Passengers boarding the 10.35 train from Manchester Piccadilly to London Euston are bound for work, assignations, reunions, holidays or new starts, with no idea that their journey is about to be brutally curtailed. Holly has just landed her dream job, which should make life a lot easier than it has been, and Jeff is heading for his first ever work interview after months of unemployment. They end up sitting next to each other. Onboard customer service assistant Naz dreams of better things as he collects rubbish from the passengers. And among the others travelling are Nick with his young family who are driving him crazy; pensioner Meg and her partner setting off on a walking holiday and facing an uncertain future; Caroline, run ragged by the competing demands of her stroppy teenage children and her demented mother; and Rhona, unhappy at work and desperate to get home to her small daughter. And in the middle of the carriage sits Saheel, carrying a deadly rucksack ...… (mais)

A very touching book that captures the horror of a terrorist act and makes it feel real

There are no words needed to describe and explain how I had felt whilst reading this amazingly profound book page by page and chapter by chapter. Five stars isn't nearly enough to rate this wonderful work of literature. I've had so many mixed feelings and mixed thoughts about what was going on within the book, about how all the fictional characters were immensely connected to each other by the tragedy that has befallen into their lives, and I honestly couldn't wait to learn more about each and everyone of them and even about the one who has caused the tragedy and has forever changed their lives. It was a truly profound read and comes highly recommendable to everyone who wishes to learn the true value of life. ( )

I think one of the reasons for this book hitting me so hard when I read it is because of the current situation in the world with all the suicide bombers in the recent years. The thought that you are no longer safe that any time or anywhere a suicide bomber may be is a reality nowadays. And, this book really shows both sides to it. First, we have the ordinary citizens on the train with different reasons for being there, be it traveling for a job interview or a wedding, then among them is a man who for some reason has decided to become a martyr for a cause, and by taking as many lives with him as possible. And, at home, a little sister is checking her big brother's computer and finding something she never thought that she would find...

This book is heartbreaking and so chilling to read. The characters on the train are introduced in the beginning of the book one by one. And, by letting the reader get to know them, making the characters come alive and then turning the world upside down has Cath Staincliffe written a powerful book that from the beginning until the end is so gripping that I could hardly put it down. For me were the chapters with Saheel's little sister a very powerful inclusion in this book. Her side of the story, her point-of-view is just as tragic as the ones on the train. Saheel's action has such a big impact not only on the people on the train but also his own family. They will never be the same again.

It's terrifying how one person's actions can affect so many lives, and this book shows just how in an instant, all your hopes and dreams can be destroyed, but it also shows how people can after facing a terrible situation gathered together and not let evil triumph.

I want to thank Little, Brown Book Group UK for providing me with a free copy through NetGalley for an honest review!

The 10.35 from Manchester to Euston is a busy train and all of humanity is on board. Jeff is shy young man travelling for a life-changing job interview, Holly is a young woman flush with the excitement of starting her career, Nick and Lisa are travelling to London for a wedding with their two young children in tow, Rhona is worried about her daughter, so is Caroline. Among the passengers in the coach is Saheel, clever student but recently radicalised, his behaviour arouses suspicion.

This should have been the sort of book that I dislike, sensationalist and overwrought, but it's not. Staincliffe writes the book in two sections, the build-up and the aftermath, and both are excellent in their different ways. The characters and their interactions are carefully drawn, yes some are cliches but others are not and the microcosm of British society that can be seen every day on a train is realised. Even Saheel's family is carefully considered, his precocious younger sister, his destroyed mother. I particularly liked the way that the book didn't necessarily end on a happy note, it was just about how life has to move forward after tragedy and that restraint was appreciated. ( )

Cath Staincliffe takes us onto an ordinary train from Manchester to Euston and introduces us to a selection of passengers, warts and all. There are 8 passengers whom we get to know well. They all have problems but these pale into insignificance against the fact that Saheel, a British born Muslim turned jihadist is carrying a bomb that he intends to let off in Euston station. We, the readers, realise that the train is in danger but only one of the passengers realises that something is wrong.

The second half of the book deals with the aftermath of the "incident".
If you think I'm being a bit miserly with details it is because I want you to experience the book for yourself.
Let me tell you though that really did get to the stage that I didn't want to put it down. I wanted to know how things panned out. It will make you think too. ( )
