253 by Geoff Ryman is a novel about 252 passengers and 1 driver during a journey from Embankment to Elephant and Castle. Their personal histories, thoughts about themselves and other passengers are described on one page for each character. Perfect to dip into when on the tube or the bus. 

Anyone have any other ideas?
