Publisher Description

A brilliant novel from the bestselling author of High FidelityAbout a Boy, and A Long Way Down.

Set in 1960's London, Funny Girl is a lively account of the adventures of the intrepid young Sophie Straw as she navigates her transformation from provincial ingénue to television starlet amid a constellation of delightful characters. Insightful and humorous, Nick Hornby's latest does what he does best: endears us to a cast of characters who are funny if flawed, and forces us to examine ourselves in the process.

Meh

The best I can say is that I finished the book. It was slow and not very interesting. Story line seemed to repeat and repeat with no depth.

Photo Missing...

In a novel with occasional photos of real persons, the photo I found myself wanting most to see was that of the one there could be no photo of. So real and endearing are the characters Horny has breathed life into, it seems there should be photos of them all.

I will just have to imagine one of Sophie.
