Review quote

Highly entertaining . . . a beguiling, thoroughly enjoyable read * Sunday Times * Simply unputdownable * Guardian * Warm, funny, touching . . . winningly perceptive about human relationships and changing social trends * Daily Telegraph * So simple, so easy to read and yet so sensitive and profound at the same time. This is a world that feels real and one you don't want to leave * Independent on Sunday * Like all Hornby's best work, it is both hugely enjoyable and deceptively artful * Spectator * Everything Hornby writes is addictively readable and clever, but with Funny Girl he has surpassed himself * Red * Hornby's sunniest novel * Metro * Nick Hornby is pretty much always poignant and hilarious * Huffington Post * Beautifully captures the thrill of youthful success and of discovering your own talent * Daily Telegraph * Funny Girl may be read as Hornby's latest defence of popular entertainment against high-culture elitism. Funny Girl makes his case for him eloquently and entertainingly ... both hugely enjoyable and deceptively artful * Spectator * I loved this hymn to the 1960s, their infinite creative possibilities * Scotsman * Vivid, sparky, a bit schmaltzy, and it rattles along * Independent * Endearing, humorous and touching. Hugely enjoyable * Sunday Mirror *
