Artemis Fowl: The Eternity Code – Eoin Colfer

Posted on August 1, 2008


The Eternity Code is the third book of the Artemis Fowl series.

Artemis Fowl has created a computer called the C Cube from stolen fairy technology. He uses it to taunt human technology expert Jon Spiro who subsequently steals the cube and one of his henchmen murders Artemis’ trusted ally Butler. With the aid of cryogenics and Holly Short’s healing powers, Butler is restored, however he is somewhat older. Together, and with the aid of the usual LEP gang plus Mulch Diggums, they break into Spiro’s offices and steal back the cube due to one of Artemis’ ingenious plans. After this adventure, the fairies decide that they have seen enough of Artemis and subject him to a mind wipe, meaning that he forgets everything about his meetings with the LEP. But Artemis has left several clues for himself…………..

In my opinion, this is the best of the Artemis Fowl books as it shows Artemis in his more vulnerable state after the murder of Butler and one of Artemis’ best plans that results in the return of the C Cube.
