    I wasn t sure how I would like a book had us meeting people for only a short time, before sending us off with another person for a short time, over and over again But I really liked this book despite not getting to knowabout each person and what would happen in their life after our brief meeting I became so used to the structure of the book that I didn t want it to be over and wondered how I would feel when we d come to end of our journey The author did a good job of circling us to a co I wasn t sure how I would like a book had us meeting people for only a short time, before sending us off with another person for a short time, over and over again But I really liked this book despite not getting to knowabout each person and what would happen in their life after our brief m...

    A daisy chain of stories that even this non fan of short stories found entirely absorbingThe dozen chapters each introduce a character with a link to the previous and while the stories are minimal, the glimpses into humanity are revealing Starting on a flight from London to Madrid then traveling to numerous cities before coming full circle with the final chapter, Szalay manages to upend your perception of each character as they move from secondary player in ...

    Turbulence has proven to be an interesting concept, well executed While I did not find that every story had identical power, most made me think afterward or caused me to consider something in my own life This collection of linked stories takes an unusual point for connection characters either meet while traveling by plane or meet a character from one story who has traveled to the next destination story.These men and women are linked as parents and children, as lovers or the spurned, as siblin Turbulence has proven to be an interesting concept, well executed While I did not find that...
