This book has introduced me the personalities of fairies which I didn't know before. Like I didn't know how an elf looks like. What are the nature of dwarves. etc... This book really helped me to get the concepts of the fairies including: Elves, Goblins, Trolls, Dwarves, Pixies, Sprite. This book also contains the interviews of our lead characters. I liked all the interviews. Those were excellently written. We get the answers of those questions which may pop up in our minds about the characters. I enjoyed the interviews. VERY MUCH. And finally this book contains two stories also. First is about how our second lead(Captain Holly Short) that how she became a part of Recon from a traffic police. And second is about Artemis Fowl (^_^) and Mulch (a dwarf and thief) that how they teamed up to steal a precious thing. Both were good. But I liked second more. Because of Artemis!!!!!! Of course. Author asked Artemis this Question in the his interview: Who is your best friend? Artemis' Answer: I believe that we agreed that this question would not be asked. If my enemies discovered who my best friend is, they could get to me through him or her. Let me just say that my best friend is never far away and has been with me since the day of my birth.

    Never had The Artemis Fowl Files on my radar until recently and I'm not even disappointed that I read it. I just feel like sometimes novellas really work for a book, and other times they don't. That being said - it worked for here and this series. It was definitely a quick read and it had a couple of fun stories. Definitely liked getting to know Holly a bit more and she's possibly becoming my favorite character out of the series.

    Very nice book for everyone who is a fan of Artemis Fowl. I think the two stories in this book were better than the later books in the series. They are very funny and are written in the no-nonsense adventurous way of the first books before things started to take a more serious tone.

    This was a book that I liked on my first reading, but loathed very certainly upon my second or third. The two-year gap might explain a bit. The two-star rating, instead of a one, is mainly because the stories included are very good. I find no flaws with them, and I've picked up the book to re-read them several times. But the trivia questions, extras, and basically everything else, are annoying and badly written.

It always seems to me that the major flaw of writers, particularly in the young-adult area, is that they try to force their own views down your throat. And Eoin Colfer has sadly fallen victim to this. It is said, repeatedly, that Artemis Fowl is the smartest living thing ever. Which leads to the problem that everything he says must be held up to the rigorous standards of being the smartest thing ever. Frankly, I wouldn't ever consider it a good idea to write about a character who is smarter than you are. You'd never be able to write that character properly, because you'd have no way of knowing his thought processes. And Eoin Colfer seems to think he is the smartest man alive, as he gives Artemis almost his exact political and scientific views. Every quiz and fill-out form only serves to show Artemis mentally atomizing some poor sap who dared to think the wrong thing. I could probably ramble on far more here, but I'll keep it short. Though his characters are well conceptualized, they are handled very poorly in this book, and several further books as well. If you only want the short stories, pick it up somewhere cheap, but if you really want information on the characters and events of the story, it might just be better to Google it.

    A companion book to the Artemis Fowl series. The book contains two short stories: "LEPrecon" describes Holly's initiation from Traffic duty to Recon. "Seventh Dwarf" follows Mulch Diggums, my favorite Artemis Fowl character, as he and Artemis team up to steal a famous tiara. The rest of the book is comprised of "notes" from Artemis Fowl's files on the fairy folk--the fairy code and a key to decode it and interviews with the main charactersare the highlights.

    (3,5) I'm happy when finishing a series I find some short stories set in the same universe. If it took me some time to get into the last Artemis Folw's book, I thoroughly enjoyed these two short stories from the start. I loved discovering these little adventures and the little bit of information they gave me. Now I would like to re-read the Fowl's books from the start.

    This is a fun addition to the Artemis Fowl canon. Along with character interviews and a catalog of some of Foaly's inventions, there are two short stories. "LEPrecon," the story of how Holly got into recon in the first place, is a good, solid story. Believable plot (believable in this universe of fairies and whatnot), good villain, typical rule-breaking Holly shenanigans. "The Seventh Dwarf" is fun, but it feels more like filler than anything else. Granted, Eoin Colfer filler is pretty good fill This is a fun addition to the Artemis Fowl canon.

Fun but slight, and the timeline only sort of fits with the rest of the canon.

    The Artemis Fowl Files include a fairy spotter's guide, the story behind how Holly became part of the LEPrecon, interviews with the main characters and the author and the story 'The Seventh Dwarf' which happens between the first and the second book in the series. The interviews and stories in the book were pretty funny and interesting. However, the interviews had some spoilers in them if you had read this book before the second book, The Arctic Incident.

    I thought the interviews and faerie descriptions were a little contrived, but the short stories themselves were wonderful! How else would Holly earn a spot in LEPrecon without breaking a few rules as she always does? How else would Mulch and Artemis grow to be friends if they weren't pulling off a few heists behind the backs of the LEP?

    Despite how long it took me to read, I did enjoy this book once I ACTUALLY started reading (it took awhile to pick up). Hopefully the books I recently bought at BandN won't suffer the same fate (The Sun is also a star, and The Thief) Thanks for the AF book Reebs. I loved getting to see the characters again.

    In true Artemis Fowl series fashion, I wasn't sure who to root for in the short stories. It was strange to read stories for between books 1 and 2, just because you have to remember everyone still hates everyone. Whoever had this book before me was considerate enough to use pencil in the crosswords. In true Artemis Fowl series fashion, I wasn't sure who to root for in the short stories.

    I love how for all his brilliance and criminal activity, Artemis Fowl is firstly and lastly a little boy who loves his mother :) I liked both of the short stories that were included in this book. We get to read a prequel short story about Holly's initiation and a sequel story in which Mulch Diggums makes a reappearance. The physical anatomy of a dwarf is very intriguing to me.

