I've read many Kenneth Oppel books, and I think Airborn is one of the best he has written. By the end of the first paragraph, I was already fully submerged in the story. The plot is filled with one exciting moment after another. Kenneth Oppel's AIRBORN is a high adventure in every sense. 15-year-old Matt Cruse, cabin boy on the Aurora, a luxury hydrium-powered airship, tells a tale that never flags for 400 pages.

The book Airborn is a very good book about how a boy works very hard on an airship to support his family who are in a lot of crises, due to the fact that the father had died on the same airship

Temporarily out of stock. Ships from and sold by NCASales. The book Airborn is a very good book about how a boy works very hard on an airship to support his family who are in a lot of crises, due to the fact that the father had died on the same airship. I like how the book shows that how the boy does not lose hope and feels all is lost when he does not get the promotion which he had worked on for so long and that would help his family.

I whirled, expecting the worst, but instead saw Bruce Lunardi, hunched over, beckoning to us. I saw the whole thing, he said. letely shielded us from the Aurora. Bruce’s lips were unnaturally red in his pale face, his skin greasy with sweat. I looked at his leg and saw that it was still bleeding through the rough bandage he’d torn from his shirt. I asked him. I was worried about you two, he said. He seemed anxious to explain. When you distracted the cat, I ran.

Sailing toward dawn, and I was perched atop the crow's nest, being the ship's eyes. We were two nights out of Sydney, and there'd been no weather to speak of so far. I was keeping watch on a dark stack of nimbus clouds off to the northwest, but we were leaving it far behind, and it looked to be smooth going all the way back to Lionsgate City. Like riding a cloud. . . .

Matt Cruse is a cabin boy on the Aurora, a huge airship that sails hundreds of feet above the ocean, ferrying wealthy passengers from city to city. It is the life Matt's always wanted; convinced he's lighter than air, he imagines himself as buoyant as the hydrium gas that powers his ship. One night he meets a dying balloonist who speaks of beautiful creatures drifting through the skies. It is only after Matt meets the balloonist's granddaughter that he realizes that the man's ravings may, in fact, have been true, and that the creatures are completely real and utterly mysterious.

In a swashbuckling 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 skies.
