    Airborne is, at its core, a love story, an exploration of the author s love affair with flight and how that shared experience helped him rediscover a love for his father I am not a pilot, nor do I know anything about planes, but I appreciated Jonathan Rotondo s pursuit of his passion Airborne is gorgeously written with, at times, poetic prose, and when it ends, you feel happy you read it.

  3. Kendra Buchanan says:

    Loved the way Jonathan Rotondo wove everything together His use of story building and pictures beautifully completes it I don t have any knowledge about planes but still understood everything, though those with pre existing knowledge would have an even better idea as to what he writes about Honestly recommend to anyone.

  4. Serenity Reads says:

    This is not my usual Genre, even for non fiction I am definitely no aviator, nor am I even interested in planes, but Jonathan Rotondo does a fantastic job of making his passion for aviation compelling and accessible to any lay person His weaving of his father s history, his search for FAM, and his own journey to flight in an organic narrative that is a touching, pleasure to read.
