Mendle Orion is a writer who lives at the intersection of fiction and reality. He idealizes love and cynically rails against a world that wastes his dreams. The man's life is forever changed the day he meets a mysterious young woman with intense blue eyes and total amnesia who looks at urban life as though she's seeing it for the first time.

A story to recharge the weary soul

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 03-03-08

I happened upon Flight by chance, or did I ? The universe plays all kinds of cosmic tricks. What I found in this story was a character who was very much like me. Weary from a long time of being misunderstood and ridiculed for thinking the impossible possible. With each page I became more and more drawn into this delicate balance between science and fiction.

Metaphors for life, and lessons that have taken mankind thousands of years to learn, spill out of this book and into the reader's mind like water to a thirsty imagination. My favorite point of all is love and how powerful it is as a force for creation and connection in the Universe.

This book is on the top of the list of novels I regularly recommend to my friends. Especially those struggling with their existence in the physical world.

Now, on top of having read the book, I can hear the inflections and drama of the author herself reading this story. I couldn't imagine much better than if she were sitting next to me in my car reading this story aloud.

I really appreciate this story and feel lucky to have experienced it both in print and voice. Thank you Vanna for changing my life and recharging my creative vision! Keep up the good work!!!!
