5.0 Fear Of Flying
Really Really good, unexpected. It is amazing that this book was written in the early 70s. Now I just wish I knew what happened after the ending!

I read a Danish translation of this book decades ago when I was still studying at the university and I loved it. I just got of of the boook in English, and I'm looking forward to re-read it again soon.

3.0
Strange how one generation's radical feminist novel can appear almost retro sexist to a later generation. Fear has some funny parts and some raunchy parts, but I'm not really the target audience and its not really to my taste.

4.0 Fear of Flying by Erica Jong
Intelligent and well-written. I really felt like I was in the main character's head, though I didn't always agree with her actions.I wish there were more books in this vein and style today, instead of all the fluffy "chick lit" crap out there.
