I have to agree with the 5 star reviewers. This is a good tale of 3 characters who seem to have lost their way in life, all trying to get home for Christmas on the Last Train. Whilst many people have made a comparison with Dickens Christmas Carol, there are a few twists and turns in this book, that are not expected. I had no problem, as others had with identifying with the characters, and was disappointed when the story finished. It will not take long to read, but is one of those books, you feel infinitely better for having read.
