Description

"Artemis Fowl: The Eternity Code" is the third book in the unbelievably brilliant "Artemis Fowl" series by Eoin Colfer. Artemis Fowl is attempting to go straight. But there's always time for one last job. Artemis Fowl has created the most powerful new supercomputer known to man - using stolen technology from an elite race of underground fairies. And when the computer falls into the hands of an IT billionaire with a shady past and an alleged mob connection, Artemis is in deep trouble. The consequences for humans and fairies alike are deadly. Only one person, well, fairy, can help him now. If only Artemis Fowl wasn't the fairies' public enemy number one..."Grips like an electromagnet until the last word". ("Independent"). "Engagingly vivid, exciting and witty". ("The Telegraph"). "Fast, funny and very exciting". ("Daily Mail"). "Artemis Fowl" was winner of the WHSmith Children's Book of the Year Award and Children's Book of the Year at the Children's Book Awards. It is shortlisted for the Whitbread Children's Book of the Year Award. Eoin Colfer was born and raised in Wexford in the south-east of Ireland. He began writing plays at an early age and, as an adult, continued to write. "Artmis Fowl", his first book featuring the brilliant young anti-hero, was an immediate international bestseller and won several prestigious awards.

  • I was laughing out loud reading this latest installment of the Artemis Fowl series. My favourite character, Mulch Diggums, is now an enforcer of the Chicago Mafia and working as a muscleman for Jon Spiro, the slightly lunatic and unhinged businessman that has ripped off Artemis Fowl by stealing his C Cube computer (made by fairy technology) and ordering Butler to be shot.With Butler out of the picture with gunshot wounds, Juliet Butler (Butler's sister) enters the scene as Fowl's bodyguard (cue Kill Bill music and Uma Thurman with her sword!!). Artemis vows revenge on Spiro for stealing the C Cube and for having Butler shot. Since the C Cube is essentially fairy technology, Fowl manages to persuade Root, Short and Foaly that they need to help him get the C Cube back. But Root has a price - after it's all over, everyone needs to agree to be mind-wiped.This book has to be Mulch Diggum's crowning moment of glory. Sit back and prepare for lots of laughs.

  • Great book so far (I haven't finished it). Artemis Fowl Is an excellent main character who is witty, intelligent and much more. He is accompanied by his bodyguard Butler, who is a master of all types of combat. Artemis Has many encounters with the LEP (fairy police force) Captain Holly short. An excellent read.

  • Artemis Fowl is back in this interesting story, except this time he's about to hang up his maniacal schemes and go for a fresh start with his father. On one last scheme before his fresh start though, Artemis finds himself playing into a trap, when John Spiro tricks Artemis into giving up a piece of fairy technology - the C Cube. To get it back, Artemis has to exchange his memory of the fairy people for their help to save his friend Butler from death, and show John Spiro that he messed around with the wrong 13-year-old boy...

  • Artemis' 3rd adventure doesn't start as he wants it to. It causes him to get faithful Butler injured. Can Artemis face what's coming next?Yes he can and does. Everything is not about brains as our young rogue will learn. Half of it depends on the heart as well.
