"A micro-mezze of human emotion, "Eleven" thrusts snippets of love, trust, and disappointment into the mix and proves that the knock-on effects of petty office politics can be disastrous." --"Gay Times"
"Llewellyn skillfully and poignantly reveals the complications and evasions of the characters' relationships . . . "Eleven" is a compulsive read, and I devoured it in one sitting, unable to put it down . . . It's easy to imagine this becoming a cult book for the disillusioned younger generation . . . who will recognize many of the characters and situations." --Ray French, author, "All This Is Mine" and "The Red Jag"

'Eleven' is an often very funny book; I laughed out loud on a number of occasions; but it quickly develops (and by quick I mean QUICK) into something much darker and more unsettling. None of the reviews I've read so far seem to mention the apparent existentialist and absurdist subtexts that are at work (at one point Martin emails God asking him "Why", only to have his email returned saying 'Address Unknown') in this book. It starts off light and frothy, brimming with office gossip, but by the end of the novel souls have been laid bare. This is not just a biting comedy about office politics, and it's not just a cash in. Without giving too much away, the ending explodes the claustrophobic events of the novel out into the bigger picture, so that the reader is invited to consider that day as a whole. As Martin himself says at one point in the novel, "This is everything."
I've never even been to Bristol ok?.
