Product Description

Product Description

I have been commuting from East Anglia to London for more than twenty years and this is the first volume of twenty humorous observations on train travel and railroad travellers.

These funny sketches are borne mainly out of frustration with railway travel but also a fascination with seemingly limitless English eccentricity.

Railway officialdom, passengers and unexpected situations are described in satirical fashion including ludicrous questions asked at the ticket office, the commuter who insisted on setting up a mobile office environment and the eating habits of a bearded explorer.

Some of these stories were first published online in Cambridge News.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comic tales from commuter hell 13 Oct. 2013
By Appleby
Format:Kindle Edition
Anyone who has endured the indignities of a packed commuter train will recognise the situations described with comic flair in this great little book, and even more fun when you know some of the places described, such as Cambridge station's nightmarish parking system. It was just the right length to keep me entertained between King's Cross and Cambridge. Just try not to disturb your fellow passengers when it has you laughing out loud!

5.0 out of 5 stars The observations of a true voyuer 12 Oct. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Observation is the key to perception and perception is reality but only in the mind of the observer!
This book is not about journeys but about fellow travellers on the journey of life. There is nothing more satisfying than people watching and the author is very satisfied indeed.
A superb read, preferably on ones Kindle, on the train.
This book I would recommend and shall be in anticipation for vol 2
