Now Reading Artemis Fowl

I'm now reading Artemis Fowl, along with Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

I was surprised when my 14 year-old nephew ribbed his brother: "Look, Tito Manuel is reading Harry Potter!" It turns out some HP readers succumb to peer pressure.

As for me, I'm just trying to see what all the fuss is about. One nice thing about not having read Books 4 and 5 (Goblet of Fire, Order of the Phoenix) of the Harry Potter series is that I don't find the sixth book boring at all.

Other readers may feel that the first 600 pages is a recap of things that have already happened, but it my case, I get to mutter: "Oh, so that's what happened to Sirius Black..." (Given that the last story I remember was Book 3)

Since I don't like reading just one book, I take a few reading breaks (from reading Harry Potter books, that is) and end up trying other young adult fiction such as Artemis Fowl.

Looks like Artemis Fowl will appeal to teens who like action and adventure (it's a thriller fantasy novel), and who also like solving puzzles. At the bottom of the pages of the novel is a set of cryptic symbols. You can figure out the hidden message if you read the book.

I haven't read the entire book yet, but so far the protagonist* (?) Artemis Fowl has gotten hold of a secret book of Magick, courtesy of an old spirit who was under the influence of alcohol.

*(To Adi: Perhaps Artemis is what we may call a hero-villain.)
