The descriptive language, the humorous pieces and the exceptional style made me believe it is one of the most entertaining stories I have ever read. Four and a half stars, no doubt about it!
Based a couple hundred years ago, it starts off with a boy named Conor obsessed with conquering the skies and building planes. It then delves into all parts of his life, which all come in handy for the climax when army leader Hugo Bonvilain thinks of a dastardly plan to become a kind of dictator on the small but incredibly rich islands that they live on.
From princesses to luminous coral to blind musicians and the mysterious 'Sheep', Colfer has produced a truly delicious feast with unrivaled skill.
I recommend it for all those with a good understanding of a brilliant story and a touch of humour as well.

I loved this book, probably one of my favorites this year. Conner is a noble hero who often uses brains over brawn. The book easily takes you through many years in Conner's life and doesn't drag at all. The supporting characters are well developed. Fencing, flying, and daring rescues and escapes make this one exciting book. In some ways it reminded me of the Count of Monte Cristo and other classic literature, except in
