    What I love about Artemis Fowl is that, unlike Harry Potter, good things don't just happen to him because he was born special. Things happen his way because he's smart - he thinks ahead and he always out-plans his opponent. And he's just a kid. I've always loved books about an invincible kid hero. (think: Ender) But don't read these books looking for Ender. :-) Artemis is a criminal who makes just enough truly good decisions to keep him interesting all the way through.

The first book was a little harder for me to get into. Navigating the world of not-like-Tinkerbell fairies and Artemis' mind was so odd. (And it was on audio - maybe that made the difference.) But when I picked this one up (I skipped the 2nd by mistake.) I was familiar with the Artemis Fowl world, and the cast of characters. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole book; it was a fast read and hard to put down.

    The Eternity Code is the third installment of the Artemis Fowl series. It was so freaking good! So much action, twists, turns, and death! I also just really love Artemis as a character - but I think I might have a new favorite: MULCH! Okay, so I'm not going to lie.. this book definitely took me on a whirlwind kind of adventure.

I definitely almost cried during some scenes but I was so happy with the overall turnout. I'm still shocked that Artemis is around 13 years old and outsmarting so many people. I loved the ending of this book though. He basically told me what would happen if they did something that he didn't want. They did it still. Now I can't wait to see evil kid genius again! Or whoever he will be after that memory swipe. Overall, the action was jam packed. The "deaths" were almost heartbreaking. The friendships that were formed or getting a stronger bond were amazing. I love Artemis and Butler together. Then there's Holly who should really stop changing her mind on healing people. That girl needs a break! Mulch is my favorite because he insults people from time to time. I need more and I really need the next book!

The Eternity Code is 13 year old anti-hero Artemis Fowl’s 3rd adventure, and perhaps his most exciting yet. In this story, Artemis has made a high tech gadget, using stolen fairy technology-decades ahead of its time. It holds the secret to the underground fairy world. When American business owner Jon Spiro steals it, and Artemis is kidnapped, the “usual gang” must retrieve him and the gadget. Before it is too late. The problem? The gadget, and Artemis are being held in the Spiro Needle- an impossibly tall skyscraper- and the most secure in the country. Captain Holly Short (The fairy), Mulch Diggums (The dwarf) and Juliet Butler (the body guard-in training) must break into the Spiro-Needle and free Artemis and his gadget. It will be much harder then it sounds… This book is packed with Action, adventure, friendship, and a smart joke will be found on almost every page. There are many twist’s and turn’s, and this tale will not make sense unless the previous books have been read. A Superb Read, and very enjoyable.

    4 stars "The world will remember the name of Artemis Fowl." This book had me engrossed. Though not as good as the first one this was still a masterpiece. The action, character development and ingenious designs of the boy genius had me on the edge of my seat. Will be forever grateful for this series.

    I loved The Arctic Incident so much that this was a bit of a letdown as the follow-up. Having said that, it was a very entertaining book. Even though I have a paper copy, I picked up the audiobook narrated by a favorite British actor of mine, Nathaniel Parker. He narrated the heck out of it. I loved his various accents, everything from Irish to New Yorker.

Having said that, it was a very entertaining book. Even though I have a paper copy, I picked up the audiobook narrated by a favorite British actor of mine, Nathaniel Parker. He narrated the heck out of it. I loved his various accents, everything from Irish to New Yorker. Artemis is still being a criminal genius, but his conscience is being impacted by his father's return and new lease on life, and his association with the Faery people. When his latest scheme results in a tragic outcome to one of his beloved companions and powerful fae technology falling into the hands of a megalomanic, immoral tech billionaire, he has his work cut out for him getting it back. I still love the concept of a teenage super-genius would-be villain. I like that Artemis is still antiheroic without being sociopathic or downright evil. His character has grown and it makes him more interesting. I love his bodyguard, Domovoi Butler, so some things that happened to him weren't my favorite. His sister, Juliet has a much larger role. She's a fun character. Very much a late-teenaged girl, but also with a genetic and upbringing that makes her a lethal and capable bodyguard. I'm a sucker for anything Faerie, so those part definitely appealed. I didn't think Holly's role was as impactful, but Mulch Diggums is always a hilarious character. He's a bit disgusting, if I'm honest, but still lots of fun. I will say this, Colfer knows how to create some reprehensible villains. He always makes me laugh, but at the same time, there is a chilling undercurrent when you consider that these people are wanting to do terrible things to a teenaged boy (even one as annoying as Artemis Fowl). Arno Blunt is rather like the evil version of Butler, but much less awesome or cool. In other words, he's no match! This book has some enjoyable spy action scenes and faerie happenings, which I appreciated. I think I was just so impressed with the last book, that it seemed to fall short for me. I can't say too strongly how much I will miss Butler taking more of a physical role in the books, if what has happened in this one affects future books like it seems it will. You know I will keep reading this series. Overall rating: 3.5/5.0 stars.

