Michael Crichton’s “Airframe” May 4, 2010

Posted by Chris Yates in PRCA 4335.

   Airframe was a little bit different than most of the other Michael Crichton novels I’ve read. It had less action and absolutely no science fiction, but it was fast-paced and interesting. The main character, Casey, works for Norton Airline, a company that designs and builds airplanes.  Her job is to represent the company whenever they get into a crisis situation, such as an accident involving one of their planes. Many of the PR-related tasks Casey is assigned to throughout the book seem realistic enough. She conducts research, talks to journalists, and sets up interviews.  She is even confronted with difficult ethical situations, but of course, everything is exaggerated a bit.  Overall, I think it’s a good example of public relations in pop culture, and I enjoyed it more than Kell on Earth and Hancock.
