THE FLYING CLOUD, R-505

Light, fun, and definitely worth a look

By Von, member

Nov 26, 2009: I have just read a few chapters of this story, and am finding it a fun read; without a hint of vampires, werewolves, or any other such modern fascinations.

I enjoy the Wodehouseque British humor, and the light characterization of the various minor characters.

I vastly enjoy the way he keeps various minor humor elements going throughout . . . two men who bet over anything, a propensity to characterize foreign nationals in interesting ways, takeoffs from Star Trek, etc.

One thing I find rather confusing is that the author, from time to time, puts in little bits of summary; as if we were reading the second book in a series or something.

It is a very light read . . . which was just what I wanted this evening.
