Reviews

A fast, memorable read . . . when we look at the century in retrospect, he will emerge as one of the great writers
Literary Review
Enthralling . . . ranks with Keneally's Booker-winning best
Daily Mail
A smooth and elevated entertainment
Independent
Guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat . . . by the time the narrative puts its breaks on, you find he has navigated his fast-moving thriller over an impressive amount of thematic territory
The Sunday Times
Thomas Keneally has a keen eye for out-of-the-way cultural juxtapositions. Along with it goes an energetically eclectic imagination . . . out of the atmosphere on a beleaguered aircraft, he generates stifling suspense
The Sunday Times
Once you start reading, you can't put it down
Guardian
The reader's anxiety is awoken soon after take-off and is kept to a high pitch throughout
The Times
As an intellectual piece of suspense, Flying Hero Class can hardly be surpassed
Observer
A novel of great scope, intelligence and humanity
The Scotsman
