Harper Lane has problems. In a few hours, she'll have to make a decision that will change her life forever. But when her flight from New York to London crash-lands in the English countryside, she discovers that she's made of tougher stuff than she ever imagined. As Harper and the survivors of Flight 305 struggle to stay alive in the aftermath of the crash, they soon realize that this world is very different from the one they left. Their lives are connected, and some believe they've been brought here for a reason. In addition to Harper, several other passengers seem to hold clues about why Flight 305 crashed.

First 100 pages kept me very engaged, but the writer becomes over involved in the sci-fi aspect as well as his own "internet" background after the 2/3 of the novel. The chapters are titled after the voice of the characters which is a creative approach.

Pretty cool. I think I devoured the first two parts of the book in a couple of days. It's a plane crash! Reminded me of LOST. But instead of Jack and Kate, we get Nick and Harper, whom I think were definitely cooler than the other two. Sorry LOST. I really liked the story-arc and the story-line for the future. It seemed plausible to me-- though I don't really wish it to happen. Ha ha!

Could not put down for the first 100 or so pages. But after that the story kind of fell apart for me. Yes, I know its science fiction, but there were some big holes in the story that were hard to look past. And at times towards the end of the book I felt like I was reading a young adults novel.

The story started out strong and really captured my interest but in the second part the author went into passive mode. Instead of living out the story we get a lot of exposition. We are told what happened in several passive episodes. This could have been a trilogy if he had fleshed out the second half of the story and stuck with the intense, character driven style of the first part. Worth the read but could have been so much more.

Of all the things that could have happened, what was least expected is what could happen now if then is that as well as it will be if the now is then fixed before it becomes what is now.

“I actually know of a technology that addresses human nature, nurtures understanding, enhances compassion— some of those very issues you cited, Mr. Stone.”
