    I worked as an editor on an early draft of this novel Ever since then I have been telling people about this book What I will always keep with me is the experience of being inside the mind of someone who is losing their memory My own father suffered from dementia so this book resonated at a deep level One particular scene where sounds recalled part of Harry s past will likely stay with me forever it was so vivid There were the descriptions of what triggered memories, the often funny scenes that showed what distracted Harry, and the touching moments showing us what he thought about when he considered his fate Reading this book was a moving experience I also appreciated seeing how the people who loved Harry dealt with each other The author considered all angles of the family dynamic which is important for a book like this Jeremy s experience with parents who were less than focused on his well being reminded me of how I felt as a kid Watching Jeremy find someone to love him and advocate for him at a time when so many kids feel like nobody cares gave the story an additional thread of meaning I found myself longing for my own version of a Harry when I was thirteen.Even though I knew what was going to happen, when I closed the book, I was moved again and marveled at the way people can be so calm in the middle of enormous life changes Once I stopped to consider how much people we meet casually can eventually mean to us This is a special book that I have still not forgotten T...

    I would give the first 3 4 of this book 4 stars, but the last part garners 2 at most so I ll split it down the middle Fun road trip story of a teenage boy his elderly companion I really liked Jeremy J Harry s relationship enjoyed their story, the banter the poignant moments all seemed very real genuine Abby s POV felt right too.But Rose Jackson WTH Even with the knowldge that Rose is supposedly bipolar, there is no excuse for the way this boy was treated You leave your kid alone in an airport, then when he disappears you just ASSUME he must have flown back to his dad s house but don tbother to check Please Not realistic AT ALL One minute she s freaking about about possible pedophiles child killers, the next minute she s refusing to call the cops And Jackson wanting her back but knowing that Jeremy makes her worse A parent choosing a spouse over their child s well being I just didn t get it at all...

    I look at birds carefully now, though the bird theme in Taking Flight is secondary This is a tale about an adolescent named Jeremy, and his unlikely older traveling companion named Harry who has a slowly progressing dementia The two embark on a literal and metaphoric journey after some odd circumstances throw them together It s an interesting look at aging as well as relationships Harry sums up his fear of losing his memory with, I ve gotten used to the missing pieces It s the missing words that scare me most Words are my life Amen to that Harry At times, I thought the interaction between Jeremy ...

    What a beautiful story full of real people I mean real people as in lots of flaws, and that is what made me love them and this book.Taking Flight helped me think about alzheimer s, and relationships in a new way It introduced me to bird watching too I had always thought it sounded i...

    I truly loved this book from beginning to end The conversations between the old man and the young boy were so realistic I felt like I was with them The bird watching was a bit boring at first, but this was what connected the two of them, and as I kept reading I also loved the search for birds.Another reviewer pointed out that no one would just up and take a young person off for a ride across the US Perhap...

    I really don t understand all the good critics on Goodreads about that books The story is just so unrealistic, an old man go on a trip kidnap a teenage boy and everybody find it cute because they watch bird together And to it, the characters are flat, no emotions pass through them Last point, the Alzheimer is really accessory there and is, like the rest, not realistic at all, if you want a good book about the disease read Still Alice, doesn t get better and well done than that one For this book, just don t waste your time Bottom line, if found out this year was really a bad year for public critics sites Goodreads, Rotten tomatoes, IMDB, and many others People are so hip or down about something that we get extreme opinion that just are not true and doesn t mean anything As for Goodreads in particular, I have read a couple of books, that when you read the review, you just have to ask yourself if people are paid to make good review as a marketing action, ore if it s the friend or family of the author that try to create a hip too it I even read a book where the author review her whom book and gave it five stars Confidence is good but still Or review of book with then 1 000 ratings for a book that is not even finish writing by the author This is a really sad thing because that give away the credibility of those sites and you just can t really look at the rating to choose a new book and if it worth it or...

    Harry and Jeremy Jay s journey was so sweet and so dangerous Their accidental meeting on the plane was the catalyst for an adventure that changed not only these two but other characters connected to Harry and Jay as well I feel very strongly that each rescued the other Harry, suffering from Alzheimer s, is able to escape his life and share some memories with Jay while making new ones Jay is able to escape his parents, who are focused on themselves than their son, and connect with Harry One thing that bothered me at the end of the book was the ignorance of Jeremy s parents While I know that teenagers can be difficult to live with, I just don t see how his parents could be so unconcerned about him and his safety Even after he is found, they still do not make much of an effort to be parents Yes, they compromise in the end for Jay s benefit, but I would have thought that this would have been a major wake up call for the...

    This is the story of the unlikely story of an adolescent boy and a elderly man well on the road to Alzheimer s Everything about this book is unlikely Unlikely meeting, unlikely journey, unlikely understanding But it all works.Great conversations between the 2, both having a huge interest in birding.Secondary characters were not very likeable, but I m sure that was part of the master plan The Alzheimer s was handed very well and gave better understanding to the read...
