received a free copy of this book in return for an unbiased reviewDisclaimer I have known this author personally for several years I have seen their work grow and change over this time and enjoyed watching their journey I have not let this affect my review, I have treated this book as if from a stranger to the best of my abilityHenry Donner is a man bogged down by guilt from his past yet trying to pave the way for his future Or is he Is there something deep inside his subconscious drawing him into the darkness Five months before, his partner was killed in a car crash with him at the wheel He has questioned himself every day since, but now he believes he s made a step into the future by booking an interview for a job in New York, well away from his current life and its bindings As he arrives at the airport, however, he notices the departure lounge for the flight is largely empty despite the stewardess s claims they are overbooked Even as he watches he sees other people dash away from the plane for reasons they appear to have suddenly remembered The other passengers appear in a trance, appearing hopeless and not paying attention to anything.Once he s on the plane, telling himself his unease is nothing but nerves about the interview and the uncertainty of moving forward in his life, Henry loses what control he had over his life when it becomes clear that this plane is not a normal plane heading for a normal destination Once he s in the air there s no way to get off There is a distinct, yet undefinable, wrongness to everything around him He seems to be the only one who can see this Can he overcome his own stagnation to protect himself and others Because it really is true, he thought Some people do sense the bad juju of a doomed airplane They sense it and they turn back Like the woman in the white pantsuit Or the mother of the college guy Or like any number of the people missing from all those empty seats on this supposedly overbooked flight.Set during the 80s, in the time of programmers using punch cards to do their work, this had a retro feel to it and works fluidly to draw the plot forward in a way that would be impossible if set in modern times Despite the fact I wasn t born until 91 I never felt at a loss or confused due to the time difference.This book had a good, consistent pace giving the feeling of being drawn ever forwards, ever towards a destination that seems increasingly dark and dangerous, impossible to escape As the story progresses it includes multiple flashbacks of Henry s life, telling the story of what led him to this point Some details of the past are given in extremely inventive methods, leaving both Henry and the reader wondering if he is hallucinating or if he really is hearing his deepest secrets from people who shouldn t even know his name.The writing reminded me of the style of Stephen King in The Green Mile in places It had minor issues, but overall was a real page turner.The book made good use of symbolism and imagery I particularly enjoyed the use of metaphors, showing his distracted mind at some times, and the extreme clarity of the fight or flight instinct at others.Monstrous shapes lumbered like dinosaurs, roaring with the constant drone of idling jet enginesThe books supernatural elements are introduced slowly and subtly At first they appeared to be merely coincidences or a case of being sat awkwardly next to the talkative stranger with shifty eyes Once the plane is in the air though there is no question that he is not imagining this I found the stewardesses to be particularly creepy, the standard plastic, polite smiles found on most people in these professions covered the darkness and danger that lurked in these women.The book was light on dialogue, except for the flashbacks and internal monologue, leaving Henry completely isolated, with only his own will to lead him on the right path This also left the reader with only his perspective to go by.The contrasting themes of guilt and hope, unchangeable destiny and free will spun the tale nicely, always leaving you on your toes as to where the story would go next I liked seeing his internal battle displayed so nakedly before us This kept the story very human even when dealing with less than human element Unlike everyone else on this plane, you persist in looking forward as well as back You continue to believe in something called the future Some place where you can outrun your guilt Where hope isthan a foolish dream Where you might still be able to find peace of mind, and even forgiveness The ending was interesting and drew me in even , always wondering what the truth was and who told it It left a satisfied feeling of completion, yet many questions that were never quite answered Questions that will keep you thinking in the quiet moments of the night I didn t see it coming, making it all theenjoyable.Time is just a carousel that goes round and round It seems like an endless journey to the people on it, but it s really a cycle, spinning and looping back over and over.I thoroughly look forward to readingfrom this author.What would you do if you found yourself on a plane where you were the only one who didn t want to die The 411I loved the feel of this book from the start The twisting themes of inevitability, your will alone being enough to make something happen, and the threads of hope and guilt that were bound so tightly together you could hardly pull them apart.The writing was deep with metaphors yet read smoothly and makes you want to not put it down At times the supernatural elements came in a little bit suddenly without full explanation, but patients and a couplepages rewarded you with the light.I give this book 4.5 stars, adjusted to 5 for reviewing purposes

