Books Info:

Question of Attraction free pdf The year is 1985. Brian Jackson, a working-class kid on full scholarship, has started his first term at university. The usual freshman anxiety over fitting in is compounded by the gap between his own humble origins and the privileged backgrounds of his better-off classmates. Brian also has a dark secret--a long-held, burning ambition (stoked by his late father) to appear on the wildly popular TV quiz show University Challenge--and now, finally, it seems the dream is about to become reality. He's made the school team, and they've completed the qualifying rounds and are limbering up for their first televised match. (And, what's more, he's fallen head over heels for one of his teammates, the beautiful, brainy, and intimidatingly posh Alice Harbinson.) Life seems perfect and triumph inevitable--but as his world opens up, Brian learns that a little knowledge can be a dangerous thing. Reminiscent of such classic coming-of-age works as "The Graduate" and "Goodbye, Columbus, A Question of Attraction" marks the literary debut of David Nicholls, one of England's most highly praised television writers. It is an unforgettable story of love, class, finding one's place in the world, and the all-important difference between knowledge and wisdom. "I feel for" A Question of Attraction" as I do the pick 'n' mix counter at Woolworth's: nostalgic, giddy, happy, sick, and then devastated when there is none left. I could not put this book down. I love it. Literally." ALAN CUMMING, AUTHOR OF" TOMMY'S TALE" "What a delight. Every five minutes I was shouting 'ha ha ha' and reading out great swathes of hilarious narrative to whoever was in the room. David Nicholls is enormously talented, he hasan exquisite eye for detail, humour and the ridiculous and he deserves every ounce of the huge success he will undoubtedly have with this pleasure of a book." ANNA MAXTED, AUTHOR OF" GETTING OVER IT" AND "BEHAVING LIKE ADULTS" "Absolutely fabulous. And so painfully reminiscent: God, it whipped me right back. That's exactly what it was like for me. Brilliantly funny." JENNY COLGAN, AUTHOR OF "TALKING TO ADDISON" AND "AMANDA'S WEDDING"