    “And one more thing. About my name — Artemis — you were right. In London, it is generally a female name, after the Greek goddess of archery. But every now and then a male comes along with such a talent for hunting that he earns the right to use the name. I am that male. Artemis the hunter. I hunted you.” Oh, Artemis ! You're such a devious genius little creature and you have my heart for that because why ? YOU JUST MAKE ME CRY The third book in this installment make me fond of these characters much more.

I love how the characters development towards each other. How the finally realized, they aren't enemies and so close enough to call as 'friends'. But oh how, they're different species (Mud People and the People) and for that, the secrets and revelation of identity could put a threat towards each other. “When the moment comes, will you take your chance to be a hero?” This book have A LOT of whoa-i-didn't-see-that-coming moments. It's really hard to put the book down, knowing every scene is keep going on fast pace motion. It's a really a fun and amazing ride throughout the book. Other than that, the emotional wave at the very last chapter. It's just so undeniable not to shed any tears because really, I AM IN LOVE WITH THESE CHARACTERS. “I never tell anyone exactly how clever I am. They would be too scared.” Oh, stop with that drama queen Artemis hahaha, you're just always get me knock off with all those plans. “Together we will be unstoppable.” and to sums up, I AM TOTALLY SCARED OF WHAT WILL BECOMING OF ARTEMIS.

After having read the past books, this one is my favorite because it has well written humor and a great plot that keeps you hooked from the beginning.

After having read the past books, this one is my favorite because it has well written humor and a great plot that keeps you hooked from the beginning. The series is about Artemis Fowl, a young criminal genius that comes in contact with the fairies that live below ground. On this book, the author uses great imagination when he makes Artemis use the fairy technology he stole in the first book to create something he calls a C-Cube, a piece of technology far beyond ours that lets you control everything that is on the web. Artemis goes to Chicago in hopes of extending his founds by selling it to businessman Jon Spiro. The author introduces us the plot when Spiro steals the Cube and makes us even more hooked into it when Spiro's bodyguard shoots Butler (Artemis' bodyguard and friend). This becomes a problem, but Artemis manages to freeze Butler and uses help from fairy officer Holly Short to then revive him. Artemis then asks Holly Short and his fairy friends to help him regain the Cube by entering Jon Spiro's top head security building. This is when the story begins to get exciting, since the best part is how Artemis' plan just fits right in with every single aspect and detail of what happens, and the author made a great job by making Artemis' plan just hit you in the gut when it all works out. In the end, Artemis manages to get into the top security vault and regains the Cube, and Eoin brings even more justice into the story when Artemis bankrupts Spiro's company in the process. The reader feels as if all he has read is gone when Artemis gets his mind wiped out, making all memories of fairies disappear. In the end however, the author fills us with hopes of reading the next book when yet another of Artemis' great schemes will make him regain it in the future. I recommend this book for everyone, since it really is a good read and when you (or at least I did) finish reading it, you will just wish that it goes on.

    For those of you who have read Eoin Colfer's series about Artemis Fowl, you will understand the possibility for addiction. That is also true for those who have read J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series of books and Lemony Snicket's books written by Lemony Snicket and Brent Helquist. You read one book and the author transports you to a realm that is far away and filled with wonder. You do not have to be a child or young adult to be drawn in.

You read one book and the author transports you to a realm that is far away and filled with wonder. You do not have to be a child or young adult to be drawn in. That is the case for me with Eoin Colfer's books. Books 3 and 4 of the series, The Eternity Code and The Opal Deception, feature Artemis and his bodyguard, Butler, about to pull off the largest technology coup - to sell a technologically advanced computer made with fairy electronics. This is to be his last illegal deed in order to become legitimate as his father has requested. However, it all goes wrong and Butler almost pays the ultimate price. Artemis agrees to undergo a mind swipe in order to receive a "healing" for Butler. In the next book, Artemis goes up against Opal Koboi, a fairy genious and criminal, after having his memories restored about the fairy people. He must save the secrecy and existence of the fairy people from the "mud people" or humans that Opal is determined to expose the fairy people and world to. Both books are another example of the excellent writing skills of Colfer! Although the books were released in 2009, netgalley.com is offering them for review in anticipation of the final book in the series release date of July 2012. I find them to be timeless classics of children's fantasy.

    The Eternity Code is the strongest book in the series so far. Artemis has changed from the villainous mastermind 12-year old we met in the first book, but a lot of the things in his life has changed. He has family back, he has friends, and most importantly Artemis has grown a lot as a person: he has developed a conscience. None of which would have been possible if wasn't for fair-folk in the Lower Element Holly, Folly, Root, and of course Mulch.

