Book review: Flight or Fright

Author: Sudha Ramnath

A super interesting piece of work that keeps the reader intrigued from the beginning to the nail-biting finish.

The group of passengers aboard an aircraft are clueless as to what destiny has in store. The simple direct trip from Mumbai to Delhi is subjected to a hijack and thanks to the foresight and quick thinking of a RAW agent the plane is landed in some godforsaken plain. The plane catches fire claiming a pilot and a couple of passengers.

From here begins a tough cruise to survival in a foreign terrain and lack of recourses. The hostility is seen not just in the abundant nature around but also in the minds of the people.

The author has convincingly portrayed the roller coaster ride overwhelming the journey as well as the turmoil faced by the passengers which brings out their true personalities during adversity.

While the story seems predictable at one step, there is a secret though. There is a terrorist in their midst pretending to be one of them. What follows is the exciting revelations in the picturesque valleys.

The writing is lucid baring a few editing errors. The research by the author is palpable throughout and the nuances she has managed to cover for each passenger is commendable.
