Item description for 13: 55 Eastern Standard Time by Alexander Nick...

Alice looks at the phone and then glances at the clock. 13:55 EST makes - she counts on her fingers - about 6pm in Berlin. He'll be on his way home. Alice settles into the armchair and dials the number... If Alice hadn't bumped into Will then she would probably never have phoned that afternoon. And if Alice hadn't called, then Michael, poor Michael, might still be alive today. In a digital age of world-spanning communications and easy travel these stories explore how interconnected and yet fragmented our lives have become, and how - no matter where we live or what we do, no matter how different our lifestyles - the universal desires for love and happiness draw us ever onward.

Reviews - What do customers think about 13: 55 Eastern Standard Time?

Consequenes  Jun 8, 2007
13:55 Eastern Standard Time, is quite different from Nick Alexander's previous series of novels centred on the loveable character Mark. 13:33 EST could be read as a collection of shorts, but in fact it is much more than that. It all starts with OK Sticker, when a disgruntled factory worker in China, more concerned about her private life, knowingly passes a batch of defective iPods as OK. In the second story of the title, 13:55 EST, we move to the USA and meet some new characters as we follow the course of the defective iPods, and begin to pick up on the consequences of the young Chinese worker's actions. And so the subsequent stories follow in similar vein, as we see how seemingly simple, sometimes deliberate, often innocent actions have far reaching consequences, at times good, but at others bad or even tragic, and how individuals can affect the lives of others who may or may not be in any way connected, often continents apart.
As geographically the successive stories take us around the world, the range of characters is wide, from poorly paid and struggling workers in China to successful and wealthy near celebrities in the West, and an array of individuals and families or couples in between, and unsurprisingly with Nick Alexander, straight and gay characters. Some are likeable, even endearing, others we quite happily observe as they receive their comeuppance. Some characters we encounter just the once, others we return to again and again.
The book does repay careful reading in order not to miss the connections between (and so the consequences of) the different events and actions; and perhaps to detect the parts that maybe unrelated the rest. A most enjoyable and tantalising read; a worthy successor to God Thing, Bad Thing, and something to keep us happy until Nick Alexander gets around to giving us further adventures of our old hero Mark.
