If you couldn t guess by the cover and the title, Eleven is a story set on 9 11, and is compiled as a series of e mails throughout the day Our protagonist is Martin Davies, a guy who is desperately stuck in a rut in his boring, pointless, corporate job, and who longs to be an author in control of his own life but doesn t know how to make it happen Like anyone who has ever been trapped in the mundane hell of an office job that they don t like, Martin takes out his frustrations and boredom in a series of e mails that he sends to his work colleagues and friends, and the constant replies that he receives back makes up this short and snappy novella.

An interesting concept that didn t reach to its full potential The narrator and a few of the other characters had great voice and personality to them they felt very real and authentic However, the plot just didn t reach up to the quality of these characters.
I like that it just felt like a general day at work and the nonchalance of office work but when you have a setting like 9 11, there is so much that could have been done.
I think the biggest issue was that it felt like it cut short too early It had a beginning and middle but didn t really have an ending It just felt like I finished a book 3 4 of the way into it.
Interesting format, funny, sad, of our times Short book, simple read, huge ideas.
