Overview

A sharp-witted coming of age story about a group of young adults who work at a movie theater.

Stuart Rowantree is desperately in love. Sure, he's infatuated with Vicky, the girl who never really notices him. And he's aroused by Shawna, the girl who is always mean to him. But Stuart finds himself in love with something else...he is passionate over a movie theater. He adores every popcorn machine; he swoons over every box office window.

Enjoy Your Show is a neurotic, funny, and strangely romantic novel. It's a coming of age story set in the minimum wage world of movie theater employees. After graduating from high school, Stuart and his fellow employees find an oasis between adolescence and adulthood. But will they ever grow up? Will they ever do something important? Will they ever want to?

    A funny, intelligent tale of the American workplace...

    This author, although rough around the edges, has crafted a collection of remarkable characters. This book offers a lot of laughs, but a lot of insight into the human condition.

    Very funny! Pop up some corn and read this book.

    This was a great read. Each chapter studies the misfit main character from a different point of view. It's pretty clever. Having worked at a cinema for a few years, I could totally relate to the characters. I certainly did 'Enjoy My Show.' I would recommend this to anyone who likes quirky, witty writing, coming of age stories.. or anything having to do with the movies!

    Funny and thoughtful!

    This book reminded me so much of my youth. It's about a group of young, somewhat misfit-like cinema employees. When I read it, I immediately flashed back to my days as a teen-ager in a wonderfully fun 'dead-end' job. Many of the chapters detail thewackiness that can go on at a movie theater, but the main focus of the book are the strangely romantic mis-adventures of Stuart, the book's awkward but likeable protaganist. I enjoyed Bradford's writing style. He tackles a multitude of characters, giving each one a unique voice. The entire book is laced with a very unusaly, yet addictive sense of humor. You find yourself laughing out loud in one paragraph, and only to suddenly be sobered up in the next.