None of which would have been possible if wasn't for fair-folk in the Lower Element Holly, Folly, Root, and of course Mulch. But even with all of that, Artemis is not ready to let go of his criminal dealing entirely. And his hubris costs him big time. Let's just say there were some tears spilled over this book. The plot was simply riveting and I think this is definitely the best book by far, not just in terms of characters, but also writing quality. It's almost as if it's growing more mature alongside the main character. The end is wrapped up neatly - I'm guessing this was supposed to be the last book originally. And it ends on a good note if this is where you want to finish. I will go on reading the series from here. I do have a couple of questions: a few of times Butler uses his influence to prod Artemis onto the right path? Why hasn't he done so before to keep Artemis from his evil schemes in the first place? If Artemis is a genius, then why hasn't he tested out of school? He could be doing college level work instead of being forced to spend time in a learning environment beneath him and perhaps spend time with people his own age in some other capacity?

    So far, my favorite in the series. Artemis has managed to restore both of his parents not only to the land of the living, but to health. There's a down side--Dad is a reformed man, more concerned about family than wealth, so Artemis must control his shenanigans. He decides to have one last caper . . .

Artemis has managed to restore both of his parents not only to the land of the living, but to health. There's a down side--Dad is a reformed man, more concerned about family than wealth, so Artemis must control his shenanigans. He decides to have one last caper . . . Unfortunately, he tries to extort money from one or the most ruthless industrialists in the world, which has the very bad effect of inadvertently putting fairy technology (far more advanced than anything humans have) in the hands of someone who is both tech savvy and of low moral character. So Artemis and his frienemies in the LEPRecon service must recover the technology and set a false trail so that all forget that fairies existed. Interestingly, in his repeated contact with the LEPRecon staff, Artemis has grown from a spoiled brat with criminal tendencies to a pretty likable, admirable human being. But Butler, Artemis' longtime friend and bodyguard, is nearly killed, and he is willing to do anything in order for the fairies to use their healing powers on Butler--including undergoing a mind wipe, meaning that Artemis and Butler will forget all about fairies' existence. This creates a moral conundrum--if Artemis forgets fairies, what will happen to the moral sense that has awakened in him because of the fairies? Interesting stuff--complex yet not hard to follow, a fast read, great action, and many chuckles. Worth reading even if you don't know the other books in the series.

    Mulch is the best supporting character in the series. He is witty, clever and shady as hell, but still lovable. The kleptomaniac dwarf stole the show in this book. Artemis fowl decides to build a mini-super computer, C Cube, using the fairy technology. But the plan goes awry when he underestimates an enemy. And the C cube ends up in the hands of Criminal.

    Having read books one to six, I have always liked the Eternity Code best in the Artemis Fowl series. It shows Artemis at his best and most interesting: still cold, still calculating, but beginning to doubt himself and his motives, on the cusp of the redemption journey that takes up the rest of the series. The balance between Artemis’s old criminal ways and his new take on life is just right in the Eternity Code, as on either side he swings too much one way or the other.

The balance between Artemis’s old criminal ways and his new take on life is just right in the Eternity Code, as on either side he swings too much one way or the other. It’s the first time he is really conflicted, making it a milestone in his character development. As for the plot itself, it’s as good as any in the series, with a couple of big twists, packed with jokes (though maybe a little too many about farting) and a sufficiently slimy, wily villain that is definitely not Opal Koboi. We also see Juliet at her least irritating, as her vain teenager/dumb muscle role is toned down, whilst Artemis’s relationship with Butler is explored more deeply, which helps to humanise them both. On the fairy side of things, Holly and Foaly are on form and Mulch’s Mafia time was a change of pace that added real, immediate danger. The humanity-bashing is also lighter than in later books. There is less focus on the green message and very little patronising from the fairies. The villains, excepting Pex and Chips, are less comic (when compared to Kronski and Opal in her more insane moments) and, naturally, it has the infinite advantage of featuring Root before book four, in which he got (view spoiler)[misty-eyed and sympathetic in book four in preparation for his death (hide spoiler)] . Finally, for me, the best bit had to be the parody of ‘savage’ racial stereotyping, when ‘Nuru’ meets Bobby, the Kenyan warrior with Nikes and a mobile phone. I crack up every time.

    Adventure three in the Artemis Fowl series. (Audio book review) Is it possible that I enjoy these books more with each installment? I think so, because - for me - I love the characters and each installment seems to focus a little more on the characters, now that the world has been created and the fairy laws don't need constant explanation. Plus, is it possible that Artemis himself is turning into more of a true hero? (Well, will Artemis *ever* be a true hero... that's questionable... Adventure three in the Artemis Fowl series.

