Kitty Hawk This book brought me to tears from the shear beauty of the writing and also made me laugh numerous times This is a keeper I can see myself reading it every couple of years for the rest of my life.I went right out and got The Wright Stuff, a dvd done on PBS s American Experience, just to see what Kitty Hawk, the Wright Brothers, and their flying machines really looked like.I highly recommend this book Lovely story about a young, restless beach gal and her affection for the intensely shy Orville Wright Madeleine is sassy and humorous God, I feel like a farm animal compared to him He wears shiny brown shoes, argyle socks and chene wool The all silk warp imparts a sheen that makes him look splendid He s brilliance, defined, sitting on poverty s front porch, watching the sun

her mind and sets her goals no matter what I learned a great deal about the Wright brothers, about their odd, unbreakable bond, about an illness that perhaps went undiagnosed The writing is wonderful If sunrise made a sound, it would be the tinkering of fingers over the high keys of a piano Light strikes the water so beautiful it seems to make music The book has its fair share of humor too Just one thing Why exactly do you like this gentle man Here s that question again He continues, Mister Wright is a bitodd Well, both of them are odd They re Yankees and they want to fly, for God s sake So I wonder, what s so appealing about him The Outer Banks are truly special and so is the book This is a book that s going to be a hard one to follow I don t think I ll be able to immediately get lost in another time and place and story This one is the type of tale that after you read the last page, you must savor it for a while.This is the story of so many thingsof how the impossible is actually possible with persistence, of repairing what s broken even if it s yourself, of moving on and leaving the past in the past, of how those with Asperger s are so misjudged and misunderstood This is a book that s going to be a hard one to follow I don t think I ll be able to immediately get lost in another time and place and story This one is the type of tale that after you read the last page, you must savor it for a while.This is the story of so many thingsof how the impossible is actually possible with persistence, of repairing what s broken even if it s yourself, of moving on and leaving the past in the past, of how those with Asperger s are so misjudged and misunderstood And it s the story of Wilbur and Orville s time on Kitty Hawk.The book mostly follows a young girl Madeline She steals the show Yea, the first flight is a huge deal, but this girl just steals the show She s unmarried unusual for the time and bitter about it, but she doesn t want some stinky coarse sailor She wants a gentleman She s forced to be independent and stand her ground She s spunky, humorous, realistic with flaws and all there s some depression and substance abuse , caring, and though she s not without fear, she faces them every time.She falls for Orville or perhaps, the idea of him, of a gentleman That s another themeAre you in love with the person or in love with the idea of being in love But as she says, Orville is married to his brother, and she can t compete with the desire to be the first to fly He won t be distracted from his goal.It s also at times, incredibly funny The town and its people will having you rolling on the floor laughing Madeline herselfher thoughtsare humorous He even looks like a bird And those big ears If he wants to fly, all he needs to do is learn to flap those things All I hear now is the dog sniffling under the table Spot sniffs so hard, I imagine those crumbs going up his nose rather than inside his mouth If you drink enough water, you don t know you re hungry But if you drink enough beer, you don t know you re thirsty I don t know the first thing about Aspergers s, but after reading this, I feel like I understand the affliction and why those afflicted behave the way they do Ms Staley managed to educate me while at the same time entertain me I have a newfound respect for those who suffer from this At first I thought Orville was a bit weirdand I had a hard time warming to him, but then the book began to reveal stuff to us Fear of rejection Stick with what you re good atand I understood I never did warm to his brother Wilbur though Now that guy just plain irritated me.I m not done.full review I thought I d like this book I wanted to like this book historical fiction, with an interesting cast and setting Well, researched and conveyed the scene of time and place well, but I just couldn t connect I had to force myself through 100 pages.The main characters voice sounded too much alike even though they couldn t have beendifferent people Hard to imagine someone addicted to Coca Cola, even in the bad old cocaine days.It also suffers from the unfortunate modern punctuation style I thought I d like this book I wanted

suffers from the unfortunate modern punctuation style of omitting the comma setting the person addressed off from the sentence That sometimes creates confusion It certainly breaks the flow of the prose as the reader tries to puzzle out what the author meant.Someone else might enjoy it I wanted to, but didn t Gave it two stars instead of one because the plot and development were so good It was interesting to learnabout the Wright Brothers and Kitty Hawk and life there in the early 1900 s The fictional characters were very realistic My favorite books are historical fiction I hadn t realized

surprising This was a somewhat odd story, but one that really seemed to humanize the characters in a really neat way The essential premise is that the Wright Brothers recorded oddness and the biographers seem to agree on this point was in fact something like Asperger s or something on the autism spectrum which was not an available diagnosis in the very early 1900s I found this to be a

unfinished The reader is left with an understanding of what life was like for Kitty Hawkers in the early 1900 s I would recommend it to anyone remotely interested in that time period, the Wright Brothers, living in or who has visited that part of the country, or dealing with Asperger Syndrome It will linger in my memory. &READ E-PUB ☛ Conditions are Favorable ↛ Welcome to our worldI know it,
