    About "Kenneth Oppel"

      • Kenneth Oppel

        I was born in 1967 in Port Alberni, a mill town on Vancouver Island, British Columbia but spent the bulk of my childhood in Victoria, B.C and on the opposite coast, in Halifax, Nova ScotiaAt around twelve I decided I wanted to be a writer this came after deciding I wanted to be a scientist, and then an architect I started out writing sci fi epics my Star Wars phase then went on to swords and sorcery tales my Dungeons and Dragons phase and then, during the summer holiday when I was fourteen, started on a humorous story about a boy addicted to video games written, of course, during my video game phase It turned out to be quite a long story, really a short novel, and I rewrote it the next summer We had a family friend who knew Roald Dahl one of my favourite authors and this friend offered to show Dahl my story I was paralysed with excitement I never heard back from Roald Dahl directly, but he read my story, and liked it enough to pass on to his own literary agent I got a letter from them, saying they wanted to take me on, and try to sell my story And they did.

    1. OH man. I devoured this book in a few hours despite its rather large size. I was so absorbed and the pages (get ready for a pun) flew by. This book continues Matt Cruses saga. When it starts, he is serving as an intern on the airship Flotsam. The Flotsam gets blown off course and as it rises to heights untraveled, it discovers a 40-yr-old mystery: the location of the Hyperion, a ghost ship legend to have riches upon riches on board. Because of some complications, the Flotsam must end it's journe [...]


    2. This is the sequel to Oppell’s Airborn, which I read and loved last year. If anything, I liked Skybreaker better. Oppell does a great job capturing the spirit of “classic boy adventures” like Treasure Island and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (which admittedly I never read as a boy, but I caught up with later). In Skybreaker, our young hero Matt Cruse spots a ghost ship of the air, the Hyperion, and inadvertently launches a frenzied hunt for the massive treasure that is supposedly on board. [...]


    3. Ok, I can now officially say that I LOVE this series. I would never have thought I'd enjoy this so much based on that boring, boring cover, but I really, really did. And I also never would have thought I'd enjoy this one more than I did the first one in the series, but I did that too! Ghost ships? Treasure hunting? A mad inventor? Yes, yes, and yes. Also a handsome rogue, a beautiful, fiesty gypsy, a group of sherpas, the sky over Antarctica, romance, danger, intrigue, so fun. I thought it was f [...]


    4. Perfect juvenile adventure story. This is what they should be making into a film, rather than messing about with the next Harry Potter clone.


    5. Get ready ladies and gents for another adventure of epic porportions with the clever Matt Cruse and vivacious Kate de Vries. This time around we find them in Paris where Matt is attending the Airship Academy, but it isn't going as well as he had hoped. He's struggling with some of his courses and isn't living up to people's expectations. Despite that he has stumbled onto another risky endeavor. Matt has seen the legendaryHyperionwhich is believed to be a floating treasure trove. Kate has gotten [...]


    6. A thoroughly enjoyable read. I enjoy the way Oppel writes, and the steam punk, Victorian-inspired world he creates is just my kind of thing. Great characterisation, a fun idea and a clever plot as always.


    7. 12/23/17 Kindle version on sale for $3.99. Highly recommend this series.Sequel to Airborn. I enjoyed this one at least as much as the first book, maybe more. Looking forward to reading the third in the series, Starclimber.


    8. Surprisingly good!I was only going to give this a 3/5, but the last quarter was solid, especially the tie-ins to Greek mythology.


    9. Skybreaker by Kenneth Oppel****4****Matt Cruise made a name and some money for himself after the fateful trip that brought Kate de Vries into his life. Now studying at the Airship Academy Matt feels like his future is in sight. During one of the training missions however, the ship Matt is on, the Flotsam rises thousands of feet into the air by mishap, reaching above the clouds and showing him a glimpse of the Hyperion a ship of legend missing for forty years.Matt returns back to the Academy to f [...]