    Four stars on the cute short stories that give you a little background a peek into some unseen time during the Artemis Fowl world. The interviews I give three stars. Several of them I liked but for some reason the one with Foaly rubbed me the wrong way. I know self centered but wow I didn't realize how bad. I would have hated his character had I read his interview before the books.

It's an enjoyable, quick read, well up to the standards set in the main series.

    The Artemis Fowl Files is a pretty good summery of what the Artemis Fowl series is like. Exciting, interesting, very clever but not well put together. Its lacking a final touch of polish.

    The two bonus stories in this book were fun to read. I'm a big fan of Holly Short, and she was important in both stories. There is some helpful info about the difference between fairies, pixies, dwarfs, trolls, etc. for those who might confuse them sometimes. The two bonus stories in this book were fun to read.

    A little boring, as it's just showing us about the characters and explanations of equipment etc. A good addition to the series if you were slightly confused by it all.

Everdeen puts up a good fight but the spider’s claws scraping his insides quickly change his mind. He tells Turnball that the next initiation is a week from today. To stop him from telling Julius, Turnball has given Evergreen an illegal drug that will erase his memories.

Everdeen puts up a good fight but the spider’s claws scraping his insides quickly change his mind. He tells Turnball that the next initiation is a week from today. To stop him from telling Julius, Turnball has given Evergreen an illegal drug that will erase his memories. While dealing with a fish smuggler, Holly Short is called in by Julius Root and Trouble Kelp for an initiation to become a RECON officer. Julius briefs her on her mission. On Tern Island she’ll hunt him and he’ll hunt her. She’ll be graded on how difficult she makes it for him. If she’s able to hunt him first she’s in. Just like that! Two snipers ambush Holly and Trouble and when they come too they’re face to face with Turnball. Turnball flooded Haven to take out a competitor who tried to get in on his mining scheme and Julius has been after him ever since. Vice versa Turnball has been after him so he can get some peace. Trouble’s plan is simply to use Holly to lure Julius to him. Then Bobb and Unix will snatch him. They tie Holly to the cliff, but she manages to start reactivate her watch and signal Julius. Julius sends Holly back to call for reinforcements, and he finds Turnball alone in a garden. Turnball seems to put up on resistance, and Julius tranquilizes him. But it turns out to be a trap. Turnball has tricked him by using a hologram and lured him into a human dwelling. Thus, zapping his magic. Holly gets an idea from Turnball who tells her as long as the house is standing, she loses. So she dives her shuttle into the house and causes it to collapse. Turnball and Trouble tussle. Then Turnball tries to commit suicide by swolling one of the silver spiders. Julius quickly forces him to swallow coffee and cuffs him. After all that, Julius still doesn’t want to admit Holly, but Trouble stands up for her. Julius asks what she can do to change his mind and she shoots him three times and reminds him of what he said earlier. Julius has no choice but to let Holly into RECON. The Seventh Dwarf Mulch Diggins is lured to the location of a famous tiara by Artemis Fowl. He tells Mulch he needs the blue diamond in the crown for a special laser he’s working on. He offers him the other part of the crown and then blackmails him with informing Julius of his location to help him acquire the crown because someone else has stolen it. It turns out that the “someones” is a troupe of dwarfs (six) lead by Sergi the Significant. Artemis devises a plan. The dwarfs are a part of a circus act and one always stays in the tent to guard the diamond. There’s a part in the show where there’s an exploding box with Sergi inside but what he really does is tunnel back to the tent and the one inside goes out. At the end, they all go out and that’s when Mulch will steal the tiara. So Mulch figures out which direction Sergi is going and uses a sedative and compressed air (so he won't choke) and tunnels to the location. When he has the crown, he ties Sergi to a chair (in case he comes to), but Holly Short shows up to investigate the LEP helmet reported stolen (that Artemis is conveniently disabled from self-destructing). The other dwarfs enter the tent and the second in command (Derph) gives the command to attack her from all sides. They don’t know Mulch isn’t Sergi so he tries to call off the attacks, but Derph senses something off and tells Mulch to remove his mask (or he’ll kill him). Artemis picks then to interfere and tells them he’s Herr Stern (a vey powerful legendary figure that’s come to buy the crown). But it’s not long before Derph suspects him and pulls his knife on him. Luckily Butler arrives and collapses the tent. Artemis gives Mulch a cheque and he leaves. Holly sets off a mind-scrambling grenade that knocks the dwarfs out. Then she injects them with a tracking device. She tries to confront Artemis but stealing a crown isn’t a threat to the LEP. Holly makes him give her the helmet (Mulch stole) and the crown. But as she leaves, we learn Artemis switched the tiara and gave Holly a fake (how did he know to have a fake one on hand tho?) Artemis gives the blue diamond to his mother on the day of his (missing) father’s birthday and promises her he’ll find him. There’s a guide that distinguishes the different fairy types. Then there are interviews from (Holly, Artemis, Butler, Foaly, Julius, and Mulch. Lastly, there’s a school report for Artemis. My Thoughts: This was good! Why couldn’t they all have been written in this simple, comprehensible, way? Both plots were short but enjoyable. Both adding a little more and giving a little more background to the series (Especially the 1st). Reading these definitely proved that series didn’t have to be over-explained and overly technical to make a good plot. Even Artemis’s report was fun to read and exactly what I think his teachers would say about him. Rating: 7 I enjoyed this one a lot more than I did some of the novels in the series!
