Nemesis Train

Nemesis Train

$17.99

Paperback
Tragedy often happens, unnoticed and unexplained, within seemingly-ordinary city life. Add a day of frustrations to a lifetime of guilt—and so much might be lost in one despairing act.

But there are also people like Jed Hill, a university student with a burden to “change the world,” although not sure what that might mean. Yet his ill-conceived attempts at “making a difference” move toward an unexpected encounter that will change more than one life. Nemesis Train is a web of characters and events, in which ordinary moments can lead to dramatically different possibilities.

Keeps you guessing till the end
5 stars By Karen, Dec 10 2008
A great read!  Certainly one that I will want to come back to.  The intricate characters are frustratingly elusive and you just have to keep reading to find out how they all fit together.  It's one of the few books I've read that really did have a surprise ending.  I had no idea!  It was wonderful to have an 'Ah ha!' moment.  Well worth buying.

A puzzle, but the pieces fit
5 stars By Melody, Oct 23 2008
Nemesis Train could simply have been a notebook filled with the journey of the author's ponderings and explorations of various people's lives. But what makes it a compelling read is the fact that the reader becomes a participant as well.

This is not a book in the old-fashioned sense of the word, as chapters often appear unstructured and the flow of the book will take most readers by surprise. However, readers will find themselves unwittingly drawn into a story that makes them want to find out more.

Nemesis Train provokes thought and, more often, encourages the reader to ask questions rather than provides any real answers. There is often an overarching sense of loss and loneliness present in the book, a sense that life may be a waste of time without any real meaning. However, there are also rare glimpses of wry humour and, through the character Jed Hill, the reader sees hope.

A book that makes a strong statement against war and the detrimental impact it has on war veterans and perhaps the world in general, it also offers grace and understanding to all those involved. 

And what makes Nemesis Train a rare treasure is the fact that the surprise ending not only helps everything fall into place for the reader, it makes you want to go back to the platform and board the train all over again with your newfound piece of puzzle.
