Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer actually does have a lot of people with magic and awesomeness. Artemis Fowl, boy genius, wanted to contact the fairies to get gold for his father, who had been kidnapped by the Mafia. But the fairies wouldn’t willingly give the gold to him, so he decides to kidnap a police elf named Holly Short. Then the fairie people go to great lengths to get their elf back.
My favorite part of the book is when Butler has to fight a troll. At first he is losing and he gets gored, but after that an elf heals him before he dies. Then he gets up in his knight’s armour looks around and sees the troll about to smoosh his sister. He takes out his mace and shotgun and charges toward the troll and just destroys it. I liked that part, because of all the action, craziness, and bravery. Those are the things that I like in my books. It also made me feel energized and excited to see what happened next. So if you like being energized and excited you should definitely read this.
I think this book’s greatest value is the way it was written. All of the words that Eoin Colfer uses makes vivid pictures in your mind. So it makes you feel like you are with the characters instead of just sitting there reading a book. Even though illegal may be faster, it will eventually come and stab you in the back.
