Book Description

7 April 2011 Artemis Fowl

Artemis Fowl and the Atlantis Complex is the seventh awesome book in the bestselling Artemis Fowl series by Eoin Colfer.

Will the real Artemis Fowl please stand up?

Criminal mastermind Artemis Fowl has summoned an elite group of high-tech fairies to Iceland. He wants to present his invention to save the world from global warming. But something terrible has happened to him.

Artemis Fowl has become nice.

The fairies diagnose Atlantis Complex (aka multiple-personality disorder) - dabbling in magic has damaged Artemis's mind. And now the subterranean city of Atlantis is under attack from vicious robots and nice Artemis is no use to anyone.

Can fairy ally Captain Holly Short get devious Artemis back before they strike?

'Hugely satisfying - not to be missed' - Irish Independent

'Fast, funny and very exciting' - Daily Mail

***Artemis Fowl was winner of the WHSmith Children's Book of the Year Award and Children's Book of the Year at the Children's Book Awards. Shortlisted for the Whitbread Children's Book of the Year Award.***

More About the Author

Eoin Colfer (pronounced Owen) is the New York Times best-selling author

of the blockbuster Artemis Fowl series as well as Airman; Half Moon

Investigations; The Supernaturalist; Eoin Colfer's Legend of... books;

The Wish List; Benny and Omar; and Benny and Babe. He was born in

Wexford on the southeast coast of Ireland in 1965, where he and his four

brothers were brought up by his father (an elementary school teacher,

historian and artist of note) and mother (a drama teacher). He first

developed an interest in writing in primary (elementary) school with

gripping Viking stories inspired by history that he was learning in

school at the time.

Eoin got his degree from Dublin University and qualified as a primary

school teacher, returning to work in Wexford. He married in 1991 and he

and his wife spent about 4 years between 1992 and 1996 working in Saudi

Arabia, Tunisia and Italy. His first book, Benny and Omar, was published

in 1998, based on his experiences in Tunisia; it has since been

translated into many languages; a sequel followed in 1999. In 2001, the

first Artemis Fowl book was published worldwide to much success -

shortly thereafter he left teaching to concentrate fully on his writing.

To this day, Eoin has written 6 Artemis Fowl books which have sold over

12 million copies worldwide.

3.0 out of 5 stars Big step down 21 Aug 2010
By Inspector Gadget VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Spoilers thar be!

I don't know why Artemis Fowl 7 is so below-par and underwhelming. Perhaps Eoin Colfer was under obligation to finish to a deadline before developing any fully-formed ideas or something. Nothing in this book really satisfied me, I'm sorry to say.

Artemis is in Iceland preparing for a demonstration of a new Earth-saving eco-device when a deep space probe falls out of the sky on top of him and his friends. This results in a slow-boiling mental illness coming to a pop and Artemis' personality being succeed by "Orion". With much of their resources depleted or lost, Orion and his usual team of Butler, Juliet, Holly, Foaly and Mulch must find out the whos and whys of the devastating crash.

Colfer's first and foremost failure here is the fact that he just doesn't have enough story to sustain an epic adventure, even (and especially, I should say) one told as quickly as this. The plot is delivered in several, fast-moving, large chunks with very little time for significant development or even a single decent twist. It's all very straight-forward and as with all fast-paced novels/movies coherence is sacrificed for speed. I was frequently lost and confused as to what was going on. I'll also pin some of this blame on the fact that Colfer simply did not describe many scenes very well. On top of this the book ends with nearly all plot threads completely open-ended and multiple unanswered questions.

The globe-trotting nature of the previous books is absent. The story only superficially takes us to Iceland, Cancun and Venice. Most of it takes place inside a submersible pod with very, very little opportunity for epic or exciting scenes.

I hear that Artemis Fowl 8 will be the last one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 7 Aug 2010
By Nick
Not nearly as good as the others in the series. Artemis spends most of his time unconscious or with a different (and not better) personality. Butler and Mulch Diggums are given very little to do.
Previous outings have had me laughing out loud but this one was hard work.

Two years since Artemis Fowl and the Time-Paradox, the titular teenage genius is back, and this time with a plan to save the world - a change from his usual various and nefarious criminal activities. The book opens in Iceland, on Artemis' 15th birthday.

At the end of the Time Paradox, things had become hopelessly tangled and complicated (that tends to happen when timestreams are involved), especially between Holly and Artemis. What do you need after that?


A lot of it.

This a book chock-full of awesome. Here is a list.

- Butler. Does anyone else geek out over at TV Tropes? There is a whole page about AF's crowning moments of awesome. What is great about this series (among all the other things) is that the author never allows literary snobbery to interfere with storytelling.

- The fear of cliché never stops him from writing the baddest, worstest crowning moments of funny. In fact, it's full of CMs: CMs of awesome, funny AND heartwarming.

- Brilliant one-liners: Colfer is master of the hilarious throwaway remark. You have to read `em.

- The relationships: I love the interplays and by-plays between the cast: Artemis and Foaly, Mulch and Artemis, Foaly and Mulch, Holly and Butler, Artemis and Holly - there's a real camaraderie hidden under all the quipping. And they're a bunch of geeks shamelessly geeking out - it's great! Geeking out is almost my professional pastime, and AF hits all my geek buttons whilst also hitting all my fangirl buttons.

- Twins: a glimpse of Artemis' now older twin brothers, in what is the most entertaining side-story of the book.

Artemis has been on the road to reform since the Arctic Incident, when he gets his father back, but old habits die hard.

3.0 out of 5 stars not as good as expected 14 Dec 2010
this (pre-last) book of Artemis' adventures seemd quite "dead" to me. There was none of the page turning action i remember from previous books nor, any mystery.
It was a fun read but most of the action takes place in the last 10 pages or so so the whole book before that is pretty much a prologue, setting the scene for what turns out to me a lukewarm encounter of good and evil.
i was rather let down by Colfer but still i will buy the next and final one and see what happens there!

By Russell

This series has a great, fast paced and action packed story line. you can read them as a stand alone book, but I would recommend reading them all. Eoin Colfer is a great author and will be reading more of his work.
