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.

“[Artemis Fowl] will grab your interest, no matter what your age.” (The New York Post)
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.
3 times now....lol
Mulch of course...
No, this is the first one, but very well vocalized
Even a genuis can have an off day!
Books, Books, Books, Audiobooks, Books, Books... need i say more? :D
Artemis is crazy yet he is still brilliant enough to figure it out! i mean even his own mind is not enough to win against him! in this Artemis book we see our brave irish hero slowly descend into madness, while he tries to concur his own mind he faces space probes, his complex of being a nut, a giant squid, and an enemy everyone over looked he slowly goes and along with Holly, Foaly, Butler, Diggums, and a new "person" Orion we see them go through thick, thin and gelatinous goo.
Eoin Colfer, Creates a good story with good characters but his books have become more and more preachy on man is bad and destroying the world line. I do not select books to get preached about subjects in this case global warming that quite frankly have a questionable basis I am 40 but and have lived long enough to remember when I was a kid being told that we were causing a new Ice age. Yet science now say we are causing warming that has been going on 100 yrs. yeah right and we are all going to die from the ozone hole and acid rain.
Before reading this book please read state of fear by Michael Crichton (author of Jurasic park).
The Artemis Fowl series is wonderfully original and engaging. Unfortunately The Atlantis Complex is not on par with the rest of them. It still has its moments of Colfer's signature wit and charm, but feels like a let down in many other areas. As much as it is sad to say, it seems like the series had run its course with the fifth or sixth book, and this installment adds little.
On the bright side, Nathaniel Parker's narration is a brilliant as ever.
I love the entire Artemis Fowl series, but I must admit I was a little disappointed in the last one. In this installment, Eoin Colfer is back to form with his characteristic clever story line, "fun"tastic dialogue, and delightful characters. I really enjoyed the plot as well as the twists with Artemis' character development. Unlike some of the other reviewers, I found the story provided a great balance for all the characters I've come to know and love. Plus, the combination of magic and technology was as intriguing as ever. Finally, Nathaniel Parker is by far one of my favorite narrators ever. I'm so happy he's back. He gives each character a unique and absolutely perfect voice.
The reader does good, but he ruins it a bit when you have read the others. Eon did a great job with the book- but artimis and holley lacked a bit in this book. Not much with mulch either. Liked others ones better.
This was not the best book in the series. The plot was interesting in that the bad guy was not as cut and dry as in the past but the interplay between artemus and the rest of the characters was not as amusing as in the past. I was still glad to have read the Atlantis Complex because I just plain missed Artemus and all his friends.
