This is probably the closest I'll ever get to watching an Artemis Fowl movie.

I enjoyed getting faces for all of my favorite characters and though the book is the better medium for this story, this is definitely pretty cool.

the artemis fowl series is a must-read for young adults wanting to experience something out of the box and dive into the something extraordinary much like the well received percy Jackson books

This is an amazing book, but I have to admit, the ending is a bit confusing.

Exciting, and clever, this book adaption does not feel like one, it feels like an original story written for a graphic novel, which is a testament to the adapters knowledge of the format. A very fresh idea, by using a genius villain as the main character, we get to look into a very different personality. Artemis has his own problems that trouble him, and for that reason he is very driven towards his goal. The mixture of the fairy and human worlds is good setting, and it will be interesting to see how it is used in the future.

The score I gave this book is solely on the fact that I, above all else, enjoyed the artwork. I was rather disappointed with the story, however, as it seemed unremarkable. I'm sure that fans would beg to differ but I was neither enthralled or captivated. I kept reading to the end because I simply loved the artwork.

Artemis Fowl The Graphic Novel is very well written and an exceptional teen book. Eoin Colfer had to do major editing to get the book down to graphic novel size, this extra editing is what made the writing so excellent. In literature classes, one usually writes a 20 page paper and edits it to about 15-18 pages. In the process, the writing becomes crisp, tight, and bears all the good qualities one wants in writing without the uneeded and superflous language that rarely adds to the work. In the case of fiction, it makes the work stronger, albeit shorter. Which is exactly what Eoin did here and it is why this graphic novel gets 5 stars.

I picked up the original, all-words version of this book first. The art in the graphic novel was very appealing to me, even though most of the characters were not has I had imagined them in my head. It felt like the story flew by; I think being able to fill in the gaps from having read Artemis Fowl already really helped me not feel somewhat out of the loop as I read through the abridged version here.
