Straightforward love story

Love Unscripted - Owen Nicholls

This comes under the heading of women’s fiction so it probably serves me right if I don’t enjoy this much. Although I’ve not read it (but seen the film): it reminds me of High Fidelity but the references are all related to films this time with others about music with which I am not familiar. Nick, the narrator, takes us through his first “date” with Ellie, alternating chapters with their break-up and the end result. Because it’s a first-person narrative, there’s a lot of introspection. It’s straightforward but lacks humour. Not really my cup of tea but I’m sure that many will enjoy it. I received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
