Night Train to Lisbon follows Raimund Gregorius, a 57-year-old Classics scholar, on a journey that takes him across Europe. Abandoning his job and his life and travelling with a dusty old book as his talisman, he heads for Lisbon in search of clues to the life of the book's Portuguese author, Amadeu de Prado. As he gets swept up in his quest, he finds that the journey is also one of self-discovery, as he reencounters all the decisions he has made - and not made - in his life, and faces the roads not travelled.

Review:

"* 'One reads this book almost breathlessly, can hardly put it down... A handbook for the soul, mind and heart.' Die Zeit (Germany) 'If you liked Carlos Ruiz Zafon's The Shadow of the Wind, you'll love international bestseller, Night Train to Lisbon.' Image 'Night Train to Lisbon is a novel of ideas that reads like a thriller: an unsentimental journey that seems to transcend time and space. Every character, every scene, is evoked with an incomparable economy and a tragic nobility redolent of the mysterious hero, whom we only ever encounter through the eyes of others... Pascal Mercier now takes his rightful place among our finest European novelists.' Daniel Johnson, Sunday Telegraph 'A meditative novel that builds uncanny power...Night Train to Lisbon maintains a remarkable immediacy that makes for a rare reading pleasure.' Joseph Olshan, San Francisco Chronicle"

Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. 'If you liked Carlos Ruiz Zafon's The Shadow of the Wind, you'll love international bestseller, Night Train to Lisbon.' ImageOne day mild-mannered, middle aged teacher Raimund Gregorius suddenly quits his ordinary life and, for no reason apparent to his colleagues of his students, sets off on a journey across Europe. Haunted by a mysterious old book that seems, somehow, to speak to him personally, he embarks in search of clues to the life of its enigmatic Portuguese author, Amadeu de Prado. Gradually he uncovers the life of an extraordinary man: a child prodigy, a doctor, a philosopher and a rebel. And as Gregorius learns about Prado, he also begins a process of self-discovery, looking back at his own life and the choices he has made, wondering about the man he might have been. Hurtling through the dark, Night Train to Lisbon is a profound tale, wonderfully told, propelled by the mystery at its heart.'A a novel of ideas that reads like a triller: an unsentimental journey that seems to transcend time and space. Every character, every scene, is evoked with an incomparable economy and a tragic nobility redolent of the mysterious hero . . . Pascal Mercier now takes his rightful place among our finest European novelists.' Sunday Telegraph'A meditative novel that builds an uncanny power . . . Night Train to Lisbon maintains a remarkable immediacy that makes for a rare reading pleasure.' San Francisco Chronicle Pascal Mercier's haunting novel of the paths not taken, the choices not made, the lives not lived, Night Train to Lisbon has captured the hearts of readers across Europe, with over two million copies sold worldwide. 'A treat for the mind. One of the best books I have read in a long time.' Isabel Allende Shipping may be from multiple locations in the US or from the UK, depending on stock availability.
