"Fans of Lisa Jewell and Liv Constantine will love The Last Flight, a novel focusing on two women who meet in an airport, both alone, both scared, and both urgently needing an escape from their lives. Claire Cook has a husband whose temper burns as bright as his promising political career, and she has worked for months on a plan to get out. A chance meeting in an airport bar brings her together with a stranger equally as desperate. Together they hatch a plan to switch tickets - Claire taking Eva's flight to Oakland, and Eva traveling to Puerto Rico as Claire. But then one plane crashes, and it's clear that one of them wasn't telling the truth"--… (mer)

The initial hook seemed farfetched, but I went along with it, putting my faith in the author that she had a plan to resolve it. I let myself get caught up in the story as it appeared, piece by piece, and especially by the characters (although the husband, Rory, is a mere caricature). As the remaining pages dwindled, I grew concerned, but kept my faith. Then the book ended. It turns out that there was no plan to tie things together. The whole plot is just a freak coincidence between the two main characters, and a freak plane crash. What a disappointment. By adopting this thriller writing style, I feel that there is an implicit promise that there will be a thriller-like conclusion—a twist ending, perhaps—to wrap things up. There has to be some deeper story, or perhaps a conspiracy, involving the husband. But no. Aside from this, I enjoyed the novel. ( )

I ate this up in one day a mystery thriller about two strong women whose lives intersect, each running from dangerous men. Exciting! ( )

What a page turner this was! This could be read in one sitting if possible without interruptions.

I much preferred reading about Claire for obvious reasons. She has the most exciting part of the story and the one you're on edge about. There are some face palm moments for her as she has moments of absolute stupidity but to be fair she's always walking on egg shells and on high alert and you can't blame her.

I wish there a bit more to Eva's story. It started off really good but it falls pretty flat half way through. Nothing much else happens when there was a lot of potential to add more to it.

I did like how everything came together. It was seamless, smooth, maybe a little too coincidental but it worked well.

Highly recommend this quick read. ( )

Such a good fast paced story! I loved following the characters through their dark moments and fears, wondering how they will come through on the other end. Beautifully written characters. ( )

This was a well-written story with interesting characters and a terrific twist at the end. Even though I couldn't relate to the lives of the characters, I wanted to know what happened to them. ( )

Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.

Dedicated to all the women who have come forward with their stories. Whether it be in front of a congressional panel on live television or alone in a windowless human resources office--- we hear you. We believe you.

Terminal 4 swarms with people, the smell of wet wool and jet fuel thick around me.
Citat
Information från den engelska sidan med allmänna fakta. Redigera om du vill anpassa till ditt språk.
The loss had faded, as all losses did, replaced by something harder. Stronger. She could see now what she couldn't see then. All choices had consequences. It was what you did with those consequences that mattered.
Everything you ever wanted is on the other side of fear.
This is what it's like to die, having left so much unfinished. It still tethers you---like an in breakable thread, always leading your thoughts back to if only. But if only is a useless question, a spotlight shining on an empty stage, illuminating what never was, and never will be.
"You know, life is long. Lots of things can go wrong and still end up all right."
This was the funny thing about regret. It lived inside of you, shrinking down until you could almost believe it had vanished, only to have it spring up, fully formed, call forwarded by people who meant you no harm.
