Serenity: Float OutSerenity: Float Out by Patton Oswalt
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I wasn't alone in the movie theatre when I cried out during Serenity. Earlier, we were shocked with Book, and then Wash. So suddenly.

When I saw The Shepard's Tale on the shelf, I expected closure and a tribute to an incredible character. I was thoroughly disappointed and sadly, it made me hesitant to read this...

I love this book. It is the honourable tribute that I had expected for Book. I loved that this didn't involve the Serenity crew at all and instead gave us tales of Wash from old friends and pilots. We've always known that Wash could fly, but these insights showed just how much Wash not just knew about flying, but how much he felt and lived it. It made his last line that much more poignant.

The cameo at the end was an added bonus, and it wasn't good simply because of the shocking splash. It was good because of everything else the person did and said, adding even more depth to Wash, while bringing him back down to earth.

This is my mindspill. Mostly about comics, books, video games, movies of the science fiction and fantasy leanings. Sometimes recipes and parenting stuff will sneak in, along with a real world rant or two.

I also write about geek culture at Women Write About Comics, and I review genre fiction at The BiblioSanctum.
