Comic Tale of a University `Rite of Passage',
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Starter for Ten (Paperback)
Our anti-hero struggles gamely with his awkward age, social class, and level of self -confidence.
Nevetheless, spurred on by a reasonably high IQ and an optimistic personality, he constructs his social life, which consists of one part fulfillment and three parts disaster.
This evocation of university life is packed with witty observations.(It probably helps if you've had similar experiences to the protagonist).
The characters he meets on the way are fun to be with, and the plot is neat and satisying enough to propel us through his story.
Good fun - our hero enjoys his life, and we enjoy it even more.
