Bryan Young ì 1 REVIEW

Their homeland or to prove something to themselves but Robert Preston has fled America and joined the French Army to escape heartbreak He's placed in the 5th Aeronautic Corps an elite unit of the French Army that specializes in jumping over trenches by means of jet packs It's a dangerous job. The Aeronaut is a novel with many layersthere is the beauty of the surface story of love and friendship action and war Young does a great job in crafting a time and place that easily brings the reader to understand the situation the protagonist is experiencing In many ways it starts off like many others boy is heartbroken and runs off to join the army As I said the writing here is solid and characterization so well done it only takes a few pages to make a lasting impression What you really need to appreciate is the story Young is not telling while he is telling the story of Robert It is my theory the the tragedy of the book reaches deeper than it does at face value At the end of my first reading it all came together for me Yes it is sad but there s an extra layer to it I did not pick up on while reading LeBeau is in love with Robert in the middle of a war and a time where such was forbidden Robert never realizes this and let s his jealousy and fear drive him crazy Sara who s compassionate and empathetic knows and tries to tell Robert but he never hears what she s telling him The ending is sad but the realization of this unreuited love with someone Robert may love too if he was open to the idea rips out whatever heart you have left Young may not have realized it or intended it but his is easily the saddest novel I ve ever read Brilliant job brilliant job

CHARACTERS The Aeronaut

The Aeronaut

The Aeronaut is a tense story full of action espionage and romance set in an alternate version of World War I Computational machinery has allowed both sides to make great technological leaps that have made trench warfare even deadlier for the soldiers at the front Some men go to war to defend. From the death and destruction that life and war bring to the healing process and the parts that never uite heal The Aeronaut is an astounding piece of literature I cannot recommend enough It reads as the protagonist s final apology for a condition he could do little to control and the lives it destroyed Young carefully interlaces what is to come through out the text so subtly it demands multiple readings Every character from Preston and his central circle to his brief chance meetings are full and wondrous Sara the love of his lifetime inspires as much curiosity as the pair of intelligence men he spends a fraction of the time with and I am just as charmed by Jacue a pilot who appears for only a dozen pages as I am by his dearest friend LeBeau a character who comes second to only our protagonist The prose is steadfast unerring charged and at times simply endearing in short beautifully memorable Young does not flinch from the unsavory and terrifying details of war or love for that matter You can read Hemingway s influence clearly not merely in the adaptation of tone and plot but also in that you will assume Young lived this himself A stunning work of art

    I've read a lot of books this year just shy of fifty so far Some of them blend into the background forgotten in the haze of so many characters and plots This isn't one of those books I generally avoid war books but the steam punk elements jet packs and dirigibles got me in the door The characters and tense exciting situations kept me there The world is clear and feels real you feel for Preston as he navigates through vi
