review ☆ Eleven author Mark Watson Epless Londoners and by day keeps himself very much to himself until he is brought into. Xavier Ireland moved from Australia to London five years ago and is a late night talk show host He has become a uasi therapist to his listeners but in his usual life he is a loner who tries not to get involved in other people s livesAs the story unfolds we discover what happened to Xavier which caused this change in him including changing his name from Chris and he also discovers a way to try and get back to his old selfAlthough this is the main story there is also another large thread running through the book which is how a seemingly innocuous action or inaction by Xavier at the start of the book impacts on eleven lives Sometimes it was a little confusing keeping all the characters straight but I think Watson did a very good job at keeping the Xavier story front and centre This was a very clever novel which left me holding my breath and with goosebumps all over as I read the final lines Sex Death and Minuets running through the book which is how a seemingly innocuous action or inaction by Xavier at the start of the book impacts on eleven lives Sometimes it was a little confusing keeping all the characters straight but I think Watson did a very good job at keeping the Xavier story front and centre This was a very clever novel which left me holding my breath and with goosebumps all over as I Angel Evolution read the final lines

review ☆ Eleven author Mark Watson The light by a one of a kind cleaning lady and forced to confront his own biggest regr. 45 starsAfter reading Hotel Alpha I was keen to try by Watson I really liked his ideas and style of writing using multiple narrators but showing a great grasp of juggling several lives and storylines and intertwining themThis is keenly observed here with the actions of one person affecting the next then the next and so on with a chain of eleven people and their lives becoming entwined in small ways It all begins with a radio DJ Australian Xavier Ireland a name he s taken on who listens to the ramblings musings and insomniac dreams of London by night and returns home to his dirty and lonely flat each day One day he makes a choice to help or not to help which starts off a chain of incidents that we watch moving through our characters in unexpected ways Pushed out of his Scrabble championship comfort zone to a speed dating event he is eventually forced to face up to the past he s left behind in Australia and to the effect we can each have on the lives of othersI loved the style of this though listening on audiobook made it tricky to remember who everyone was The connection from person to person was well thought through and I loved the variety of characters and how we were allowed to see into the future for many of them through the author s voice stepping in Xavier is our main character and I found him very sympathetic More so when the truth about his past comes out I was driving at the time and had my hands over my mouth listening in shock It all made senseThere are some wonderful characters here which were brought out by the fantastic CD narrator Xavier s colleague at the radio station with a stutter Xavier s neighbours in his building the cleaner he hires Watson s take on the London life of the typical person hits home they do feel like real peopleWatching the dominoes fall seeing one person s decisions affect another s it did remind me that yes in life this is exactly what happens my choices affects than just me It has a good point to makeThe Scrabble scenes are really funny and also uite informative and I just adored Xavier s amazing cleaner The ending no spoilers don t worry I could see the reasons why Watson wrote it that way and it did fit But I couldn t help wishing it was the ending I had in my headI d recommend this highly it reminded me of Tales of the City and being closer to home in England was all the poignant I ve decided I m definitely a fan of Mark Watson s writingThis would make a good reading group choice as well as one for fans of multiple storylines that fit together and everyday stories about human lives loves and connections
