Into the Abyss: An Extraordinary True Story | [Carol Shaben]

Into the Abyss: An Extraordinary True Story

Only four men survived the plane crash. The pilot. A politician. A cop... and the criminal he was shackled to. On an icy night in October 1984, a commuter plane carrying nine passengers crashed in the remote wilderness of northern Alberta. Four survived: the rookie pilot, a prominent politician, a cop, and the criminal he was escorting to face charges. As the men fight through the night to stay alive, the dividing lines of power, wealth, and status are erased, and each man is forced to confront the precious and limited nature of his existence.

Publisher's Summary

Only four men survived the plane crash. The pilot. A politician. A cop... and the criminal he was shackled to.

On an icy night in October 1984, a commuter plane carrying nine passengers crashed in the remote wilderness of northern Alberta, killing six people. Four survived: the rookie pilot, a prominent politician, a cop, and the criminal he was escorting to face charges. Despite the poor weather, Erik Vogel, the 24-year-old pilot, was under intense pressure to fly. Larry Shaben, the author's father and Canada's first Muslim Cabinet Minister, was commuting home after a busy week at the Alberta Legislature. Constable Scott Deschamps was escorting Paul Archambault, a drifter wanted on an outstanding warrant. Against regulations, Archambault's handcuffs were removed - a decision that would profoundly impact the men's survival.

As the men fight through the night to stay alive, the dividing lines of power, wealth, and status are erased, and each man is forced to confront the precious and limited nature of his existence.

    "bad narration mars good story"
    What disappointed you about Into the Abyss?

    The narrator has an odd cadence. The choppy narration makes it a very hard listen. A shame as the story is good.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Tiffany Morgan’s performances?

    no

    "Good story, not good narration"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I was interested in the story as heard on NPR. However the narration on the audio book made it difficult to listen to. Morgan pauses in strange places, emphasizes unimportant words and sometimes sounds like she is reading a shopping list.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Tiffany Morgan?

    ANYONE
