Artemis Fowl

I recently finished the first AMAZING book in the Artemis Fowl series. I was spellbound from start to finish by the 12-year-old genius and his diabolical plan to separate an entire fairy police force from a large chunk of their gold.

The plot is fast-paced and punchy, with a dry sense of humour and great characters. The descriptions of fairy technology are amazing and the storyline is great. During Butler’s battle against a giant troll I bit my fingernails so much they bled and and I may or may not have cried when(SPOILER ALERT!) the bio-bomb hit Fowl manor.

Overall, this is a great book for 8-12 year olds and I would definitely recommend it.
