Full of unexpected twists and turns,Artemis Fowl is a riveting, magical adventure.

My Experiences

Once again, my brother gave this book to me long before I can remember. I gave it a try, and I HATED IT! Now you may be wondering, “Serene, these books are supposed to be ‘the greatest children books EVER,’ so why are you putting this on your blog”. To answer your question, in later years I tried again, and was surprised to see that it was one of the GREATEST CHILDREN’S BOOKS EVER!


“It’s like learning to ride a unicorn. You never forget.”

“If I win, I’m a prodigy. If I lose, then I’m crazy. That’s the way history is written.”

“Trust me. I’m a genius.”

“Butler could kill you a hundred different ways without use of his armoury. Though I’m sure one would be quite sufficient.”

“I don’t like lollipops.”

“Let us proceed under the assumption that the fairy folk do exist, and that I am not a gibbering moron.”

“The problem is that I know the textbook answers to any question you care to ask.”

“I am unarmed. But Butler here, my …ah…butler, has a Sig Saucer in his shoulder holster, two shrike-throwing knives in his boots, aderringer two-shot up his sleeve, garrotte wire in his watch, and three stun greanades concealed in variouse pockets. Anything else, Butler?”

“I’m right there with you, darlin’. Unless you step on a landmine, in which case I’m way back in the Operations Room.”

“Hit that back-stabber where it hurts, right in the ambition.”
