Fly Twice Backward: Fresh Starts in a World of Troubles by David McCracken
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
"Fly Twice Backward: Fresh Starts in a World of Troubles" by David McCraken is an alternative history/science-fiction story about a man returning to his youth with all the knowledge of an adult. Who hasn't thought and fantasized about the possibilities of that very scenario? Told from multiple points of view and enhanced with links to relevant songs, plays, shows, movies, books, and the like throughout the text, "Fly Twice Backward" has the makings of a classic. There's never a dull moment considering everything this novel includes; time travel, history, romance, fantasy, action, and sci-fi addressing everything from political and environmental issues to morality and love.
This thing is 700+ pages long and it truly could have gone on and on without losing my attention. McCracken is a true story-teller full of imagination and gusto who writes characters a reader can fall in love with. "Fly Twice Backward" is a book I will be recommending a lot now and in the future.
