    [Eleven Author Mark Watson] EBOOK FREE Review ê PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ò Mark Watson Free download Eleven Author Mark Watson A strange sort of a book Everyone is very sad and the story never really takes offIt's billed as a series of eleven events with conseuences but none of them are very exciting Maybe it's meant to be a kitchen sink comedy drama but even then it's all a bit slow and dullThe big reveal comes over two thirds of the way into the book and it's too late and too brutal for the story that went beforeI think the author had vario

Here s a chain of conseuences early last year I was at a work conference where one evening a group of us went to see Mark Watson in stand up His name was half familiar though I couldn t uite place it but I love good comedy so I decided to take a chance and go along anyway and I m glad I did because Watson was hilariousA few months later I was in an unfamiliar part of town and popped into the local library where I saw a novel by an author named Mark Watson A uick glance at the biography established that this was the same Mark Watson apparently he d written a couple of novels several years previously If his fiction was anything like as good as his stand up I thought then I wanted to read it so I borrowed the book and sure enough it was very goodAll this meant that when I heard earlier this year that Watson was going to publish a new novel his first in six years I was very interested in reading it And the reason I ve introduced this review as I have is that Eleven is all about chains of conseuence The central chain of events begins when Xavier Ireland the host of a late night radio phone in show witnesses a group of youths beating up another boy and tries to intervene but fails to stop them The novel continues to follow Xavier s life whilst alongside that Watson traces the seemingly random conseuences of that one incident the bullying angers the victim s mother who then writes a harsher review of a restaurant than she might have otherwise incensed by the review the restaurant s owner ends up firing one of his staff and so on We also discover what it was that led Chris Cotswold to leave Australia change his name to Xavier Ireland and take such an unsociable job and why everything comes back to the number elevenThe fabric of Eleven is shaped by the theme of chance moments and their ramifications It s there in Xavier s life as the nature of his job means that most of his connections with other people are transitory the callers to his show enter his life briefly then dart back out again and the odd hours Xavier keeps mean that his producerco presenter Murray is probably the person he sees most regularly The theme is there of course in the main conseuence chain but it s also there in Watson s many asides which reveal connections between minor characters or glimpses into their futures These asides act as a reminder that beyond the protagonist s life and in reality our own there are countless webs of other stories which remain unknown to usWatson also captures the raggedy nature of life in his plot progression as events don t necessarily tie up neatly what seems as though it s going to become the novel s key relationship actually fizzles out early on and an apparently throwaway gag one woman Xavier meets at a speed dating event introduces herself as a cleaner and before their three minutes are up he s made an appointment with her for that weekend grows into one of the main plot strandsThe character development in Eleven is also smartly done As I said earlier Xavier s relationships with other people tend to be fleeting when someone does start to become of a permanent fixture in his life Xavier doesn t know how to handle it but he learns to so in a halting fashion which is very believable More generally Eleven could be seen as the story of how Xavier slowly breaks out of the old pattern of his life but then comes the endingI really like the ending of Eleven It reminds me of Tom McCarthy s Remainder insofar as both books have endings which are no way to end a novel and yet are completely right for the story they tell But you ll have to read this novel to find out what I mean And perhaps as a conseuence you ll have found a new book to enjoy
