Top 10 Reasons Artemis Fowl Is A Good Read

  1. It’s a very well-written book by a talented author that may actually help you brush up on your grammar skills.
  2. While it covers a pretty serious topic (TK), the book incorporates lots of humor into the story.
  3. It promotes peace between different countries and cultures, especially between the English and the Irish, who have a long history of not getting along. The book paints Ireland and its people in a very positive light.
  4. It’s the beginning of a whole series of adventures you can participate in as a reader. It may even inspire you to write an adventure story of your own!
  5. You’ll have to use your own mastermind to keep up with the story’s hero, 12-year-old millionaire, genius and, most important of all, criminal mastermind Artemis Fowl.
  6. Artemis is a great role model, especially when it comes to how using your brainpower can get you out of some of life’s sticky situations.
  7. The book is really fun to read. We think it will appeal to a variety of readers.
  8. The author uses words that can help you build up your vocabulary. If you run across a word you don’t know in the book, just a grab a dictionary, jot down the meaning and grow your vocabulary.
  9. Every page includes a line at the bottom written in a secret code. It’s your job to crack the code to reveal a secret message from the author!
  10. You’ll be a criminal mastermind in your very own right after you read this book!

Plot Line

Just so you know a bit more about the story you’ll find in Artemis Fowl, here’s a quick recap: The genre (or theme) of this novel is action and fantasy. The fantasy isn’t old-school, though – it’s a modern-day adventure involving tons of high-tech gadgets.

Artemis Fowl (his mum calls him Arty) is 12 and a boy genius. He and his sidekick, Butler, plan to steal some fairy gold. They put their plan in motion by kidnapping a fairy called Captain Holly Short and holding her ransom for the gold.

But Holly is a fairy in an elite force called the LEPrecons who work hard to keep the worlds of mortals and magic separate. Holly is so dedicated to her job she forgot to perform the special yearly ritual to recharge her fairy power – this puts her in incredible danger and creates BIG problems for her captor – Artemis.

    my quote is REALLY LONG...   "strength is the only thing that matters in this world. everything else is just an illusion for the weak... stop pretending! knock off that sentimental rubbish! harden your heart! you fool! you have to put aside your mercy... then you might.. MIGHT actually stand a chance! stop trying to convince yourself! HOW DARE YOU GIVE UP! Reach down deep! Take some pride in your heritage! There is only ONE certainty in life... A STRONG PERSON STANDS ABOVE AND CONQUERS ALL! There is no denying what you are... Just wait and see. The more we fight, the more powerful we become!! DON'T TELL ME YOU'RE STILL PREACHING THAT MERCY NONSENSE, THAT MEANS YOU'RE STILL HOLDING BACK! NO MORE WEAK HEARTED EXCUSES! THE STRONGEST WILL FIND A WAY TO SURVIVE, AND THE WEAKEST SHALL PERISH! is that the kind of fate you want for yourself?! ENOUGH! listen to me! You keep running with that self righteous look on your face! Pitiful... Its brute strength that detirmins the outcome of a battle, not goodness! WHY ARE WE SUBJECTING OURSELVES TO THIS? You've always been like this.. you show MERCY to everyone... Even your fiercest enemy's... live every moment of everyday for the singular purpose to meet the next challenge... Even if its bigger than you! test your limits.. push futher beyond! Push yourself to be the strongest there is...."   From dragonball z, vegeta
