Around the World in a Bad Mood!: Confessions of a Flight Attendant Reviews
Parts of it are entertaining, but parts of it are kind of whiny. Not the most pleasant read, but still interesting if aviation is your thing.
"Around the World" doesn't attempt to change air travel or have great literary impact. It's light entertainment. It helps to laugh when we find ourselves in the bad situations Foss describes so well.
So accurate for a flight attendant
I loved the whole story from beginning to end. I am not a frequent flier but I've flown enough to know that the passengers can be just that way. I was on a flight one time that if the lady next to the window would have given up her seat she would have been moved to first class because my seat would not return to an upright position so my wife and I were both moved up to first class.
This is so true and so funny.
Parts of this could have been good, if it had been told in a form that actually made sense. The use of poetry, Shakespearean verse, and excessive alliteration made it just annoying. Plus there was a lot of "poor me" whining. Even at $3.03, (kindle edition) it was overpriced. I feel sorry for those who paid the paperback price.
From my neighbor friend where I grew up!
Pretty disappointing. I have heard better story telling from a flight-attendant friend of mine who didn't even have half the stories this woman did. It's not that the stories are bad... just a terribly put-together book, not well written.
