Book Review: The Sound of Wings

The Sound of Wings: The Life of Amelia Earhart The Sound of Wings: The Life of Amelia Earhart by Mary S. Lovell


My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I wanted to read this biography of Amelia Earhart before I saw the movie about her that was released this fall. She lead a very interesting life, always advocating for equality for women. She was about my age when she disappeared. Much of the book centers on her relationship with her publicist husband who the author credits with keeping Amelia in the public eye during her life and after her disappearance. Reading about the early days of aviation was enjoyable too. We take very much for granted the safety and reliability of air travel.

I love looking at early (especially failed) airplanes. These crack me up: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iMhdksPFhCM
