Book: Artemis Fowl – The Eternity Code

Artemis Fowl The Eternity Code

Some things never change with Artemis Fowl. His criminal side may have taken a slight step backward with the return of his father, but it naturally wouldn’t stay that way for long. With one last score as his intention, Artemis Fowl steps onto a landmine. His plans backfire and this is the setting of The Eternity Code.

Smart is really what makes this book tick. The plot is clever, the characters are clever, the plans are always ingenious and the villains are not stupid. All this combined makes the book an enjoyable read. The character development that begun in the first book, really picks up pace here in the third. Yet at the end, it hits a wall, a massive brick wall and it really makes you wonder what’s going to happen to dear Artemis Fowl. It’s bait for the next book in the series, but it keeps the reader engaged and interested. I guess that’s what sets this series apart from others I’ve read. Many series are plot driven, mysteries unfold bit by bit through the different books. Artemis Fowl however is the reason I keep reading. I want to see him as he meets new challenges. I want to see him change for the better. I want to see him grow as a character, as a person.

These books are built solidly on the character of Artemis Fowl. Each book is complete in and of itself. An event occurs, a problem arises and it is resolved within the book. However, to see the changes occurring in him as we follow the series is really spectacular and makes me anticipate the next chapter in the life of Artemis Fowl.
