Publisher's Summary

Thomas Block has created Captain - his most ambitious, intricate, and action-packed aviation tale yet. It is a chilling and all too real story about a routine Trans-Atlantic airline flight that suddenly turns absolutely insane.
In the doomed airliner's cockpit, inside the passenger cabin, and on the ground, a complex array of characters have been propelled at jet speed into a sudden and frantic race for survival.
Captain is a story that pits man against man and man against machine. It is about the need for human judgments, hard-learned experiences, gut feelings, and unbridled perseverance in an effort to rise up against a world where the strict adherence to written rules, regulations, and procedures have been accepted as the norm.

Great author, horrible narration though

The author narrates this book, it sounds like he did it at home in an echo chamber. It is too painful to listen to the whole book. I want to stop 5 minutes into the book. I love the author's writing and his other book, Mayday, is one of my favorite audiobooks, but it was by a professional narrator and professionally done and produced. I gave the story 5 stars because Audible forces one to rate the story in order to give the audiobook a review.

A Fabulous Experience from Beginning to End!

What made the experience of listening to Captain the most enjoyable?

The storyline was VERY strong, and the author's narration added a really great quality to it - he conveyed the story perfectly.

What did you like best about this story?

The blending of action/adventure with romance, intrigue and personal insights.

Which scene was your favorite?

Almost too many to mention; the action scenes were all riveting, and the other scenes had absolutely no trouble sustaining reader interest.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Action, Adventure, Romance, Intrigue - Captain has it all!

Any additional comments?

I'm looking forward to listening to more of this author's narrations.

Good story, very poor narration!

What would have made Captain better?

Thomas Block is a good author of aviation and airline industry stories. However he does not have the skills or ability to be a good story reader and this spoiled the whole experience with this book. It needs a professional actor/narrator to keep the listener interested and involved.

Would you be willing to try another one of Thomas Block’s performances?

I will continue to read Thomas Block's book with enjoyment. However I will never, ever listen to him narrating again!
