This is probably one of the best edge of your seat dramatic books I have listened to in a long time! It was a nail biting experience. The description of the whole event gave me the feeling that I was experiencing this drama 1st hand. Excellent audio and the narrator was also perfect. This would make a fantastic movie!

For the last couple of days I have been listening to an audio version of Falling by T. J. Newman. This is an exciting thriller about the high-jacking of a commercial airline by terrorists who start by kidnapping the pilot’s family and threatening to kill them unless the pilot crashes the plane at a designated site.

The author ensures that as the story advances, the reader feels as if they were strapped into a seat on this doomed flight, a prisoner of this terrorist event. As the crew scramble to make the plane as safe as possible, the pilot is able to get a message out which alerts the FBI and they race to rescue the family and stop the plane. Uncertain of their success, the President of America gets ready to have the plane shot down, sacrificing the crew and passengers rather than adding thousands of additional victims if the plane is allowed to crash.

The author is a flight attendant so I was relatively certain that the details regarding aviation and flight rules were accurate. The author’s storytelling was good and her main characters, although perhaps a little too heroic and one-dimensional, were easy to root for. As read by actor Steven Weber, this is an addictive thriller that is guaranteed to give you a late night or two. A fun read but I would warn that probably not the best book to accompany you on a flight.

Page-turner but not good. What a coincidence, the parents both working to save Shannon!
