Publisher's Summary

A Week in December is Sebastian Faulks's first wholly contemporary novel. Set in London, it's a brilliant social satire, structured like a thriller, that takes place over the course of a single week at the end of 2007. It brings together an intriguing cast of characters, each apparently in his or her own world but - as gradually becomes clear - ultimately intricately related. The anti-hero, John Veals, is a shadily successful and boundlessly ambitious Dickensian figure who is trading billions, and other characters include a teenage Muslim fanatic, a Polish footballer, a female tube driver, a literary critic, a care worker, and a chutney tycoon. As the story builds to its climax, Faulks pulls together powerful ideas about family, money, religion, and the way we live now.

Interesting interconnected characters

Enjoyed the well created characters and their thoughts and feelings. And not the least how they cross each others lives, very clever.
Noticed too late that I had gotten the abridged version and saw the original wasn't available. Can't stop wondering how that would have been though and what they have cut out.
