I am not sure where I got the idea to read Funny Girl, but since Nick Hornby is well regarded, I thought I would give it a try even though I haven’t read any of his other books. I started by being glad I did. This was a fun book with the tone of “About a Boy” (the movie version!) and others. Light, simple, but enjoyable. Just what I was looking for. However, it was too long and midway through, I was just waiting to get to the end, which took too long. All in all, not a favorite, though entertaining.
