    Action Action Action That s the name of the game in Eoin Colfer s The Arctic Incident.Child prodigy and criminal mastermind, Artemis Fowl is searching for his kidnapped father He needs the help of the fairy police, and as it so happens, they need him Law and lawbreakers work together in this fast paced, humorous action fantasy Eoin Colfer has created fun fairyland for the 21st century It s a nice, soft blend of technology and fantasy, not too heavy on either count The scope of his world is rather limited to Fowl s criminal human underworld and a sort of cartoonish MI5 police bomb squad fairy agency We re talkin smart pixies with fire power Though the scope may be narrow, it helps to keep the plot super tight, and I ain t complaining about that I could however complain that constant Go GO GO can be just as bad as a book that goes nowhere Too much of anything often dulls the senses Later on in the book I found myself zoning out during the non stop action This is book 2 in Colfer s Artemis Fowl series and many of the same characters reappear That s understandableto a point For instance, the ground munching dwarf Mulch Diggums, a character I thought fresh and inventive when reading the first book, is used again and I felt it was unnecessary You expect the main characters to return, but Diggums is not a principle player in the grand scheme of things He s a fun character, but I think Colfer should ve come up with something new there, otherwise it s like a comedian coming back for an encore and repeating the same jokes.Perhaps I could ve given this 4 stars for the fun factor, but aside from the complaints above, I also felt that the repetitious feel of the plot from book one to book two was too much However, if you loved book one and are yearning for of the same, you ll find it in spades in The Arctic Incident.

    The Artemis Fowl books really are perfect for a quick, easy read Which is good, because I ll be doing the twenty four hour readathon tomorrow, and I really don t want to get burnt out on reading The Arctic Incident develops Artemis as a sympathetic figure, having left behind his attempts to exploit the People the fairies , and feeling some remorse over how he handled things in the first book He s also focused on rescuing his father, missing for two years, convinced he s still alive Meanwhile, the fairies are in trouble because of a plot from within their species Artemis is suspected to be involved, and is taken in for questioning The result He and the fairies become allies both in dealing with the threats and rescuing his father.There s none of the slightly patronising this is not an adult book stuff, so it ends up being a purely fun adventure story with all our favourite characters from the first book.I think my favourite part was getting to see Grub and Trouble again it s nice that he doesn t create background characters that would, in effect, people the book with Redshirts It d be easy to do if you weren t keeping track of characters it doesn t seem that important

    For me, as an adult, the Artemis Fowl series is a guilty pleasure.I get a kick out of Artemis, smart beyond reason youth he is, and like the relationship between him and his bodyguard, Butler.Throw in the fantastical underworld of fairies, dwarfs, and other magical creatures and there are a lot of options for a fast paced, fun story.In the second installment, Artemis finds himself in boarding school now that his mother has recovered and begun to assert rules on the boy.Not to be stopped, Artemis works to frustrate those who try to control or understand him The book, though, is about Artemis trying to find his father and he has a strong lead in arctic Russia.As he plans to set out, the Fairies capture him in an attempt to learn who on the above ground world is smuggling weapons Artemis, after book one antics is the prime suspect.The two groups work together to help one another and another great adventure is had.

    There s nothing that attracts me , than a genius without the glasses Especially if the geek looks like this For those who don t know this hottie, he s Chuck Zachary Levi However, if the geek involved is 13 years old and is a criminal mastermind, plus fantasizing that he would grow up faster than a normal human being would, well thats just plain pedophilia Well it s not actually that bad, if you ll become an instant billionaire and with him you could rule the world together But still it s no excuse to commit pedophilia.I bet Artemis Fowl would look exactly like a younger version of Chuck, but take off the sneakers and make him wear loafers.Artemis Fowl The Arctic Incident, is the second book of the Artemis Fowl Series by Eoin Colfer The Artemis Fowl is milder and caring in this series Well, he doesn t actually like death on his hands, but, the means were unavoidable to achieve the goals Last book, his goal was to restore the family s billionaire status However, this book, he just wants to find his father Alas, an email arrives wanting five million dollars in exchange for his father Well, him and Butler, his large and bulky bodyguard he s no butler despite his name being Butler , devise a plan to go to Russia and save his father However, underground, the People fairies are being attacked by gremlims who are undeniably very very stupid , who are armed with weapons energized by batteries So Commander Julius Root, Holly and Foaly instantly suspect Artemis Fowl behind it.They instantly bring Artemis and Butler for questioning However, with the super advanced techies the People have, they deduce that Artemis Fowl is really innocent The People instead ask Artemis for his assistance to find the human behind all this Artemis agrees, however, he asks for something in return He asks that the Fairy People help him retrieve his father.But just as Artemis and the fairy people reach ground, everything begins to unravel Artemis Fowl is a really good book I believe if I have read this when I was a bit younger, I would have given this book 5 stars instead of 3 But unfortunately, I m already 22 But still its good

    And so on to the second of the Artemis Fowl series and I must admit there is no change in the same frenetic fun that there was in the first From the play on works to the ever gathering mythology of those above and those below I suspect that there is a whole book no pun intended for those who have read the the series of material that could be written about this world, how it came about and how it all works As usual the challenge is to talk about the book without giving away spoilers not easy considering that a lot of what goes on in this book is related to the first in the series so technical double the need to avoid spoilers However it does give some closure to what is going on which is rather strange considering currently there are 8 books in the series not counting short stories, specials and I believe a return to the series later in the year although with other members of the family However I can say that rather than seeing the same story re hashed you actually get to see the characters develop something you would not have achieved without the first book For me this is the sign of potentially good series in that all the time you invest reading the various volumes sees you rewarded with the characters becoming appealing and enjoyable In short you want to read to see where they go next just as much as wanting to find out what happens next The series has quite a few volumes to go so I guess I need to settle down and add them to my TBR pile while I work on finishing some I already have under way.

