OK, so I really did not read it

by jimmieD on Jul 1, 2010

My wife and I listened to it on cd while driving. I was so cool, I bought the book for my Dad. He was a navigator in the Korean war and really enjoyed all the info about airplanes. Great book.


Awesome & Accurate

by NikkiC on Jul 27, 2009

Crichon spanned such broad topics, yet wrote about each one with precision and accuracy. As the daughter of a pilot and crash scene investigator, Airframe hit it home for me. The detailed explanations and examinations were well written. The storyline itself is excellent, There's a mix of mystery, conspiracy and cover-ups. It's a perfect balance that keeps you reading.


One of His Best

by ghmus7 on Dec 3, 2007

Even though the "dinasaur" books recieved such attention, I feel that this is one of Crichton's best books. The title is really a pun meaning both the "frame" on an airplane, and the "frame" of false accusations that a reporter tries to hang around the neck of the aviation industry. The story is engrossing, both for the way that the reader learns a lot about how airplanes are put together, and the cheap way in which the media sometimes represents the aviation industry.
