Does your life feel like a dress rehearsal? Do you long to enter the limelight and steal the show? But what do you do when you're playing second fiddle to an arrogant actor who barely knows your name? And, more importantly, what do you do when you find yourself falling in love with his wife?

"Not to be missed"
This was my second David Nicholls audio book and I enjoyed this story of the under dog and understudy Stephen McQueen and his escapades even more than "US" which I also really enjoyed.
Great performance from the narrator too.
"Mad, bad and dangerous?"
A life not going as intended made more poignant by contrast with the proximity of another's success, this is a story of failed acting ambition and a lost relationship as told from the perspective of the main protagonist, Stephen.
The character is captured well by the narrator, Paul Thornley, in an excellent reading and Mr. Nicholl's dialogue and text is, at times, both witty and just tinged with an equal quantity of hope and despair.
I did enjoy this book but am still uncertain if it has left me sad for the loss of the past or hopeful for life to come. Recommended.
"Nice story but slow"
It's nice to see the progression of he character but the ending is very deflating and also the story took a while to get going
"Great funny Story"
Yes, very interested the whole way through and perfect for a tube book.
I love the acting culture and books that are based around things and places i know this was funny, witty and a good story to follow.
Steve, very believable realistic and easy to follow. also i love under dog stories.
classic under dog story set against the hard life of a west end actor.
