5.0 out of 5 stars An off-kilter classic, 22 Sep 2005
By 
This review is from: Someplace to Be Flying (Paperback)
For those who are new to this author, starting Someplace to be Flying may be a bit disorienting, especially coming from a pure Fantasy or even Science Fiction background. But even that won't put you off as you almost instantly connect with the main character, and your first glimpse of a world on the edge of sight, namely The Crow Girls, grabs you and gets the brain whirring with the what, who, why and how.
From then on the pace is spot on, introducing more characters, their stories and their connections to the whole story, leading to a build up and ending which leaves you feeling relieved, nauseous, happy, sad and burning with curiosity - but in a good way!

5.0 out of 5 stars be careful this isn't a new book!, 4 July 2014
This review is from: Someplace to Be Flying (Kindle Edition)
Naughty Amazon I'm really annoyed with you, i bought this on kindle as i saw the publication date of 2013, and thought it was a new book, but shortly into reading it it was too familiar, i thought it might have been expanded from one of the short stories, but no i have it in paperback from 1998. it's not like i don't buy enough books on Amazon please be clearer in your descriptions.
still a great book though, Charles de Lint is a master bard of urban fantasy...unmatched and recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars An Exhilirating an uplifting novel, 13 Mar 2001
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Someplace to be Flying (Hardcover)
It is a truly enjoyable story. Once again Charles De Lint approaches his worlds within worlds storyline, but this is his best work to date which leaves you wanting more.
