    Night Flight

    It seems the aspects of a book that stick most with me are often not the plot, but the characters. That is the case with Night Flight. The plot is suspenseful and full of drama, in every sense of that word. But it is the characters and how they reacted to the events depicted that floated through my thoughts between reading sessions and after closing the virtual covers for the last time.

    In the beginning, I wasn’t sure how I would react or relate to a story where the two primary characters were two women in a romantic relationship. Would it be voyeuristic, in the same way female-on-female porn appeals to some straight men? I imagined some people might think it could be revolting or difficult to relate, because it is so different from their own experiences, as it is from mine? The answer to both of these, for me, was a resounding no. While there are a few mild sex scenes, it didn’t feel voyeuristic, at least no more so than a comparable scene with a straight couple. It wasn’t revolting. And relating to the characters was easy, with enough parallels to my own experiences to understand, yet enough differences to be intriguing and feel like I received new insights into human nature. It turns out we’re more the same than different.

    A Gripping Tale of Love and Loss:

    Night Flight, by Alessa Adamo, is a fast-paced, moving tale of love and loss, guilt and redemption. The complex characters, including an anguished mother, her tough, prickly, vulnerable same-sex partner, and her troubled teen-aged daughter, hold the reader's sympathies. The scenes in which the story is played out, including the early morning Tokyo fish market, a lonely diner in the Tehachapi Mountains, a bikers' bar on the Northern California coast, and a storm over the Pacific, are vividly presented. This book is an excellent read for summer, winter, or almost any occasion, though perhaps not during a night flight to Japan.

    A Compelling Read - Highly Recommended!

    In Night Flight, Alessa Adamo masterfully takes us on an emotional ride through the ups and downs of relationships, the devastation of loss, and the redemption of love. She is as adept at gripping scenes of terror, as she is at plumbing the depths of a grief and the search for meaning. A must read!

    Not sure

    Not sure how to feel about this book. It started off pretty slow for me, took me a while to get into it. But the middle of the book was great! The descriptions of the feelings had me pulled in and hooked. Then the end kind of jumped around a bit almost like during editing a chapter got deleted? Then the end brought a bit of a religious/hear after element that wasn't in the rest of the book. So I gave it 3 stars, because it wasn't a bad book, I want people to read it.

    Depressing

    This book had lots of issues. Some of the writing was excellent, but it also jumped a lot. The overall effect was depressing. Just when things started to get better another unbearable event occurred. Something good never happened. The end was unlikely at best. Forced at worse. This could have been a good story and at times it was. But the imbalance of angst and overt dramatic situations with out any real respite was extreme and there was never a resolution to the problems that were created. Just more problems.

    Very disppointed. Very little dialog, the author writes in the narrative not letting the story develop through the characters action and dialog.  I cannot reconmend this
    book.
    Glad the book was free and BN had a lesbian novel?
    But I was disappoint with the writing style and tone of the book,
    epeats the theme of  feeling guilty for being gay, stereo description of the characters such s "butch hair cut" i felt i was reading a book from the 1950's filled with negative & low self esteem