    10. Know this: I really like steampunk novels. Matt Cruse is on an internship on the Flotsam, when things go awry and he has to save the airship from disaster as it finds a 40-year old ghost ship, the Hyperion. Hyperion contained the riches of a famous inventor and was lost with all hands on board. Back in Paris at the Airship Academy, Matt and Kate are quickly engaged in a race (view spoiler)[against pirates and a fuel consortium (hide spoiler)] to find the ship. Joined by a dashing young entrepren [...]


    11. I thought this was a great sequel to "Airborn;" it was full of the exciting action and well-described characters--not to mention a most intriguing "world"--that made the first book so good. I really like how the author mixes an old-fashioned era with technology, and Matt Cruse's world is realistic and memorable. I was a little surprised by how eerie and scary (for me) some of the chapters and scenes were; I probably shouldn't have been reading those at night ;-) Not that that was a bad thing--I [...]


    12. I nearly forgot I had read the first book which I could very well get in trouble for, seeing how many people love this series. The whole premise of historic fiction with a sci-fi twist to it is starting to have a real appeal to me now. I don't know exactly what they call it though. Matt is just how I remembered him though he gets a bit obsessive about money, being good enough and all that. Kate is true to her character as well. Things get complicated between them, the captain, and the gypsy. I g [...]


    13. "Skybreaker" is a hydrium-powered airship with Everest altitude capability owned by debonair Captain Hal. After Victorian steampunk "Airborn", cabin-boy Matt attends Air Academy and rich Kate studies at the Sorbonne, both in Paris. When our brave lad learns coordinates to the 40-year hidden retreat of a wealthy inventor, mysterious gypsy Nadira appears (view spoiler)[ and saves him (hide spoiler)]. Kate hires Hal and the team of four hunt treasure, still pursued by greedy Barton. I liked the act [...]


    14. I know my friend Deb just loves Oppel, so while coming down from the Sibert jury, I thought this might be a good relaxing escape.It really was all that and more. For a long book, it reads fast fast fast. You can't quit turning the pages. Plots twist, not in an unbelievable way but more in a slight-jaw-dropping, actually gasping/saying things out loud way.This would be a perfect book for boys who like Alex Rider - different but the same sort of plot plot plot action action action.



    15. Dieses Buch hätte einfach nicht als Kinderbuch geschrieben werden sollen. Es gibt keinen Platz für sprachliche Diversität, das richtige Aufbauen der Atmosphäre und die Entwicklung zwischen den Charakteren. Stattdessen dominiert ein strenges Schema, nach welchem die Handlungsabschnitte in vorgegebener Seitenzahl erfolgen (ich habe es mit dem ersten Band verglichen).Dabei ist die Idee, den Himmel als ähnlich unerforschte Domäne wie den Ozean darzustellen genial und die Suche nach dem Schatz [...]



    16. Another great full-cast audiobook version! I very much enjoyed this worthy sequel to the excellent "Airborn" which I loved. (SPOILERS FOR ANYONE WHO HAS NOT READ AIRBORN. And, if you don't want to know a thing about what happens in "Skybreaker" stop reading now and just go read the book!! It's awesome!!!)The story begins with a bang as Matt Cruse finds himself in the midst of a storm while on board an airship. It was strange at first that he wasn't on the Aurora but, of course, he has joined the [...]


    17. In this sequel to Airborn, we pick up about where we left off. Matt’s taken his money and used it to enroll in the Airship Academy, sending some home for his mother and sister’s. Kate has enrolled in the Sorbonne and taken up flying lessons. The adventure begins with Matt’s internship about the Flotsam.Assistant to the Navigator, he’s learning things he never really took the time to notice board the Aurora. He was always more concerned with the flying than the routes. And while he apprec [...]


    18. Kenneth Oppel’s “Airborn” – the first in a YA series starring Matt Cruse – was a spectacular and thoroughly enjoyable adventure novel of the classic kind. Featuring airships, pirates, journeys to exotic places and narrow escapes, Oppel took all the familiar elements from the works of Jules Verne and R.L. Stevenson and made them his own.Such a piece of work warrants a sequel and with “Skybreaker”, Oppel brings back all the familiar goodies.This time Matt Cruse, the enigmatic dreamer [...]


