The Flight Attendant by Chris Bohjalian

3/5 stars

Fiction – Suspense

Meet Cassie Bowden–a flight attendant in her late thirties with a highly self-destructive lifestyle. If she’s not actively tending to customers on a flight, she’s drinking, to the point of blacking out, or engaging in some form of promiscuity with the next random guy she meets. Then she wakes up next to the dead body of a man she slept with the night before with no recollection of what happened. Did she kill him? She can’t seem to remember. If not her, who did this? And why? Cassie is determined to figure out the truth, which, of course, isn’t as simple as it may seem.

I had a bit of a hard time getting into this book, but I suppose it was to be expected after reading four five-star books in a row. The book was decent overall but didn’t live up to my expectations of it. I found it drug on a bit, and I was hoping for a bit more suspense. However, the author did a really nice job of establishing the main character and story line. The ending did have a really great twist, which I am a total sucker for. I think a couple more twists throughout would have kept me intrigued a whole lot more.
