Hot Air

Any additional comments?


There is passion, action, terror and others in between. Sean is quite the character being half Navajo and half Irish. He has a career that is thrilling and dangerous. I enjoyed the military romance with the danger that add to the excitement.

We are at the pleasure of the winds

I confess, it was the beauty of the cover and a personal love of watching hot air balloons which led me to request a complimentary copy of Hot Air from the rights holder, via Audiobook Boom. And my thanks for this generous gift. This review is entirely my own.

The story surprised me. I had expected, from the blurb, a fast paced action thriller and, yes, there is that within the book but it is far more. It is the life story of Sean, son of a Navajo father and Irish mother, and of those closest to him. Briefly prefaced by Sean's present feeling of something wrong, it then moves into the past, tracing lives through Sean's growing and adult years before returning, finally, to the beginning.
The writing is simple, almost innocent, and in short chapters, each ended and prefaced by a snippet of music. The author, Denise Kahn, herself reads the book. Her voice is warm and full, slowly and clearly paced to perfectly fit the text, and her interpretation of all of the protagonists' conversations is very well done, both male and female, distinctive and with appropriate accents. The story is enchanting and the whole is beautiful, a pleasure to hear.

I loved this unexpected story with it's tapestry of family, friendship, love, war and vengeance. It is thought provoking and very visual with the gentlest of background hints of there being something more than simple living to life, a soft guiding hand for those who can listen and hopes for peace for all. Thought provoking, It would make a stunning film in the hands of a sympathetic director. A definite recommendation for anyone who likes to get to know the protagonists as well as enjoying realistic action.
