My friend, as the natural-born reporter she is, writes in her email that she noticed this tagline at an 07:50am train, at Holborn station, London.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the tagline that an author has chosen to advertise her book with. The book's titled Temple, which is also the name of the leading female character.
But what a shocking statement for a genuine late-to-sleep-early-to-rise... Londonfreniac. Her email goes on as following:
- Who would like to read one rather than live an adventure?
- Which audience is this advertisement - which is repulsively conservative, to my opinion- addressing?
- And what exactly does it suggest? That we live in a society that respects you more when you simply exist, lifeless as an object, than when you actually "seize the day"?
She definitely made my day.
