"Smartly written, funny...engaging mix of James Bond and fairyland with heavy doses of technology for the wired among us." (Buffalo News)
"The action is fast and furious, the humor is abundant, characterizations are zany, and the boy genius works wonders, all of which add up to another wild ride for Artemis' fans." (Booklist)

Hilarious as always
This book definitely made me laugh, quite a bit. All the Artemis Fowl books are hilarious, and this one is no exception. I know that they are supposed to be kids books, but they quite enjoyable even if you're an adult! The plots of kind of light weight but the characters really make the story.
