Présentation de l'éditeur

The autobiographical tale of a stubborn, thirty something commuter, who wasn't prepared to lose a petty argument on Facebook.

Infuriated by the snoozing passengers surrounding him, Andy posted a status declaring that sleeping on trains is a complete waste of time.

His friends disagreed.

In a bid to prove them wrong, Andy set out to write a book from start to finish on the daily commute.

"As They Slept" is a collection of comical tales of travel and trepidation, guaranteed to make you laugh.

In his well received first book, Andy sets out to explain how to eradicate lost property, why women can't use their pockets, and exactly when it's ok to lie.




Customer Reviews:

“Great concept, Brilliantly written and something that pretty much everyone can relate to!”

“I really enjoyed this and have truly laughed out loud several times (much to the annoyance of people around me) so that makes it a winner for me!”

“This had me laughing all the way through, a great read after a stressful day too!”

“This is an absolutely hilarious book. I highly recommend it if you are looking for some light reading and a giggle.”

“A thoroughly enjoyable book. Very perceptive and so very funny. Am looking forward to the next release. Best witty book I have come across in ages.”

It's such a long time since I laughed out loud as I read. I think that would have been during my first brush with Adrian Mole. Before that there was A Camping We Will Go by John Melluish, handed on to me by my mother and enjoyed by my daughter also.
So many of Andy's situations are shared experiences - trying to return an item which does not work, for instance.
I also love the way he builds up the character of his baby daughter.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hilarious! 9 février 2013
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com

I bought this book not knowing what it was about, as it was on special on my Kindle and had good reviews. I finished reading it within three hours as I could not put it down! It had me giggling away on my morning commute, gaining fairly odd looks from the other passengers! It is insightful and thoughtful, covering all sorts of topics, from the comical and pointless thoughts that go through your mind while on the train, to serious and moving observations about life. I have recommended this to all my friends, and can't wait to read the next instalment!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 REALLY good debut. Gets better in Part 2 22 avril 2013

I'm glad I read book 2 first. This one isn't quite as funny as the sequel. This version has lots of ideas on news outlets (print, digital, good, bad), improved calendar spacing of holidays, train passes for seating based on need. Interesting but not as funny as #2.

The difficulty of October and the passing of his grandfather was very evident in the writing. While he explained what was going on it wasn't described in great detail but the tone of several chapters was changed. For a few weeks it was more serious and I felt sad for him too. By early November Andy was back on track.

I will definitely look for the future installments. And just so you know Andy...most Americans hate the Barney song too.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A surprise gem! 5 février 2013
Par Tony James Slater - Publié sur Amazon.com

I didn't know what to expect when I bought this book - I just saw that it was selling incredibly well, and was intrigued by the concept.
How glad I am, that I discovered it! I read it in two sittings. From start to finish the book is light-hearted, yet covers all manner of human conditions; from wonderment to frustration to tragedy. Never taking itself too seriously - after all, it resulted from an argument on Facebook - this book charts the thoughts and feelings of one man on his daily commute - and through him, reveals all those little things that you or I might think about, that we assume no-one else does! Like why does the hairdresser just HAVE to chat to you constantly, and is product X REALLY 'New And Improved' - or are they just writing that on the box?!
I really, thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was a tiny glimpse into the author's soul, as well as his morning commute. What makes a regular person tick - what is happening in his life, what upsets or annoys him, combined with a dash of off-beat philosophy.
I'm really looking forward to the next instalment, and I think that in ten, or twenty, or fifty year's time, this book will still be interesting - a window into what life was like for a typical London commuter.
And I have to admit, I also misheard the lyrics to 'Living On A Prayer' the first time - and for years (and years, and years!) I used to sing (sadly): "Gina was-a dying of aids..."
I dare you NOT to hear that the next time you play it!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 "My baby takes the morning train...." 22 avril 2014
Par Whistlers Mom - Publié sur Amazon.com

Meet Andy. He's a strange, but functioning, Gen-Xer. Or maybe strangely functioning. Or functionally strange. It's tough to decide.
Anyway, he's a thirty-something guy with a wife and small daughter who lives in a London suburb and has a one-hour daily commute (by train) to his job as an accountant. Rather than sleep through it he decided to write a book. So instead of just sitting and thinking, he sits and thinks and writes it down. The results are very entertaining.

I like this book because the author is likable. He's a bit goofy, but basically he tries to do the right thing. When he realized that alcohol was playing too large a role in his life, he quit drinking it. When his beer gut applied for its own zip code, he cut out junk food and started doing more walking and lost 85 pounds. And yet, he's not so admirable as to be irritating. He gained 20 pounds of the weight back and and had to lose it again. When he tried to save money by bringing coffee in a thermos, he left the thermos on the train so many times he he barely broke even.

I enjoyed getting inside this young (to me) man's head and learning how he copes with modern life. I agree with other reviewers that the second book in the series has more belly laughs and I'm looking forward to volume #3.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A rare and exciting treat! 31 janvier 2013
Par George Mahood - Publié sur Amazon.com

I thoroughly enjoyed As They Slept. What a brilliant and unique way in which to write a book! His astute and witty observations on life have succeeded in making a series of seemingly ordinary events into incredibly entertaining ones. I also particularly love the quick turnaround of this book, and, by the sound of it, the next instalments between writing them and publishing them - finished writing it one week, published the next. He's not wasting time with edit after edit, nor discussing revisions with editors (not that it needs ANY editing or revising) but it makes the writing feel even more fresh and original, which is a rare and exciting treat. I'm really looking forward to following his commute for the rest of his year. Great stuff, Andy.
