Publisher Description

A wise, affecting novel from the beloved, award-winning author of Dickens and Prince, High Fidelity, and About A Boy.

New York Times-bestselling author Nick Hornby mines the hearts and psyches of four lost souls who connect just when they've reached the end of the line. A Long Way Down is now a major motion picture from Magnolia Pictures starring Pierce Brosnan, Toni Collette, Aaron Paul, and Imogen Poots.

Meet Martin, JJ, Jess, and Maureen. Four people who come together on New Year's Eve: a former TV talk show host, a musician, a teenage girl, and a mother. Three are British, one is American. They encounter one another on the roof of Topper's House, a London destination famous as the last stop for those ready to end their lives.

In four distinct and riveting first-person voices, Nick Hornby tells a story of four individuals confronting the limits of choice, circumstance, and their own mortality. This is a tale of connections made and missed, punishing regrets, and the grace of second chances.

Intense, hilarious, provocative, and moving, A Long Way Down is a novel about suicide that is, surprisingly, full of life.

A Breeze To Read, Despite Heavy Topics

One of my favorite Nick Hornby books. The subject matter is heavy, and it really makes you think about how life can (or cant) continue if your world seems to be crumbling around you. Despite this, it is lighthearted, will make you laugh, and it overall, a feel good read. If you are looking for a book that makes you think, laugh, and is quick to read, I would highly recommend this book!
