Shiny Broken Pieces: And even though her own best friends are closeted queers, she feels she is not ready to share her secret with anyone she knows.

Instead, she sends her love and her questions to the passengers inside the planes that fly overhead. Right off the bat, I think I need to say that the strength of Ask the Passengers does not come from it being a ground-breaking, all-out original coming-out story because it is not.

After all, more often than not, coming-out stories are set in small towns and do deal with the themes of acceptance internal and external. In that sense, there is nothing really new here despite what the blurb says.

The Passengers

That said, Ask the Passengers is still a resonant, beautifully written story. Astrid questions basically everything. One of the coolest aspects of the novel is how it incorporates classic philosophy as Astrid is really into her philosophy classes. She absorbs or rejects ideas in a very thoughtful way. Above all though she is really into the Socratic method of questioning and often has imaginary conversations with him after nicknaming him Frank, for better accessibility.

I get that and I love that she just wants things to come in her own terms. At the same time, she realises that those around her need those definitions and the novel follows her attempt to find the balance between her needs and the needs of those around her. Another positive aspect is how there are several queer characters in the novel and all of them have different coming-out stories reinforcing the idea that there is no such thing as the right way of coming-out.

That said, I found it very strange that in the midst of all this questioning, not a single character brought up the idea that perhaps Astrid was bi. Finally, I have found that A. I am not usually a fan of magical realism and found it hard to connect to those aspects in this particular book.

Your mileage ha, no pun intended may vary.Thank you.
