Waiting On Wednesday: Underground Time by Delphine de Vigan

This my first edition of “Waiting On Wednesday”! I recently discovered that Breaking the Spine features an event where bloggers say which books they are eagerly anticipating / checking out over and over again Amazon and Indigo websites. At least that’s what I do.

I’m really excited for Underground Time by Delphine de Vigan! There’s a touch of romance, a touch of supernatural(?) and whole lot of Paris in this story so it’s already sounds pretty good. Paperback release date is November 22 but it won’t be out on Kindle until December 5. Here’s the synopsis:

Everyday Mathilde takes the Metro, then the commuter train to the office of a large multi-national where she works in the marketing department. Every day, the same routine, the same trains. But something happened a while ago – she dared to voice a different opinion from her moody boss, Jacques. Bit by bit she finds herself frozen out of everything, with no work to do.
Thibault is a paramedic. Every day he drives to the addresses he receives from his controller. The city spares him no grief: traffic jams, elusive parking spaces, delivery trucks blocking his route. He is well aware that he may be the only human being many of the people he visits will see for the entire day and is well acquainted with the symptomatic illnesses, the major disasters, the hustle and bustle and, of course, the immense, pervading loneliness of the city.
Before one day in May, Mathilde and Thibault had never met. They were just two anonymous figures in a crowd, pushed and shoved and pressured continuously by the loveless, urban world.

  1. That looks really interesting. I am just getting around to checking some of the post for this week. Welcome to WOW. I started a few weeks ago and am really enjoying seeing what others are waiting for and letting people know what I like to read and have on pre-order

    • Hi Jo! Thanks for the welcome. I had just stumbled on this book a day before I heard of WOW so it was perfect timing. Very cool idea. I’ve already learned about a whole bunch of new books this week.
