Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer

Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer
(#59 on The Big Read. My combined score: 20)

artemis-fowlThis is the first book in a young-adult series featuring the character Artemis Fowl II, a teenage genius criminal. The novel was first published in  2001.

Writing: 6
Characters: 5
Story: 9
Total: 20 out of 30

Overall: I enjoyed the book. The narration was annoying and the characters are a bit stale but neither of those are likely to bother anyone in the target audience. And while there doesn’t seem to be any lesson learned or moral to the story it also isn’t offensive in any way.

Recommendations: I would readily recommend to any young reader, especially boys. It wouldn’t be in the top 10 books I would recommend but if they had already read the good stuff I would have no problem pointing them here.
