Su un altissimo grattacielo londinese, la notte di San Silvestro, mentre imperversano botti e festeggiamenti, un presentatore televisivo in crisi matrimoniale e professionale decide di suicidarsi buttandosi giù dall'ultimo piano. Ma al momento decisivo si accorge di non essere da solo su quel grattacielo: c'è vicino a lui una donna disperata, senza lavoro e senza marito, alle prese con un figlio autistico. Anche lei sta per buttarsi giù. Ma spuntano anche una ragazzina di 15 anni, sedotta e poi lasciata da un ragazzo, e un musicista americano fallito, ora cameriere in una pizzeria, pure lui abbandonato dalla ragazza. Anche loro vogliono suicidarsi.
Forse sono un po' troppi...

(A-) 80% | Very Good Notes: Despite its grim premise, it's frequently laugh-out-loud. Though I'm not a fan of the shifting first-person perspective.
jump already! and take the book with you.
Oh popular authors, I'm always so nervous about you. I mean, on the one hand I always figure that if so many people like you, there must be something good about you. But then, so many people like harlequin romances, and Dane Cook, and Big Brother. People are idiots. Even when they aren't, they can't Leggi tutto
I’ve been down, I don’t wanna say depressed. I don’t wanna use the term lightly. There are lots of people with real problems, people diagnosed with clinical depression but I’m not one of those. I’m just a university student with an unpredictable proclivity for melancholia. Sure, I’m a little bit mel Leggi tutto
I didn't get into Hornby for the same reason as everyone else, (they like Jon Cusak in High Fidelity). A Long Way Down was recommended to me by a friend and I needed a light read for the summer so I picked it up. I have never actually laughed out loud while reading a book until I read this one. Runni Leggi tutto
This book, as many others, is not for everyone. I can completely understand that many people find those characters annoying and the whole story pointless. Nevertheless I am of the opinion that this book can give you hope. Of course this seems to be a silly thing to say considering the topic and all
[warning: minor spoilers + suicide mentions + statutory rape] edit: You know what, this book doesn't deserve my mercy. I really hated it and it still makes me angry whenever I think about it. I'm going to lower my rating to 1 star. I had to read this book for college, and when I read the synopsis, I t Leggi tutto
This book almost deserved one star. The only thing that saved it from being a complete and utter waste of my time was that Nick Horny writes the occasional very witty passage, and there were two (count them, two) observations that I found actually interesting. So that totals about five pages that I
Boy, is there anyone who has offered up more stinkers than Nick flippin' Hornby. And, was he so great to begin with? Even his better, earlier works were marginally good. Nothing life changing. Which is kinda the point of why he's so awful: he is intentionally trying to be life changing in every book Leggi tutto
I'm a Nick Hornby fan. And it's more than just enjoying his writing; I have a warm and fuzzy affection for him. So even when one of his books fails to utterly delight and transport me ( How to Be Good , for example), I'm still on his side. Michiko Kakutani clearly has no such affection for Hornby.
