Review Quotes

"Falling is the best kind of thriller (for me as a reader anyway). Characters you care deeply about. Nonstop, totally authentic suspense."
--James Patterson, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"T. J. Newman has taken a brilliant idea, a decade of real-life experience, and crafted the perfect summer thriller. Relentlessly paced and unforgettable."
--Janet Evanovich, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"Amazing . . . Intense suspense, shocks and scares plus chilling insider authenticity make this one very special."
--Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"A bullet train of a thriller with incredible tension and personal stakes. The real engine of this stunning and relentless book is how far would you go to save your family? I read Falling with my heart in my throat--this is Jaws at 35,000 feet. An extraordinary debut and the perfect summer page-turner."
--Don Winslow, New York Times bestselling author of The Force and The Cartel

"Heart pounding. Heart wringing. Heart STOPPING! A great book! One of those where you're afraid to turn the next page, but you can't stop."
--Diana Gabaldon, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Outlander series

"Buckle up for a completely original edge-of-your-seat thriller that will keep you guessing until the final nail-biting pages. Save your family or save the hundred passengers who have put their lives in your hands. You cannot save both. T. J. Newman's chilling novel stayed with me long after I finished reading it. This is the best thriller I've read in years."
--Adrian McKinty, New York Times bestselling author of The Chain

"A jet-propelled thriller that will have you in its grip from first page to last. A truly astonishing debut and an incredible work of pure suspense."
--Steve Cavanagh, #1 bestselling author of the Eddie Flynn series

"Falling redefines the phrase roller-coaster ride. It redefines the term edge-of-your-seat thriller. Falling is that rarest of things, a book that is even better than everyone says it is. T. J. Newman has delivered a stunning debut."
--Dervla McTiernan, #1 internationally bestselling author

3/5 Stars Alternating POV & Nonlinear Timeline This book/story takes place over the span of a flight between LA & New York, although there are some flashbacks to earlier times. I thought that there were some interesting characters, Jo & Big Daddy wear definitely two of them. Overall, the story was a bit predictable although it was interesting to see how it all unfolded. Although it was nice seeing the different POVs throughout the events of the day, I found the swift POV changes to get confusing and it bogged down the story a bit. I know that this is a rarity, but I honestly think that this book would have been better as a movie written the way that it was. Either that or the writing style needed a bit of an overhauling. Thank you & Simon & Schuster for this gifted copy; this opinion is my own
