"Strong and electric!" (Washington Post)
"Truly horrific...delicious terror. Mayday is a novel for the true connoisseur of disaster novels." (The New York Times Book Review)
It's very difficult to stop listening to this book. You may find yourself driving the long way home just to hear more of it. The action is non-stop and the story is completely realistic. Get this book! you won't regret it. It's one of the best listens I've had.
I tried hard to get past the stiff narration to give the story a chance. I tried really, really hard. Five unfortunates survive a high altitude disaster to suffer a plane full of brain-fried zombies with "arms outstretched" and libidinous desires. Oh, please. It gets worse. There's a man eating Golden Retriever, unrelenting references to vomit and other body excretions, gigantic holes in both sides of the fuselage but damage only to the voice radios, and plot developments that require impossible reader imagination. The book is formulaic, unsophisticated and completely indigestible.
If this is a movie, I imagine Bruce Willis or Stallone as the main character. I bit 'over the top' antics required to save the day.
A chilling tale of an airline disaster. It really makes you wonder if something liek this could happen. A great tale.
How could it not be good? Nelson Demille has always told a great story and with Scott Brick reading, it is definitely a great listen. I highly recommend this book as well as other Demille books. Only disappointed that I've listened to all that they have. He is now a favorite author of mine.
This is the first audiobook I have listened to that I disliked. It was way too over the top, too implausible in every way. It went on and on in the same vein for hours and I can't believe that I finished it. Don't waste your time with this one.
