4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting twist on Fairies!, 6 Aug. 2011
By 
This review is from: Artemis Fowl (Paperback)
Eoin Colfer has brought the idea of fairies right up to date, giving them advanced technology and the troubles of a modern society. Combine this with ancient rules that govern and limit their scope to use magic and you have a fun and highly entertaining book. And for the fairies you have a good deal of frustration! The central characters are all well rounded and likeable. I suppose Artemis Fowl is meant to be the bad guy but in truth he didn't come over as either evil or nasty. Instead he is portrayed as a person trying to get the job done and using his one main advantage, his intelligence, to do so. The supporting characters are also great fun; the indestructible Butler, the determined fairy Holly and the rather flaky Juliet, they all add to an enjoyable story. The plot itself was basic, don't expect anything deep and meaningful here, it is just what it is, a fast and exciting story for young and old alike.

There are quite a few more in this series and I am sure I will read them over time but as much as I liked this it is not one of those books that makes me want to go out and get the rest. Something for when I have a gap between other reading.
