REVIEW: The Boundless by Kenneth Oppel

An action adventure with ‘runaway hit’ written all over it

Kenneth Oppel's Boundless – on the right track

New York Times bestselling author Kenneth Oppel (yes, he’s the guy who wrote the amazing Printz Honor winning children’s book Airborn) is back on track with another non-stop adventure. The Boundless is a train like no other – think of a Titanic of the railways and you’ve got the picture – with even a Turkish bath, a cinema, and a circus! But there are also rumours that the train contains amazing treasure concealed in a funeral car, and when Will Everett witnesses a murder, there are twists and turn at every stop. For fans of action and nail-biting tension, Opel’s runaway adventure is a thrilling ride, first class in every sense.
