"After being rescued as infants from a sinking ocean liner in 1914, Marian and Jamie Graves are raised by their dissolute uncle in Missoula, Montana. There --after encountering a pair of pilots passing through town in a beat up Cessna--Marian commences her lifelong love affair with flight. At fifteen, she drops out of school and finds an unexpected and dangerous patron in a wealthy rancher who provides a plane and subsidizes her lessons, an arrangement that will haunt her for the rest of her life, even as it allows her to fulfill her destiny: circumnavigating the globe and piloting her plane over the Arctic Circle. A century later, Hadley Baxter is cast to play Marian in a film that centers on Marian's disappearance over the South Pacific. Vibrant, canny, disgusted with the claustrophobia of Hollywood, Hadley is eager to re-define herself after a romantic film franchise has imprisoned her in the grip of cult celebrity. Her immersion into the character of Marian unfolds, thrillingly, alongside Marian's own story, as the two womens' fates--and their hunger for self-determination in vastly different geographies and times-- collide. Epic and emotional, meticulously researched and gloriously told, Great Circle is a monumental work of art, and a tremendous leap forward for the prodigiously gifted Maggie Shipstead"--… (mais)

I listened to this on audiobook format.

This Booker Prize Shortlisted novel is a dual-timeline epic about a woman pilot in the 1920s-40s and the woman who will be playing her in a movie in 2014. Both women are essentially orphans, have to grow up fast, and face the challenges of working in fields where men wield power, often in nefarious ways. There's love, sex, self-questioning, facing fear, and dealing with tragedy. The 20th century parts get much more attention and address women's limited options, queer people's limited options, and the shrinking of the globe after WW2. Both portions highlight the limitations of any story to reveal truth or reality. There are a LOT of characters and I did use the wikipedia page to keep them straight. This is a very ambitious novel but I think the author was up for the challenge. It's a long journey but worthwhile. ( )

I wanted to like this fat Booker Longlist nominee better than I did. Well written prose and interesting tale of a lost aviator and her life in male-dominated world of flying, but the tandem story of a Hollywood star chosen to play her in the movie slowed me down. And I resented being slowed down. I am not a fan of historical novels so that explain some of my impatience. It was too big a book not to love spending time with it. ( )

Such a splendid achievement, it boggles the mind to think how it was conceived and executed. Dazzling. ( )

The first quarter of this book was hard to get through since it seemed to rotate through all sorts of horrible abuse. That content let up as the story progressed and overall it was very good. ( )

Shipstead [...] writes with precision on both macro and micro levels, bringing a sure-footed fluency to descriptions of landscape, potted highlights of aviation history and close-up details of people and places [...]

The start of Shipstead’s book — her third, after “Seating Arrangements” in 2012 and “Astonish Me” in 2014 — is thrilling and complicated, with many different threads laid out and back stories carefully and richly wrought; for the next 500-odd pages, I felt the fear I feel when a student’s work starts strong, when other novels open high — knowing that, more often than not, lofty heights can’t be sustained. But “Great Circle” starts high and maintains altitude. One might say it soars.... This is a book explicitly invested in sweep....this far-ranging breadth is as much the project of this novel as any of these individual lives — including all the ways each life exists within the context of so many others, the way the natural world informs and forms us, all the ways we are still only and particularly ourselves.

“Great Circle” is a relentlessly exciting story about a woman maneuvering her way between tradition and prejudice to get what she wants. It’s also a culturally rich story that takes full advantage of its extended length to explore the changing landscape of the 20th century.... Shipstead is particularly interested in the way attitudes about gender shape women’s expectations, desires and careers. Marian utterly rejects the gallant respect for her femininity, which she knows is just a pretty way of keeping her tethered and hooded like a tame falcon.... Shipstead has boldly complicated this gripping historical novel by weaving in a modern-day story set in Hollywood.... The extraordinary realism of Marian’s chapters can make the broad strokes of Hadley’s sections feel light in comparison....Though separated by decades, the aviator and the actress are both powerful women, rising from devastating tragedies to forge their own way.

Though the plotlines come second to the character development, “Great Circle” delves into the gamut of human experience, from romance to war to grief. That being said, there are some parts of this book that drag, and it is a novel that will take time and energy to fully delve into. Especially towards the beginning, where the reader is introduced to so many perspectives, it can be difficult to fully invest in the narrative without a clear understanding as to why each mini-story is important quite yet. Combined with the fact that the novel has a complex non-linear timeline, this story is not instantaneously engrossing, but it builds until it is difficult to put down....“Great Circle” is a novel about lofty ideals of truth, purpose, and connection across time and space, brought down to earth by a dynamic and complex cast of characters. If a reader is willing to give this novel the time it requires, the story’s universal appeal shines through.
 
The intertwined journeys of an aviatrix born in 1914 and an actress cast to play her a century later.... Shipstead reveals breathtaking range and skill, expertly juggling a multigenerational historical epic and a scandal-soaked Hollywood satire, with scenes playing out on land, at sea, and in the air....Ingeniously structured and so damn entertaining; this novel is as ambitious as its heroines—but it never falls from the sky.

I live my life in widening circles / that reach out across the world. / I may not complete this last one / but I give myself to it.
I circle around God, around the primordial tower. / I've been circling for thousands of years / and I still don't know: am I a falcon, a storm, or a great song? -Rainer Maria Rilke, The Book of Hours

If you were to put a blade through any sphere and divide it into two perfect halves, the circumference of the cut side of each half would be a great circle: that is, the largest circle than can be drawn on a sphere.

Closure doesn’t really exist, though. That’s why we’re always looking for it. -Page 13
He could not make peace with the magnitude of suffering in the world. It registered in him as a wave of heat and tingling, an acceleration in his heart and a lightness in his head—a sensation both puny and unbearable. The only way to live was to shut it out, but even when he turned his thoughts away, he was still aware of it, as one who lives alongside a levee is aware of the deluge waiting on the other side. -Page 90
“You wouldn’t think it’d be so hard to stop throwing your money away.” “I think he’s after the thrill.” “What thrill? He never wins.” “And if he quits he never will, either. I think he likes to hope.” “Hope shouldn’t be so expensive.” -Page 134
It’s difficult to believe the gauges, that array of soulless little dashboard windows, over the insistence of the body, which is as sure as you live and breathe that you are funneling down into death. But you’re not. You’re dizzy inside a cloud. That’s all. -Page 174
"People’s wishes for their own lives tend to outweigh others’ ideas about how they should behave.” She paused. “We must bend in the wind sometimes, Jamie. So much is beyond our control.” -Page 241
