Thirteen - Sebastian Beaumont

Thirteen is a very very bizarre book, that I still can’t make up my mind whether I would recommend to anyone or not.  I”d probably read it again myself, but probably just so that I can be sure that I’ve really taken it all in.

It starts off with the story of a guy who loses everything and for very odd reasons, becomes a cabbie in Brighton.  He does permanent night shifts and ends up ‘zoning’ and seeing people/things that aren’t necessarily there and experiencing stuff that’s inexplicable – all connected to a house at 13, Wish Road which isn’t always there.

I am not going to pretend that I understood absolutely everything that happened but there were some good psychological messages in amongst all the weirdness.  It ended up going in a completely unpredictable direction, which personally I like as I don’t always like everything to be obvious from the outset.

If you are a fan of ‘odd’ books, then give it a go – you wont be disappointed.
