Before The Fall


"Before The Fall" By Noah Hawley is a mysterious book. A group of people decided to hop onto a plane back to New York. The flight was charted by David Bateman. Bateman is traveling with his wife, Maggie, the couple’s two young children, the family’s Israeli-born bodyguard, a friend who’s a financier and a successful painter who was offered a flight back to the city. 16 minutes later, the plane crashed. The painter Scott struggled in the water, and found no other survivors other than Bateman's 4 year old son, JJ. Swimming for hours in the cold, he got him and the 4 year old to safety. After the story/news went viral, he was known a hero, and a terrorist. Some people thought he was a hero, other people thought he caused the crash.
