Eoin Colfer, author of the wildly popular Artemis Fowl series, has once again struck gold with his latest book, Airman. The book is readable and engaging, combining Colfer’s typical laugh-out-loud wit with serious exploration of the limits of human endurance, both physical and emotional. The book follows Conor Broekhart, a young scientist, as he navigates the trials of young love and the dangers of political intrigue, all while constantly dreaming of and working toward the day when he will take to the skies in a heavier-than-air flying machine. Whether you are already a Colfer fan, or are simply looking for a fantastic new adventure to lose yourself in, Airman is for you.
