'Sometimes a book comes along and it feels dusted with magic - Love, Unscripted is one of those books' Josie Silver

'A complete delight' Holly Bourne

Love, Unscripted follows film projectionist Nick as he tries to understand the difference between love on the big screen and love in real life. Owen Nicholls is perfect for fans of romcoms, David Nicholls and Nick Hornby.

For film projectionist Nick, love should mirror what he sees on the big screen. And when he falls for Ellie on the eve of the 2008 presidential election, it finally does.

For four blissful years, Nick loved Ellie as much as he loved his job splicing film reels together in the local cinema. Life seemed... picture-perfect.

But now it's 2012, Ellie has moved out and Nick's trying to figure out where it all went wrong.

With Ellie gone and his life far from the happy ending he imagined, Nick wonders if their romance could ever again be as perfect as the night they met.

Can love really be as it is in the movies?

MEDIA REVIEWS
A complete delight for film lovers (and lovers of love) * Holly Bourne *
High Fidelity with celluloid replacing vinyl - an astutely observed romantic comedy that had me shaking with laughter and sniffing away tears. Pure pleasure. * Nev Pierce, Contributing Editor EMPIRE Magazine *
Sometimes a book comes along and it feels dusted with magic - Love, Unscripted is one of those books. Nostalgic, tender and achingly cool, it has the same understated beauty as a John Cusack movie. A love letter to the silver screen and to all of the iconic romantic comedies - it's book treasure, my new favourite. * Josie Silver, author of One Day in December *

“A contemporary romance with a lot of humour”

Nick has fallen in love with Ellie, but nothing is straightforward. Nick is a projectionist in a small cinema, Ellie is a photographer with prospects. This is a lovely comedy with more than a hint of pathos. There are... More

“Straightforward love story”

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... More

“a four-star read that will take you away like the movies”

Love, Unscripted by Owen Nicolls a four-star read that will take you away like the movies. I had such high hopes for this one, I really loved the blurb and what I was hearing about this story, maybe that’s why I... More
