When the passengers of Flight 2222 board the plane, little do they know what they’re in for. Trying to make a woman feel more at ease, Frank reveals a sort of game he likes to play. At random, they choose seven people and try to guess their names, age, occupation, marital status and quirks. While it seems harmless enough, it’s a weird premonition for what’s to come. The plane goes down and crashes in the water. The only survivors are Frank, Maxine and the seven passengers they picked out. Eerie. ...more

I saw that cover and there was no doubt in my mind that I had to read this one.

Leaving his pregnant wife for a business trip, he boards Flight 2222. Like him, I am not a fan of flying, going through the hassle of undressing/dressing, getting xrayed and frisked, plus the flight itself..

Maria had ruined her life and she is taking the trip to Argentina to atone for it. She boards Flight 2222, not knowing whether it will help it was too late to make amends.

A man and a woman play a silly guess the name game to pass the time while their plane speeds across the ocean. Is it coincidence or fate that the two strangers wind up sharing a life raft with the seven people they chose for their game when the plane nose dives into the ocean? One by one they start to succumb to the physical and psychological terrors they are faced with. They’re playing a new game now. One where some or none may survive the outcome.

I had a good vibe about this book. First, that

This Book Is A Disaster...And I'm Not Referring To The Plot Involving A Plane Crash!

I decided to read The Mystery of Flight 2222 ahead of all of the many books in my library because I generally enjoy books with this type of plot (which can be read about in the Amazon or Goodreads Book Descriptions); and its plot concept reminded me of a book I read about eight years ago called The Evangeline by D.W. Buffa, which involved a disaster at sea and the rescue of its surviving passengers. I considered

When the flight 2222 to Argentina crash-lands nine strangers end up on a life-raft drifting in the vast ocean. With a limited food, water, and a confined space remaining alive and sane until the time when or if the rescue arrives becomes to the only aim. 
The survivors are liberally bestowed with hardships and challenges. The way the author is including the mystery part could be done better but this story may appeal to readers who like thrillers with an element of horror. See my full review in ht

There was a lot wrong with this novel, it needed a lot more editing. The plot felt rushed and I didn’t get to know the characters very well.

The Mystery of Flight 2222 by Thomas Neviaser is an intriguing Mystery/Thriller that keeps the reader engaged from start to finish. Perhaps by fate a man and a woman are seated next to each other on Flight 2222. During the long flight they play a guessing game of naming the other passengers and guessing their personal history. With the woman’s fear of flying alleviated the two seatmates stop playing the game after choosing seven passengers then doze off.

What would you do to survive getting lost at sea?

I am pretty okay with flying, though this was not always so. I have never been on a flight like 2222 though. If that had been the case, I would most likely rather take a submarine instead.

For a disaster and survival story, it was pretty interesting and I was surprised by a few things. I was a little unnerved by some of the more gruesome moments, though due to their nature, it only seems right to be so. 

For everyone inconvenienced in the story, it

** I was given this book for free in return for an honest review **

Rating: 3.75 (rounded up to 4)

This was a lot more gruesome that I expected - although I think that might just be my naivete as the subject matter is pretty gruesome itself. I fly a lot and have never been afraid to, but goodness knows how I would handle it if I had to experience what the poor characters in this book do!

An innocent game between seat partners on a long haul flight sees a man and a woman making up stories about thei

“ You see their dastardly behaviors of the past are the key to their miserable dilemma.”

Thomas Neviaser takes you on a ride of mystery and suspense. When Frank and Helen meet on a plane that leads to friendship and a simple guessing game of who, what and where of seven other random fellow passengers. When the plane goes down on its way to Argentina and the only survivors are Frank Helen and the seven passengers from the game are left. There are no questions far more than the meets the eye with

I liked the beginning. I was a little unsure of the book, since it was not my usual type that I read, but then read the summary and thought that it sounded good. I had a couple of other reviews that gave the book a big thumbs up so I thought why not. I was not disappointed in any way. The quick backstories of the passengers and the pilots, and the Flight Attendants, of all variety of backgrounds and walks of life prove that just because you are successful or rich or just an every day person that ...more

Mystery of Flight 2222 is an fascinating story about a group that miraculously survives a plane crash into the sea. They began developing an interesting group dynamic while playing a game together before the flight went down. From there they are sent on a journey that is thrilling, suspenseful, intriguing, and extraordinary.

They face obstacle after obstacle and, just when they think things are looking up, things begin to shift again. There are fun group dynamics at play and the characters are in

When I started reading this I was expecting I would be able to figure our where the story was going and what would happen to get there. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised to be continuously thrown for a loop throughout the entire book! I came to like the main character, Frank, and had a love-hate relationship with quite a few of the other characters. It’s such a fast-paced book that deaths in the book startled me often. The characters were well thought out and so engaging that you really w ...more

*Copy provided to Bayou Book Junkie for my reading pleasure in hopes of an unbiased opinion, a review was not a requirement.**

The Mystery of Flight 2222 is NOTHING that I expected, at all! I have never flown on a plane, and I don’t foresee that to change after reading this book. This story starts out all soft introducing one of the main characters, Frank, and since I read the synopsis, I knew he was going to be in a plane crash. He seemed like a nice guy with a nice family. I was worried that I

This was an intense novel. And everything I fear when I fly in a plane, so this one actually had me on the edge of my seat. The thought of the plane crashing is one thing, but the subsequent horrors that await the surviving passengers were chilling. I could really see this being a movie.

I love the characters. The paranoia and mental break downs are so realistic. Exactly what you’d expect in this situation. I love how, even though it seems far fetched, you are so drawn in that it feel a like a tr

It has an interesting premise, and believable plot, but also some pacing problems. A good book with a surprising ending, which could probably be improved upon with a better editor.

Thomas Neviaser takes readers on a whirlwind read with an action packed story. His premise is not original—merging a plane crash with cannibalism and pirates with human trafficking. But the combination makes for an interesting story. And you won’t see the end coming.
