    Dear authorI feel obliged to inform you of several things I have just finished your book Airborn and there were a few things that bothered me For starters do you know what happens when you clog the barrel of a gun? If you do so and pull the trigger it does not make an anti climatic little click that allows your hero to get away from the villain pointing the gun at him It goes boom You are seriously hurt if not possibly deadAnd your wording

    I liked Matt as the protagonist He was an intelligent and passionate young man who loved what he did There is a lot of adventure in this book especially at the end where it got especially exciting Loved the creature that Kate's grandfather discovered and the mysterious island the Aurora lands on Very cool world building However I found Kate extremely annoying In the beginning I thought she was mildly irritating but by the middle she was pus

Airborn author Kenneth Oppel

Hbuckling adventure reminiscent of Jules Verne and Robert Louis Stevenson Kenneth Oppel author of the best selling Silverwing trilogy creates an imagined world in which the air is populated by transcontinental voyagers pirates and beings never before dreamed of by the humans who sail the ski. Ahoy there me mateys This was an audiobook that I picked up because I was looking for a fluffy young adult book I think somewhere I had heard there be dragons Well there be no dragons here But there are cool flying animals airships silly fish loving chefs sea adventures pirates lost islands smart feisty girls daring kind hearted boys and adventureThe other appeal of this particular audiobook was that is was performed by Full Cast Audio According to their website Full Cast Audio FCA has a simple mandate to produce unabridged recordings of fine children s novels using a full cast rather than a single reader Whenever possible we invite the author to serve as narrator They are located back in me very old stomping grounds of Syracuse New York where it snowed every day from Halloween to April I heard about this company because mateys of mine worked as voice actors for the company At yet I had never listened to a single book This is back in the day where audiobooks really weren t a thing and these productions were treated as radio plays So I was delighted to finally hear oneI absolutely loved the main character Matt Cruse and his love for the airship Aurora The ship felt real and lived in Ye got a real sense of Matt s life onboard Matt was poor but plucky hard working and ambitious The story is told from his perspective Joining him on the ship is Kate de Vries an upper class passenger She likes science and photography and out witting her chaperone She is out to solve a mystery and draws Matt into the chaseI thought overall that this was an excellent foray Matt could get a bit overbearing and Kate was a bit short sighted and stubborn But the world building was lovely the pirates were dastardly and the science behind both the ship and creatures was fascinating The plot was intense and full of action I loved the voice performances and the sound effects The side characters were as wonderful as the main duo It was an engaging and uick read It could work as a standalone though it is part of a larger trilogyI want me an airship ArrrCheck out me other reviews at
