Review: Artemis Fowl (Artemis Fowl #1)

User Review  - Christie - Goodreads

From someone who actually enjoys a good poop joke, even I could barely manage through this book. It's honestly not poorly written, but overall the characters and plot were incredibly dull and unoriginal. You know, except for the whole butt rocketing out poop thing. Read full review
