Anupama is seeing figures at her window. But no one seems to believe her. With her head dug deep in comic book fantasies, she is not sure if she is really seeing ghosts or is simply hallucinating.

Then one night, the lives of everyone residing at Swapnalok Society change forever.

Books: Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer (Age: 14+ years)

Books: Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer (Age: 14+ years)
Reviewed by Gayatri Somaiya

When I was younger and had tried reading 'Artemis Fowl', I remember not liking it. However, I eat my words because I finally understand what the hype is all about. What I loved about this book was the development of the characters. From the main characters–Artemis Fowl and Holly Short–to the others, everyone has their own unique characteristic, which makes them endearing and memorable. I also love the relationship between Artemis and Holly. I loved how Holly was such a strong female advocate and kept on standing up for a girl’s role in situations and how she always matched Artemis in terms of intelligence. It is always refreshing to read a book whose story is not predictable.
