The Reader on the 6.27 by Jean-Paul Didierlaurent follows the journey of Guylain Vignolles, a lonely 36-year-old man. Guylain has a miserable job as an engineer at a book pulping plant that leaves him exhausted and unfulfilled at the end of each long work day. His only pleasure is reading out loud on his morning train commute, a routine that earns him a few adoring fans and briefly staves off his despair. However, when he finds the lost journal of a poetic young woman named Julie, stuck in a similarly unfulfilling job, his outlook on life begins to change and he begins a difficult journey towards true human connection. The Reader on the 6.27 is a humorous, romantic tale that explores themes such as loneliness, literature, friendship, violence, capitalism, and morality.
