On a foggy summer night eleven people ten privileged one down on his luck painter depart Martha's Vineyard on a private jet headed for New York Sixteen minutes later the unthinkable happens the plane plunges into the ocean The only survivors are the painter Scott Burroughs and a f First let's talk about the cover of Before the Fall because this has to go down as one of the worst book covers of 2016 maybe the decade maybe of all time I checked this book out three times from the library and the first two times I couldn't even bring myself to read it I would pick it up look at that bland lifeless cover with big stupid letters and oh boy check it out the word fall looks like it's actually falling and the whole thing really just looks like a giant letter T and the colors are so uninviting anyway So yeah I judged a book by its cover And I was wrong That old saying really is true and I'll be damned if this book isn't the best example of not judging a book by its cover I've ever seen And I'm sorry that so much of my review has focused on something so insignificant and I'm gonna talk about the book at some point but I had to get that out Thanks for indulging me if you made it this far I'm sorry Let's discuss the inside of the book The stuff that actually matters like the words and stuff chapters and whatnot The characters and the story and the mystery and suspense Oh boyHere's how I can break it down for you Noah Hawley is the writer and producer of the amazing FX television series Fargo Definitely do yourself a favor and watch that show if you haven't already I don't watch a ton of TV and I'm not just saying that because I'm on a book website trying to be all like oh yeah TV hahaha I'd rather be reading obviously I'm saying that because I have limited time for books and TV in general and Fargo is worth the time If you haven't seen the movie then gee whiz you have to do that immediately Stop living under a rock man OK so I did all that to say this reading Before the Fall is like watching a season of an amazing TV show The beginning of the book was like watching a pilot episode where a plane with a bunch of Donald Trump level rich people crashes and it's super intense andman we just gotta find out what the heck happens and there is this crazy story of survival It's super fast paced and I felt like the book was gonna push down the gas pedal and never let off But then you get to episode two and things feel a little different The mystery is still there but now we are slowing things down a bit and developing the characters Each episode kinda starts to focus on a different person from the crash Then it goes to a deeper level and starts examining the impact the media has on spinning news stories out of control It hits on what it means to be a hero and trying to live a normal private life again I mean honestly when I got to the end it didn't feel like the mystery was all that important any and not all that shocking and there wasn't this like oh my God huge plot twist moment And that's why it felt like a good TV show with good writing I cared about the characters I cared about what happened It was giving me something deeper than an episode of Law and Order It kept me invested without having to keep shocking me or revealing something I never saw coming There's really just a lot than a plane crash mystery suspense thriller going on here It's a very memorable book that will stick with me for a bit I didn't expect much from it and I was pleasantly surprised and completely sold after just a few chapters I guess what I'm saying is you really can't judge a book by its cover and I'm glad I decided to give this one a shot because it was well worth it Read Before the Fall watch Fargo the TV series and watch the movie if you haven't seen it yet for crying out loud
