The Flight Attendant Reviews
There are many things to like about this book, just as there are many things I didn't like. I wouldn't let these things stop me from reading it but I did feel that they took away from my overall enjoyment. (You can tell it's still a good book, otherwise these things wouldn't bother me so much.)
1. The first of these is that WE KNOW she has a drinking problem, you don't have to tell us (via EVERY character) all the time. When you start treating your readers like they're dumb, you lose them.
2. I' ...more
Chris Bohjalian is one of those authors I’ve been meaning to read for the longest time, I’ve heard nothing but great things about his books and was super excited that I would finally be reading one of his books, this one sounded exactly like the kind of book that I would end up loving and I had heard he was an excellent writer. After finishing and really thinking about this one before I wrote my review I can definitely say that yes, he is a fantastic author but this one really didn’t excite me a ...more
I was really digging this, but the ending brought it down a notch.
Slow burn read about a self destructive flight attendant who awakens to discover her one night stand dead beside her.
Cassie became a flight attendant to run away from her past. She exists on alcohol, drunken exploits, and one night stands. After traveling on a flight to Dubai, she sleeps with passenger, Alex Sokolov. Barely remembering what happened between her and Sokolov due to a night of excessive drinking, Cassie aw ...more
Chris Bohjalian has done it again!
Readers of his work, by now, should just come to expect a literary surprise each time they open his newest book! The Flight Attendant is no exception.
What begins as a somewhat slow burning, character driven mystery soon escalates into an international espionage thriller. It happened so quickly I nearly wasn't aware of it.
Granted, Cassie, the flight attendant, is a train wreck waiting to happen. To say she is an alcoholic is like saying the Vatican is a small c ...more
Well, well, well....what an ending!
The Flight Attendant was a great book. It had me from the get-go. It was an unexpected, ruthless ride I was glad to take. For one, I don’t live a life that takes me to all these amazing places, and two, it touches on the darker, dirty side that some of the ladies and gentleman in that profession witness or practice….in my wildest dreams of course!
Cassandra Bowden is the quintessential party girl. City to city, bar to bar, bed to bed. AND, she is a flight attend ...more
This novel starts off starts off at a breathless pace and rarely lets up. It ends with a taut, exciting finale as well.
Cassie Bowden is a flight attendant who doesn’t believe in moderation when it comes to alcohol and sex. When she wakes up in a hotel room in Dubai with a pounding headache and only some memories of the night before, she discovers the man she’d been flirting with on the flight over is dead beside her in bed. Blood is everywhere. She’s pretty sure she didn’t kill him. Why would sh ...more

Regular readers of Chris Bohjalian have learned by now that you never know what you're going to get when you open one of his novels. Every single one is different. Because some of the enjoyment of Bohjalian comes with the surprise factor, I won't go into heavy detail about The Flight Attendant except to say that this book is more about the female lead character: Cassie than it is the overall plot line. Don't get me wrong, there is an intricate storyline to follow - one that is at once full of co ...more
