Artemis Fowl - The Arctic Incident by Eion Colfer


BLURBS:
Artemis Fowl receives an urgent e-mail from Russia. In it is a plea from a man who has been kidnapped by the Russian Mafiya: his father. As Artemis rushes to his rescue, he is stopped by a familiar nemesis, Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon Unit. Now, instead of battling the fairies, Artemis must join forces with them if he wants to save one of the few people in the world he loves.




THOUGHTS:
This 2nd installment of boy genius Artemis Fowl has more action. And has deeper schemes. Now that Artemis' mother is back to lucidity, he is now adjusting to whbat is supposed to be normal. It was such a laugh when he used his vast knowledge about psychology to threw off his counselor. I think Artemis' teaming up with the LEP is too soon, I imagined that they would have more encounter as enemies first insteadof this. But then again authors have such wit on plotting. And again such big words for the 6th grader, which I think is good, now they'll get to use the dictionary more often while reading this. LOL. Also this hero needs to learn kung-fu or something, too much brain without any combat skills tend to get boring. Now that Artemis' dad has been rescued and fortunate alive, how will Artemis manage? I cannot wait for more of his adventures. And for the maturity of his character, and then I can really call him dangerous.

This sounds perfect! My teenage son is a read a holic and today is the last day of school. So I'm pondering what he can read this summer and this book sounds like it fits on sooo many levels.

It's on the list. Now I'm off to find others from your reviews. It's a great source of info that I'll share with my son too so he can read and make some choices.