    There is nothing better than reading a story where your expectations about the plot, characters and anticipating the ending change after each and every chapter I would never have expected the ultimate ending from the initial premise Although there are many authors who can give you a plot with a few exciting points on the way to a great ending, the primary reason I am drawn to G Norman Lippert s stories is that he makes the entire ride from beginning to end the thrill we seek as readers I lov There is nothing better than reading a story where your expectations about the plot, characters and anticipating the ending change after each and every chapter I would never have expected the ultimate ending from the initial premise Although there are many authors who can give you a plot with a few exciting points on the way to a great ending, the primary reason I am drawn to G Norman Lippert s stories is that he makes the entire ride from beginning to end the thrill we seek as readers I loved this book and highly recommend it to anyone seeking an exciting and fresh writing style, great adventure and well developed, passionate characters

    Note In exchange for an unbiased review, the author, publisher, and or narrator were kind enough to provide an audio version of this book at no charge via AudiobookBlast.This was different but in an interesting way It s the first book I ve ever listened to by this author and the narrators They the narrators did a good job of bringing the characters to life The author did a good job of keeping things moving along at the right pace This was a quick listen less than three and a half hours.


  6. April April says:

    This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom This story set in the 70 s, is right out of either Twilight Zone or maybe Alfred Hitchcock Presents The plane is going to the passengers final destination or is it One man must figure it out.Unexpected ending, all I can say is WOW The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed.


  7. Deedra Deedra says:

    This was a short,fun,horror book.Henry was creeped out by the reactions people were having prior to deciding not to board the plane.He had second thoughts himself.Once on the plane he knew it was destined for tragedy Steve White is fine as the main narrator,as is Jeanine Le as sometimes narrator.I was given this book free for an honest review.

    I received a free review copy of this audio book, at my request, and am voluntarily leaving this unbiased review.I m not sure how to classify this book, it s not sci fi, not mystery, not fantasy, not thriller, but some combination of some of those It made for a confusing listen The story follows a man boarding a flight, in 1979, headed across the US The setting is limited to the terminal and the air place for the most part and for a short story it does not feel confined The main character i I received a free review copy of this audio book, at my request, and am voluntarily leaving this unbiased review.I m not sure how to classify this book, it s not sci fi, not mystery, not fantasy, not thriller, but some combination of some of those It made for a confusing listen The story follows a man boarding a flight, in 1979, headed across the US The setting is limited to the terminal and the air place for the most part and for a short story it does not feel confined The main character is really the only character There are 1 dimensional people with whom he has limited interactions with, but really just the main character This is actually a good thing as the story is short enough that if we had to delve into several character arcs, then it would all feel rushed The main character is well developed and has a unique personality which is focused on a single trait, but adjusts and changes over the course of the story.The plot is interesting enough for the format I think it would be difficult to turn it into a full novel, without it being slow or loosing focus.The voice narration by Steve White and Jeannie Lin is good Steve does the bulk of the narration, being the narrator and main character Jeannie does the female voices, which are not often Both are good enough and neither stands out as a great or terrible actor It s an interesting choice though I m used to 1 narrator or a whole team, and have never listened to a book done in this way It was pretty good, but not awesome.I was a little disappointed with how predictable the book was, though Maybe elements of this have just popped up too many times for it to feel fresh It s not completely taken from other sources, and it is put together in a specific way as to be the authors own, but enough of other sources exist in it, for it not to be surprising or new It s what takes this from being a 5 star to a 4 It doesn t ruin it, but it meant I was just listening to find out if I was right.Still, worth a read listen to

    This is a unique and well done story It got increasing strange as the story progressed, to become darkly surreal midway through But I was fascinated with the plot and kept going, hoping for a good payoff And I got it Well worth the read The author has a good grip on language and building scenes Felt like I was on the airplane, bizarre as his flight was Will look forfrom this author.
