The Eternity Code (Artemis Fowl, Book 3) Paperback – July 14, 2009 by Eoin Colfer (Author)

I choose this rating because the book is good. What I like about the book is that Artemis Fowl is going straight as soon as he pulls off the most brilliant criminal feat of his career. .. At least, that’s the plan when he attempts to sell his C Cube, a supercomputer built from stolen fairy technology, to Jon Spiro, one of the most dangerous businessmen in the world. But Spiro springs a trap stealing the C Cube and mortally injuring Butler. Artemis’s only hope of saving his loyal bodyguard is to employ fairy magic; so once again he must contact his old rival, Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon fairy police. It is going to take a miracle to save Butler, and Artemis’s luck may have just run out. .. What I dislike about the book is that I wanted to read more of it. I would recommend this book to other people. Check it out!

Amazon.com Review In this third installment to Eoin Colfer’s funny, fast-paced, fairy-filled adventure series, boy genius and arch criminal Artemis Fowl once again can’t resist plotting the perfect crime–and, once again, he can’t keep from stirring up so much trouble that the fate of the entire fairy world teeters in the balance. The once hard-boiled Artemis has softened a bit between his bestselling debut and the seat-of-your-pants Arctic Incident, and that trend continues in The Eternity Code: He’s still plotting for a billion-dollar-plus payoff for the Fowl family, but now his enemies are human (chiefly Jon Spiro, a ruthless businessman Artemis tries to blackmail using stolen fairy technology) and he has to turn to his old adversary-turned-friend Captain Holly Short and cutpurse dwarf Mulch Diggums for help. The dialogue and action prove as smart and page-turning as ever this time around, with Artemis struggling to bring his faithful bodyguard Butler back from the dead before racing Mission Impossible-style to triple-cross the double-crossing Spiro. Colfer’s young antihero might be getting more likeable all the time, but that hasn’t taken the edge off the Tom-Clancy-meets-Harry-Potter action. Artemis has to agree to a memory-erasing “mind wipe” from the People after helping them recover their technology, but only a foolish fan would count Artemis out after this blockbuster “final heist.” Book four can’t come soon enough….

The Eternity Code (Artemis Fowl, Book 3) Paperback – July 14, 2009 by Eoin Colfer (Author) Review

Artemis Fowl – The Eternity Code is the third Artemis Fowl book. This is clearly a teen book and not aimed at adults, but I discovered it on a list of books for “those who were going through Harry Potter withdrawals. “It isn’t Harry Potter by any stretch of the imagination. And it isn’t perfect. But it is very readable and with the exception of the over-the-top dwarf character (Mulch Diggums) it is constructed well enough that the story is fun and surprising. I found the second book in the series slightly more enjoyable than the first. This one was good as well, but “killing” characters that do not end up dead at the end of the book is becoming a bit of a literary crutch for Mr. Colfer. I’ve read through the third book now and have ordered the fourth. They are not great works of art, but certainly readable and worth buying. -Read Reviews-

Having read the previous Artemis Fowl books, This book makes a great addition. In book one, Artemis Fowl, I hated Artemis, but eventually grew to admire him for his cunning, and intelligence. Later on I realized something. I was rooting for Artemis to win! For the first time, I actually wanted the "bad guy" to succeed. Then I later grew to realize that, maybe Artemis wasn’t such a bad guy after all. In book two I liked Artemis more and more. Holly also appealed to me, as a spunky fairy who tends to disobey orders for the greater good, I found her to be a quality character. I watched Artemis and Holly slowly bond, and began rooting for them to become friends, I also found it very touching to see how much Artemis cared for his father. Also with the addition of the odd/hilarious dwarf named Mulch, the book had me laughing aloud at parts! In book 3, It became clear that Holly and Artemis were becoming friends. I enjoyed the book thoroughly, but I became very sad towards the end when Artemis had the mind wipe. I could see he was becoming a much better person. I was upset to see Artemis turn back into a criminal, snarky, arrogant teen. In this book I was touched to see him come back, I was very pleased by this book, and happy to see Opal Koboi’s plans foiled. I mourned the death of Commander Root, I was touched by his final words. –TheReviewer
