5.0 out of 5 stars Man is born in freedom but everywhere in trains, 20 Feb. 2014
This review is from: Martin Harbottle's Appreciation of Time (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Martin Harbottle's appreciation of time feels like it is always about to descend into a rehash of the rise and fall of Reginald Perrin but never falls into that trap. Instead we watch Daniel being dehumanised by the daily grind of his work and his commute and apparently oblivious to the fact that both are destroying the things he should really care about. This is a book to strike a chord with everyone who has ever been a commuter. It exaggerates how bad trains are, which is perhaps not surprising as otherwise the premise of the book would have disappeared, but for everyone who has ever felt that they're going through the motions at home just to commute and work every day then this will sound familiar.
