Roger Sarao, May 23, 2009 (view all comments by Roger Sarao)
One of the finest books that employs the Kennedy mystique as focal point. Weaves fact and fiction, yet is not one of those "historical fiction" books that treat the same subject such as Ellroy's American Tabloid and DeLillo's Libra (both of which I prefer to Flying In To Love, but the comparison is really not fair). Thomas is a master at getting inside the heads of his characters and making the reader think and feel what they do -- perhaps a definition of a great novelist? Regardless of whether you know or care much about the myth of Camelot or one of the most recent and perplexing murders of a world leader, this book is flat-out well written and well crafted, and would appeal to anyone who loves literature. R.I.P. D.M.T.
