Hi friends, I am back with a new book review! I really loved the first two books of the Artemis Fowl series. I loved them so much that I decided to read and review all eight of them in the series. The book I am reviewing today is the third installment in the series, which is called “Artemis Fowl & the Eternity Code“, which by far has the most action. My love for this series is increasing with each book.So enough talk, let’s get started..
Artemis Fowl has once again been too clever for his own good. This time he has constructed a super-computer with fairy technology. He has taken the technology from high-tech police helmets captured during the fowl manor siege. That technology is many years ahead of its time.He has invented a small cube which acts as a micro TV, a verbally controlled computer, a mobile phone and a diagnostic aid as well. It could do anything and its battery wouldn’t die for at least 2 years. And of course it is completely wireless. All this in one teeny tiny box! He has made a new computer language and the cube is coded to his voice patterns and commands and which means that only he can operate it.
He decides to sell the cube for (you guessed it!) GOLD. He sets up a meeting with an american businessman Jon Spiro, to sell the cube, but the meeting went horribly wrong. In the meeting Butler gets gravely injured trying to save Artemis. Jon Spiro turns out to be a crook. If Artemis unravels the secrets of his cube to Jon Spiro, it will endanger the fairy world which would mean only one thing. WAR!
Can Artemis heal his old friend, prevent the exposure of fairy world and expose Jon Spiro for the crook he is and get the cube back??
I really liked this book because it was totally different from its prequels, unlike in some books where their prequel/sequel are sort of same, this wasn’t. Also , this series is totally different from any other series I have read. I mean, armed and dangerous fairies!! Who would have thought!!
Also it has got its fair share of action, humor and drama. Even a person who doesn’t like to read will get addicted to this series. I also like it because plot is laid out really well, though it is written from two to three different perspectives,you can keep track and it all comes together beautifully in the end. I also like the fact that Artemis is becoming nicer with each book. In the first one he was pure evil. In the second book he was better and in the third one he was just great! I loved the way he planned his operation, it was simply genius. Hold on to your seats for a ride that is thrilling and will keep you hooked. Anyone who likes the fantasy genre will love it.
Hope you liked my review and this book is rated 5/5 by me!
