Starter for Ten

by David Nicholls

Sory of the first year at University of aparticularly annoying character. Poor story -if there indeed was one. Richard and JUdy had recommended it, it was supposd to be funny. I just found it tedious, and most of the characters dreadful. I'm glad I don't know them!!

Funny in parts. The characters are quite easy and stereotypical & I thought the end was rather a let down too, so much angst & woe...and then in a few pages he's realised the error of his ways! Film might be better?

I also enjoyed this book, but I didn't find it funny. I thought it was very moving and felt sorry for the character trying to find his feet at university despite being out of his depth. I was willing for it all to turn out right for him.
Funny book! The characters are dreadful, but weren't some of the characters you met at college?!
