It was obvious from the start that this was not going to be an award winning literary masterpiece, but I really wasn't expecting that. I was hoping for a light read to enjoy while travelling and that is exactly what it is. What made this book particularly funny for me is with all the travel that I do I found myself identifying with the hostie rather than the passengers.
I found the book even funnier when I was reading it while I was on the plane. I thought at times the author was over exaggerating about some of the passengers but looking back at some of the flights I have been on I realised she probably wasn't. There is no way that I will ever touch a hostie again. I thought I was being friendly by touching their arm to attract their attention - guess I will just have to politely yell now.
One criticism I did have is that I felt like it was dumbed down a little, the author explains some things in way too obvious detail and others she skims over as though the reader knows what she is talking about. I did get a little sick of reading analogy's about how slightly less than average intelligence one young female passenger was.
All around though it was a decent book and for $5 on amazon, it is a funny - one part is actually laugh out loud funny - holiday read.
