For all of its class-bound preoccupations and the cramped horizons of its political vision, Fear of Flying does remain an important document, of both the literature and the emerging gender protest of its age. Its greatest triumph is the depiction of a female psyche battling the forces of loneliness while still yearning for pleasure. It’s a brilliant portrayal of how differently women experience existentialism, romance, and solitude. —Natasha Vargas-Cooper --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
"Extraordinary...at once wildly funny and very wise." - Los Angeles Times
"A picaresque, funny, touching adventure of Isadora Wing...on the run from her psychoanalyst husband, in quest of joy and her own true self." - New York Review of Books--This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

This being said, the book is quite readable and there are some nice anecdotes that I underlined.
But overall I wasn't impressed with neither the characters nor the events nor any psychoanalysis that was seeped in.
Sir Princess Petra (Pen Pieyu Adventures)
What a happy accident!
I would expect this book to generate some polarized reactions. For me, it was certainly a masterpiece.
