    Description

    From the New York Times best-selling author of The Guest Room, a powerful story about the ways an entire life can change in one night: A flight attendant wakes up in the wrong hotel, in the wrong bed, with a dead man - and no idea what happened.

    Cassandra Bowden is no stranger to hungover mornings. She's a binge drinker, her job with the airline making it easy to find adventure, and the occasional blackouts seem to be inevitable. She lives with them and the accompanying self-loathing. 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 quietly slides out of bed, careful not to aggravate her already pounding head, and looks at the man she spent the night with. She sees his dark hair. His utter stillness. And blood, a slick, still wet pool on the crisp white sheets.

    Afraid to call the police - she's a single woman alone in a hotel room far from home - Cassie begins to lie. She lies as she joins the other flight attendants and pilots in the van. She lies on the way to Paris as she works the first-class cabin. She lies to the FBI agents in New York who meet her at the gate. Soon it's too late to come clean - or face the truth about what really happened back in Dubai. Could she have killed him? If not, who did?

    Set amid the captivating world of those whose lives unfold at 40,000 feet, The Flight Attendant unveils a spellbinding story of memory, of the giddy pleasures of alcohol and the devastating consequences of addiction, and of murder far from home.

    Commentaires

    "Filled with turbulence and sudden plunges in altitude, The Flight Attendant is a very rare thriller whose penultimate chapter made me think to myself, 'I didn't see that coming.' The novel - Bohjalian's 20th - is also enhanced by his deftness in sketching out vivid characters and locales and by his obvious research into the realities of airline work." (Maureen Corrigan, The Washington Post)

    "An expertly turned thriller... [Bohjalian]'s back-loaded the story with twists, from ones that were hinted at early to left-field surprises. And the brisk and busy ending is a fireworks show of redemption, revelation and old-fashioned gunplay." (Mark Athitakis, USA Today)

    "Readers who enjoyed the imperfect heroine in Paula Hawkins's The Girl on the Train and the anxiety-ridden paranoia of Fyodor Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment will be hooked by this murder mystery." (Library Journal)

    Slow storyline.

    Storyline was a bit slow. Only found interesting because I could relate to line of work. This was my first audio book and I felt the speed was slower than my normal reading pace, but speeding it up felt like it jumbled words.

    AWFUL 2nd female reader!

    The 2nd narrator’s voice was so grating and annoying- I cringed my way thru every passage she read. It totally took away from the story which was unfortunately filled with retelling, repetitive details throughout yet crammed with an unbelievable wrap up of plot elements in the final pages that is not worthy of this author.

    Disappointingly Banal

    Except for the surrealistic twist at the end of the story, I feel that I have experienced this plot and protagonist in a a couple dozen beach reads. Everything about it was sadly unremarkable and I struggled to finish it.

    Not exciting

    I loathed reader #2 that read Elaina's part, terrible voice. The ending felt rushed and the twist wasn't great.

    Good story but 1 reader got on my nerves

    The story was not one of Bohjalian's - it was good, not great. Grace Experience had an annoying, difficult to listen to voice - I dreaded the Elania chapters! I would have given the narration 4 stars if it hadn't been for Experience.

    “Plane” disappointing......

    Chris Bohjalian is a talented author and, therefore, I had great expectations for this book. Unfortunately, my expectations were not met. I had been so excited when I read the synopsis for this book a few months ago because the entire storyline sounded very compelling and intriguing The book faltered in many places —the first half of the book was repetitive and slow-paced, the character development of some of the book’s characters was lacking, and the book’s ending was abrupt and not very well developed. Chris Bohjalin is highly skilled in crafting great plots and character development and I just was not seeing that here.

    Ending a little disappointing

    Good story. it just seemed like the author ended the story quickly. The narration was good except for one character. Overall I did enjoy the story. First time with this author. I will read another.

    Good

    Good but not great. A bit hard to follow. The characters were hard to keep track of.

    Liked the book except.....

    This was a good book, the characters were interesting, lots of plot twists, but the ending was so stupid & improbable that it ruined the overall quality for me. Going into any detail would be a spoiler. I’ve read other books by this author that were great though.

    Narration ruined it.

    A likable enough beachy sort of book. Kept me quite interested for the most part but that all came to a crashing end with the hot mess ending. Abrupt, completely unbelievable and frankly, dumb. It’s almost like the author was late for dinner and just ended the book. Narration was great for the main character, Cassie, but whoa.. the woman who narrated Elena was ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE. Flat, monotone and a LISP. It was so irritating, I had to fast forward through her parts. I feel bad disliking someone’s (possible) speech problem so much, but I’m sorry, a lisp isn’t easy or enjoyable to listen to for 10+ hours. I didn’t hate the book, but can’t say I’d recommend it either.

    Ok

    Just ok, the end had a twist but the story itself wasn’t very engaging, or suspenseful. I felt that the author did sometimes seem to talk about things that weren’t relevant. Overall was disappointed.

    spannend, unterhaltsam, abwechslungsreich.

    Die Sprecherin von Miranda hat mir nicht so gut gefallen. Sollte vielleicht zur Rolle, die sie spielte passen. Story mittendrin etwas verwirrend mit FBI und KGB. Löst sich aber zum Ende weitestgehend auf.

    Loved it

    Crazy twists but I loved it. I don't care for what happens in the epilogue though.
