I really appreciate the time spent developing the characters behind the story. thus was much more interesting than talking about just the ship itself. and oh, what characters!
I would have liked to hear a little more about the fatal flight itself - it seemed to come rather quickly in the book.
The ending explains a few things, and contains one very ironic item I did not know.
My opinion - don't get it audio form.
The book, I felt, was meandering. It jumps from the main story to anecdotes and side stories far to often.
This was compounded by the fact that pacing of the read was way to fast! It felt breathless, just an onslaught of information.
But worst of all was the imperial measurments. I expected more from Bill Hammack. Maybe, if this book was more story/drama oriented book, but this is loaded with technical data. I know this is a general audiance book, and I know it was written in America, and I know 1930s Britain used well... imperial measurments, but it felt wrong and anachronistic to not include metric.
So get this book in hard form, make your self a nice cup of tea, and read it as it should.
Fascinating story, with good narration, even if some pronunciations are weird (American reader). Brings the story to life in a mattrr of fact way thats easy to follow. Will be listening again.
