Whenever I mention this novel , maximum friends of mine say that it's one of their favourite and I won't blame them. It's actually amazing.
Artemis Fowl is a story about an Irish boy , Artemis Fowl , who belongs from a criminal family from Dublin , lives in a mansion and has a personal secretary called Butler who was appointed to him the second he was born in the family.
What's special about that boy ? Well he is literally the most evil genius present , who would do anything to be the best.
Now Artemis or "Arty" had his suspicion that there exists mythical creatures below us , near the core of the planet 🌎. Well , in order to get more proof , he travels to China where an old fairy , disguised as an old woman , gives him the most important book among the fairies, elfs , dwarfs. Artemis translates the language and comes to know everything about the world that lives beneath the foundation of his mansion. So the great Artemis devices a plan to trap one of the creature and in order to gain more , he would blackmail that creature for gold.
In the meanwhile, down below , we have Captain Holly Short , waking up , going to work at the LEP ( Lower Element Police , the police community ). Like any other day , she is given a chance to go on the "surface" for a mission. Holly lives for such missions. So as ususal , Holly reports to one of the shuttle bay and is sent of to Spain , where a troll attack has happened.
While trying to solve everything, Artemis captures her and takes her with him back to Dublin and imprisons her. Hence , the unlikely friendship/enemity strikes gold. Now if there is ever a situation where if any LEP officer is ever taken hostage , there is a hostage fund specially kept. Artemis was basically behind this.
So Commander Root and technician Foaly make plans to cause minimal harm to Artemis and get Holly back without emptying their hostage fund. And from here onwards starts the epic journey of Artemis and his involvement in possible every major attack in Lower Element.
Artemis Fowl combines mystical creatures + technology no one can imagine about + round the world trip. And to imagine all of this is a hats off effort. I'm at the 4th book and by a mistake which i have never made in my entire life , i missed onto the 3rd book. I'll buy that later tho.
If you love Harry Potter , Percy Jackson or any novel involving magical invasions and powers and everything, please please do read this novel. AMAZING!!!! This novel has been on my wishlist and I finally got to read it this year ! Plus it's helping with my GRE prep for the graceful words a 13 year old boy says much ahead of his age.
I can guarantee you it's completely worth your time. Do read.
Also sorry for not writing any post in the recent times. I've been busy with my internship and GRE prep.
