    PDF/EPUB Fiona Kidman ↠ The Infinite Air Epub õ The Infinite MOBI :↠ ↠ infinite book, The Infinite download, The Infinite Air PDFThis novel about Jean Batten is an exploration of the pioneering New Zealand aviator and her life Fiona Kidman's writing flows seemingly effortlessly making it easy to read and is a fine example of a skilled writer who uses her craft to best advantage The language is authentic of the period and there is a good balance between dialogue action and description The author portrays Jean Batten sympathetically while remaining true to the attitudes of the time about gender race and class Batten's will to succeed at flying is tremendous; she's a true Kiwi heroine and role model I knew next to nothing about her before reading the book; now I've been enlightened about her life through this engaging story
