Iona Iverson's Rules for Commuting, by Clare Pooley
40/60 | Started 08.17.23 • Finished 08.29.23 | 3 stars
I loved the premise of this book. People commuting together on a train who somehow get connected and start to invest in and have an affect on each other's lives. Problems solved, joys shared, and comforts given.
And with those words she felt their disparate worlds connect for a few seconds, and the comforting sensation of being truly seen.
While I enjoyed the characters for the most part - a variety of them and a variety of challenges to suit them - I struggled with the main character's flamboyant sexual identity. For that reason, I unfortunately would not recommend this book, though there are a number of redeeming qualities, as noted. This could have been a really great book had the author not been pushing an agenda.
