    (B+) 78% | Good Notes: Interesting though ultimately trivial. Would have greater effect if included with the novels as supplemental preludes.

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.

    Was a good reminder of old artemis days and the story! Suits well for a lazy reading day. Eoin calfer’s humor is the BEST!

    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. Entertaining.

    (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.

    Nice companion book for Artemis Fowl's series, while we waiting impatiently for the final book, Book 8 (Last Guardian) next year. It contains 2 short stories and tidbits on AF series main characters. I never can get enough of this series, too bad it will end soon :')

    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?

    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.

    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.

I adored getting bonus content from my favorite characters- you get some more of Holly's background which I thought was pretty cool, and a story of Artemis and Mulch that has been referenced in the series but I hadn't known had been written! You can read this companion after having read just one of the 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.

    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.

    Two short stories that give a little background with a few fun puzzles thrown in. Quick and to the point, yet help the readers know more about the world below us.

    This was such a fun read. “The first female in Recon,” groaned the commander. Holly lowered her face to hide a grin that she couldn’t contain. “You’re going to wash out in six months,” continued Root, “and probably cost me a fortune.” He was wrong about the first, but right about the second.” My admiration for Captain Holly Short grew fonder after reading LEPrecon .

Holly lowered her face to hide a grin that she couldn’t contain. “You’re going to wash out in six months,” continued Root, “and probably cost me a fortune.” He was wrong about the first, but right about the second.” My admiration for Captain Holly Short grew fonder after reading LEPrecon . Additionally, it was such a nice short story as it challenges the characters's morale and motives, especially Commander Julius Root. Thus, the characters are more fleshed out (albeit not really; I still liked it so no worries). “Artemis looked skyward one last time. Where is Captain Short now? he wondered. In his mind she would always be there, looking over his shoulder, waiting for him to slip up.” Reading The Seventh Dwarf didn't really gain me anything. I didn't enjoy it thoroughly, except for the part where you consider Artemis and his archnemesis Captain Short. As what I've said in my review of Artemis Fowl, I am a complete sucker for the love?/hate relationship of these two, but I wasn't quite satisfied for the most part. With that said, I still am not into Mulch's character, so I didn't expect to enjoy this part. Anyway, for the good part, here are the things I've enjoyed in the Interviews section. You often get into trouble with Commander Root for not following the rules. Did you use to get into trouble at school for not following the rules, too? “My father always taught me to do what’s right, no matter what the cost. And that’s what I do. Rules are important, but the right thing is more important. ...” (Interview: Captain Holly Short) What keeps you awake at night? “My plans. They run around my head at night, keeping me awake. There is one more thing that keeps me awake. Sometimes I feel bad about the things I have done. If this feeling of guilt strikes, I do a quick online check of my bank balance, and it soon goes away.” (Interview: Artemis Fowl II) Where is your favorite place in the world, and why? “My favorite place in the world is by Master Artemis’s side, wherever that might be. One thing I know for sure is that wherever we are, it will not be boring.” (Interview: Butler) Captain Holly Short, Commander Julius Root, or Foaly: who do you like the most and why? “... Holly is that rarest of creatures—a loyal friend. And you don’t come across many of those.” (Interview: Mulch Diggums) When did you start writing? “My first attempt at proper writing was way back in sixth grade. I wrote a play for the class about Norse gods. Everyone died in the end except me.” (Interview: Eoin Colfer) Finally, I loved how detailed the illustration of Foaly's inventions are.

It also made for a better introduction of Turnball Root, Julius Root’s brother, so he does not come so out of the blue in a later book.    The brief guide to the different People was okay, felt oddly specific to certain characters especially where 'character' and 'loves' is concerned - Artemis, you know better than to make such sweeping generalizations about whole groups based on your knowledge of only a couple of its members. Unfortunately, just as the main series ebooks lacked the Gnommish message along the bottom, there was no key to deciphering Gnommish in this ebook either.    Seeing Foaly’s diagrams was nice, too, to have a solid picture of what I had been imagining all this time. Especially the little touch of ©Foaly on each one.    Finally, there is the story of Fei Fei’s tiara, wherein we get a nice Artemis-Butler-Mulch team-up going on, to steal the tiara which contains a unique blue stone which Artemis needs for a special project – a very special project.    All in all, a fun little side jaunt into the Artemis Fowl/Fairy People universe, with some enriching tales and fun diversions. Favorite quote: “My father always taught me to do what’s right, no matter what the cost. And that’s what I do. Rules are important, but the right thing is more important.” – Interview with Captain Holly Short Continuity/typos: Holly […] had only actually visited the surface twice[.] – LEPrecon, Chapter 2 page 16/16 – So… if Holly had only visited the surface twice, how does she complete the ritual to have magic? Or is it just something that doesn’t get used much in Haven, so one ritual every few decades is plenty? Frankly,I […] fingers.I –Annual Report, page 2/4 – missing spaces after punctuation. And why is only the Social Studies section in all italics? …I’m sure LEP Commander Root, will stumble on it eventually. – The Seventh Dwarf, Chapter 3, page 8/13 – remove unnecessary comma. All I did was to steal a human tiara. – The Seventh Dwarf, Chapter 5, page 27/30 – remove “to”

    I expected it to be more boring than what it was, but especially Holly's story was really interesting to read through as it depicts how she got into Recon and establishes her past solidly. Mulch's story on the other hand was a bit too fast and it did not have the same tension, but fun and heartwarming nonetheless. The contents are not that amazing.

    3.5 stars. The Artemis Fowl series has been one of my favorite series for years. This collection of short stories and interviews and notes has been on my shelf for a long time now, but this is the first time that I've read it. I found both stories fun (though Holly's story was the better of the two), but the supplemental content wasn't all that interesting. A few funny things in some of the interviews, but that's about it. The guide to gnomish was neat. A lot of fun to be back with the cast of ch 3.5 stars. The Artemis Fowl series has been one of my favorite series for years.
