Publisher's Summary

The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Artemis Fowl, the explosive first novel in Eoin Colfer's best-selling Artemis Fowl series. Read by the actor Gerry O'Brien.
Twelve-year-old villain Artemis Fowl is the most ingenious criminal mastermind in history. His bold and daring plan is to hold a leprechaun to ransom.
But he's taking on more than he bargained for when he kidnaps Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon (Lower Elements Police Reconnaissance Unit). For a start, leprechaun technology is more advanced than our own. Add to that the fact that Holly is a true heroine and that her senior officer Commander Root will stop at nothing to get her back and you've got the mother of all sieges brewing!

Believe the hype - excellent antihero!

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 ....

Narration echoes

The book sounded like it was being narrated by a reverberating computer. It is very annoying to listen to and we turned it off immediately.
Upset that I wasted a credit.we are reading the story in paperback but wanted the audio for sleepy children.
