident, which I’ve got here as well, to see where things go with these characters. Especially since Holly is supposed to be teaming up with Artemis in that one too.

See the BookCrossing journal entry for this book for more comments and information.
