Book Beginnings: Flight of Dreams by Ariel Lawhon

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

Flight of Dreams by Ariel Lawhon

 "'This was not the first bomb threat, correct?'"

The book begins with the Hindenberg Accident Hearings in New Jersey but then we go back in time to three days before the accident, when the Hindenberg is taking on its passengers in Frankfurt, Germany, and gives us the story of many of the passengers and crew aboard the ill-fated voyage.

I really enjoyed this book.

Loved how the author used the passengers as the basis of the story and didn't get too technical.

Have a great reading weekend, and enjoy reading FLIGHT OF DREAMS.

I see you have already reviewed the book. Going to check it out.

This sounds interesting - I like the beginning. I've often wanted to know more about The Hiddenberg, it's passengers and what really happened.
