2.5 starsArtemis Fowl was kindly provided to me by Netgalley for Disney-Hyperion.Interested in more of my reviews? Visit my blog!This was admittedly quite a lot more fun than I had anticipated. Although, I do admit I would have enjoyed this much more a decade ago when this first came out (and I was of course a decade younger!) Artemis Fowl, a genius criminal mastermind, has a plan to restore his family's prior standing: he's going to steal a pot of gold. Artemis was quite funny and incredibly enjoyable but was an extremely immature humor at times (i.e. fairy flatulence was referenced frequently). I can definitely see the appeal and why this is so well loved by the younger crowd. Will I be continuing the series? Doubtful. Will I be recommending this series to my younger kids? Most definitely.
