download Ù eBook or Kindle ePUB  Erica Jong Erica Jong  3 read & download Fear of Flying review ☆ 103 Angst vorm FliegenIsadora Wing die selbstkritische junge Amerikanerin ist eine der vergnügtesten und rührendsten Heldinnen der Gegenwartsliteratur eine entwaffnende und hinreißende Anti Heldin Immer auf der Suche nach Erlösern Sinneslust und Sicherheit ständig auf Trab und von einer Angst in die andere fallend versucht sie sich Klarheit zu verschaffen wer sie ist was sie will was sie noch lieber will und woran es liegt daß selten geht was sie am liebsten will Die Geschichte beginnt mit Isadoras Angst im Flugzeug auf dem. For whatever reason possibly because someone I recommended it to wasn t that thrilled by it I feel a bit like I need to defend this book lately and since I reviewed it when I first joined this site and most people were writing shorter reviews I d like to give it a better write upThe premise of Fear of Flying is fairly simple Isadora White Wing is in a marriage she isn t exactly happy with Her husband isn t especially warm to her nor is he incredibly supportive of her career like Jong of course she s a writerWhile on a trip in Vienna Isadora fantasizes about being with another man and this book is or less about those fantasies what they mean in the context of her marriage her entire love life what they mean for women in generalIt s true the writing isn t exactly high brow It s incredibly self indulgent and narcissistic and you will from time to time feel like you could have written it and maybe even done a better jobThat however is not the point of this book It s not about the way she writes but the fact that she wrote it in the first placeYou d think after books like The Awakening which was written in motherfucking 1899 by the by that society would ve gradually accepted that women have sex drives Sexuality is important to women women want pleasure women have fantasies sometimes women too just want to get down and dirty and out the doorBut no Even today 109 years after Kate Chopin wrote The Awakening people are still coping with feminine sexualityThe importance of Fear of Flying is Jong opening up the female mind showing people this is what we think about worry about these are the problems we have these are things on our minds where men careers and lives are concerned You may not always agree with her or have the exact same problems but I would be astounded if any woman gets through this book without finding anything she can relate toAs I see it there are two major dilemmas going on here which are both issues that many women I know myself included have facedThe first is sort of what the two men she debates between represent to her and her life There s comfort and stability represented by Bennett her second husband Then there s passion and intensity represented by Adrian Goodlove yeah a real dumbdumb name but I kind of love it because of that A LOT of women often feel like they re forced to choose between these two extremes at one point or another I definitely have and most women I know have too I know someone sorting through a similar pair of men at this very moment in timeThe second is a dilemma that s just as applicable to men as it is to women and that s the idea of freedom and independence and struggling to maintain that within the framework of a relationship She wants to be strong and able to do whatever she wants whenever she wants both in terms of love and her career but at the same time she wants support companionship Is there anyone who hasn t struggled with this even if only on a small scale at some point or anotherThere are also other issues within the context of those issues Do women have to get married Why do we feel we have to EtcAgain I have to stress that this book is about what she says as opposed to how she says it I imagine she had a hunch that this book would elicit a controversial response and was probably concerned a lot with content than she was style Honestly I think that s allowable in these circumstances She wanted to encourage women to go out and explore their sexuality and what it meant to them and with such a noble cause I can forgive her the rudimentary approach She s not perfect and I don t see why she has to be I think that s also part of this book s charm She isn t perfect she knows it and she learns to accept it another conundrum plenty of people face in one way or another and I d say that s true of both the character and the authorAs for how it fits in modern times I do think it s still applicable It might seem a bit closeted to women who feel they ve fully embraced their sexuality or have read of the modern musings on female pleasure first None the less the issues I mention above that Isadora struggles with are still very much currentAre there books that approach these issues that might be modern Sure But I also think there s importance in knowing the kind of novel that shocked America in the 70s a time when most of us from a younger generation think of free love and hippies and feminism and what not For a modern woman there isn t anything shocking about this The fact that it was shocking is what s so damn upsetting The 70s were not that long ago And people were thrown back by the fact that women had dreams of random sexual encounters It s appalling Of course at the same time despite the fact that if this book was released today it probably wouldn t be considered a revelation I m sure Isadora would still get labeled cruelly Which is also kind of upsettingNone the less if you like the topic but not the writing style of Fear of Flying I definitely suggest The Awakening which is a little high browOriginal reviewI kindofsortof hate it when people say things like this book changed my life but if I was going to say that about just one book I would say it about this oneYes it s neurotic yes it s self obsessed But I like it that way and there s still plenty to take from this book even for those who don t especially enjoy writing like that There are also plenty of modern writers who do the same thing and are praised for it cough Dave Eggers coughIn the simplest overview there s nothing particularly revelatory about her observations and conclusions everyone goes through the struggle of wanting to be independent and wanting to be loved and most of us learn this rather early on But there s something about the way that she approaches this the way that she handles it that makes it hit you like a truck I dare you to come away from reading this book without thinking about it for at least the next weekThough this book is obviously marketed towards women I think it s just as important reading for men
