Ever the resourceful young criminal mastermind, Artemis has found a way to construct a supercomputer from stolen fairy technology. Called the "C Cube," it will render all existing human technology obsolete. Artemis then arranges a meeting with a Chicago businessman, Jon Spiro, to offer to suppress the Cube for one year in return for gold, his favorite substance. But the meeting is a trap, and Spiro steals the Cube and mortally injures Butler. Artemis knows his only hope to save Butler lies in fairy magic, so once again he is forced to contact his old rival, Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon fairy police. Miraculously, Butler is healed, but there is a catch: he has aged fifteen years. Thus, Butler's infamously ditzy sister, Juliet, is called in as Artemis's bodyguard. Together, they travel to Chicago to steal back the Cube and ensure that Jon Spiro is put out of business-permanently

This series kept me interested the whole way through. I am looking forward to the next book, and hope it has the same narrator. I would suggest this one to anyone that wants a breath of fresh air.

Artemis Fowl and the LEP is one of the most wonderful interpretations of fairies I have yet read. Everyone should take the time to enjoy this series. Delightful and intoxicating, you'll have to have MORE.

This book is both suspensful and touching-got a little misty when Butler was shot. The narrator is fantastic-really what makes or breaks an audiobook. Right up there with Jim Dale. Fun and engaging for older children and adults alike!

I guess I shouldn't review books 2 months after I "read" them, but this book was so good I can still remember it all and I loved it. Again youth/children's book are also good for us old folks to read or listen to. Now, my son and I have something we discuss frequently, could there really be such a world - hmmmm???

Wow, this is a great audio book. It's so exciting and it keeps you guessing what's going to happen next. Most importantly, the narration is excellent, and really makes the story come to life. It's been great to find an audio book that entertains both adults and kids.

A listening delight

We love Artemis Fowl. This is the third book in the series and really keeps you guessing. Artemis gets into more trouble that causes him to call on the very reluctant fairy folk. They help, but with conditions Artemis may or may not abide by. Can't wait for the next book so we can see if he keeps his word this time. A great listen for every age.

nice book

Author Details

Author Details

Colfer, Eoin

Eoin Colfer (pronounced Owen) was born in Wexford on the South-East coast of Ireland in 1965, where he and his four brothers were brought up by his father (an elementary school teacher, historian and artist of note) and mother (a drama teacher). He first developed an interest in writing in primary (elementary) school with gripping Viking stories inspired by history he was learning in school at the time!

After leaving school he got his degree from Dublin university and qualified as a primary school teacher, returning to work in Wexford. He married in 1991 and he and his wife spent about 4 years between 1992 and 1996 working in Saudi Arabia, Tunisia and Italy. His first book, Benny and Omar, was published in 1998, based on his experiences in Tunisia; it has since been translated into many languages. A sequel followed in 1999, followed by some other books (see below). Then in 2001 the first Artemis Fowl book was published and he was able to resign from teaching and concentrate fully on writing.

He says, "I will keep writing until people stop reading or I run out of ideas. Hopefully neither of these will happen anytime soon."

He lives in Ireland with his wife and two children.
