Description

Two plane crash survivors scramble to salvage truth from the wreckage in this Edgar Award-winning best novel, from the creator of the critically acclaimed show Fargo: "One of The Year's Best Suspense Novels" (New York Times).
On a foggy summer night, eleven people -- ten privileged, one down-on-his-luck painter -- depart Martha's Vineyard on a private jet headed for New York. Sixteen minutes later, the unthinkable happens: the plane plunges into the ocean. The only survivors are the painter Scott Burroughs and a four-year-old boy, who is now the last remaining member of an immensely wealthy and powerful media mogul's family.

Was it by chance that so many influential people perished? Or was something more sinister at work? A storm of media attention brings Scott fame that quickly morphs into notoriety and accusations, and he scrambles to learn truth about the crash. Amid trauma and chaos, the fragile relationship between Scott and the young boy grows and glows at the heart of this stunning novel, raising questions of fate, morality, and the inextricable ties that bind us together.

Kristin Hannah raves, "Noah Hawley really knows how to keep a reader turning the pages... a complex, compulsively readable thrill ride of a novel."

    This was a book in the book club I belong to. I read it for that. I didn’t enjoy it at all! Way too many words and not enough substance. It took forever to find out what was going on.

    Got this recommendation from the ladies of My Favorite Murder podcast. They were right- page turner, phenomenal writing and interesting story line that makes you think about life and the sequence of events. The ending was a twist and I was a little let down, however, I ended satisfied and glad the mystery was solved!
  • Juvenile and anticlimactic

    I have to think that the positive reviews for this book were mostly paid or in exchange for a free product. It really is that bad. The author clearly represents himself through the main character, who has little to no impact on the plot in the end. He just rambles through the story aimlessly, becoming increasingly more unlikable until you really can’t stand to hear what he has to say anymore. After finally deciding to give up and just skim my way through the last 50 pages or so, I have to laugh because the ending has nothing to do with the buildup, but at the same time, it’s also not a twist or a surprise. In that, the book is truly original. I feel like I’ve just read someone’s journal of miscellaneous, unedited ponderings and high school-level “story” ideas. I’m not usually so mean, but I feel insulted that I was lead to believe this would be a good read and wasted my money and time on it, and that apparently ratings can’t be trusted at all anymore.
  • Generally good, but begged for a seasoned copy editor.

    Many annoying and distracting errors that should have been caught in the editing process. i.e. A funeral takes place in a Jewish cemetery (Mount Zion), complete with a rabbi presiding, as the reader is instructed to notice the many statues of the Madonna, as well as a large Friar wielding a cross, all occupying the same space. Just a lot of small errors of characters contradicting themselves or behaving in ways that seemed arbitrary. I found myself paging back too many times to see if I might have misread, only to find otherwise. Other times I felt, as many others have noted, that the author fell in love with the sound of own voice (metaphorically speaking), writing ponderous descriptions of relatively minor subjects or scenes. This is a very good book. It could have easily have been a great one.
  • Loved it, read it

    I recognized the strong writing in this book immediately. From the very first page you're pulled into this cast of characters who just live in your brain until its end. I specifically liked how we were introduced to the catastrophic event before we knew the characters. Most writers would have adopted the opposite flow but because Hawley's choice in my opinion really made the book more interesting. I never guessed "who did it" even though there were a limited amount of characters to choose from. I now want to read all of Noah Hawley's novels. Thank you for the entertainment Mr. Hawley!

    Read all the bad reviews. They describe it quite well. Wordy, superficial, slow and unbelieveable. Unfortunately, I did not read them before I bought it.

    Not what you I've come to expect from an Edgar winner. It lacked originality, suspense, and plot twists. Disappointed.
  • Strong start, then dies a slow boring death...

    Enjoyed the beginning fine, but the middle was absolutely mind numbingly boring... chapter after chapter of irrelevant insight, background and musings with as much appeal as reading the phone book... maybe it finishes with a bang, but I'll never know, because I simply couldn't finish it... and, importantly, I couldnt care less... because the characters were boring.
  • Well written, but...

    The book was well written. The author constructed some great ideas that brought situations to life. However, most of the book was unnecessary and boring. The mystery dragged with very little payoff. Too many characters as well.
