In the 2018 Reading Challenge “The Philosopher’s Flight” fell under the category of book published this year.
“The Philosopher’s Flight” is sure to dazzle, and impress readers’ looking for a historical novel with a magical twist. The setting: World War 1 America with women having the ability to fly and transport, while the men play supporting roles. The tale includes family conflict, a young man coming of age. flying, romance, and triumph. The simple version, it includes the right elements to make it a story worth sharing.
The world Tom Miller creates captures the senses of the reader, giving them the full experience. I found myself vocally expressing my feelings multiple times throughout the course of the book. The writing and story grabbed a hold of me and just wouldn’t let go.
The best, or at least one of my favorite parts, it the coming of age story that takes place. In this world where woman have the ‘cool’ flying jobs, men have the supporting roles. Except, of course, for a young man looking to follow in his mother’s footsteps. He has his mind set to achieving his goal, while others keep telling him it can’t happen. This mostly, doesn’t stop him. He wants to do it, and achieve nothing less than the best. His perseverance is amazing, and something I admired.
What first attracted me to this book was that the woman dominated this world. What kept me interested was Tom Miller’s writing. This book is sure to impress many other reader’s like myself, and I hope you take the time to check it out.
