    Story
    (52)

    Originally published in 1973, the groundbreaking, uninhibited story of Isadora Wing and her desire to fly free caused a national sensation. In The New York Times, Henry Miller compared it to his own classic, Tropic of Cancer and predicted that "this book will make literary history..." It has sold more than 12-million copies. Now, after 30 years, the revolutionary novel known as Fear of Flying still stands as a timeless tale of self-discovery, liberation, and womanhood.

    Story
    If you could sum up Fear of Flying in three words, what would they be?

    Amazing. Like iris Murdoch but happier.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Narrarator was good but a tad too bubbly for me. I like hope Davis but she had a desperation in her voice which frustrated me. But I can't imagine another reader now


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I couldn't stop listening to it - the authors insight
    And experience were so real yet outrageous at times.


    Any additional comments?

    Wish I had read this one - think I'll have to re-read it now!
