Whenever I want to get back in the swing of reading, I pick an easy read. That’s what this book is – easy. It’s about an airplane crash, the media’s desire to sensationalize instead of report the news, and the politics of the airplane business. It has little character development, and much of the dialogue is driven by explaining how airplanes and the airplane business operate (there is always some dumb character around to ask the obvious question that results in a mini lecture). I suppose if airplanes interest you, you might find some aspects to this book interesting. I still found the book intriguing even though I don’t really know much about airplanes, nor do I especially care to. I wasn’t as glued to the story as I was to some other Crichton novels, but it’s still a decent book if that’s the kind of book you like. I give it three stars out of five.
