The characters in the novel are reasonably well drawn, although lacking in depth, but the real problem with the novel is that the story is simply not credible. The initial mystery of an airliner flying past its destination, being out of contact with the pilots appearing to be dead was a very good tease and got me hooked. However, the subsequent investigation, the technical details surrounding it, the conspiracy and the "surprise" ending seemed just too fantastic. The writing is not bad and certainly did not get in the way of the story. I have also read another of Julien Evans's flying novels, The Damocles Plot, which I felt was far more entertaining with a slightly more credible plot and a very appealing pilot hero.
There is a section towards the end of "Flight 935 Do You Read?" purporting to be a transcript of a cockpit voice recording and the reader is directed towards a web address where you can actually hear what the cockpit voice recorder was supposed to pick up. I took the trouble to look this up and listen to a part of it. I don't know who the voices belonged to, but it sounded like a bunch of friends with no acting experience sitting around reading in a stilted fashion from a script they had only just seen, with the sound of a vacuum cleaner in the background to simulate the background noise in an airliner. So I recommend you give that a miss!
