It's true.I never read the word they write on the back!!!Usually it's rubbish!!!They totally miss the point of the whole book or copy paste the most boring part!<<

Anyway,I would really like to read Airman!I don't know will I buy it.I think I won't even have a chance any time soon but I would like too see a new Colfer's book that is not related to Artemis!!!Of course I can't wait for AF book 6 but Airman could be something interesting in a meantime!Probably borrow it from a library will be a better idea!

They've got the cover and other information about it.

So nobody here has actually read it?

My Moms a librarian so she put it on hold for me. I want to read it and see how good it is before I actually buy it for twenty dollars. It looks really different from the other books he's done. What the heck I know its different from the other books hes done just by reading the description! :?

There was a magazine selling airman for £4.99, free post and packing, so I ordered it. I can't wait for it to arrive.

I saw it in the book store, but i didn't bought iit, because it is too expensive, more than a double of Artmeis Fowl.
But there is a paper card in the book(an advertisment) of Artmeis Fowl and the Time Paradox. it willl come on August , i can't wait!!!!

Quite good actually. A little older than Artemis Fowl. But a very good book! :D

Is anyone here going to enter the Airman contest to build your own flying Machine? Last I checked there were only 4 people entered. :)