    19. Airborn hero, Matt Cruse is finally studying at the Airship Academy in Paris. Part of his school work is a hands on 2 weeks mission aboard an airship. Unluckily for Matt, he is chosen to join the crew of the Flotsam a wreck of a ship with a rather nutso captain. A mysterious sight draws the ship up, up and away. The sighting of a ship at 20,000 feet draws the captains attention and regardless of safety he sets off in pursuit. The Hyperion was lost 40 years earlier supposedly with all hands on de [...]


    20. This series is fast becoming one of my favorites! A great deal of this has to do with the protagonist being such a wonderful, upstanding, young man who tries his hardest to do what's right, and questions himself when he falls short (even if his failings were not from his own actions).Oppel has created a new cast of supporting characters for Skybreaker and they are just as detailed and intriguing as the cast of Airborn (first book in the series). Returning to Skybreaker are certain other favorite [...]


    21. When you finish a book lickity-split, you know it's good. Kenneth's Oppel second instalment to his Matt Cruse series/trilogy was about him, Kate De Vries (and a few others) finding the elusive ship Hyperion (if only the publisher was of the same name lol), rumoured to hold great secrets and great rewards.In terms of a book, it followed quite a linear model, with a great mysterious plot, developing characters, clever plot-comebacks, and of course, romantic subplots (because who doesn't like those [...]


    22. PERSONAL RESPONSE I thought this book was really good because it has a lot of action, suspense, and the slightest touch of romance. This series has to be the best series that i have ever read because of its contents. PLOT SUMMARY This book is about a boy named Matt Cruse who has seen a ship that was supposed to be destroyed but turns out to be just floating around above the clouds at 20,000 feet aimlessly and he is the only one who knows of its whereabouts. As soon as the world hears about him k [...]


    23. I liked this one much better than the first. It was deeper, and the main character, Matt, actually started acting like a person rather than a one-dimensional name on a page. It focused more on the characters than the plot, and had quite a bit of romance. Matt practically spends the whole book lusting over Kate. It was also good to get some new characters. Hal was complex. I had trouble figuring out what to make of him, and whethere to trust him or not, which was fine. Same goes for Nadira, who I [...]


    24. This time, Matt Cruse and Kate di Veris are embarking on a near impossible, breathtaking journey.And I mean breathtaking.They join a mysterious gypsy named Nadria and a rich, important man named Slater to seek a 40-year-old ghost ship called the Hyperion; and a chance to discover it's riches, they are the first humans to set eyes on it besides the now dead captain of the ship, Grunel. The altidude is a deadly 20,000 feet and they only have a few hours to search the ship before evil sky pirates f [...]


    25. I took this book from the library for my daughter to read, but could not resist dipping into it myself, and was quickly hooked. The book, and "Airborn" the previous book in the series (if this becomes a series) is about airships - I have not read the previous book, but there is enough detail in this book that it is not totally necessary to have read the first to understand the second.The Protagonist, Matt Cruse, is a 16 year old going through the Airship Academy, and the book is about an adventu [...]


    26. While I loved, loved the first book in this series, this book didn't impress me as much.It's still great rollicking adventure, but it feels a bit to formulaic, especially the romance part. It seems the relationship between Matt and Kate is reset, and goes through the same motions as in the first book.I will definitely pick up the 3rd and final part of the series, as it still was a page turner, but I hope it will focus more on the adventure and less on the 'does she like me or not?' romance parts [...]


    27. "If my heart were a compass, you'd be North."No. This "couple" does not get to use that. NO.I liked this one a fair bit more than Airborn. The love triangle/quadrangle wasn't the worst I've read but unnecessary and frustrating. The plot was a bit better and not nearly so, for lack of a better word, worthless. Characters still annoying or, in Matt's case, blah.


    28. In this sequel to "Airborn," Matt and Kate are going higher than ever.Matt can hardly believe his luck when he is allowed to go on a quest for the legendary Hyperion; a strange craft that an eccentric inventor left floating in the stratosphere ages ago. With Matt as one of the crew on an immense airship bound for the airborn treasure, and Kate hoping to discover new species high above the clouds, this is yet another amazing adventure of the skies that does not disappoint.
