‘Lives Interrupted’ is the story of a group of friends and loosely related people whose lives are forever changed by a bomb blast on the London Underground. It’s an extremely well written book with complex and well drawn characters with very real relationships, reactions, hopes and fears. We can all relate to these people, and reading this book brings home just how traumatic terrorist events can be for those affected. Knowing that there would be a bomb, I read the book almost waiting for it, but due to the skill of the author, it still came as a shock. One moment all was normal, the next, everything had changed. Despite the traumatic subject matter in the latter part of the book, this was a very enjoyable read.
The author also has a great story in the Awesome Indies short story collection Awesome Allshorts. You can get that book free if you join the Awesome Indies Reader’s Club.
A highly recommended read. 5 stars.
