Could she have killed him? Cassie, with all her flaws, is a human being as real as any fictional character can possibly become. Why would sh This novel starts off starts off at a breathless pace and rarely lets up. It gave me a bit of an idea of what the police were thinking, without giving anything away. But then again, drunks are known for their bad decisions. City to city, bar to bar, bed to bed. And what do you do with the body of someone who had passed away on a crowded plane? I may have gotten away with murder. Soon it's too late to come clean-or face the truth about what really happened back in Dubai.
Should you really dislike your own creations, and what about the impact that has on the reader? City to city, bar to bar, bed to bed. When she awakes in a Dubai hotel room, she tries to piece the previous night back together, counting the minutes until she has to catch her crew shuttle to the airport. The Flight Attendant is no exception. Also, the fact that she was pregnant with Alex's baby seems completely unnecessary. She lies as she joins the other flight attendants and pilots in the van. As per her usual M.
Did anyone else feel like this, or just me? Her character is not very likable, but this didn't bother me. At first it rivaled The Girl on the Train for most outlandish female alcoholic, only this time it's the girl on the plane. Because she has gaps in her memory, she decides to catch the flight to Paris rather than find out how they deal with drunken women and possible murderers in Dubai. Why did the killer not kill the flight attendant as well? If she didn't kill him. But, no one is going to believe me.
Please please please be true! How did he and Cassie just I agree - the ending was very confusing. She exists on alcohol, drunken exploits, and one night stands. The author did his research on several levels. His Live and Let's Fly blog shares the latest news in the airline industry, commentary on frequent flyer programs and promotions, and detailed reports of his worldwide travel. Elena could have been a very interesting character, but she came across as too cold and distant to allow me to feel like I got to know her.
How long could it be before she talks to the police? There's a great twist at the end that I never saw coming, and then the Epilogue, for me, seemed somewhat far fetched. She is met in New York by who question her about her recent layover in Dubai. It made me wonder if he wrote this book and focused on the countries he did just so he could include those narratives. Donec scelerisque, urna id tincidunt ultrices, nisi nisl lacinia mi, at pellentesque enim mi eu felis. Final Thought: I definitely still want to read other books from Bohjalian. And, when will I ever learn that even three or four drinks and high heels are a poor combination? She's a binge drinker, her job with the airline making it easy to find adventure, and the occasional blackouts seem to be inevitable. To say she is an alcoholic is like saying the Vatican is a small cathedral.
The main character engages in self-destructive behavior and frequent alcohol binges. Filled with alcohol, reduced inhibitions, and even black-outs. She was idiotic, unstable, and usually in a drunken stupor even after she knew she was in trouble. Told in alternating points of view, Cassie, and Elena Miranda both tell their sides after the scene which makes the narrative intriguing. They dreamed of me meeting a rich guy in the sky, like Alex. A hard-partying flight attendant runs afoul of Russian conspirators. Was the murderer the mysterious woman she blurrily remembers visiting the suite? She lies as she joins the other flight attendants and pilots in the van.
I liked Cassie a lot, flaws and all. When she turns to peek at the man she knows is next to her, she's stunned. However, the ending might surprise you. I never like reality or history to barge into my fiction delight. I know how hard they work. Cassie Bowden is a veteran flight attendant, approaching early middle age, who is unhappy with her life and the way she lives it. Every single one is different.
You can tell it's still a good book, otherwise these things wouldn't bother me so much. Her attorney at one point even makes a comment about Cassie not having a rock bottom. Never have I read a book with such an infuriating main character! Published on Edelweiss, Goodreads, Twitter and Amazon on 4. Oddly enough, you sympathize with conflicting characters, which is an engaging twist. She's a binge drinker, her job with the airline making it easy to find adventure, and the occasional blackouts seem to be inevitable. A flight attendant since college, Cassie, now nearing 40, has a penchant for drinking to the blackout point and sleeping with strange men.
The pacing just wasn't there. Here she makes a decision. Smartly written, clever, and gripping. This event triggers an investigation for the killer and what follows raises more questions than answers. Bohjalian did his homework; he could be a job recruiter for an airline if he ever gets sick of writing. When you start treating your readers like they're dumb, you lose them.
And look at where that may have gotten me! When she awakes in a Dubai hotel room, she tries to piece the previous night back together, counting the minutes until she has to catch her crew shuttle to the airport. She lies on the way to Paris as she works the first class cabin. The story unfolds with Russian operatives, double agents, and attempts to exploit Cassie for information she might be able to glean from her brother-in-law who is in the army. I have been a fan of this author for quite a while. You will get to know every single thing about her. I wanted to slap her upside the head more than once.
