Lovereading view...

Humour and pathos abound in this novel by Matt Beaumont. Each character tells their story in the first person, switching our perspective as the story moves along. This makes for quite a fast pace and also an interesting look at how we each view each other and how different our perception of situations and people can be. There is a great cross section of characters who are all interlinked and what starts off as a quite comedic novel turns in to a fascinating comment on relationships and society today with quite a dark edge.

If you like Matt Beaumont you might also like to read books by David Nicholls, Colin Bateman and John O'farrell.

Synopsis

Small World by Matt Beaumont

Friends, family, workmates. The woman you see at the bus stop every morning; the man who reaches for the last newspaper just before you get to it. Everyone you meet, and some you nearly meet, will have an impact on the way your day goes.

Small World is the story of a group of men and women, living and working in a city, who are connected through love, work, friendship, or simply by virtue of proximity. We connect with the hearts and minds of characters including an all-coping housewife, a stressed out working mother, a put-upon nanny, a long-suffering journalist, an Indian waiter who dreams of stardom, a grieving shop assistant, a stand-up comic and a psychotic policeman – all of whom speak directly to us about their innermost thoughts, fears and desires in a series of interwoven first-person narratives.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
