The Flight Attendant
The Flight Attendant: A Novel | Chris Bohjalian
From the New York Times bestselling author of The Guest Room, a powerful story about the ways an entire life can change in one night: A flight attendant wakes up in the wrong hotel, in the wrong bed, with a dead man - and no idea what happened. Cassandra Bowden is no stranger to hungover mornings. She's a binge drinker, her job with the airline making it easy to find adventure, and the occasional blackouts seem to be inevitable. She lives with them, and the accompanying self-loathing. When she awakes in a Dubai hotel room, she tries to piece the previous night back together, already counting the minutes until she has to catch her crew shuttle to the airport. She quietly slides out of bed, careful not to aggravate her already pounding head, and looks at the man she spent the night with. She sees his dark hair. His utter stillness. And blood, a slick, still wet pool on the crisp white sheets. Afraid to call the police - she's a single woman alone in a hotel room far from home - Cassie begins to lie. She lies as she joins the other flight attendants and pilots in the van. She lies on the way to Paris as she works the first class cabin. She lies to the FBI agents in New York who meet her at the gate. Soon it's too late to come clean-or face the truth about what really happened back in Dubai. Could she have killed him? If not, who did? Set amid the captivating world of those whose lives unfold at forty thousand feet, The Flight Attendant unveils a spellbinding story of memory, of the giddy pleasures of alcohol and the devastating consequences of addiction, and of murder far from home.

Just finished this. Supposed to be an HBO series staring Kaley Cuoco soon. It was a good read, I think it would make a good movie, not sure about continuing material for a series.

Only a so-so... 1. I didn‘t like how unreliable this unreliable narrator was. So. Many. Bad. Decisions. And 2. This book reminded me more of Dick Wolf‘s books than of a Girl on the Train/Gone Girl thriller, which is a little darker than I prefer.

This isn‘t my most favorite book ever. While the story was interesting and kept me wanting more... there were times it felt like it was dragging on. All that being said. I would recommend this book because it‘s a great story with twits and turns you don‘t see coming.

ImperfectCJ I've not been a big Bohjalian fan, but this one sounds interesting, and I do like twists and turns. I'll keep this title in mind. And...welcome to Litsy! 5mo

I finished this book today. It was an easy-to-follow listen, which isn't always the case. The story was engaging, and I was eager to return to it when I was away. I wouldn't say the protaganist is dimensional or developed; her ill-advised choices were downright frustrating. She's a flight attendant who wakes up next to a corpse and doesn't know who the murderer is. It was an enjoyable ride with a slapdash epilogue.

3 stars for me. This was a mediocre book about an alcoholic flight attendant who thinks she might have killed a man she drunkenly slept with the night before waking up to his dead body next to her. She makes a lot of bad choices that she recognizes as bad choices over and over again even up until the end (which she blames on her father's genes). If you're interested in listening/reading about an alcoholic's psyche, though, this sure is your book.

Cinfhen Good pick!! And she was quite a hot mess 😜 6mo
BarbaraBB I am still doubting if I should read this one. Such mixed reviews! 6mo
Melissa_J @BarbaraBB that‘s why I‘ve left it sit on my TBR pile since I bought it. I think I‘ll read it soonish though. 6mo

Melissa_J @Cinfhen did you like the book? 6mo
Cinfhen I didn‘t!! I thought it was poorly written and full of cliches. Very mediocre @BarbaraBB @Melissa_J 6mo
Cinfhen But you can easily read it in one or two sittings. It‘s good for mindless summer reading 6mo
BarbaraBB @Cinfhen That settles it then 😂. I love a mindless summer read @Melissa_J but I have to make sure I take the right ones with me on vacantion (I‘m still refusing an ereader so I can‘t bring too many ☺️) 6mo
Cinfhen You might want to rethink your aversion to the Kindle @BarbaraBB it‘s a #GameChanger 🥰 6mo
BarbaraBB @Cinfhen But I love my shelves so much. My whole life is in there. Ans the smell of books. And to hold them... 💜 6mo
Cinfhen I get that @BarbaraBB but a Kindle is a traveling bookstore at your disposal!!!!! It‘s sooooooo worth it for traveling purposes ‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️ 6mo
Melissa_J @BarbaraBB I‘m with @cinfhen on the ereader thing. I have shelves full of books all over my house, and just love them, but I also have two ereaders (a Kobo and a Kindle) and love them too 😊 For what it‘s worth, I like my Kobo much better than my Kindle. 6mo
Cinfhen Really??? I don‘t even know what a Kobo is??? 🤪🤨 6mo
Melissa_J @Cinfhen it‘s another ereader brand. I‘ve always had both a Kobo and a Kindle. Right now I have an Oasis for Kindle and a Forma for Kobo. Hands down the Kobo wins for the better ereader. 6mo
BarbaraBB @Melissa_J @Cinfhen My kids have a Kobo too and are loving them but I‘m just not ready for it yet. I always take a picture of the books I read in the place I read them (long before Litsy :) and that is a kind of diary for me. I know, it sounds stupid, I can‘t explain ☺️ 6mo
Cinfhen Stay true to you @BarbaraBB 💕💕💕 6mo
Melissa_J @BarbaraBB I totally understand. If I had to choose one or the other, physical books will always win 😊 6mo

I think I had about 6 3/4 hours of reading for #24b4monday. Was at work both on Saturday and Sunday and at church on Saturday evening and started late on Friday, so I didn‘t get as much reading as I would have liked to.

KellyHunsakerReads What app did you use to create the graph? 7mo
melissajayne @Hunsakermountain I used the Bookly app. It tracks how much I read once I hit the “start reading” button. And once I hit stop, I can put in where I‘m at, depending on the format of the book, either the no of pages or percentage of where I‘m at. 7mo

This was not quite what I expected. The thriller elements were interesting and twisty although I did get most of them. The main character was an extreme example of self distraction to the point that is was hard to empathise. It also finished abruptly and was a little too nicely tied up for me. A quick holiday read

Ok, ok this is not a complex psychological thriller. It‘s a quick and easy murder mystery with a self-destructive protagonist who drinks too much and has too many one night stands. Lol I dream of a day when our heroine isn‘t a drunk ( girl on the train) or on meds ( girl in cabin 10). Who‘s your fav mystery heroine?

I just can‘t. It‘s just too stupid but admittedly, I did finish it. I, then, proceeded to roll my eyes so hard that I‘ve now seen the inside of my own skull which is a shame because I do like the author‘s other works.

Just finished this one up on audible. It wasn‘t really my cup of tea. I struggle with these books I consider broken women thrillers. I can absolutely see why people who enjoy these types of reads would love it though and by the end I had gotten some investment.

Libby1 “Broken Women Thrillers” - that‘s insightful. 10mo
