A Good Tension Filled Ride That Many Public Transport Commuters Can Relate To! 30 mars 2011
Par James N Simpson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Priya Basil's Strangers on the 16:02 takes the reader on a train ride where as many commuters who've ridden during peak times, such as when schools get out in this short story, can easily relate to the sardine tin packed carriages narration of the two characters onboard this terrifying London train ride. One of these Kerm is a doctor, the other Helen is a woman in her early 20s. Neither know one another but are squashed into each other personal space. Kerm subtlety checks out Helen, Helen is oblivious of Kerm and everyone else as her headphones and constant Facebook interactions on her phone help her to mentally survive the commute. However a trio of cowardly school kids who like to disgracefully play the race card to justify their behaviour, are about to violently interrupt the carriage as they flee the consequences of avoiding purchasing a 3 pound ticket. Helen and Kerm may well pay the ultimate price for instead of pretending nothing is happening like the other cowardly commuters on the train, daring to speak up against the thugs.

For the most part this is a really good short story. However crucial word count is wasted with the backstories of both Helen and Kerm and even one of the cowardly thugs. Kerm's is especially boring and none play any real part in the story to justify the lengthiness of their inclusion. Strangers on the 16:02 also ends without the reader finding out what happens to any of the characters after the incidents of the final pages. If you pay good money for a story, you expect the author's imagination to come up with the ending, instead of you the reader having to think up your own. This is especially a factor when you consider this is part of the Quick Reads promotion of books designed to get people interested in and reading fiction, who usually read magazines, comic books, newspapers and similar mediums. These first time ever or in a while fiction readers may not be motivated to read more if they assume they've got to come up with the endings themselves.

If you like the plot of this story you might also want to check out a very similar plot in a play and later made into film called Last Train to Freo.

It happens every day in London 8 mars 2012
Par Lance Mitchell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
The characters in this book develop quite well for such a short story, and they all have their different dilemmas.

I always find it interesting to look at people in train carraiges, airports, railway stations, shopping centres, and even in cars alongside me in traffic jams, and wonder about their lives. Where have they come from and where are they going to? What is going on in their lives? Are they agonising over some huge, personal life problem?

This is what Strangers is about. Here are all these complex characters, thrown together in a railway carriage on a local train that is London bound. None of them know what is going on in any of the others' lives, and they may be surprised if they did. Appearances can be very deceptive.

Something else which made this book very interesting for me was the connection to the news and discussions that I hear on BBC Radio London 94.9 on my drive to and from work every day. The author does a great job of coupling the strands of her story to the harsh reality of everyday life in and around London. There is such diversity, which should be celebrated alongside the less discussed similarities across society.

I thought that there was room to extend the story to perhaps around a hundred pages, which would have allowed the characters to develop even more. However, I disagree with the negative criticisms about the ending. If you want to find out what happened next, you should tune in, even on the internet, to the London news. This story is bound to be featured, as it is a description of what is happening right now.

Well done Priya Basil. A very good, creative quick read.
