This fictionalized account of the Hindenburg was well done. The author researched the victims and tried to portray their days as they traveled across the ocean on the airship. I am still not convinced about what caused the tragedy, but Lawson did a good job laying out possible causes.
*i could‘ve sworn I already posted this 🤔 I‘m not sure what happened.
This book had been in my TBR list (and shelf) for a couple of years now and finally just decided it was time to read it. I really enjoyed it. I realized I knew next to nothing about The Hindenburg, the passengers or even how it the airship itself worked. I very much enjoyed the writing, the characters and the obvious research that went into telling the story. It's been a little over a week since I read it but the characters are still with me.
I belong to the Merrymakers Book Club, and this was our most recent selection. I really enjoyed this book, and I was surprised that a novel about the Hindenburg could have such character development. It certainly is a fun read, and I found myself reading well into the night, which is my way of saying that I loved this book.
I probably should have read the physical book instead of the audiobook. At times I struggled to stay focused even though it‘s an interesting story and very well written. The ending was heartbreakingly beautiful. 💔#MountTBR
Loved this historical fiction story about the few days before the 1937 Hindenburg Zeppelin explosion. The author selected a handful of characters to focus her story around. See my review at https://youtu.be/e4Pa5v6SQm4

A HARD DAY‘S NIGHT
The Hindenburg definitely made for a “hard day‘s night” and a terrific book.
FLIGHT OF DREAMS tells of the three-day flight of the Hindenburg and its fire on the third day as it neared its landing spot of Lakehurst, New Jersey.
This book is well researched and a wonderful way to learn about this historical event.
I went old school with my #BOTM selection! I miss the early days of #BOTM when the choices were really varied and each book seemed well curated. I was slightly tempted by The Perfect Mother but after so many disappointing thrillers, I decided to skip it! I am curious why the choices are up so early?!?!?!
