If you haven't seen the movie, you should. If you haven't read the book, well it's better than the movie. Nick Hornby is one of the best music writers living, and High Fidelity is a fun romp through one man's head.
Was an okay book, liked 'About a Boy' much better. Was slightly better than the film, but not very engaging.
I loved the movie and so I read the book - it was even better than the movie! It's also exposed me to some music that I love as well. Also read Hornby's Songbook - almost a memoir; a guide to songs he loves and why.
A great book. If you like Soccer..you should read Nick's other books. This book is filled with Love, Love Lost...and a Man searching for answers.
Good Story! I loved the movie with John Cusack and hadn't realized it was based on a book. What a wonderful surprise that the movie followed the book closely!!!
