Book Review: Airman by Eoin Colfer

Thrust from his pleasant childhood at the hand of a traitor, Conor finds himself rotting in a dismal prison, despised by his family. Conor's burning desire to fly sustains him, shining hope on a future of freedom in the skies.

Airmanwas a thrilling, swashbuckling, high flying adventure from start to finish. I loved the minor characters with their quirks and humor, but this book is sustained almost entirely by its exciting plot. The setting is perfect, described in humorous and realistic detail. I really couldn't put it down.

This really made me think The Count of Monte Cristoby Alexandre Dumas meets Airborn by Kenneth Oppel.

s-factor: !

A few mild ones.

mrg-factor: none

v-factor: ->->

Some sword fighting and fist fighting.

Overall rating: *****


  1. I really liked this one, too. Much, much different from Artemis Fowl.. Glad you liked it.

  2. I was thinking of picking up Artemis, are they different in a good way or a bad way?

  3. This is awesome! I totally loved it. :D

  4. Wasn't it just a unique and fun book?


Love it when you comment!
