Reviews

"One New Year's Eve, four people with very different reasons but a common purpose find their way to the top of a fifteen-story building in London. None of them has calculated that, on a date humans favor for acts of significance, in a place known as a local suicide-jumpers' favorite, they might encounter company. A Long Way Down is the story of what happens next, and of what doesn't." --The New York Times Book Review

"It's like The Breakfast Club rewritten by Beckett.... What makes the book work is Hornby's refusal to give an inch to sentimentality or cheap inspirational guff." --Time

"A dramatic, sad and thoroughly side-splitting novel." --Newsday

"Wildly enjoyable. A daring high-wire act. It's serious literature...no, it's popular entertainment...no, it's both!" --Seattle Times

"Time's stealthy tread, its unseen ability to heal some wounds while inflicting others, gives Nick Hornby's darkly comic new novel, A Long Way Down, its genuine power." --San Francisco Chronicle
