Funny Girl by Nick Hornby

I've finally finished this book! The sad thing first: I was relieved, that I'm finally done. That's not particularly a good thing, is it?

But the book hasn't been all bad. I wanted to finish it, I needed to know what's going to happen to the characters. So there's been some kind of suspense... I'm just not sure what it was.

"Funny Girl" is about a girl - about a boy was the other Nick Hornby one ;)

Barbara's from Blackpool, but moves to London at the beginning of the novel with the dream to become a comedy actress at the BBC. The story is set in the 1960, so TV was new and everything about it really exciting. And as you do she gets an agent, changes her name to Sophie Straw and makes her dream come true as the story continues.
