Star in a classic novel

bookhero.jpg

Now, we hate to make massive sweeping statements but we're assuming that your life probably is not worthy of a novel. As much as you might enjoy your weekends, they're not really going to keep anyone turning the pages with manic fury.

But if your desperate need for meaning and attention has you itching to be the lead of a bestseller, help is here.

A smart company called U Star Novels have created a new personalised service where you can become the protagonist of a classic novel. Not only that but you can also cast your friends and family as key roles.

There's a wide selection of books to choose from, including A Tale Of Two Cities and Frankenstein, meaning you can easily feature your least favourite person as a grotesque, murderous monster if you so wish.

The service costs £16.95 and you can order yours here.
