Book Review: First Flight

Book Review: First Flight by Mary Robinette Kowal
Five out of Five stars for being imaginative.

(Said with the movie intro voice)

“In a world where people time travel, there is a woman.”

(Sounds of gunfire going off in the background, propellors starting up)

“One-hundred years in the making.”

(People screaming, slo-mo camera action of a guy in early 1900’s knickers running toward the camera).

“There is only one way to get it.”
(Orchestral tense music)

“There is only one way to get her there.”
(Building Up music)

“There is only one way she can survive.”
(Orchestral music reaches a crescendo and violins play faster while shots of various action scenes change every .3 seconds on the screen)

“There is only one….First Flight”
(Fade out while someone is lying on the ground, breathing their last breath. Applause, applause. Lights up)

  1. I just have to tell you that this cracks me up.

  2. Wow, I feel honored to have you post on my little blog Mary!

    Now I feel like I didn't do your story justice with my silliness. I really did enjoy it.
