Before the Fall

Rating: 5 Stars

Author: Noah Hawley

Before the Fall is a stunning novel that details the aftermath of a private jet crash. Hawley does an excellent job of depicting the past of each plane passenger with chapters told from each passenger’s perspective. As the author makes his way through the plane manifest, the reader begins to use clues from each story to answer the burning question, “what makes a chartered plane crash?” I loved the way the author slowly revealed bits of the mystery with each chapter. The ending was a beautiful display the struggles of being human and Hawley’s writing was breathtaking. Honestly, I can’t wait to read this book again and see what new things I pick up on the second time around.
