Last night, I finished reading Nick Hornby’s bestseller “High Fidelity“.
I’ve been wanting to read this book ever since I saw the movie, starring John Cusack and Jack Black, which I really really liked.
I enjoyed the book a lot, and now I see what a great job they did with the movie transforming the book to film. I really like Nick Hornby’s humour and his first-person narrator style of writing.
The book is about a thirtysomething English guy who runs a London record store called “Championship Vinyl”. He’s very serious about music and sells all these rare albums and singles on vinyl. His love life is a mess and he’s having a tough time making the transition into adulthood.
It’s a funny, sweet, light take on life and love.
I somehow relate to the main character, not in his life and his unhappiness, but in some aspects of his thinking and personality.
This is a really fun and cool story, so I recommend you both read the book and watch the movie.
My score for this book: 8/10.
