This is an excellent novel filled with suspense and gritty portrayal of the dark side of life. Callie is an alcoholic, a high functioning alcoholic but one who drinks to the point of blacking out. Her inhibitions and judgement vanish when she drinks and as a flight attendant she can be anonymous on international trips. The plot brings to light Soviet & American relations and how they are perhaps more tense than we would like to believe. The character development is very deep with flashes that help you understand why certain behaviors prevail. A very satisfying read for any fan of intrigue.
Fiction Addiction on The Flight Attendant
Here’s a milestone: Bohjalian is publishing his 20th novel, and as always it combines popular tropes with a serious examination of social issues. Binge-drinking flight attendant Cassandra Bowden wakes up with another bad hangover in a Dubai hotel room and finds the man she spent the night with lying dead beside her. She flees, lying her way from the ride to the airport through the flight to Paris to her encounter with FBI agents at flight’s end. What really happened? And what are the consequences of addiction, deception, and denial? Fans are lining up.
