The old film about the strangers that meet at the train station and fall in love is re-imagined here as a modern love story.
Two people travelling in opposite directions but who meet and fall in love (lust?) at St Pancras station whilst waiting for their delayed trains. They talk and agree to some rules about how they will communicate during the following year. But they break these rules as their communications become more intense. And of course, they have agreed to meet again at the end of the year, in the same place, to continue their journeys together this time.
But life is never as straight forward as that, which is why I liked this story. Most traditional stories would have had them meet and all would be well. But as we know, real life is not as romantic as this.
The writing style was pleasant and the story was well crafted. It was enjoyable if not high literature.
