If you're an aviation buff expecting a detailed breakdown of the crash and why it happened, you'll likely be disappointed. If you're expecting a true story about a plane crash and the often overlooked human drama that comes with a tragedy like that, then this book is for you.
You have to take the good with the bad. The author was uniquely involved in the recovery efforts of a plane crash. His story is remarkable. But at times, his story telling method can frustrate. For example, he reads email exchanges, sometimes verbatim, to discuss how the crash came back into his life 50 years later.
Overall, I enjoyed the book. It wasnt what I was expecting based on the title, but it was also unlike anything else I've ever seen or read.
Well written with excellent detail and a style that held my interest. Will likely purchase the paperback as well. The chapters toward the end became a bit tedious and repetitive, so it could have been condensed a bit. The narration was excellent: clear, pleasant and performed with precise, empathetic inflection. Well done.
