Ya not as good as old Arty. It was an excellent compelling read but it was......jumpy. I find the event jumping or some of the description (or lack of) made it confusing. Colfer could have added a litte more.....reasons for why things happen. But overall it was a very good book and storyline.

I loved Airman, it made a change from all the magical fantasy stuff I read. Artemis Fowl is still better though. But why did Victor die *sobs* he was so awesome...

I love Connor. He's one of my favorite characters by Colfer. It wasn't a match to Arty, but it is definitely one of my favorite books. :D

And tomb-stones where flowers should be:
And Priests in black gowns, were walking their rounds,
And binding with briars, my joys & desires.

I found Connor's story very interesting and his love story with Isabella cute, but I do wish that Colfer had given some of the action to Isabella, made her a bigger part of the story, a heroine. Colfer always focuses on the boys, his only exception, of course, being Holly.

My favourite was Princess Isabella.

I liked Isabella, but as others have said, I do wish she had had a stronger role in the story.

I love the fact that Airman reminded me a bit of The Princess Bride. X'D It kept me on the edge of my seat, and I was devastated when I read about his imprisonment.

Definitely one of my favorite books by Eoin.

Gosh, it's been ages since I've read Airman, I have fond memories from it though. Probably worth another read through.
