Artemis Fowl is a great book. It’s the first in this children’s series, and such a great story! If you read it you will love it and buy the rest of the books. This is a series that you will read all of them, back to back!
It’s perfect for those who enjoy fantasy. Artemis is an incredibly smart boy whose father was killed when Artemis was much younger. Artemis’ mother is emotionally devastated and spends most of her time by herself, leaving Artemis to his own devices. And while this is sad for Artemis, it’s not overdone or depressing. It also makes him a fantastic character that kids become completely invested in.
If you have a child, or know of one, who is always thinking, always wanting to experiment… a kid with a vivid imagination who’s just too clever for their own good, this is a fantastic book for them. Heck, it’s good for anyone who loves a reading adventure!
