Item description for Artemis Fowl (French Edition) by Eoin Colfer & Jean-Francois Menard...

Eoin Colfer describes his new book, Artemis Fowl, as "DieHard with fairies." He's not far wrong.Twelve-year-old Artemis Fowl is the most ingenious criminal mastermind inhistory. With two trusty sidekicks in tow, he hatches a cunning plot to divestthe fairyfolk of their pot of gold. Of course, he isn't foolish enough tobelieve in all that "gold at the end of the rainbow" nonsense. Rather, he knowsthat the only way to separate the little people from their stash is to kidnapone of them and wait for the ransom to arrive. But when the time comes to puthis plan into action, he doesn't count on the appearance of the extrasmall,pointy-eared Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon (Lower Elements PoliceReconnaisance) Unit--and her senior officer, Commander Root, a man (sorry, elf)who will stop at nothing to get her back.Fantastic stuff from beginning to end, Artemis Fowl is a rip-roaring,21st-century romp of the highest order. The author has let his imagination runriot by combining folklore, fantasy, and a fistful of high-tech funk in anoutrageously devilish book that could well do for fairies what Harry Potter hasdone for wizardry. But be warned: this is no gentle frolic, so don't be fooledby the fairy subject matter. Instead, what we have here is well-written,sophisticated, rough 'n' tumble storytelling with enough high-octane attitude tomake it a seriously cool read for anyone over the age of 10. --SusanHarrison

Reviews - What do customers think about Artemis Fowl (French Edition)?

Fantastic book, a must-read for fantasy fans!  Sep 9, 2008
I picked up Artemis Fowl from the library this past weekend (for the fifteenth time), and I must say, it is quite a good book. Eoin Colfer, the Irish author of the book, is a genius with an amazing imagination. It chronicles the tale of 12-year-old criminal mastermind Artemis Fowl, who has devised a scheme to rob the People, or fairies, of their gold in order to reclaim his family's billionaire status. His father has been deemed missing for the last several years, after he and 250,000 cans of cola aboard a ship were attacked by a stolen missile launched by the Russian Mafiya, who didn't want some westerner cutting in on their market. His mother is in a state of insanity, locked up in her bedroom night and day. In the course of Artemis's plan, he abducts LEPrecon (Lower Elements Police Reconnaissance) officer Captain Holly Short (notice my name :P) and holds her hostage in order to get the LEP's ransom fund. The rest of the People don't hold well with this and have many surprises for Artemis Fowl. I hope I didn't ruin the book for you, but why are you still reading this? Go buy this book now!
 
Artemis Fowl  Sep 8, 2008
Artemis Fowl is a genius. He's also a criminal master mind. He's also twelve. When faced with the loss of his family's fortune, he does what anyone would do. He kidnaps a fairy commando and holds her for ransom.

This is a great book for readers of all ages. While entertaining for most older elemtary school kids, the snappy dialog and and action packed plot twists make it a great read for adults too.
 
very exciting  Aug 14, 2008
This book was interesting and exciting. Artemis is a very believable character and made even funnier by the fact he is a child. Anyone that likes books on faeries and mystery will love this book.
 
More like an airport book for 12 year old boys  Aug 4, 2008
I feel duped by these reviews. This book would be perfect for my 11 year old cousin, but is by no means a great book for all ages as these reviews would indicate. It is very slapstick and dorky. You could read the whole thing in a day and forget it even sooner.
 
Artemis Fowl isn't foul but it ain't Shakespear  Jul 14, 2008
So I have finished reading Artemis Fowl and I am currently working on decoding he message at the bottom of the pages. The book itself is good. Eoin Colfer really takes an old subject like fairies and leprechauns and gives it a new twist. However the book is a little adolescent in it's nature, I suspect Colfer is trying to copy the success Ms. Rowling has had with Harry Potter by appealing to young people without offending their parents. The plots are compelling and original but the action is subdued. Colfer makes fun of himself by playfully catching himself before any vulgarities are written, trying to give the piece and off the cuff feel. All this aside I must say that I do recommend this book not only to children middle school and younger but also to adults who are looking for a quick read that is also entertaining. While it's not Shakespeare it is surprising the amount of emotional attachment that we feel towards the title character. Eoin gives us hints that Artemis has not yet revealed his true nature we shall see as Artemis grows up how he handles the responsibility of his knowledge of the People.
