GEOFF RYMAN 253 PDF

Jun 07, Jenne rated it it was amazing words each about passengers on a London subway train, and the entire novel takes place in seven minutes. The general premise is intriguing, as I have often wondered what people are thinking about on public transport. However the book is mess because of several key failings: 1. Although each page of characters makes for a relatively quick read in theory, in practice for me anyway , trying to remember how the characters from different carriages link together meant that I was constantly tracking back and forth through the pages trying to jog my memory. Very irritating and made An infuriating read. Very irritating and made the whole reading experience for me very disjointed 2.

Very irritating and made An infuriating read. Very irritating and made the whole reading experience for me very disjointed 2. Almost every character appeared to have been pondering some huge life changing event. Nonsense 3. The footnotes were written in a style that attempted a form of self-referential humour but just ended up being annoying.

If your concept is to write a novel based around the number , it seems like cheating when footnotes are added to some pages to give more of a background. I actually skipped it, as it seemed totally superfluous. Is it likely that an underground train at rush hour would be populated with so many people who have significant relationships?

I find that highly unlikely The concept of this book really excited me, and I expected to shoot through it given how it was structured. You see people for 10 minutes at a time and can only form opinions based on that short time frame.

All pages are dedicated to a solitary individual, with Ryman spinning out a short tale a character study, if you will of each person making a trek for a momentary iota in their lives towards something, whether positive or not, in the distance. Well, there are humans, to be precise, and one other individual who is eventually revealed to be a pigeon who has inadvertently made its way into the underground. There are rushing noises, these a generally quite salubrious sense of humidity, air rushes in from unexpected angles as tube trains rush on into stations, and everything goes at a Hell of a rate. Once it becomes part of your routine, though, its flaws severe delays and technical problems, mainly became all too apparent.
