First thing to note is that the book and movie are different. But very similar. The book takes place in England, the movie in the States.
That aside, this book is hilarious and any music lover, failing relationship holder, slacker, person unknown of their own future, will laugh out loud while reading this book.
from amazon.com:
It has been said often enough that baby boomers are a television generation, but the very funny novel High Fidelity reminds that in a way they are the record-album generation as well. This funny novel is obsessed with music; Hornby's narrator is an early-thirtysomething English guy who runs a London record store. He sells albums recorded the old-fashioned way--on vinyl--and is having a tough time making other transitions as well, specifically adulthood. The book is in one sense a love story, both sweet and interesting; most entertaining, though, are the hilarious arguments over arcane matters of pop music.
