Review – Airframe by Michael Crichton ePub

For me this book is why I fell in love with Crichton’s writing, as I started with Andromeda Strain and this book follows the same motif. For those of you who don’t like jargon, don’t like what we in the writing business call “data dumps” and don’t like looking at “print outs” in different, lighter fonts, this book is not for you. If you enjoyed Andromeda Strain you’ll find this book much like that one.
This is all about the investigation of mythical plane disaster from a mythical airline, in a plane made by a mythical company based at the Burbank Airport. Casey Singleton, a woman pushing forty who is a company VP, was put in charge of media and investigations on this air disaster that killed four and injured over fifty people. The factor everyone blames are the slates, that aren’t supposed to come out during cruising flight, but may have or did they? That is the question.
Complicating this is her boss, the local unions who fear job losses and are taking action against the company, plus a twenty-eight year old woman news producer from a network show called Newsline.
The story is told in short vignettes that move from building to building, from Glendale to LAX to New York. Crichton obviously researched the whole investigation process and from that comes our charts, print-outs and data dump. (Free ePub Books)
BUT, this book is not much different in content than the popular movie Sully starring Tom Hanks. That, too, is about an investigation into what happened and people got into it. The movie Miracle Landing about the Hawaiian flight whose cabin top sheered off was also popular with TV goers (I knew some of the Ultrasonic testers who went to Hawaii to check the rest of the fleet out). This book is along those lines. I read it in four days. Crichton’s writing style is great, he keeps tension with the guys from the union that you’re not supposed to screw with, with her new intern, and with all the other people looking into the incident.
For me (and not for everyone) it’s best book I’ve read in years!
