Guardian Review

Artemis Fowl and the Atlantis Complex by Eoin Colfer, reviewed by Linda Buckley-Archer

After a two-year absence, the razor-tongued, criminally-minded, Irish boy-genius is back - to a degree. For Artemis Fowl is not himself. He obsesses about the number four; he is paranoid and delusional; he has developed a split personality. So what's going on? Not only is our gold-loving anti-hero personally funding a project to slow down global warming by seeding snow clouds with smart nano-flakes, but he has also decided that he can no longer trust his bodyguard and friend, the inimitable Butler, whom he has sent to Mexico. Worse still, his alter ego, Orion, is love-struck: "I'm just a teenager with hormones running wild," he blurts out to Captain Holly Short. "And may I say, young fairy lady, they're running wild in your direction." LINDA BUCKLEY-ARCHER
