"Squeeze my little toe" - The funniest of the bunch

Another thoroughly enjoyable adventure of our teenage millionaire criminal mastermind, but this time the stakes are much higher, so high that for once, one Butler just isn't enough. Artemis has used his ill-gotten fairy gadgets to create an electronic device the same size as, and a gazillion times more complex than Rubik's Cube. There's just one drawback - and of course it's a BIGGIE - it provides an access route to the Lower Elements, endangering the fairy way of life. Having accidentally handed the cube on a platter to Jon Spiro, a ruthless American businessman, Artemis is faced with the challenge of his life, but he's helpless without the good folk of Haven City - plus reinforcements. This time, Artemis needs two strong women behind him to make him look good - the fairy of his dreams, Captain Holly Short (a Sandra Bullock/Kim Possible mix) and Juliet Butler (a Lucy Liu/Uma Thurman type). Teamed with the dwarf digging sensation, and Haven City's resident centaur genius, Artemis still has to use every last ounce of his cunning and intellect to formulate a retrieval plan, while surprises lurk around every corner. Can Jon Spiro break the Eternity Code before Artemis can retrieve the cube? Can Artemis survive this last encounter? Can the LEP mind wipe make Artemis forget his friends and adventures? Can Artemis give up his life of crime and become a part of a normal family unit? The first three answers will be revealed to you as you read this book. The last? Yeah right!! There's never a dull moment in this book, and it's Colfer at his funniest. Amanda Richards, October 12, 2004

Must Have Book!

My title is pretty much self explanatory. The Eternity Code had very professionally mixed magic, action and strategy(VERY clever strategies I might add). Artemis Fowl is no ordinary teenage boy. He is a genius with money and power. Deadly combination. And he doesn't have ordinary friends either: Captain Holly Short(Fairy)who has a knack of breaking rules, Foaly(Centaur/electronics geek) who is annoying yet funny and very smart, Mulch Diggums(kleptomaniac dwarf).You will love this book! Enjoy!

Eternity Code...

From the first glance, you see a clean cut blue and purple cover of the Eternity Code. Once again, Eoin Colfer astounds us with his brilliant ability to write with such sarcastic humour. With his funny prose, we read the third (and perhaps last) adventure of our child prodigy, Artemis Fowl. This time, Artemis has invented the C Cube, from some stolen fairy technology he had from since he abducted Holly. This C Cube is fifty years ahead of human technology and can do practically anything in the world. As his father is now alive and ...moralistic, Artemis swears this is his last plot before turning back to a "normal" childhood. Artemis shows businessman Spiro his technological wonder of the C Cube, which results in the C Cube being stolen, Butler shot, and all round chaos. Luckily, Butler is healed by no other than Holly Short, though he has aged 15 years. Thus begins a whirlwind adventure of getting back the C Cube and preventing a species war on Earth... I would highly recommend this book for all ages, as this book is full of wit and glamour.

Third Artemis book definitley NOT 'Foul'

As an avid reader of the Artemis Fowl books, I was totally excited for the new installment. And, having been lucky enough to see Mr. Colfer in person, the book was even more enjoyable. The Eternity Code is as witty and creative as the other two, with surprising twists that'll make you jump out of your chair! However, I must admit that I am still partial to the Arctic Incident, go figure. Still, this book is the perfect read for any occasion. I reccomend it to anyone.

DECODED: An Action-packed and fun novel--hilarious!

HE'S BAAACK! Yes, Artemis Fowl is back in action in the third addition to the hit series. The book is packed full with action and lives up to the promises of the other books. Artemis Fowl is coming to grips with the return of his kidnapped father and Fowl Sr.'s newly formed conscience. His parents are insisting on turning around the illegal enterprises of the Fowl Family, but Artemis isn't so sure. Still, in an effort to please his parents, he decides that he will commit just one last crime. Just a tiny one. But, Artemis didn't count on the operation blowing up in his face. When he meets with American master criminal Jon Spiro, he didn't realize he was being set up. All Artemis wanted to do was intimidate him a little bit with his new "C Cube", a hybrid of fairy and human technology decades ahead of its time; it will render all other technologies--like the ones Spiro creates--obsolete. So when Spiro steals the Cube and mortally wounds Butler in an attempt to murder Artemis, the young master criminal is forced to seek the aid of his long-time adversaries. The Fairies are less than pleased when Artemis reveals his loss of the fairy technology, that, in the wrong hands, would be capable of revealing the entire Fairy civilization. Determined to steal back the C Cube, Artemis enlists the aid of Captain Holly Short and the Fairy criminal Mulch Diggums in a risky operation that takes place in Chicago. Great fun! Colfer exercises his great prowess as a writer as he seamlessly winds the third story of Artemis Fowl. The funny, witty characters manage to be charming and tough. The only qualm I had was that Holly and Artemis had less interaction that they did in #2, which would have added even more humor to the novel. We also get to know Juliet Butler better, which is a good addition to the story. Okay, do you really have to read this review to know you NEED TO READ this book? I didn't think so. If you haven't, read the others first. And when you have finished all three, you'll be hoping that Colfer will produce a fourth (its rumored that it will be quartet.)So Happy Reading! You'll have lots of fun with this one...
