1st review for FLIGHTPACK

5 STARS! A FINE SERIES


I've tremendously enjoyed both of these literate, character-driven novels. I can't help but be reminded of Heinlein's juvie, Have Spacesuit, Will Travel, which was a particular favorite when I was very young, some fifty years ago. These are, of course, more modern in their views (thank goodness!) and directed toward a more mature audience (not that they are 'adult' in the sense we employ now; rather the vocabulary is more sophisticated than Heinlein's), though I can easily imagine a bright adolescent enjoying them as much as I have. All in all, without troubling to recapitulate the plot, the series is imaginative and engaging, and Brother is a far more interesting companion than Oscar, though he may harbor darker designs upon our hero.


Very well done!
