Michael Crichton: Airframe

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.
