    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Open Skies the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed having the author narrate the book himself. I had originally planned on listening while I was reorganizing my den but found the story so captivating, I had to just sit and enjoy. Great character interaction and Mr. Block's knowledge of the airline industry contributes greatly to the believability of the story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jack Sawyer. The pilot turned detective was an interesting twist. I particularly enjoyed the interaction with his ex-wife and a new love interest. I'm sure there is much of Mr. Block in this character, being an ex-pilot, himself.


    Which character – as performed by Thomas Block – was your favorite?

    I loved Elmer. Mr. Block must have had a lot of fun with with this character.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I used to travel quite a bit in my job before retiring so freqently listened to audible books while on the road. This is one that would have made me want to pull off at a rest stop and hear the ending before reaching my destination.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm amazed that someone actually gave this a one star rating. He complained about the audio quality which I found to be fine. I listened through the small speaker on my Kindle with no problems and particularly enjoyed Mr. Block's narration. I suppose you can't please everyone but personally, I'm waiting for more from Thomas Block.
