The Aeronaut

With a low survival rate but Preston is determined to make a difference Along the way he meets a man he'd call his best friend and a woman he'd call the love of his life but a top secret mission behind enemy lines and a heart full of jealousy threatens to tear the three of them apart forever. I have a big ol history crush on World War I so I m predisposed to like novels set in that time period Adding some steampunked Rocketeer style jetpacks to the war brings something new to the table The sci fi elements don t feel out of place and the tactics that are offered by this change in technology are intriguing Young creates an interesting hero in Robert Preston and you ll remember him and his allies his enemies and his adventure long after you re done reading

The Aeronaut is a tense story full of action espionage and romance set in an alternate version of World War I Computational machinery has allowed both sides to make great technological leaps that have made trench warfare even deadlier for the soldiers at the front Some men go to war to defend. From the death and destruction that life and war bring to the healing process and the parts that never uite heal The Aeronaut is an astounding piece of literature I cannot recommend enough It reads as the protagonist s final apology for a condition he could do little to control and the lives it destroyed Young carefully interlaces what is to come through out the text so subtly it demands multiple readings Every character from Preston and his central circle to his brief chance meetings are full and wondrous Sara the love of his lifetime inspires as much curiosity as the pair of intelligence men he spends a fraction of the time with and I am just as charmed by Jacue a pilot who appears for only a dozen pages as I am by his dearest friend LeBeau a character who comes second to only our protagonist The prose is steadfast unerring charged and at times simply endearing in short beautifully memorable Young does not flinch from the unsavory and terrifying details of war or love for that matter You can read Hemingway s influence clearly not merely in the adaptation of tone and plot but also in that you will assume Young lived this himself A stunning work of art

    I've read a lot of books this year just shy of fifty so far Some of them blend into the background forgotten in the haze of so many characters and plots This isn't one of those books I generally avoid war books but the steam punk elements jet packs and dirigibles got me in the door The characters and tense exciting situations kept me there The world is clear and feels real you feel for Preston as he navigates through violence and relatio
