Commuting: An Underground World by Stephen Down
🔊Pre-requisite for reading this book: Must be read whilst commuting!
Let me start by extending my warmest regards to the author for sending me a copy of his book in exchange for my review, though I regret that I did not follow the pre-requisites for reading this book. *hides behind a bookshelf*
Commuting: An Underground World was written by Stephen Down and was published in 2019. It is, to use the book’s own words.. “new reading material to provide some light entertainment for your commute to work.”
Commuting hosts a series of mostly comedic anecdotes about the wonders and perils of the London underground. If you’re a frequent commuter like the author, then you’ll probably relate to most of this book, I certainly did, though I don’t commute much these days. The joys of walking..
This book is undeniably funny. It’s packed with quippy humour and sarcastic witticisms and definitely succeeded in getting a few laughs out of me. There were also more serious moments in the book that lingered in my thoughts and made me consider my own complicity in certain situations i.e. the conundrum of giving up one’s seat.
I would definitely recommend Commuting: An Underground World if you’re looking for light entertainment and a quick read that is deeply relatable and very funny!
