Each chapter switches point of view as readers are offered a glimpse into the four individuals situations and the emotions that they are subject to. As all of these stories are filled out in further detail readers are offered a look at how all these individuals lives have been affected by the plane crash and an insight into the interlinking stories all changed by Flight 2940. Revealing too much of the plot threatens to deprive readers the wonder thrill of watching the story play out and the real beauty of this novel is in making this discovery first hand. Never be in doubt that each of the four stories will pull together well.
Falling is a wonderfully absorbing read and it feels wrong to classify it as simply a psychological thriller. Undoubtedly this is an addictive read which builds to a pulsating climax but it is also beautifully written and emotionally rich, identifying those thoughts and feelings which are often so hard to put into words. I was hugely impressed by how Emma Kavanagh summed up many of those feelings which are so difficult to describe, notably the willingness to 'keep things on an even keel' instead of unsettling the status quo, even when relationships are hanging by a thread and secrets hide behind an unspoken tension. For readers it is easy to empathise with Tom, Jim and Freya and simply to label Cecilia as self-centred and a cold hearted mother but as the story unravelled I began to appreciate that there was a rationale to the way she behaved and my heart went out to her as it became more apparent that she has been suffering with her own pain throughout.
Outcomes are varied for each of the people involved in these four stories but this is an uplifting read, focusing on picking yourself up and battling on in a world which has fundamentally shifted. A poignant read which I would highly recommend and a remarkable achievement for a debut novel. Falling is a clever capturing of the thoughts that people think they should be feeling and those that they actually do. Well paced with a heightening tension leaving you with a subtle appreciation that making life work can often be about ploughing on, gritting your teeth and working at making relationships and family life a success.
