    I Fell In Love--With This Story

    A friend of mine in Paris recommended this book to me. At first he thought it might be biased against the French, but the more he read of it the more he liked it. It¿s about a former USSR agent who convinced a very evil French politician to participate in a scheme to sabotage Boeing passenger airplanes. This was so that more airlines would buy from Airbus and help the French economy. But nobody ¿ other than the few characters who participate in the evil plot and the Americans who won¿t listen to people who know the answers ¿ is bad at all. In fact, one of the heroes is a French girl and the good Americans all love France and have many good things to say about it. This is the best mystery I¿ve read in a long time in any of the languages I speak. I learned a lot about flying and about the things that have become so important since the book was written. I chewed my fingernails off hoping the evil people would be caught. But most of all, I got lost in the love story, which is really erotic and incredible. Anyone who likes suspense, mystery and romance will adore this book. And if they want to learn something about airplanes, they¿ll like it even more!

    More Books Should Be This Good!

    I¿ve been getting down on reading lately, given the huge amount of trash and repetitive fiction the big publishing houses seem to feel we need. Have we really become that stupid as a nation? I don¿t thing so, and I guess Thomas Kirkwood doesn¿t either. I¿ve been longing for a book like Pilot¿s Dawn for years. As a professional person, I loved the intelligent insight into a field I knew nothing about (the aircraft industry). As someone who travels a great deal, I loved the scope of the novel, moving effortlessly from North America to France to the former East Germany. And as a woman, I found the love story irresistible. I haven¿t ever written a review for an online bookstore, but this title deserves it. Fasten your seat belts!

    There Should Be More Books Like This

    I have a new favorite novel, and I have read a lot of them. This is Pilot's Dawn, written in English by a British or American author. I never thought a story in a language other than my own could keep me up all night, but this one did. I guess it was the suspense and the uncertainty. I couldn't stop turning the pages to find out if the guy and girl got together or if the bad guys got caught. It seemed so many times like the good people were in impossible situations. I also like the descriptions of Europe, where I live, and the United States, which I have now visited twice. If anyone over here wants to practice their English and not get bored, this book is the answer. I wonder why none of the famous authors I've read can put together a story this good. It seems like they keep writing the same story and changing a few names. This book is different and a lot better. My advice to you, whoever you are is: read it.

    I Don't Read Novels, But . . .

    I can¿t believe it. A client called me the other day to tell me one of the protagonists in this new book was from Winnemucca, Nevada. Well, it so happens that I¿m one of the few people I know who actually is from Winnemucca! So I got the novel, although I don¿t usually read fiction, just to see if the author was from my home town and, if so, how he would depict it. The Man from Nevada had actually become head of the NTSB, and the author isn¿t anyone from my town. But the character played by this Frank Warner might as well have grown up around the corner from me. He¿s got all of the traits of a ¿home boy.¿ More interesting, I found myself totally engaged by the story. I had no idea how investigations into air crashes are conducted, and how easy it would be (or would have been before September 11) to smuggle defective components into the parts stream used to keep our passenger planes well-maintained. Besides the ¿Man from Winnemucca,¿ I especially enjoyed the character of Sophie Marx, who is the retired Paris bureau chief of the New York Times. All in all, this was a great read, a book that can be read on many levels, something I would recommend to all types of readers.
