Really 3.5 stars. A great plane book....a funny premise, a blonde virus, but serious if applied to other viruses globally. I liked the narrator, so it was a quick, engaging read.

John Irving
“MAYBE YOU SHOULD BE AN ENGLISH MAJOR. AT LEAST, YOU GET TO READ STUFF THAT'S WRITTEN BY PEOPLE WHO CAN WRITE! YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO ANYTHING TO BE AN ENGLISH MAJOR, YOU DON'T NEED ANY SPECIAL TALENT, YOU JUST HAVE TO PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT SOMEONE WANTS YOU TO SEE - TO WHAT MAKES SOMEONE ANGRIEST, OR THE MOST EXCITED IN SOME OTHER WAY. IT'S SO EASY!; I THINK THAT'S WHY THERE ARE SO MANY ENGLISH MAJORS!”
John Irving, A Prayer for Owen Meany

John Cheever
“I've been homesick for countries I've never been, and longed to be where I couldn't be.”
John Cheever

Sheryl Sandberg
“Alice Walker, who observed, “The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.”
Sheryl Sandberg, Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead

“Indeed, it was not unusual for the dais to be littered with panties and boxer shorts after one of Branwell's talks at the MLA." (loc 4363)”
