Book Description

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

'Engagingly vivid, exciting and witty' - The Telegraph

'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.***

****Enter Artemis's wicked world at****

Eoin Colfer was born and raised in Wexford in the south-east of Ireland. He began writing plays at an early age and, as an adult, continued to write. ARTEMIS FOWL, his first book featuring the brilliant young anti-hero, was an immediate international bestseller and won several prestigious awards.

    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.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Artemis fowl 19 Dec. 2010
    Artemis fowl and the atlantis complex is a very strange book. this is because in all the other artemis fowl books he is organised, cunning and always in control of the situation. Artemis develops a psycological disorder called the atlantil complex which is kind of similar to OCD. He starts hating the number 4 and loves/needs the number 5. At the start of the book he meets with his fairy friends to discuss a solution for global warming when the meeting is attacked by robots that foaly (the genius centaur) designed. During the attack artemis gets electrocuted and changes from one personality to another. At the same time we learn that commander root's evil brother is controlling the robots from his prison. from which he intends to escape which he does using the robots as a diversion. Artemis and holly manage to escape the robots thanks to Mulch Diggums, Butler and Juliet (a dwarf and a close friend of theirs) after escaping the robots the get captured by root's brother, but the escape and finally save the day. I would recommend this book only to those who have already read the other artemis fowl books, it is very complex and it confused me a lot the first time I read it. I hope you buy and enjoy this book because I certainly did.

    5.0 out of 5 stars The Atlantis Complex 22 April 2012
    By M - L P
    Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
    Because I`m not a young person I`d never happen to read any book of the Artemis Fowl series. But because I`m addicted to Nathaniel Parker`s voice and reading I have purchased every audiobook of this series and listened to them all several times and really enjoyed them. Maybe it`s mostly because of his marvellous voice and incredibly talented way of doing all the different characters. But I`m also really fascinated for the charming and exciting story of fairies, pixies, dwarfs, goblins and the young criminal mastermind Artemis Fowl and his family and friends.
    Lucky me as I got acquainted with this lovely series by Eoin Colfer. The Atlantis Complex is number seven and by now the latest of the series but I hope it`s not the last. What a pity if he`s not going to write any further volumes for it ( for Nathaniel Parker to read! ).

    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.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Artemis fowl and the Atlantis complex 9 Feb. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    This book is amazing, is one of my favourite books yet. It has a few grammar mistakes, but they are not present in the paperback edition of it, so it was not eoin colfer 's fault. Most people have written really mean reviews and they think this book is the worst out of the series, but this is one of the strongest, as many loose ends have been tied up, and a few more have been created, which is simply to make you want to read the next book! I'm only 12 but I'm the only one who really appreciated this book out of all the people who wrote reviews.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Tepid 6 Jun. 2011
    By Mimble
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    Well; I think I actually have to agree with the majority of the more mid-range reviews on this, and say this is not what I've become accustomed to in the Artemis genre. It simply seems to get stuck in self-indulgent treacle half way through, leaving me struggling to move on with it, or - come to that - maintain an active interest. I've found it really hard to put the Artemis books down when I've started reading them. Up to now, that is. Shame really, but based on this I may have to borrow the last book from the library when it comes out.
