I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.

- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
This was a faintly bizarre book, that wasn’t particularly good, but nor was it particularly bad.
Airframe is advertised as a thriller, but there were only about three short passage that could be classed as even vaguely ‘thrilling’, and they played only the most minor of roles in the plot as a whole. It was really nothing more than a particularly stressful week in the life of a woman who works for an aircraft company, with little bits and bobs about the life of a journalist thrown in here and there.
There really is nothing in particular to recommend about this book, but it’s so bland that there’s nothing particularly in there to criticise either.
Overall, I’d say that this was a relatively enjoyable but ultimately worthless read, which I wouldn’t especially recommend. I wouldn’t say that it was a book to particularly avoid either, though.
Having said all that, if you do decide to buy it, you can get a very competitive price using the link on the right.
