5.0 out of 5 stars Magic at it's best, 10 Jan. 2004
Eoin Colfer hasn't disappointed with this third book following the adventures of Artemis Fowl. It is just as witty and clever as the first and second books and like the others impossible to put down. In this book, after the return of his father, Artemis has to make up his mind about how he really wants to act his life. Mastarmind criminal, or a 'hero' as his father now intends. Whilst trying to get back the C Cube an incredibal box created from fairy technology, stolen by businessman Jon Spiro.
The story has magic, humour and all the clever scemes you would expect from it and more. It's not your average fairy tale and real enough to believe it's true. It's suitable for young and old alike but i think it best suits teenagers, who will understand the plot and still have a slight childlike belief in magic and fairies. It is a fun book to read and full of magic and the magic of technology and gadgets.

5.0 out of 5 stars Noughts And Crosses READ IT!, 8 Jan. 2004
I first picked up this book in school and by th end of that day I'd finished it. It's a story of two friends Callum and Sephy and how they are being forced apart by the racial discrimination in their country. It is a world where blacks rule over the whites and set out in diary form. I won't ruin the story by giving too much away but i will say that as they grow older Callum and Sephy begin to realise that their love for each other is beyond just friendship, but their families are determined they shouldn't be together. I love this book as it goes through Sephy and Callum's emotions first hand and makes you feel involved. It is a gripping read all the way through with many twists along the way. It is brilliantly written and i never wanted it to end. It is possibly the best book i have ever read and the only 'real life' type book i have actually enjoyed. The end is very moving and brought me to tears, but a happy ending wouldn't have made the book as brilliant as it is. It is a must read and suitable for teenagers and adults, but children under 12 might find it a little too challenging.
