“Either that boy is the sanest creature on Earth, he thought, or he is so disturbed that our tests cannot even begin to scratch the surface.”

Summary

It’s Armageddon Time for Artemis Fowl

Opal Koboi, power-crazed pixie, is plotting to exterminate mankind and become fairy queen.

If she succeeds, the spirits of long-dead fairy warriors will rise from the earth, inhabit the nearest available bodies and wreak mass destruction. But what happens if those nearest bodies include crows, or deer, or badgers – or two curious little boys by the names of Myles and Beckett Fowl?

Yes, it’s true. Criminal mastermind Artemis Fowl’s four-year-old brothers could be involved in destroying the human race. Can Artemis and Captain Holly Short of the Lower Elements Police stop Opal and prevent the end of the world?

My Experiences

I actually didn’t read this book. But it is her for those Artemis Fowl fans.

Quotes

“I want you to know, my dear friend, that without you, I would not be the person I am today.” He leaned in close and whispered, “I was a broken boy, and you fixed me. Thank you.”


“Onscreen, Foaly rubbed his eyelids with his index fingers.
“Yeah, yeah. Here we go. Captain Short goes rogue once more. Hands up who’s surprised. Anyone?”


“Nobody’s death is impending.”
…”Well technically everyone’s death is impending.”


“Artemis Fowl will never be secondary.”

“I thought you were Artemis Fowl the Second?” said Holly.”


“Card five hundred and thirty-four,” repeated Artemis. “Of a series of six hundred standard inkblot cards. I memorized them during our sessions. You don’t even shuffle.”
Argon checked the number on the back of the card: 534. Of course. “Knowing the number doesn’t answer the question. What do you see?”
Artemis allowed his lip to wobble. “I see an ax dripping with blood. Also a scared child, and an elf clothed in the skin of a troll.”
“Really?” Argon was interested now.
“No. Not really. I see a secure building, perhaps a family home, with four windows. A trustworthy pet, and a pathway leading from the door into the distance. I think, if you check your manual, you will find that these answers fall inside healthy parameters.”
Argon did not need to check. The Mud Boy was right, as usual.”


“Don’t hate me forever, Arty,” whispered Holly. “I couldn’t bear that.”
