    Somewhere in Northwest London stands Caldwell housing estate, relic of 70s urban planning. Five identical blocks, deliberately named: Hobbes, Smith, Bentham, Locke, and Russell. If you grew up there, the plan was to get out and get on, to something bigger, better. Thirty years later ex-Caldwell kids Leah, Natalie, Felix, and Nathan have all made it out, with varying degrees of succes - whatever that means....

    BowedBookshelf says: "I believe this book is best listened to than read"
    "Captures life in a South Asian London neighborhood"

    Story
    What did you love best about NW?

    Not a false note in the writing - on the contrary it is as life-giving as Tolstoy.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of NW?

    When one of the female protagonists tries out the idea of a menage a trois with two South Asian boys.


    Have you listened to any of Karen Bryson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I enjoyed the reader's performance - the Audible readers are by and large wonderful.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laugh maybe, cry no.
