    The World Was All Before Them is a book that takes a little perseverance, but is well worth it in the end The book opens somewhat surreally in the midst of an accident on the motorway and initially I wasn t sure what was going on As I settled into the narrative, which is told from the third person views of lover Philip and Sue, I was taken over by the story and its unique style The World Was All Before Them is told almost in a stream of consciousness, the way your thoughts run from one thing The World Was All Before Them is a book that takes a little perseverance, but is well worth it in the end The book opens somewhat surreally in the midst of an accident on the motorway and initially I wasn t sure what was going on As I settled into the narrative, which is told from the third person views of lover Philip and Sue, I was taken over by the story and its unique style The World Was All Before Them is told almost in a stream of consciousness, the way your thoughts run from one thing to another and another It took a bit of concentration between the jumps from Philip to Sue and back again, but it was absolutely amazing the amount of things I learned about the couple in the short time frames of each section.Philip is a doctor, undertaking a locum in a GP surgery for a year He s somewhat insecure about his knowledge or lack of it and worries about his patients Over the course of the year of the novel, we meet two patients who highlight Philip s strengths and weaknesses Sue commutes to her job in an art gallery in London each day After a big name artist pulls out of an exhibition, Sue and her colleague try to produce an exhibition themselves In between all of this, there s the minutiae of everyday lives and the big decisions that came in between.I think The World Was All Before Them is a strong, individual book Reynolds isn t afraid to try something different in the narrative, jumping from Philip to Sue and back again quickly It ended up working for me by not speed reading and just going with the flow Perhaps that s a lesson that applies to other parts of life I felt like I became part of Sue and Philip s lives, like a fly on the wall I found Philip s insecurity to be rather interesting you don t really expect doctors to be this way and the way he bottled it up alone made me want to comfort him I think Philip helps to show that it s okay not to know everything.In comparison, Sue seemed muchsecure within herself, demonstrated by her massive undertaking of a whole exhibition She has a sensitive side that balanced Philip out nicely, but seemedaloof to me as a reader I couldn t get quite as deeply into her head as Philip s.I would recommend this book if you re looking for something a little bit different that pushes the envelope of your experiences as a reader The fold out cover is also gorgeous and well worth a look Thank you to Bloomsbury Sydney for the copy of this book.http samstillreading.wordpress.com

    There are rare paragraphs in this novel that show the real potential of this author There seems to be a yawning cleft between these lyrical passages and the narrative of the chattering minds of the main characters, infinite in detail, really irritating and tedious.It s a novel in which little happens, a diary of the myriad trivia of the minds of two people, both somewhat neurotic.
