    1 thought on “Kea's Flight”

    1. Now this is another one that is a game changer. i like sci fi but there are so many copycats out there. this is one of the first science fiction books for a real long time I've read which is original. it has an underground following(like most really good quality work) and if you read it you'll get why. I read one reviewer here say it started too slow. if you are like that person and need a lot of people jumping over stuff on horses or whatever in order to keep your interest, then you might now l [...]

    2. I have fallen in love with this book, and already miss its adventure. The writing style flows like water, painting pictures that seem to float off the page. The main characters are interesting and deeply drawn, serious issues are bridged, suspense is held, and the book unravels to a suitably satisfactory and less than expected end.A wide spectrum of readers should be as affected as I am, from Young Adult to “Seen-it-All” Veterans of a thousand books. We see the story through the eyes of a sl [...]

    3. When I read the synopsis for Kea’s Flight it definitely got me interested, but I had no idea what an awesome book it would turn out to be. And by awesome, I definitely mean awesome - this is already one of my favorite books of the year. I’m not usually one for sci-if/futuristic space adventures, but there was just something about this novel that made it incredibly appealing. The characters were probably what did it for me, they were so well-drawn and felt very real. The characters are all te [...]

    4. This is a tricky book to review. There are things about it I really really liked, such as the rather unique premise, and things I honestly felt needed a lot of polishing before the book hit the shelves.Anyway. I've lately tried to read as much diverse literature as possible, and Kea's flight does something very few others do: it gives multiple characters with the same marginalization (in this case neurodivergence, a majority of the characters are autistic). If there was only one autistic charact [...]

    5. If I ever need to point someone toward an example of autistic characters done right, this is the book I’m giving them.This is a science fiction story. It’s a dystopian story (yes, this is a dystopia, although I had no idea going into it). You could make the case that it’s YA, although it’s definitely not limited to YA audiences. And it’s a book about autism – but if that phrase inspires dread in you, making you think of cliched characters and special-episodeness, don’t run off. If [...]

    6. Kea’s Flight is a strange hybrid of science fiction, political dystopia, disability rights advocacy and coming-of-age story. It takes place in the future, on a board a spaceship which moves with near-light-speed from Earth to an unknown planet, which the population on board is meant to colonise after the 21 years it takes to get there. The entire story takes place during the space journey spanning almost 21 years.The Background StoryThe purpose of the mission (along with others like it) is to [...]

    7. I loved this book. Neurodivergent teenagers/young adults are raised aboard a spaceship bound for New Charity III, having been removed from the womb as embryos and frozen as an alternative to abortion. Because the main cast of characters are disabled, they are treated like permanent children and closely monitored by robots and surveillance tech. Kea and her friends secretly rebel against the system. The book explores topics of sexuality and disability rights and is a real page turner. Content not [...]

    8. Kea’s FlightIn recent years, it seems that authors seem to be exploring characters on the autism spectrum, both in print and on television. Analog is currently serializing Triggers, a novel by Robert J. Sawyer that includes at least one character with Asperger’s syndrome. The short-lived TV series Flashforward, based on a novel also by Sawyer, featured at least two autistic characters. Characters with autism have also cropped up as guest stars on TV series such as In Plain Site and Law and O [...]

    9. Also reviewed on the blog:gloriousbooks/201Kea’s Flight is definitely a very different read. I liked the different characters who were, at times, vulnerable, relatable and enjoyable to read about.I really liked the idea behind the story and you can really learn a lot from this book, however, for me it was one of those reads that start of great but then loses it’s steam.I started to feel like there was no basic plot line…not that there wasn’t a plot but that there were so many things happ [...]

    10. Awesome bookWhat if abortion was outlawed, and the embryos who would have been aborted were instead sent out to colonize other planets? Who'd be in charge of those missions? What if things went wrong? This book is a fascinating, intense exploration of that idea.

    11. Science fiction, YA distopia. Main character has Aspberger's, and is growing up on a starship filled with other children that also have various mental disabilities. Interesting reading, with a happy ending that leaves a lot of room for sequels (but I'm not sure any are planned).

    12. Thought provoking book which although technically SF is far more about human growth in a diffiçult environment.

    13. I'm hoping for a book II. Most of the characters, while having different values and traits, have similar communication styles (regardless of their associate mental abnormalities).Still a fun read.
