Book Review of Artemis Fowl and The Eternity Code.While I found The Eternity Code enjoyable it is also the first Artemis Fowl book in which I have something to quibble about.
I simply had a difficult time accepting that Jon Spiro could have at any time outsmarted Artemis. The man is just not intelligent enough to be a worthy adversary for Artemis. I thought it would have been much easier to swallow the thought that Artemis might be mellowing rather than that Jon Spiro could have been one step ahead of him at any time.
Other than that though, I still enjoyed the tale. This story certainly offers plenty of chances for Artemis to shine. Considering that Artemis usually has a good grasp of the psychological makeup of his opponents and allies, it is funny how he can be lacking in the most basic of social skills at times. Yet, again and again I find it is his ability to predict how everyone will react which helps in plotting his way to success.
And of course, the undeniable rapport forming between Artemis and his allies is always fun to watch. Reading how these disparate characters learn to work together had me chuckling most of the time.
In short, The Eternity Code is another enjoyable addition to the Artemis Fowl series.
My conclusions :
- Would I re-read the book ? Yes.
- Would I want to read the next book in the series ? Yes.
- Would I want to own my personal copy if I didn’t already own it ? Yes.
- Who would I recommend this too? Fantasy readers.
- For those looking to read the book, would I recommend buying or borrowing the book? Buy it.
