by Eoin ColferThis had me thinking if humans really are living up to their full potential. If these Fairies do exist, then comparing comparing us to them, we are just throwing stones at each other. I think their inventions are amazing, and how Eoin describes how they work could make a person believe these inventions could exists, like the iris cam, small electronics that you wear as contacts that can record film and sound, can change your views by zooming in and out, thermal imaging, night vision, and even x-ray vision! Another invention is the bio-bomb, or 'blue rinse' as the fairies call it, which destroys all living tissue, and not touching anything else, it uses light as its weapon. Enough of the inventions, though, the story line is amazing, including Elves, Dwarves, Goblins, and other species of Fairies. Artemis Fowl himself is the most interesting person in the world, I'm always wondering what is going on his head, with an IQ that could be over Albert Einstein, "I hold Einstein with respect, most of his theories were correct." Artemis had said this in the interview of The Artemis Fowl files. I think people would read these books just so they can see what he says next. In book one, he was seen as an evilmastermind by the fairy people, and had plans only to make himself rich, what they did not understand was that his mother was insane and sick, and nobody knew anything about his father at the time. during the book, Artemis had to kidnap a Fairy and use it as a ransom for his money, or, more accurately, his gold, and that is how he had his first encounter with Holly Short, the Lower Elements Police Recon officer, or LEP-Recon for short. In the second book, the Arctic Incident, is where they make peace, more or less, when Artemis retrieves an email stating that the Russian Mafia has taken hostage of his father, at the same time, the fairies are noticing that Goblins are illegally getting their hands on human technology, and they suspect Artemis is helping them, when they find he isn't, they make a deal that Artemis will help them find out who is helping the Goblin gangs, in return, they must promise Artemis the support of the LEP to help retrieve his father. In the next book, Artemis swears he will go good after one more plot, which is to have an illegal deal with Jon Spiro, a man who owns a company and has a shady side to his past, but then things went wrong, Spiro had a trap and stole what Artemis was dealing with, in these turn of events, Artemis gets out of there alive, for a price his one true friend has to pay. now in this adventure, Artemis seeks help from his fairy friends to retrieve the device that Spiro stole, for the device could spread a war between humanity and the Fairies, but the price for the help of his friends is a mind wipe of all of the memories that includes any fairy related subject. In the fourth book, The Opal Deception, shows the old evil Artemis Fowl in a scheme of stealing a famous painting, at the same time, an old enemy comes back to seek revenge on all of Artemis' friends and Artemis himself. In the fifth shows new characters, where a girl is just as intelligent as Artemis, and she seeks to be noticed for the genius she is, but she does not know about the fairy people she is about to harm in her plan and it is up to Artemis to stop and save a whole rediscovered fairy species. All of these books i recommend to people who would like to read about fairy tales in a realistic shade to the 21st century society.
