I have both listened to and read Airman, and enjoyed it both times! This book is definitely one of the darker books in Eoin Colfer's lengthy literary repertoire, but is also a complex, interesting read that kept me hooked at every twist and turn. The plot is well rounded and explores the flying machines of the early 1800's through new eyes. The characters are well described and written, their actions and humor lighting up the page.
For prospective readers: I would definitely listen to the audio book! The guy reading it does the voices well, and is able to add a really good element of suspense to the already very dramatic scenes in the book. Another point for Colfer in my book!
