Is anyone a fan of this book? It's one of my absolute favorites

The movie comes out in October. I'll probably go see it, but keep my expectations reallllllyyyyy low.

But I love Michael Cera (Nick) and I think he can do no wrong! :P

I haven't read the book yet (the closest I got was checking it out of the library a year and a half ago) but I've wanted to read it since it came out.  I just requested it at the library and should be able to read it soon.

I have to say I guess I'm just not a fan of Cohen or Leviathan...  I've read a variety of books by both (including NO KISS LIST) and i don't care for the writing style.  i've not seen any trailers for the movie yet, though our local theater has a cardboard cut out in the front window...  So who knows what I'll wind up doing...

I did end up reading Nick and Norah, and I loved it.  I'll probably watch the DVD.

I've read and enjoyed books by both Cohen and Levithan.  I read Levithan's Are We There Yet? shortly after Nick and Norah, and it was a sweet story about two brothers who are tricked by their parents into going to Italy together.

I've read everything by Levithan. Wide Awake is also excellent. It's about a future America where the first Jewish Gay president has been elected ans the controversy surrounding it. I read it in September or October and it was very appropriate for election season.
