This was a super easy and quick read but it ultimately it fell a bit flat for me.

I always feel a bit weird about rating books low when it's partly because the book wasn't what I expected. This book is described as a mystery but there just isn't that much mystery. This book is duel perspective so we find out basically right away what is happening with the falling woman. The only other mystery would be why the plane crashed but that is clearly not the focus of the book. I don't think I would have enjoyed this more if I knew there wasn't much mystery going in but it was a bit disappointing because the set up for this was so original and I wanted to see how it played out.

I also didn't love the characters. Charlie was fine but I still feel like I didn't understand him as much as I wanted to by the end of this book. My real problem was with Erin. I like reading about characters that make decisions I would never make because then I can think through those decisions so I'm not upset that I didn't find her likeable. My problem was that I wasn't satisfied with the way her choices were explored. The book summary on my copy said this was about peoples right to privacy and making their own choices but I just didn't feel like that was fleshed out well at all. It seemed like there was conflicting reasons for her wanting to disappear and I wanted to dig into that a bit more. The marriage parts of this book I really couldn't care less about. I really hated the conclusion of Charlie's marriage plot I really didn't like that he ended up having a kid on the way because some people just don't want kids! And they don't need to be pushed into having one. You should also talk about those sorts of decisions before you marry someone. and I just kept wanting this to be more of a mystery than it was.

Even this didn't end up really working for me, I would consider reading more by this author. This was an easy book to get through and the writing was pretty good. It was a little too flowery in parts but I think if I went into a different book by this author I would enjoy it at least as much as this one. ( )

Tough Choices. Great Debut. This is a solidly written, compelling story that is a tremendous debut book. Farrell manages to use a miracle during a disaster to show that miracles... are not always that... while also showing just how complicated and messy real life is in oh so many ways. The mystery is solid enough to keep the reader invested, and then the action kicks into high gear a bit as things begin to unravel. Finally, a choice is made in an instant that will affect numerous lives - and Farrell shows all of this with remarkable reality. The overall style and tone won't necessarily be exactly to everyone's liking, but stick around - the book really is very, very good. Very much recommended. ( )

The set up of The Falling Woman by Richard Farrell suggests philosophical musings and epiphanies about life. This character driven novel ends up more about the issue of privacy and politics. The most interesting aspect about this character driven book is that I enjoy the story although I do not care for either of the main characters. At the end, the book's premise is intriguing. The story keeps me reading until the end, but I leave not fully satisfied, looking for something more.

Implausible, yet too often predictable at times, this book about an NTSB investigation into an airliner crash is an interesting read. Thankfully it doesn't devolve into insider tech-speak and focuses instead on the human aftermath of a life-changing occurrence.

And, if the reader is tempted to abandon it along the way, as I was several times - don't.

Finally, I applaud Richard Farrell for delivering a most powerful conclusive ending that had me crying and applauding at the same time. Well done, sir! ( )

The emotional upheaval Radford goes through is beautifully described---and what an evolution....helped enormously by his talks with Erin, The Falling Woman. I liked the two main characters so much as they developed such a fascinating relationship. ( )
