Recommended for: No one!!!
Read in July, 2008

I have no idea how I ended up owning this book, but I decided it would be a quick read on the plane. It was quick... but every second of the three hours was painful. The book suffered from multiple personalities. The first half was all grieving (fitting for a self help book), the second half attempted to bring in some more mystery and intrigue. Unfortunately the mystery involved was the "pilot" having an affair,,, which comes as no surprise to anyone who has worked in the airline industry. The last couple chapters of the book were the only juicy part, and at that point it was just too little too late. There are five books that I consider the worst books I've ever read, this is now number two.

Danielle What are the other four?

Trish I'm right there with you! This book was awful and made my third worst book ever! I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought the book was not only weak but pointless too.
