Airframe; 'Riveting' Tale, another hit for Michael Crichton

Michael Crichton has yert produced antoher great book, yet not of his best. The plot is great and okay to follow, but isn't the techno-thriller sci-fi you would expect. FFor someone looking for techincal excitment this is a great buy. For those looking for a page-turner and captavating thriller, not so much.

I was looking for a book to read that held me from start to finish. A book that makes you want to forget about going to bed until you read the last word on the last page. This book didn't hold my interest. I found it dull and hard to continue reading. This story could have been told in less than 150 pages. I'm not sure if I'll buy another Crichton book again.

    give this book a chance

    I know this will never be known as one of Crichton's best books because nothing 'sensational' is happening, but I believe that that is the beauty in it. I found this book to be gripping and I also believe it gave a very accuarate depiction of how the media works in this country.

    It was great!

    I loved this book! Crichton turned a regular accident into a suspensful and fun book to read.

    Great Book -- seen some threads before

    I really liked the book. It was a page turner for me. I learned a great deal about the airplane business... As I read -- it occured to me that Michael C. has used similar threads before. The female alone. Evil forces - against her. Time - against her. Someone up on top of the organization -against her. As I approched the last 50 pages - I began to get a hunch of who but not why. As Larry King would say, 'This is one good read!.' Oh, it would be a good movie with the right cast, director, screenwriter, and camera folks. Enjoy...

    Awesome!

    A totally kick-booty read. I loved it. It pleased even my mind full of aviation information. Very factual as far as I can tell. I wasn't able to put it down, and read most of it in a single Sunday afternoon.

    Airframe

    I loved this book. It was as intense a book as you can read. Always had me thinking and never a dull moment. Unnecesary cussing but helped you to understand the characters.

    Crichton can keep you reading for hours.

    A non stop action packed thriller that will keep your eyes glued to the book. Every chapter is filled with something new.

    Crichton's Best Novel Ever!

    I have read quite a few Crichton's novels, and this was by far the best yet! If you like non-stop action and riviting suspence, this is the book to buy. From the very first page the action was intence and dramatic. I would feel sorry for the production studio that would turn this screenplay down.
