Publisher's Summary

Artemis has committed his entire fortune to a project he believes will save the planet and its inhabitants, both human and fairy. Can it be true? Has goodness taken hold of the world’s greatest teenage criminal mastermind?

Captain Holly Short is unconvinced, and discovers that Artemis is suffering from Atlantis Complex, a psychosis common in guilt-ridden fairies. Symptoms include obsessive-compulsive behavior, paranoia, multiple personality disorder and, in extreme cases, embarrassing professions of love to a certain feisty LEPrecon fairy.

Unfortunately, Atlantis Complex has struck at the worst possible time. A deadly foe from Holly’s past is intent on destroying the actual city of Atlantis. Can Artemis escape the confines of his mind—and the grips of a giant squid—in time to save the underwater metropolis and its fairy inhabitants?

Artemis Fowl has lost his mind... Just when the world needs him most.

Listen to more Artemis Fowl adventures.

    "The story is fine, but production is a bit strange"

    I was a bit worried based off some of the other reviews. The story is entertaining, but certainly not as exciting as others and definitely not my favorite of the series. I do have a few issues with the story which I'll mention, as well as a comment about the production quality of this book (which was noticeably different from others). I'm trying to keep in mind I'm a grown man reviewing a kids book, but all my issues are in comparison to the high quality of the previous books.

    My biggest problem with the story was that it was really transparent. Whereas most of the other stories keep you guessing as to who's doing what and how things will work out and why, this story pretty much lays it out up front. The only unknown is right at the start, and the rest of the story is predictable once we are told who the antagonist is and see exactly what they are doing from their perspective.

    I get that things need to be recapped from previous stories in case someone's reading this book first, but seriously, who would do that?. Usually this background knowledge is given in bits and pieces as things arise that the reader should know about or be reminded of (like the unusual abilities of dwarfs, which would be very strange if you it just happened without any previous knowledge). But this book started with a blunt specific recap of the others that really didn't develop as part of this story. I didn't think that was necessary, especially by the time fans are reading book 7.

    Also, the struggles Artemis goes through occur right from the start and I'm not sure I liked the way it was presented. Usually, things arise as part of the story, but here the issues are randomly preexisting having just happened at some point between the two stories. Just didn't feel well thought out as a story and seemed like an awkward plot device that predictably serves it's purpose later in the story.

    One thing I noticed that I haven't with the other books is something with the production quality. Overall, Nathanial Parker is great as usual. I know they record, edit and piece audiobooks together, but generally they are seamless and unnoticeable. There were multiple times where I caught the awkwardness midsentence where the recording quality, volume, and voice tone completely changed.

    Overall it's a fine story. Not quite as engaging as previous books, and I think some of the plot devices were a little too unnatural to the story, but it's still fun.

    Im a 39 year old self employed female who does a lot of driving and audiobooks make driving enjoyable for me. I enjoy conteporary and historical fiction as well as fun comedic romances.

    "Love this series!"

    I just love the Artemis Fowl series. As I read each book the relationship between Holly and Artemis continues to evolve. Lots of twists and turns making these books very exciting to listen to. The narrator makes it all come alive and draws you in to the story.

    "needs a better ending"

    great story idea, but Colfer fell short of his regular standards. Needs more meat! Doesn't hold my attention.
