I always get a bit nervous getting a "Bestseller", as they can be a crushing disappointment if it's just hype. I am delighted to report, this book is actually very good.
My 10 year old struggled to read the paper version, as it is a doorstop of a book, so we got the audiobook as well. Both boys were blown away. The fairies are not the gossamer, sparkly Disney Princess type. They are gritty, tough, trained SAS officers who wipe human's brains and generally think us stupid, cruel and slow. Enter Artemis Fowl, the 12 year old genius ready to take them down ...
This book is absolutely peppered with fantastic cliff hangers, and it became one of my favorite games to wait for one during the car journey (".... something was coming. It didn't sound good ....") and then announce it was time to turn off. Que howls of complaint from the back seat :-) Well, you have to have some fun don't you ....

It's a good book with some fun characters and new mythologies. Looking forward to following the series and I'm an older reader :-)
