Last Flight by Amelia EarhartWell, Im not going to lie I was expecting the book to be a little more personable. It was a great book, but I wanted to know more of what she was feeling and even more about her relationship with her husband. I kept on trying to see if she were ever going to say that she missed him or thought about him from time to time. You know, something more on the romantic side? Which I dont think Amelia even thought like that. The book was mainly a log of her flying, landing and departing. On occasion she did slide in some humor. You come to find while reading this book that Amelia was very corky and silly. Haha.. Shes funny. Though, she talked about Fred more than her husband. I understand because Fred was with her 24/7, but again, I was hoping she would get deep with her log ins. Im not going to critic its writing and its grammatical errors, because well, its Amelia, she can do whatever she wants, lol. But it was sometimes hard to read. I still enjoyed it very much and loved the fact that this book found me at the perfect time; I was cleaning out my dads old book shelf when I found it. Had no paper covering, just very worn out read cover with just the title written in gold. I about to leave on a family trip to North Carolina so I thought Id take it with. I was towards the end of the book and towards the end of the trip when my family decided to stop in Kittyhawk, NC, where the Wright Brothers first made flight. In the museum there were walls covered with iconic people who were very significant to the art of flying. Low and behold there was a portrait and plaque of Amelia Earhart. I stared at her picture for a very long time...and definitely thought, in some weird way, the book found me for a reason. Her life still intrigues me, as well as of course others.
Anyways, if you love Amelia and want to know more about her trip, her last flight, this book is incredible for that.
