First of all, let me restate the title of this review: This is by far one of the best books I've ever read. The story is great, the technical aspects of it (flying, gunnery, etc) can be held up next to the many WWI flying memoirs I've read, and I haven't loved a literary character this much since Bernard Cornwell introduced me to Richard Sharpe (there are a lot of similarities between the two).
The writing style is that of a memoir, written in the first person from the point of view of what I imagine is a much older WIll Tucker reflecting back on his days in the RFC. The writing is so well done I could almost picture listening to Tucker telling his old flying stories. The plot and his irreverent commentary are seamlessly entwined together and the result is an absolute joy to read and immensely quotable. As for the plot, I thought it seemed a little far fetched at first (assassinating the Red Baron?) but Shalako made it work and well.
All-in-all, any enthusiast of the Great War and WWI aviation in particular should give this book a read. You won't be disappointed and for the price, what have you got to lose? I'm already reading it a second time and it's just as good.

It's hard to believe this author didn't actually fly missions in World War I! I'm an avid reader of autobiographies and other non-fiction about the flying aces from the First World War and I'm an aviation buff. This novel had incredible detail and the author's technical knowledge was evident in every paragraph. I enjoyed every minute reading Heaven is too Far Away!

The story in this book is very good but, you get so distracted by the monotonous details , it is tough to keep reading. I love detail but .... Wow . At times I felt like I was back in high school, reading a paper someone was trying to meet the minimum word requirements. The story is a solid 4 star though and that's what I give it.