I think so, because - for me - I love the characters and each installment seems to focus a little more on the characters, now that the world has been created and the fairy laws don't need constant explanation. Plus, is it possible that Artemis himself is turning into more of a true hero? (Well, will Artemis *ever* be a true hero... that's questionable... but I definitely think there's a conscious starting to speak louder than ever inside his mastermind brain). Now that Artemis's father is rescued, Artemis knows he'll have one last hurrah before he has two parents watching his every move. But what should be a simple job turns deadly wrong when Artemis is outwitted by the man *he's* trying to outwit! Things suddenly go from bad to worse when Artemis's new computer creation, The C Cube (outfitted with fairy technology and more powerful than any human computer) is stolen by Jon Spiro. Now, not only is Artemis in danger — but, if Spiro is able to hack the technology, so will be the worlds of both human and fairies. What I loved more than the plot (which was quite entertaining) was the growing relationships between Artemis and Butler, and Artemis, Butler and the fairy folk. Those first chapters with Artemis and Butler are truly touching. A side note about the audio recording — this book includes a whole new host of characters making for a delightful array of new accents: American, Australian, etc. — all which Parker handles beautifully! A feast for the ears, indeed!

    Two words "Mo Digence". Laughed so hard when I read that. Just about the most memorable parts of Eternity Code are usually attributed "Mo", it still gets me. Now back to my review. Artemis is almost a fully metamorphosed character, compared to the snobbish(still is just not openly), insulting, amoral and friendless villain debuted. His ongoing verbal and habitual assumptive tit-tats with Butler are more akin now to life long friends not employer to employee. These and other issue form Two words "Mo Digence".

Artemis is almost a fully metamorphosed character, compared to the snobbish(still is just not openly), insulting, amoral and friendless villain debuted. His ongoing verbal and habitual assumptive tit-tats with Butler are more akin now to life long friends not employer to employee. These and other issue form the crux of the Eternity Code's plots. It is a shame really that while I don't like to divulge too much details. The most comforting regularities of Artemis' associations is stripped, relatively early. This draws forth a new, I think, improved Artemis. Some semblance of moral fiber(don't kid yourself, it's still Artemis Fowl) with a deeper comprehension of the fallout his schemes inflict. Not ready to just let things lie. This could have have been called "Artemis Fowl: The Heist" most of the immediate plot revolves around a caper. To say that there are some liberal concoctions of "technology" is just understood. Its an Artemis Fowl book after all. I did find reading about "megabytes" a bit jarring. There are some dubious assuages to complex psychological and cultural stereotypes that I didn't take keenly to not to say they were wrong(maybe,maybe not). Just made me feel uncomfortable and in the case of Pex and Chips, disbelieving. The ending is a bit emotional and sets up what I will as Artemis Reloaded. Are we even ready for that?

    I think the strongest title in the series to date, once again Artemis and his cronies get in over their heads, abuse fairy technology, drive criminal masterminds up the wall, nearly get their heads put on platters, and have fun in the process! I particularly like how the characters have grown since the first book, but in this one some changes took place that will likely affect future books rather drastically. Some for the better some for the worse I suspect.

One thing I love about this series is that it is good natured fun, not tied down by politics, sex and all the other vices adult fiction seems to feel it needs to be able to justify itself. A great read whether you are 10 or 80 and I think this has easily earned a big 5 stars!

    Artemis Fowl utterly amazes me. I love the unexpected turns; I never predicted any of Artemis' ingenious schemes. The third one so far is my favorite. Even though the book generally gives the readers a thrilling, fantastical vibe, the relationship between Artemis and Butler, as well as that between Artemis and Holly, touch my heart greatly. Eoin Colfer's style will not pale in comparison to J.K. Rowling's. His diction is beyond accurate, flooding me with delight and other emotions when appropria Artemis Fowl utterly amazes me.

The clever plot takes me away to another realm that I did not know existed. A must-read for everyone in their lifetime.

    If there's something I love is a book in which a group of mismatched characters tries (and succeed) to pull off an incredible heist ❤

    This 3rd book in the series finds Artemis in a bunch of trouble from his own making. A business deal involving Faerie technology goes bad - not only was Artemis outsmarted by Jon Spiro and the technology stolen (and thus, the Faerie People's secret in jeopardy), but Butler (his trusted bodyguard and only friend) was mortally wounded. Artemis must fess up to the People, get the technology back, and ask for the healing help of Captain Holly Short, yet again. This time, the price of his mistake wil This 3rd book in the series finds Artemis in a bunch of trouble from his own making.

I am really enjoying this series for middle schoolers. It has no bad language, no hormones, and the violence is typical of books in this age group. Artemis is such an interesting character that I admit I am hooked. I'm looking forward to getting my hands on the next book in the series to see what his next adventure will be.

    I wasn't quite as enthralled with the plot this time because most of it was sneaking around rather than action-packed like the Goblin uprising but the super emotional ending more than made up for any shortcomings.
