What I enjoyed
- The ending was incredible. My favourite part of the book was actually the last few chapters. The genre changed into a psychological thriller and I loved it! I just wish there was more of it.
- The development and relationship between Adam, Mina and Sophia. At the start Adam and Mina were broken individually and as a family. But I enjoyed how they addressed their issues, moved on and grew closer together, especially Adam and Sophia who had some sweet moments.
- I like the use of different perspectives. At first I didn’t care about the passenger’s stories but it made sense later on which I thought was clever!
What I didn’t enjoy
- While I was curious, I wasn’t at the edge of my seat like I had hoped. The book felt too long and drawn out. I found myself skimming the whole way.
- I am conflicted about the reason for the hijacking. While it was unexpected I did raise an eyebrow.
Things to know if you are still deciding whether to read this
- This is both plot and character driven.
- The first part of the book strongly focuses on the characters, it takes a long time for the hijacking to actually happen.
- It was definitely turtle pace at the start and slowly built up to medium pace.
