Review: The Eternity Code by Eoin Colfer



SUMMARY FROM AMAZON.COM:
Artemis Fowl is going straight. As soon as he pulls off the most brilliant criminal feat of his career.
At least, that’s the plan when he attempts to sell his C Cube, a supercomputer built from stolen fairy technology. When his efforts to broker a deal for the Cube with a powerful businessman go terribly wrong, his loyal bodyguard and friend Butler is mortally injured. The only thing that will save him is fairy magic, so once again he must contact his old rival, Holly Short.
It’s going to take a miracle to save Butler, and Artemis’s luck may have just run out.
MY TAKE:

I really enjoyed the first two books so I was looking forward to reading the next two books in the series, thanks to NetGalley's special release.
The Eternity Code finds Artemis Fowl trying to run one last shady business deal before he turns good. However, he bites off more than he can chew and thus begins a chain of events that lead to an interesting development in Artemis' life.
I really liked this one, as usual. Artemis is at his scheming best. He is one step ahead of the villain, even when you think he isn't. Holly Short is less annoying in this one, and while she still isn't one of my most favorite characters, she's slowly becoming more tolerable to me.
The premise of the plot is simple enough. It's straightforward and so is how the conclusion is reached. The journey to the awesome ending is pretty awesome, though.
Thanks to NetGalley and Disney-Hyperion for the e-copy.

THE GOOD:
  1. Artemis is at his best.
  2. The premise is interesting.
  3. You learn new things.
THE BAD:
  1. It may seem too formulaic.
FAVORITE QUOTE/S:
"I am that male. Artemis, the hunter. I hunted you."
READ IT IF:
  1. You're a fan of the series.
  2. You like programming things.
  3. You want to read action-packed YA books.
