Before the FallBefore the Fall by Noah Hawley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Interesting mystery. The writing itself is very smooth and engaging, but what I got most out of it was the depth and breadth of characterizations.

The setup is simple. We have the crash of a plane and two survivors, a little kid and a strangely cerebral artist.

Everything else is loads and loads of context, interactions, even eventually the reveal to the crash, but in the meantime, people behaving like people makes this a rather interesting novel. A good number of commentaries on our modern life, too, in relation to ethics or just doing the right thing.

The journey is everything.
