Book Review: Artemis Fowl

Synopsis: Twelve-year-old Artemis Fowl is a millionaire, a genius—and, above all, a criminal mastermind. But even Artemis doesn't know what he's taken on when he kidnaps a fairy, Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon Unit. These aren't the fairies of bedtime stories—they're dangerous! Full of unexpected twists and turns,Artemis Fowl is a riveting, magical adventure.

Thoughts: Not sure if anyone here has ever seen the anime Black Butler but it's main character is a rich twelve-year-old who runs an underground business that involves quite a bit of supernatural. When I first read the synopsis for Artemis Fowl I immediately thought of Black Butler's Ciel Phantomhive and knew I had to read this book.
The great Ciel Phantomhive!
I wasn't disappointed. 
Artemis is every bit what I expected him to be and more and I absolutely love this tiny, sassy genius! Despite being the villain of the story (he's kidnapping fairies!) I wanted him to come out on top so badly! This book was just too good! With a fun writing narrative that kept me smiling and many twists and turns I honestly didn't expect, capitulated by the tense do-or-don't at the end...I loved this book!
And, on a side note, for the more general audience, this is practically Judy Hop's continued career from Zootopia (if she was fairy of course). Either or, well worth the read!

Content: Aside from some rude humor concerning dwarves there were a few uses of the words D*** and H***. Being originally published in Ireland where these words are not seen as problematic it all boils down to a culture difference and whether or not the reader is comfortable with such language. Otherwise, a clean read for all ages and a brilliant adventure to boot!
