I bet you can't wait to go on holiday! Don't worry about which book to take because I've just read a brilliant fantasy thriller set in Ireland. It's called Artemis Fowl and it's by my favourite author. Eoin Colfer.
Let me tell you a bit about the book. Basically, it's a fairy tale for our times. It's about a fairy police officer called Captain Holly Short who is kidnapped by the twelve-year-old evil genius. Artemis Fowl. He wants the fairies to pay a lot of gold to get her back. Unfortunately for Artemis, Holly Short is a member of the fairy secret police and her senior officer will do anything to rescue her.
So, as you can imagine, the plot is very exciting and fast-paced and it is very funny, too. The characters are also well developed. There is a lot of action and interesting high-tech gadgets. The theme of good versus evil is strong throughout.
Well, that's about it. All in all, Artemis Fowl is an excellent book that I think is very well written. I couldn't put it down from the very first page! I would definitely recommend that you read it. Have a great holiday! Julie
