Haley managed to create a number of parallel storylines that harmoniously complement each other. The novel describes the life of the airport, or rather a specific day, though it's impossible to call it an ordinary day: one of the planes gets a terrorist and drives an improvised explosive device. The airplane that suffers disaster is urgently needed to land, but this can not be done for a raging blizzard in the airport area. In addition to all the difficulties appear in the form of dispatchers, who barely cope with the huge amount of work, hundreds of disgruntled delays in passenger flights, and the arranged protest action in close proximity of residents against the intolerable noise issued by aircraft taking off only aggravates an already difficult situation. Very well described the work of the airport, while the author relieves readers of unnecessary complex technical details.

It also describes the characters perfectly: each character has its ownNot like the other character, while the heroes are not divided into 100% on the positive and negative, all have their pros and cons. This is another advantage of the novel: everything as in real life, there are absolutely no bad or good people. The plot of the novel develops rapidly and each chapter ends, at the most intriguing moment, which keeps constantly in suspense and wants to quickly start reading the next chapter. Until the end of the novel, intrigue remains, and it is not clear whether the story will have a happy ending. The author manages to give a note of tragedy at the climax of the novel, at the moment of trying to land the plane, from the description of these actions goosebumps run through.

It should also be said about the book appearance, since it is no secret that the beautiful "packaging", the greater the chance that it will buy. Hardback, dense pages of excellent quality, a large readable font.
