Teaser Tuesday: Airborn

Hooray, I'm back in action! I'm reading Kenneth Oppel's Airborn and loving it. It's a beautifully written book, and a cracking adventure. I'm not even 100 pages in and I know I'll be buying this one, and probably the entire series. We have it catalogued under JFIC for older kids, but I think anyone would enjoy this book. It's narrated in the first person by one Matt Cruse, cabin boy on the luxury airship Aurora. He's a really charming narrator, pitch-perfect for his age but not annoying at all, and interested in all the things I'm interested in about his world. And his world is so cool.

Teaser Tuesdays are hosted by Should Be Reading. It works as follows:
  • Grab your current read.
  • Open to a random page.
  • Share two teaser sentences from somewhere on that page.
  • Be careful not to include spoilers!
  • Include the title and author.

From Airborn by Kenneth Oppel, p75:

"I stared at that last page for a while, the final words, the nothingness after it, and it got me feeling strange, so I had to close the book. I felt a keen disappointment."

Thanks for stopping by, all! It just gets better. There was one part involving a snake last night that had me giggling out loud.
