A comic genius
Darkly funny and oddly romantic.
An unusual mix of cynicism and romance - no slush, just lots of laughs!

Moving, wickedly observed, warm, uplifting and above all blindingly funny, STARTER FOR TEN hits the spot time after time. Read this book
Brilliant... we would recommend it to anyone
Funniest book of the year
'Romantic comedy with a charming British accent....plenty of material for screwball hilarity... His prose is laugh-out-loud funny... This jaunty, big-hearted novel is chick lit with a Y-chromosome.'
Brilliantly written and very funny
The set pieces of social embarrassment are neatly threaded together, and there are some well-crafted tender moments too... It could hold its own against a Richard Curtis script
The humour is authentic and perfectly pitched.
I adored "The Understudy". It's a fantastic comedy ... delightfully written.
A zippy comedy with laugh-out-loud lines, grounded on a solid plot and first-rate dialogue...irresistible.
Sharply funny...wonderfully chaotic.
An entertaining follow-up to Nicholls' brilliant debut.
