Book Description

"A familiar scarlet bud of rage unfurls in his solar plexus: it blossoms very fast, feeding on the dark mulch of a lifetime of insult, injury and ignorance. Thick tendrils of anger shoot up into his chest. With gathering momentum, the red bloom of psychosis bursts behind his eyes, re-igniting the maniacal blazing stare."

The tales that arise from this short bus journey show how interconnected and interdependent we all truly are: on a grey February morning, the enraged and the embittered board the 07.45, but despite the bleak portents of the day, the seeds of true friendship are sown, a spot of hasty social climbing unleashes a few gift horses, and instant karma reaps its just rewards.

Written as only one who uses public transport can, The 07.45 will have you chuckling with laughter in recognition of a few archetypal characters and inconsiderate old gits as their lives bounce off each other with surprising repercussions.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great little book 28 Oct. 2012
By Geomaid
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is a great short story written by a less well known author. It looks at a single bus trip through the eyes of several passengers and the bus driver. It was fast paced but not lacking any detail, as can happen with short stories. Be aware - you go through a range of emotions by the time the book finishes. I would recommend this book and look forward to Lynn's next one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely short story 3 Sept. 2012
By Mr
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a beautifully constructed and written short story that takes no more than a couple of hours to read but leaves you feeling good. It is full of very recognisable character types and situations that will be familiar to anyone who uses a bus regularly, especially in London. Highly recommended light reading.
