|Fairies, not Jedis.|
The thing about Artemis Fowl is that it takes a good concept, mixes it with sci-fi superimposed on fantasty and wraps in half-assed writing. It's like taking strawberries, mixing it with fairy diarrhoea and then wrapping it in toilet paper. And call it dumplings.
Now, to be fair, the action scenes are pretty good, and if you don't mind the antagonists being fucking fairies, it's a really good police-versus-criminal type of story. Almost. Because I still can't get over them fairies stuff. Damn, this fairy concept is retarded. Really. I've seen good sci-fi + fantasy fusions before (eg. Snow Crash, Discworld, hell, I even wrote one), but this is so over-the-top. But hey - there are always good sided to everything, such as the graphic novel.

I'm lamp-ARR-ski, burning bad books in the toilet bowl.
