Title: Artemis Fowl
Author: Eoin Colfer
It's actually been a number of months since I read this book so I unfortunately can't remember very many details. It came across on a free eBook list at some point so I added it to my Kindle and put in on my heaping stack of to be reads. I'm not generally a fantasy reader, but the story was cute. I read the book in a couple of sittings and would most likely give the rest of the series a try should I come across them at the right time.
