Okay - if I am going to read about the most notorious skyjacking in history- I expect to learn something. This book lead me to believe the mystery had been solved. it merely repeated rumors and guesses/speculative stories.
I don't know why I keep downloading apocalyptic fiction. None of them, including this one, gives me any reason to mourn the annihilation of mankind - particularly if he learns nothing from the near-erasure of the species.
There were aspects of this book that were very good. Ultimately, it is a book about regret. It was neither uplifting, nor particularly thought-provoking. Rather, the main character appeared to devolve, rather than evolve. She spent her entire youth complaining - which made it difficult to like her. The husband was perpetually deaf to the vast unhappiness of his beloved wife, which made it difficult to like him as well. Both children were tedious. This could have been a great book - but missed the mark.
