Goodnight Malaysian 370 by Ewan Wilson and Geoff Taylor


From Goodreads:

Shocking new book on the disappearance of Malaysia airlines flight 370

The truth behind the loss of Flight 370 will shock the travelling public.

The book by New Zealand pilot Ewan Wilson and journalist Geoff Taylor presents compelling evidence about what actually occurred in the final hours of Flight 370, some of it based on new interviews with family members of pilot Zaharie Ahmad Shah.
The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight 370 captured the world’s attention and shocked everyone.

The book takes you to Kuala Lumpur International Airport on March 8 and brings together the lives of passengers and crew who ultimately met their fate on board what should have been a routine flight to Beijing on a well respected airline operating a state-of-the-art airliner with a near faultless record.

For the first time the book presents a detailed analysis of the flight, the incredible route it took, and who the authors believe was in charge of the aircraft as it plunged into the Indian Ocean.

The book investigates each piece of evidence and eliminates all the possible scenarios until the reader is left with one shocking and unbelievable conclusion as to what happened to end the lives of 239 people that night.

What happened to MH370 was no accident. It was deliberate and it was calculated and it should never have been allowed to happen.

My thoughts on this book:

Goodnight Malaysian 370 is a book about flight MH370 which disappeared on its way from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in 2014. The disappearance of the flight has been a mystery with no definitive answers. The authors of this book share thoughts on the possible cause of its disappearance along with the 239 lives aboard.

The authors present different scenarios all the way up to their final conclusion. All possible causes are exhausted and the final conclusion is the best answer they can give based on the evidence available, yet it’s all still speculation due to the fact that they haven’t been able to locate the plane or black boxes. Truly the only items recovered have been some wreckage.

I read this book in 2017 and it seems strange to claim it as a favorite, but I’ve had such a huge interest in this story and the book turned out to be really good. The authors did a nice job laying everything out for readers. It’s written well and very thought- provoking. I think this is a valuable book for all those interested in discovering the possible fate of flight MH370.

It’s been nearly 5 years and the plane still hasn’t been found after multiple searches, but I hope that future searches will help the families to know what happened that day on March 8th, 2014.

“We dedicate this book to the 239 people who lost their lives on MH370 on March 8, 2014, on a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. One of our purposes in writing the book was, in some small way to convey the human stories from the tragedy. We hope we have done this without adding upset to the terrible toll relatives and friends are already facing. Our other, more important task was to pursue the truth about what exactly happened. That is one small contribution we feel we can make to this whole terrible affair.”

    Such a sad happening when this tragedy covered. I’m very interested in knowing the author’s conclusion. The book must be a difficult read.
    Thanks for sharing Jen. I pray someday the answers are found to help the families have some closure if that’s even possible.

    1. I think you’d like the book. The authors share information on some of the passengers and also share multiple scenarios. By the end, the conclusion they come up with is shocking. I just wish there was a 100% accurate answer for the families. Their conclusion isn’t the exact same as what I believe happened, but it’s close and very thought-provoking.

    1. I agree, Jen. It’s unbelievable how long it’s been and the fact that they can’t find the plane is scary. If the authors are correct with their final conclusion, they may never find the it either. Thanks for checking it out. Have a great weekend! ♥️

    1. I totally agree with you. Honestly, I was looking for answers and that’s exactly what I got. They narrow it down well, but I don’t know if I 100% believe their final thoughts. I believe in a version of it though. It wasn’t very hard to read as it’s more of an investigative type book. Thank you 🙂

    1. That’s so true and such a scary thought. Locating the plane is like finding a needle in a haystack. What’s even more scary to me is the possibility that all those people were in the hands of one very mentally sick person. It’s such a nightmare. Thanks for your comment.

    1. It’s definitely worth the read, Carla. I’m still just mind-boggled by the whole ordeal. When you get to the end of the book and the authors share their final conclusion, you may feel the same as me–that the plane may never be found. It’s just heartbreaking. Thanks, Carla. ♥️

    1. You know, it was one of those stories that was on the news for under a week and then mainly just gone with only little updates here and there. It’s so sad and I can’t imagine what it’s been like for these families to not have closure. I hope they still find it. ♥️
