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.

An Audible A+ Listening Experience Thrilling!

What did you love best about Captain?

I got so involved in the story, I was startled by the knocking on my passenger side window as I sat in my car, in the garage, the engine off, in the dark, listening to Captain. I was mesmerized by the need to find out what was going to happen in the gripping drama unfolding to the characters I had come to know in the course of the story. The knocking on the window, was my wife. She said I had been in the garage for over 10 minutes and she thought there might be something wrong.


What did you like best about this story?

I think Mr. Block's reading of his own words, significantly enhanced the character development. He has a very pleasing vocal quality and I enjoyed how fluidly he moved from one character to the next.


Which scene was your favorite?

When the words of Lee Frankel (the shrink) were able to calm a passenger uprising, stimulated by Peter Fenton, the 1st Officer.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I was moved by the prologue and the ending.


Any additional comments?

Captain, could only be written by someone with years of experience as an airline Captain. The masterful blending of Mr. Blocks story telling ability and his wealth of flying experience combine to produce and Audible A+ audio book!
