Artemis Fowl : The Eternity Code by Eoin Colfer
In this instalment, Artemis Fowl had invented device called C Cube that can do a million thing that current computer can;t do. If this device is released to the whole in general, the whole computer technology industry now would be made obsolete.
He attempted to sell C Cube to Spiro a master criminal who also holds a very large share of the current world technology. Unfortunately, Spiro would not deal. Instead he took the C Cube by force. During the shoot out, Artemis trusty bodyguard whom he considered as his closest friend was mortally wounded.
Artemis had no choice but to seek help from the Underworld. And should come to his add but Captain Holly Short. But in order to gain the help he required, he has to make a hard bargain.
Like Book 1, this is an exciting and fast paced book. The plot were unpredictable hence keeping readers to their toes.
To me it's like reading Sherlock Holmes. At times I was unable to understand why he do a certain action for example agree to a mind wipe. But all will be revealed at the end of the book.
This books is not only about the action but also shows the importance of friendship and the bonus is that there is humor in the book. That is what I like best about it.
