I am back with one of the best reads I have had the pleasure of reading in 2016. Before The Fall by Noah Hawley
“Everyone is from someplace. We all have stories, our lives unfolding along crooked lines, colliding in unexpected ways.”
Do you ever enter a plane or any situation for that matter and think that this could be the day that your life changes? For Scott, that is exactly what happens after he accepts an invitation to fly on a private jet from Martha’s Vineyard.
As all eleven passengers thought, this was just a routine flight back home to New York. What they didn’t know was that there is trouble brewing closer than they could imagine. The plane crashes into the deep blue. Leaving ten passengers including the flight crew dead and only two survivors.
Once you realize that the plane crashes and that there are only two survivors, you are glued to the book craving to know what really happened to the plane. Was this an act of terrorism, did Scott have anything to do with it? Was it mechanical?
As the story unfolds and you start to learn more about the passengers and you finally get the truth you are literally like this:
Sometimes it is not what’s visible to the eye but more so the fact that the truth is sometimes hidden in places we would never expect.
I praise Noah Hawley for this great read.
I give this a solid 4/5. And would definitely recommend you reading it.
Until next time, until the next book.