    The Arctic Incident was a really fun read I can t believe I ve never read this series before because it s really interesting I can t wait to start the third book now.Okay, so in this book Artemis is trying to find out what happened to his dad and, well he needs to save his ass too The day he finds out his dad has been held captive in Russia for two years. he gets himself captured by the Faerie police Enter Holly and Root, two adorable and one hundred percent likable characters They have Artemis under suspicion because they believe he s been in talks with the goblins Of course they make the wrong assumption and they need Artemis s help However, Artemis caught onto all of this because he woke up there instead of in his bed So he makes a deal with them that if he helps them. well, they have to help him get to Russia Artemis wanting to rescue his dad was really sweet of him. but I was also scared because what if everything goes wrong Throughout the book I loved the friendship that was forming between Artemis, Holly, and Root I really liked Holly and Root in this book two They just always made me smile or laugh when they were together Overall, I m really happy for the happy ending Artemis and his mom are reunited with his dad and they are a family again However, what s going to happen next I feel like something is going to happen Whether is major or not, I just have a feeling I need book ASAP.

    Artemis Vater war ja ein Anf hrer eines m chtigen Verbrecherimperiums, der sich nach langen Jahren skrupelloser Geldmacherei jetzt mit legalen Gesch ften zur Ruhe setzen wollte Die russische Mafija allerdings ver bte einen Anschlag auf Fowl senior, der seither als verschollen gilt.Artemis indessen, ein junger Teenager mit extrem hohem IQ und ebenso gro em kriminellem Potenzial tritt tatkr ftig in die Fu stapfen seines Vaters Dabei entdeckt er die Existenz der unterirdisch lebenden, magischen V lker W hrend er jetzt endlich einen Hinweis auf den Verbleib seines Vaters entdeckt, den er unbedingt befreien will, machen ihm die Unterirdischen einen Strich durch die RechnungW hrenddessen braut sich in Haven City im Erdland eine Verschw rung zusammen Captain Holly Short, die einzig weibliche Agentin der ZUP Zentrale Untergrund Polizei muss einem gef hrlichen Schmugglerring auf die Spur kommen, hinter dem die B wa Kell steckt, die Koboldmafia.Meine MeinungIch lese die Reihe ja grade zum zweiten Mal und es hat wieder eine Menge Spa gemacht Ich kann mich ja kaum noch an die Handlung erinnern, aber die Charaktere waren mir noch gut im Ged chtnis geblieben einfach weil sie wirklich ausdruckstark und ungew hnlich sind im positiven Sinn Die Handlung von Band 1 liegt ein Jahr zur ck Artemis ist jetzt 13 Jahre alt, aber man darf diesen jungen Burschen wirklich nicht untersch tzen Durch seine hohe geistige Genialit t fehlt es ihm nat rlich an dem Gef hl der Zwischenmenschlichkeit, aber man merkt schon immer wieder, dass da sehr wohl auch Potenzial vorhanden ist Was ihn noch sympathischer macht So sehr er in gesch ftlichen Dingen und seinen gesetzeswidrigen Coups rein strategisch denkt, h ngt er gef hlsm ig an seiner Familie und deshalb m chte er auch nicht wahr haben, dass sein Vater tot sein soll Die Rettung, die jetzt endlich zum Greifen nahe scheint, stellt ihn allerdings vor schwerwiegende Probleme.Die zackige Elfin Holly Short mag ich auch total gerne Sie hat den Willen, sich in der M nnerdom ne der Unterirdischen im Polizeidienst durchzusetzen und hat zum Gl ck auch einen F rsprecher durch Commander Root der das allerdings niemals ffentlich zugeben w rde Ihre Jagd auf die Koboldmafia bringt Artemis mit ins Spiel, was ihre beiden Rettungsmissionen miteinander verbindet.Dadurch ndert sich auch merklich das Verh ltnis gerade von Artemis und Holly, die sich ja eher als Feinde gegen berstanden und je besser sie sich kennenlernen sp rt man, das daraus doch vielleicht auch eine Freundschaft erwachsen kann.Der Schreibstil ist an sich einfach und fl ssig zu lesen, aber er fordert schon auch etwas heraus, denn grade die verzwickten Ideen von Artemis, aber auch die technikaffine Unterwelt hat viel Komplexit t und Wissen zu bieten Das erste Drittel fand ich noch etwas dahinpl tschernd, aber dann war Tempo und Spannung da und das Buch kaum mehr aus der Hand zu legen.Besonders toll finde ich die vielen Ideen, die der Autor in die Beschreibung des Erdvolkes steckt und da auch ganz au ergew hnliche Charaktere herausgearbeitet hat Aber er flechtet auch immer wieder eher subtil kleine Bemerkungen ber die Umwelt verschmutzung ein ohne direkt mit dem Finger drauf zu zeigen, genauso wie auf die Vertreibung der magischen Wesen von der Oberwelt unter die Erde, was durchaus Anregungen zum Nachdenken geben kann Fazit 4.5 SterneWeltenwanderer
