"The Last of the Bush Pilots" by Eric Auxier

With loads of cursing and swearing and dirty scenes, this book was definitely too R-rated for my liking.  And that’s a shame since I really enjoyed the author’s other book “Code Name: Dodger.”  As a new tour-guide pilot dreaming of flying commercial jets, DC finds himself stuck.  One day he finally caves into his friend’s suggestion that he log hours in Alaska, where he can get a good pilot job.  When DC comes to Alaska, we see the beauty and devastation of nature.  There are even some interesting scenes that involve eagles, salmon, and baby bears.  However, DC also has a girl that he lives with intimately.  After he goes to Alaska, he forgets about his girlfriend and starts seeing an exotic Alaskan native, who is too awfully perverted for me to even describe.  Eventually he realizes that he should not have let go of his girlfriend, but he finds this realization too late.  Not once did I see any positive, strong female in the book.  The check-rider Holly was as close as it came to a strong woman, but even she got inebriated and perverse at one point in the book.  Overall, this book was not my cup of tea.  I found it incredibly sexist, where women were just seen as sex objects throughout the entire book.  This review may not be promoting the book, but all my reviews are free.  I am under no obligation to give people good reviews.
