review A Northern Line Minute The Northern Line

William Leith author of The Hungry Years and Bits of Me Are Falling Apart tells in A Northern Line Minute the darkly humorous tales of his escapades on the Tube. I m still going with my reading of the Penguin Lines series The short size and story length make these books great to carry around in a handbag in hope of extra reading time or as a short read between longer books A Northern Line Minute falls into the latter category for me as I read it in one sitting after finishing another novel I was also a little too lazy to get off the couch for another book This short story is a great one to read in one setting It s tense and well written but with enough meanders into lighter subjects to stop the story from becoming particularly creepy A Northern Line Minute is not a book you would actually want to read on the Tube or Underground particularly if there s a whiff of smoke about It s told in the first person and grabs you from the moment the narrator tells you that they think they can smell smoke deep in the Underground Should he get off the train at the next station or is it all a figment of his imagination As the narrator ruminates on what may or may not be happening he imparts a lot of information about the Northern Line and how it differs from some of the other Tube lines being deeper I found that part rather interestingOverall I enjoyed this story and I m eager to check out other works by William Leithhttpsamstillreadingwordpresscom The Purpose-Guided Universe in A Northern Line Minute the darkly humorous tales of his escapades on the Tube.
