    One thought on “Flight”

    1. Flight by Rosie Dub is set in Sydney and Tasmania, Australia. The prologue is told from Fern's point of view, she remembers being an unborn baby and on the day she was born her mother, Joan, was told by a gardener who came back from the brink of death only to have gained the ability to see the future that Fern would be the death of her father. Her father Eric Hannson, on hearing this news proceded to hit Joan so hard that it caused the contractions leading to Fern being born early and on the str [...]

    2. While this is well-written, it is a pretty standard run of the mill girl discovers hidden abilities, fulfills a prophesy, embarks on a difficult soul-searching journey and gets a guy story. It's so predictable that any tension that surfaces is soon diffused. There are no surprises here. Still, for those who love this done to death plot, you'll be happy with Dub's effort. Her characters are excellent as is her narrative.

    3. From the get go I was hooked on this book. The concept of reincarnation and past lives and their repercussions interfering with present ones has always been a concept that I feel isn't explored enough in well written stories these days. I read this book fairly quickly, in two sittings, which shows just how much I couldn't put it down. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good supernatural thriller.

    4. at first, I had absolutely no sympathy for the main character, Fern. She seemed whiny, and ungrateful for everything that people were trying to do for her. she was unmotivated, and bored with life. Later on, her character started to pick up as she became involved in supernatural happenings, and then it dissipated again as the book turned into a generic love story, and confusing mess of supernatural ickadable, but not very satisfying.

    5. This one was so intriguing. It was a little hard to crack, to begin with, but then I found myself being pulled along by it. I particularly enjoyed the latter portion of the book, the last 150 pages or so. Even though it is well trodden territory, what with supernatural elements and such it is told in an original way, and that is worth the ticket price.

    6. The Excitement of this ARC copy that i got from Harper Collins Publishers is killing me. *Stab stab stab*Look out for this one people, Feb 2012, that's what it says on my copy! I'm reading you straight after i get my head around To kill a Mockingbird.

    7. This book was different from what I had expected, in the best possible way. It was thought-provoking and engaging and the ending was not trite (which it could have been very easily). I found the characters self-indulgent at moments, but not so much so that it was unrealistic or annoying.
