The best books to read on your commute – readers recommend – The Guardian

For me, a compelling, page turning read is the best book for any journey.

I read Jake Arnott’s ‘He Kills Coppers’ from start to finish on a coach journey from Manchester to London.

Writers such as Northern Irishman- Brian Moore, Marge Piercy, Hans Fallada, and more recently -Anna Funder, are other writers I would recommend for their page turning qualities.

I’ve taken books I’ve very much wanted to read on trips, but just haven’t been able to concentrate beyond a few pages.
