Description

Xavier Ireland is a radio DJ who by night listens to the hopes, fears and regrets of sleepless Londoners and by day keeps himself very much to himself - until he is brought into the light by a one-of-a-kind cleaning lady and forced to confront his own biggest regret. This is a tale of love, loss, Scrabble and six degrees of separation, asking big questions about life and death, strangers and friends, heartache and comfort, and whether the choices we don't make affect us just as powerfully as those we do.

    By not so sure I'll fix that now
    This book is why I wouldn't want to resolve past issues nor ever believe happiness isn't fleeting. It greatly irritates you by the end after pages of simple yet over descriptive writing describing insignificant London surroundings as an average man with an above average job works out his "issues." Once it gets going it is an ok read but does leave you with an unresolved future after painstakingly resolving a past which he just ran away from. Lessons to take away--- none. Entertainment value, average.

    I absolutely loved this book. I got it for free from Starbucks and have not been able to put it down. The ending was brilliant even though it was a shame the book ended. I wanted to read on how his life went.

    I really enjoyed this read, in particular the author's writing style and skilful character building. I completely resonated with the various pictures that the author paints in this lovely story. I'm already recommending to friends and will be seeking out more of his work

    Got the free download from Starbucks thinking it wouldn't be up to much but I my surprise I really really enjoyed it. Coming fom Newcastle I think Pippas character is really well written. Great job Mark Watson!

    I found the links between the story lines, although central to holding it all together, a bit forced. However, a very enjoyable read and I'd like to read more from this author.

    With a few twists and turns this is good read. Heart stopping and written to make you wonder how on earth someone can get themselves in such tight spots... Consequences of your actions is a theme running through... Make you think, makes you laugh, makes you think some more. Yes, a good read.
  • A charming read

    I downloaded this book from Starbucks for free on my first day of holiday. Elegantly written with a real charm to the characters which draw you in to their individual stories and the way in which our choices in life can make such a difference to those around us, a fantastic read which really kicked my holiday off on a high! Thank you.

    Downloaded 2 days ago and read while on the train to and from work. Loved how the plot unfolded slowly, each time providing new details. A good read.
