    I read this book aloud to my husband during the past week or so, and parts of it were very dramatic, but other parts all those charts were a bit dull even though we knew they were important I don t know how a narrator for an audio version would read them, I either handed the book to Marco and let him see for himself, or else I just said lots of numbers that I am not going to read We got the gist of it all anyway.Casey Singleton is in charge of a team trying to figure out what went wrong o I read this book aloud to my husband during the past week or so, and parts of it were very dramatic, but other parts all those charts were a bit dull even though we knew they were important I don t know how a narrator for an audio version would read them, I either handed the book to Marco and let him see for himself, or else I just said lots of num...

    I will be putting up my review of Stoner tomorrow, I promise I need to fine tune it some.Butto the point, Airframe was a book that I enjoyed quite some time back My mother is a huge fan of Crichton, and as a result, we have his whole collection at home I was about 15 when she mother dearest first read Airframe, and I very vividly remember her raving about it Being an engineer herself, it was quite obvious that she would enjoy it And being as far from being an engineer as can be, I w I will be putting up my review of Stoner tomorrow...

    Read this a while ago Back then I probably would have given it four or five stars, but tastes change I remember starting to read this, while sitting in a plane, about to hurl itself down a runway to take off and thinking How stupid can I be If you want so...

    This is my first Crichton since the Andromeda Strain written so many years ago Another reason to ignore the professional critics who have not been terribly kind to Crichton in the past few years I really liked this book It has a marvelous blend of science, information and a good plot that keeps the pages turning.It s interesting that many of the reviews I read focused on the aircraft industry I think the book isabout the media and it s relentless pursuit of the visual and the sound bit This is my first Crichton since the Andromeda Strain written so many years ago A...

    As someone who worked most of my life in Aerospace, on the supersonic B 1 bomber, and then on several Titan missile and launch vehicle programs, I found the book well researched There were a few times when I said to myself, In what manufacturing area would THAT occur But he s right on with the incessant use of acronyms, and the increasing prevalence of cost cutting maneuvers that end up compromising flight safety And I believe he s right on about the maneuvers of the airline companies that As someone who worked most of my life in Aerospace, on the supersonic B 1 bomber, and then on several Titan missile and launch vehicle programs, I found the book well researched There were a few times when I said to myself, In what manufacturing area would THAT occur But he s right on with the incessant use of acronyms, and the increasing prevalence of cost cutting maneuvers that end up compromising flight safety And I believe he s right on about the maneuvers of the airline companies that buy the airframes and follow or don t follow the recommended maintenance procedures However, never having worked for an airline or been familiar with their maintenance programs, I can t say that with certainty.I liked the female aerospace manager, having been one myself, and while others on Goodreads have written here that Crichton tends to populate his books with stereotypical characters, I say hooray for acknowledging that there are now women in aerospace who a have engineering degre...

    When Michael Crichton is good he is very, very good but this effort is just plain horrible The only reason I finished it is due to my obsession about not wanting to miss anything I found myself reading the first sentence of paragraphs and skipping the rest to movequickly to the end I don t think I missed anything doing it that way.The characters are stereotyped beyond belief the hard working but put upon single mother, the brusque and impatient boss, the techy nerds, the debonair test When Michael Crichton is good he is very, very good but this effort is just plain horrible The only reason I finished it is due to my obsession about not wanting to miss anything I found myself reading the first sentence of paragraphs and skipping the rest to movequickly to the end I don t think I missed anything doing it that way.The characters are stereotyped beyond belief the hard working but put upon single mother, the brusque and impatient boss, the techy nerds, the debonair test pilot, the slimy industrial spy, the good hearted mentor, the young, overly ambitious news producer, and on and on.The plot involves an incident on a Norton Aircraft passenger liner that is complicated by a pending ...

    One of those books that I liked but did not like enough Like most of his other books, this one is well researched by Crichton but I guess not enough to hold my full attention The beginning was fun , for a lack of a better word how fun can airplane accidents be and even the whole technology mumbo jumbo was somewhat fun trust me, there is a lot of it but than the political thing came along where contracts were threatened due to safety issues concerns and my brain tried to turn itself off One of those book...

    This was my first Michael Crighton book I know, I know, I m an idiot for never reading him before I really enjoyed Airframe It was a fast paced techno mystery from the first to the last I feel like I learned a lot about the design, manufacturing and flying of commercial aircraft I also learned how lax the quality control is for airlines seriously, I might never fly again Casey is a quality investigator for an airplane manufacturer who is sent to investigate an incident that occurred inv This was my first Michael Crighton book I know, I know, I m an idiot for never reading him before I really enjoyed Airframe It was a fast paced techno mystery from the first to the last I feel like I learned a lot about the design, manufacturing and flying of commercial aircraft I also learned how lax the quality control is for airlines seriously, I might never fly again Casey is a quality investigator for an airplane manufacturer who is sent to investi...
