Artemis Fowl - Eoin Colfer This is another case of "got good within the last 50 pages". I honestly should make that a shelf since I come across it so much.

I wanted to like this book. It's about a genius kid and I love smart kids. There are also fairies, goblins, dwarfs and it's told in a cute narrative. Buuuuuutttt, I found it boring and I'm quite upset about it. For being only 143 pages I should have finished this book in two days, alas, here I am about a week after starting writing my review.

I can't really even state what it was about this book that I found mundane. It was just an overall feeling I got. I dreaded coming back to it. I wasn't enraptured (is this a word?) within the first few pages and then it drug ass.

All in all: Unamused. I don't know that I will be reading the others.
