Call Time: The funny and hugely original debut novel from Channel 4 F1 presenter Steve Jones
About this deal
There is no charge for up to 2 children under 5 years of age when travelling with another responsible full fare adult passenger providing they do not occupy a seat to the exclusion of a fare paying passenger or are seated in a buggy in an appropriate space on the vehicle. We understand that circumstances and situations can change suddenly, meaning you may not be able to make it in time for your bus. If you have registered with us in a certain part of Lincolnshire but are visiting aother, you can still use your membership number but we will just change your pick up and drop off locations accordingly.
If however the bus is full by the time it gets to your village, it means you will not be able to travel.We ask that all our passengers arrive at their pick up point a few minutes before their booking time. It definitely worked for this book though and the story wouldn't have worked if it had been done differently. Simply give your membership number and journey details to your booking agent and they’ll do the rest.
The intrigue of this story was a major grab for me - it kept me thinking what would I do in those circumstances? In certain locations there are no designated bus stops and in those locations the booking office will book journeys from a pick up point that is considered safe and practical.And the others characters are likeable enough at the beginning to make up for it, I loved Scotty (in all timelines)! The wheelchair area is suitable for a standard reference wheelchair which has a maximum width of 700mm, a length of 1200mm, sitting height 1350mm, footrest 150mm from the floor. I loved Bob’s friendship with Scotty and the way he slowly became a better person as the story progressed, plus the 80s nostalgia!
