The novel was integrating but at the same time boring, I love this topic aviation/mystery but I had to keep myself reading there was little flow. The information was great, Fred Goerner's trials to get what little facts he could out of the government and the locals was groundbreaking. I could be that I'm reading this book 40 years after it was written, but I couldn't get in the grove of the story line and I feel like I could have just read the last chapter and been satisfied.
Fred Goerner dedicated years of his life researching the mystery of Amelia Earhart's disappearance on July 2, 1937. He uncovers so many unbelievable facts, but it's very disturbing to realize that Japan and our government have chosen to leave the truth buried in classified files. Her last days must have been terrible and I feel so sad because she was an incredible person!
Great, informative read on the disappearance of Amelia Earhart. After reading Georner's evidence and conclusions it's hard to fathom an ending to Amelia Earthart other than her going down in the Marshall Islands after being sent to spy on the Japanese, being held captive in Saipain and dying there. And it's even harder to believe that the government didn't know about it.
An excellent account of the search! A clear, interesting, active book describing Fred Goerner's hunt for evidence about the disappearance of Amelia Earhart. But for the occasional bad word I would give this book five stars. A must read for anyone interested in the Earhart mystery or historical/archaeological mysteries in general!
