About the book:

In his eagerly awaited fourth novel, New York Times-bestselling writer Nick Hornby mines the hearts and psyches of 4 misplaced souls who join simply once they’ve reached the top of the road. Meet Martin, JJ, Jess, and Maureen. Four individuals who come collectively on New Year’s Eve: a former TV speak present host, a musician, a teenage lady, and a mom. Three are British, one is American. They encounter each other on the roof of Topper’s House, a London vacation spot well-known because the final cease for these prepared to finish their lives. In 4 distinct and riveting first-person voices, Nick Hornby tells a narrative of 4 people confronting the bounds of selection, circumstance, and their very own mortality. This is a story of connections made and missed, punishing regrets, and the grace of second probabilities. Intense, hilarious, provocative, and shifting, A Long Way Down is a novel about suicide that’s, surprisingly, vigorous. What’s your jumping-off level? Maureen Why is it the largest sin of all? All your life you’re instructed that you just’ll be going to this marvelous place if you move on. And the one factor you are able to do to get you there a bit faster is one thing that stops you getting there in any respect. Oh, I can see that it’s a sort of queue-jumping. But if somebody jumps the queue on the publish workplace, folks tut. Or generally they are saying “Excuse me, I used to be right here first.” They don’t say “You shall be consumed by hellfire for all eternity.” That could be a bit sturdy. Martin I’d spent the previous few months wanting up suicides on the Internet, simply out of curiosity. And practically each single time, the coroner says the identical factor: “He took his personal life whereas the steadiness of his thoughts was disturbed.” And then you definitely learn the story in regards to the poor bastard: His spouse was sleeping along with his greatest buddy, he’d misplaced his job, his daughter had been killed in a street accident some months earlier than . . . Hello, Mr. Coroner? I’m sorry, however there’s no disturbed psychological steadiness right here, my buddy. I’d say he obtained it good. Jess I used to be at a celebration downstairs. It was a shit occasion, stuffed with all these historical crusties sitting on the ground consuming cider and smoking enormous spliffs and listening to weirdo space-out reggae. At midnight, one in all them clapped sarcastically, and a few others laughed, and that was it-Happy New Year to you, too. You might have turned as much as that occasion because the happiest individual in London, and also you’d nonetheless have needed to leap off the roof by 5 previous twelve. And I wasn’t the happiest individual in London anyway. Obviously. JJ New Year’s Eve was an evening for sentimental losers. It was my very own silly fault. Of course there’d be a low-rent crowd up there. I ought to have picked a classier date-like March 28, when Virginia Woolf took her stroll into the river, or November 25 (Nick Drake). If anyone had been on the roof on both of these nights, the probabilities are they might have been like-minded souls, quite than hopeless f*ck-ups who had one way or the other persuaded themselves that the top of a calendar 12 months is in any means vital.
