BBAW – Pimp a Book! The Tube Riders by Chris Ward September 13, 2012

Today for BBAW we’re to pimp a book that we think needs more recognition! My pick is Chris Ward’s Tube Riders. (See my review here. You can also see my interview with Chris here.) It’s a fabulous book about daredevils that basically use clawboards to hitch a ride on the side of subway trains and go along for the ride. It’s a little more complicated then that but you can read more about it here on Chris’ blog. The book is set in a dystopian futuristic setting and the Tube Riders end up in a heap of trouble.

Captivatbed Reading says,  “(it’s) such an action-packed adventure from the very beginning.”

Daulton Books says, “It’s an easy read, and, the price is amazing, especially since it’s a nice long book that will keep you entertained for a long time.”

The Future Fire says, “If you enjoy solid British sci-fi, or like me, are a sucker for terribly bleak yet well written dystopia, the book is a joy to read and something that really does stay with you long after you turn the final page.”

The consensus is in. This book is a winner! Don’t let this one pass you by!

The way they ride the subway trains reminds me of Extras by Scott Westerfeld. I’ll have to look into this book!
