Starter for Ten

Brian has arrived at university with a stronger desire than the acquisition of knowledge: he's going to be a star of TV's hottest quiz, University Challenge. But his progress on 'The Challenge' is somewhat stymied by his growing desire for the beguiling Alice Harbison, struggling to make her mark as an actress. And as obstacles impede their affair, Brian becomes more and more convinced that only overwhelming success on the quiz show will win her.

    "One Day, this is not, but a great read and fun"

    I loved One Day and so came to this with very high expectations. Yes I was a little disappointed but actually after I got over that it was a good fun story. Loved the underlying theme that holds the story together, the games show.

    Story line is obvious and linear but actually all the better for that.

    A pleasure to listen to and you do grow close to the small pool of key characters.

    "a good read"

    the young working class boy at university - a middle class girl, a classic scenario but well done and the way that the story hinges around University Challenge made it page turning and amusing.

    Well read - it pushed all my empathy to the boy, even feeling his embarrassment in some of his more ridiculous predicaments
