Artemis Fowl series

by Eoin Colfer

This is a series about a young genius who is a criminal mastermind.  He figures out that there are fairies living on this planet, and he decides to kidnap one for ransom. But has he bitten off more than he can chew? These fairies aren't at all docile! Somehow, though, from then on, Artemis and the fairies are always thrown into adventures together!

I read the blurbs of several and they just didn't look good. I don't understand why anyone would want to read about a bunch of evil people.

Who wouldn't want to read about a bunch of evil people? Especially when they main character's a genius? Evil people are fine if taken in moderation. Don't take this the wrong way; I just mean they're interesting.

Artemis Fowl is very well written. And original- not a rip-off of other good books, but creative and fresh.

I see your point. Actually, I decided shortly after my post that it might not be so bad after all and actually read one... It was pretty good. I'm actually considering reading some more.

I like these books a lot!!!!! They're soooo funny! Artemis is really cool but he isn't evil; he's a genius. There's a difference. I love the characters Foaly and Commander Root. I like sarcastic books. READ THESE BOOKS!!!!!!!! InnocentCoolWinkKissMoney mouthLaughing
