Any of you guy's ever read this series?

Artemis Fowl is a young adult series. From Wikipedia:

"Artemis Fowl is a series of novels written by Eoin Colfer, protangonizes a teenage genius who will sometimes resort to criminal behaviors, who is named Artemis Fowl II. Artemis Fowl, the main character, is a ruthless and extremely intelligent young (human) criminal whose main goal is the acquisition of money through a variety of often illegal schemes. There are many settings in the series, including Iceland, Siberia, Chicago, Germany, London, Taiwan, Morocco, France and various places in Ireland. One main setting that has been in all the books is the Lower Elements."

I love this series, its great.

I think I've only read 4 of the books, but they were great to read. Maybe, I'll download the digital copy when I get the chance.

I read it. I thought it was mostly cool, some parts made me think of it as a bit too young for my age at the time.. especially because I had been reading pendragon which is geared towards a younger crowd yet dealt with much more adult themes..

Never actually read it, though got a copy of the first book as a gift. It's around here somewhere. I'm reading the newest Kane Chronicles right now, but I've been thinking of giving Artemis Fowl a go since people seem to approve. If nothing else it'll hopefully help bridge the gap between now and Son of Neptune.

The series is great at explaining really cool technology of both Fowl and the Fairies. And Artemis Fowl himself is a goddamn Genius.

I'd love to get the newest book soon.

Hey, nothing wrong with a kids' book. Just ask J.K. Rowling. (horrid joke, I know.)

Better that people be reading SOMETHING than nothing. I meet so many people who don't read anything unless it's a magazine or they have to read it.

Yeah.. still a kids book.. but at least no nerd-fairies ._.
Dude, at first, yes it was a kids book, but when they lost on Veelox and then Quillan, that **** took a 180 degree turn, it wasn't a kid's book anymore, it was at least a young adult boook. I never finished the final book, got like 100 pages from the end but just stopped, haven't read a proper book since, for some reason i can only read e-books (might be bcause i'm on forums so much), should i finish those 100 pages or is it not worth it? Note: this is where Bobby and co. just start to invade the sanctum that everybody is in on new york in third earth.

Holyshit same.. I have the last book and only read half because life started getting busy.. I really really want to know what happens.. I'm going to re-read the last one. Patrick was one of my favs, man! I thought it took a big turn with Veelox.. just.. more mature.. more entertaining.

Dang, but yeah, i need to finish it. I still think that Patrick should've gotten his own proper book instead of being lumped together with the end-of-Halla ish they had going on, i wanted to see more of 3rd earth explored. I think spader was my favorite :laugh: but when he screwed up and got Press killed smh. Veelox definitely was a game changer just like SD said, and then the end of Black Water, man, that was emotional as hell. And don't even get me started on when Twig revealed that Ibara was actually a future of Veelox that **** hit me like a brick. One thing i didn't like about that was that we now know that Aja had to die in order for Ibara to happen, there was no way to save her smh, she was so cool too. I think my favorite books were The Lost City of Faar and The Reality Bug, probably just because they were set in the future and I love futuristic things.

I was just about to say the same thing. I reealllyy loved Vo in the second book.. Those two are my favourites, too.. and then the Quillan games were also interesting.. I really liked that world-concept. And yeah Aja was cool but I thought that it was necessary.. or rather.. noble so I didn't mind it. Good series, man. Real good.

Yeah, the quillan games was pretty good that ending caught me off guard though...wow, that and the pilgrim's of rayne have the same exact ending, that really pisses me off... oh and yeah, i recommend this series to anyone that is reading this thread, even though we've spoiled a good portion of the series lol.

Nah not really.. by the time they pick up the books and read through to the 6th one and stuff they'd have forgotten the names and stuff here. Cause really to someone who doesn't know.. words like "Quillan" and some of those names just sound like gibberish haha..

Lol, yeah i guess, but surely after lil while, they're gona start remembering some stuff and eventually peace it together, but oh well. Read the series people, you won't regret it! These are the only books I would pre-order and purchase day one and would be walking around the halls in middle school reading lol. When i was at school, i even kept em in the waldenbooks bag, well actually, i do that with all of my books, don't like em getting ruined.
