The Last Flight

No current Talk conversations about this book.
thriller, FreakyFriday, plot twist
Quick read, plenty of suspense
The Last Flight was really a fun read! It kept me guessing throughout, and there were plenty of surprises. Though I kept wondering why we were only getting Eva's back story and not her current whereabouts, I didn't suspect until the end that she was on the plane after all. Got me on that one! I didn't suspect the Liz-Danielle connection either. I thought for a long time that Liz must be an undercover agent. I wasn't too surprised, though, that Eva had set up the whole meeting in the airport -- that was just too easy to be coincidence -- but I suspended disbelief for most of the book. Anyway, I thought it was a thoroughly enjoyable thriller and wonder about a movie based on the book.
We all liked The Last Flight, felt like you did, fun to read. Dodie and I both thought that Rory had changed the plans to Detroit/Puerto Rico after, somehow, arranging for the PR flight with Claire to crash. WRONG! Liz was just a too-friendly neighbor or so we thought .
Her daughter Ellie being Dani, then Danielle, we didn't have a clue. When Rico (I think his name was) gave C. the fake documents, I immediately thought "Mafia." Eva was, on the whole, well liked. After her sad life, she was on her way to success at Cal and threw it away bec. she thought the QB truly liked her and the help the school should have provided her never happened. Dex's real identity was a surprise, too. The fact that Claire wore a pink sweater and a pink sweater was seen in the surveillance tape was just a "red herring," so said Betty Ann. Eva's life ended with her finally being happy albeit briefly.
3.5 rounded up. It was pretty good but I wasn't a huge fan of Eva's storyline. Also, there were a couple of plotholes.
Your life will get pushed aside to finish this book
Enjoyed fast pace of this book. Pulled me in better than any I can ever remember. Two strong women. Two different reasons to disappear. One desperate enough to make it happen...Come along for the double POV's criss crossing from two ends of a timeline. Be ready to experience loss and new beginnings along with a happy level of confusion about which one is happening: just enough to keep you wondering what comes next.
"Fans of Lisa Jewell and Liv Constantine will love The Last Flight, a novel focusing on two women who meet in an airport, both alone, both scared, and both urgently needing an escape from their lives. Claire Cook has a husband whose temper burns as bright as his promising political career, and she has worked for months on a plan to get out. A chance meeting in an airport bar brings her together with a stranger equally as desperate. Together they hatch a plan to switch tickets - Claire taking Eva's flight to Oakland, and Eva traveling to Puerto Rico as Claire. But then one plane crashes, and it's clear that one of them wasn't telling the truth"--
