“If you were me, then I’d be you, and if I were you, then I’d hide somewhere far away.”


Artemis Fowl has constructed a supercomputer from stolen fairy technology. In the wrong hands it could be fatal for humans and fairies alike. But Artemis has a plan. He’s not going to use the computer – he’s just going to show it to an American businessman with Mafia connections. What could possibly go wrong?

My Experiences 

If you haven’t already figured it out, [let me tell you] a lot could go wrong by showing this computer to an American businessman with Mafia connections.  Now I love you Artemis when I say this, BUT YOU ARE INSANE! If you remember in the previous book with all the Russian Mafia thing, this is a BAD IDEA. I so wish I could spoil this book but I WON’T! 

*Hint* It has something to do with Butler*


“I never tell anyone exactly how clever I am. They would be too scared.”

“Listen to me, goblin. You’re stupid, let’s accept that and move on.”

“And one more thing. About my name — Artemis — you were right. In London, it is generally a female name, after the Greek goddess of archery. But every now and then a male comes along with such a talent for hunting that he earns the right to use the name. I am that male. Artemis the hunter. I hunted you.”

“A CD. How quaint. We have these in museums.”

“We’re being lead by an idiot with a crayon.”

“That was horrible. Horrible. That poor little guy.”
Pex was unrepentant. “Yeah, well, he asked for it. Calling us … all those things.”
But—buried alive! That’s like in that horror movie. Y’know — the one with all the horror.”
I think I saw that one. With all the words going up on the screen at the end?”
Yeah, that was it. Tell you the truth, those words kinda ruined it for me.”

“Jon Spiro had not hired Pex and Chips for their debating sills. In the job interview, they had only been set one task. A hundred applicants were handed a walnut and asked to smash it however they could. Only two succeeded. Pex had shouted at the walnut for a few minutes, then flattened it between his giant palms. Chips had opted for a more controversial method. He placed the walnut on the table, grabbed is interviewer by the ponytail, and used the man’s forehead to smash the nut. Both men were hired on the spot. They quickly established themselves as Arno Blunt’s most reliable leiutenants for in-house work. They were not allowed outside Chicago, as this could involve map reading, something Pex and Chips were not very good at.”

“The miracle of modern science. The LEP pours millions into your department, Foaly, and all you can do is send Mud Boys to the toilet.”

“Waitress: “And to drink?”
Artemis: “Spring water. Irish, if you have it. And no ice, please. As your ice is no doubt made from tap water, which rather defeats the purpose of spring water.”
