Good reading. Well researched.

My favourite Chrichton novel. I must have read it a dozen times. It has all the ingredients of a good thriller - a compelling heroine in more and more danger as she learns more and more about the corruption she's happened across. Even though I now know all the twists and turns, it still has me turning the pages in anticipation every time I read it.

This truly was one of those books I could not put down. Once I started it, I simply had to finish it. Only Crichton has the ability to turn something like the mechanics involved in building a plane into a plot that kept me turning pages. Intense, enjoyable, and fun. I definitely recommend this one!

An interesting view on the Airline industry. Not a whole lot of excitement, but overall a decent read...

Now the television showed a bearded man with a scholarly air, standing near one of the runways at LAX. Aircraft were taxiing in the background. She couldn't hear what the man was saying because the engineers around her were screaming at the image.
"You asshole!"
"Fuckface!"
"Weenyprick!"
"Lying dipshit!"
"Will you guys shut up?" she said. The bearded man on the screen was Frederick Barker, a former FAA official, no longer with the agency. Barker had testified in court against the company several times in recent years. The engineers all hated him.
