One interesting thing about this book is that there are mythical creatures and races. That make this book funny the side characters are well made and designed.
Artemis Fowl a twelve year old criminal mastermind/millionaire who is trying to regain his family's glory. The Butlers have been serving the Fowls for ages trained in martial arts. For example “Butler could kill you a hundred different ways without use of his armory. Though I'm sure one would be quite sufficient.” Holly Short is a city elf born and bred who is willing to help someone in need.These characters are all wonderful and when the author created these characters he must have been proud.
This book is amazing and is well written. Also sarcastic and humorous and filled with mystery all good traits in a book.If you want a book that is humorous and filled with mystery and sarcasm then this is the book for you.
