One of the better remaindered books around, written by a pro in a format easily turned into a screenplay - which is doubtless kicking around out there. Because of this, it plays like movie in your head and even tho in the novel form, it gives one an insight to what goes on in the commercial airline world, and the airplane business. The astute will be able to figure out this "whahappen/whodinit?" long before the end, but as the story unravels even then you kick yourself for missing things. Good characterizations and enough subplots to keep one interested, and of course, well written by Mr Crichton. RAH 6/9/08
I thought the storyline was good. My husband and I listened to the book on tape while on a car trip. Although it held our attention, we both felt it was hard to keep track of the technical aspect. The story goes into detail about the plane's inner workings. If you have a technical background, you'll be able to follow it closer than we could. Over all we enjoyed it. Lots of suspence.
Airframe by Michael Crichton (1996)
Airframe by Michael Crichton (1996) - We only recently discover this great author and have enjoyed reading this and severla other old novels of this creative author - a good read. Recommended
I have to admit that I don't read much. Although Michael Crichton's books are an exception. This book has to be in my top 3 of his works. It provides a very interesting story about an plane incident which many facts don't add up. Almost like a CSI episode the female lead brings you through the clues and solves this mystery!
Gift for the boss
I read this novel when it first came out and enjoyed it. Thought my boss would like it since many of our customers are from the aerospace industry.
