The Flight Attendant
The Flight Attendant: A Novel | Chris Bohjalian
From the New York Times bestselling author of The Guest Room, a powerful story about the ways an entire life can change in one night: A flight attendant wakes up in the wrong hotel, in the wrong bed, with a dead man - and no idea what happened. Cassandra Bowden is no stranger to hungover mornings. She's a binge drinker, her job with the airline making it easy to find adventure, and the occasional blackouts seem to be inevitable. She lives with them, and the accompanying self-loathing. When she awakes in a Dubai hotel room, she tries to piece the previous night back together, already counting the minutes until she has to catch her crew shuttle to the airport. She quietly slides out of bed, careful not to aggravate her already pounding head, and looks at the man she spent the night with. She sees his dark hair. His utter stillness. And blood, a slick, still wet pool on the crisp white sheets. Afraid to call the police - she's a single woman alone in a hotel room far from home - Cassie begins to lie. She lies as she joins the other flight attendants and pilots in the van. She lies on the way to Paris as she works the first class cabin. She lies to the FBI agents in New York who meet her at the gate. Soon it's too late to come clean-or face the truth about what really happened back in Dubai. Could she have killed him? If not, who did? Set amid the captivating world of those whose lives unfold at forty thousand feet, The Flight Attendant unveils a spellbinding story of memory, of the giddy pleasures of alcohol and the devastating consequences of addiction, and of murder far from home.

I think I had about 6 3/4 hours of reading for #24b4monday. Was at work both on Saturday and Sunday and at church on Saturday evening and started late on Friday, so I didn‘t get as much reading as I would have liked to.

Hunsakermountain What app did you use to create the graph? 3w
melissajayne @Hunsakermountain I used the Bookly app. It tracks how much I read once I hit the “start reading” button. And once I hit stop, I can put in where I‘m at, depending on the format of the book, either the no of pages or percentage of where I‘m at. 3w
Hunsakermountain Thanks! 3w

This was not quite what I expected. The thriller elements were interesting and twisty although I did get most of them. The main character was an extreme example of self distraction to the point that is was hard to empathise. It also finished abruptly and was a little too nicely tied up for me. A quick holiday read

All I could manage today #24b4monday. Up to about 6 hours of reading. Had hoped to read for another hour but I had too much on my mind tonight.

Ok, ok this is not a complex psychological thriller. It‘s a quick and easy murder mystery with a self-destructive protagonist who drinks too much and has too many one night stands. Lol I dream of a day when our heroine isn‘t a drunk ( girl on the train) or on meds ( girl in cabin 10). Who‘s your fav mystery heroine?

I just can‘t. It‘s just too stupid but admittedly, I did finish it. I, then, proceeded to roll my eyes so hard that I‘ve now seen the inside of my own skull which is a shame because I do like the author‘s other works.

Just finished this one up on audible. It wasn‘t really my cup of tea. I struggle with these books I consider broken women thrillers. I can absolutely see why people who enjoy these types of reads would love it though and by the end I had gotten some investment.

This made my day earlier this week. It was posted on Instagram by Kaley Cuoco -- the utterly perfect and spectacularly talented actor (and producer!) who will be bringing my flight attendant, Cassie Bowden, to life in the upcoming TV series, THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT. In the meantime? Still nine episodes left of the always brilliant and always hysterical THE BIG BANG THEORY.

I am compulsively on time. Nothing raises my stress level more than being late. This book almost made me late for work this morning. (Thanks @ChrisBohjalian ) I had to leave the last 22 pages until dinner time! And if I told you the suspense that left me in I‘d have to hide this under a spoiler tag. Another excellent read from an author I discovered by accident and now actively seek out.

Crazeedi One of his I haven't read, not sure why. I think I looked at it at library and though no. Might have to rethink 3mo

Ahh more thrillers with memory loss 😝 I appreciated the author's note about research though, and the shout out to the memoir Blackout. Entertaining for late nights reading on my phone. A twist I hadn't seen coming, shame on me, along with some other predictable curves. I'm reminded that I've never longed to be a flight attendant 😂 but I do miss hanging out in Europe. #mommyreads #crime #thriller #ebook

Maybe it‘s time to change books. I can‘t read too much about Trump without serious mood effects.

The game is a defensive showdown so far. The Patriots should be racking up points but LA‘s defense won‘t make that easy.

Is #LitsyPartyOfOne about ignoring the game or bringing on the commentary? 😂

Bklover I think either is fine!! I feel the same about Trump. I have to limit my news watching. 3mo

"And in the night, she wept. It was, she tried to convince herself, because of the cats. They always got to her. The thirteen-year-old calicos that had lived together their whole lives, discarded because their owner had a new boyfriend and he insisted he was allergic to them." -- from THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT, one of the Washington Post's Ten Best Thrillers and Mysteries of 2018. Now out in paperback. Do you have your Snowpocalypse reading?

simpledutchgirl I finished this book yesterday. This psychological thriller is filled with surprising twists and turns....I couldn't put it down until I finished. 4mo

I love Cassie Bowden, my flight attendant. I really do. She is that bird with the wounded wing who flies into your living room window one day, dusts off her wings, and flies into it again the very next day.
