's review

liked it

Having not read the description before reading this book, I wasn't aware that it was an anthology. This is no one's fault but my own, but, since I thought I was getting an original work of Kibuishi's, I found myself disappointed.

That said, I didn't give up on reading it. Each entry is a short story that has something to do with flight (save for a few). Most took on an artistic expression, as if to show off the author's style. As such, some of the stories are a bit out there. I liked a few, but didn't care for them all, which is why I'm not giving this book a "really liked" rating.

Something about this reminds me of the Robot Carnival anime, which is a collection of different animation styles. Each story has something to do with robots, like this does with flight, but otherwise they were all very different . . . that is the case with Flight too.

In order to enjoy this story, it's best to put on your creativity cap and look at it as more of an art form than a collection of well written stories.

Good review! Thanks for the heads up on that one.

James Maxon Yeah, I think for the right audience, it's definitely worth a look. I'm just not sure I was the right audience.
