This Title No Longer Available - Please Do Not Order

by Kenneth Oppel

This Title No Longer Available - Please Do Not Order

Winner 2007 Audie Award for Children's Titles Ages 12+

Finalist 2007 Audie Award for Audio Drama

Finalist 2007 Audie Award for Multi-Voiced Performance

An incredible swashbuckling adventure, set in a world where great airships ply the skies and there are unknown lands and strange creatures still to be discovered. You’ll love the characters, and the story has the drive and verve of a Saturday morning serial.

Reminiscent of Jules Verne and Edgar Rice Burroughs—with a touch of Robert Louis Stevenson—this is adventure writing at its finest. And with its cast of larger-than-life characters, it was just made for our full cast treatment.

This is the kind of classic writing that can be enjoyed by all ages.

Listen to samples from this audiobook:

Sample 2Matt saves the gondola. (2:57, about 3.4)

"There is a tremendous difference between a FULL CAST reading and a regular audiobook. A full cast audiobook, and by that I mean a FULL CAST AUDIO production, is as close to an audio drama as you can get without actually becoming a dramatization. Each character has his or her own actor, this along with descriptive text and punctuating music transmogrifies the unabridged words into vibrant mental images. I’d be willing to bet that if you were to hook-up a person listening to Airborn to a Functional Magnetic Resonating Imaging machine the FMRI would show tremendous activity in the visual cortex."
    — SFFAudio
"A variety of talented performers assist narrator David Kelly in a superb reading of this remarkable saga. ... Majestic music provides transitions in this nonstop heroic adventure, a Selected Audiobooks for Young Adults, 2007, choice."
    — Booklist March 15, 2007
"This full-cast recording of Oppel's alternate-world airship adventure completely envelops readers in the listening experience: ropes creak; gasses hiss; stirring, buoyant music marks transitions. Each character is presented by a different reader (thirty-two in all), and the performances are superb."
    — Hornbook (Audio Review)
"pure fun . . . The program as a whole is a nearly unalloyed pleasure."
    — AudioFile APR/ MAY 07
