uuughhh! Only Hornby can write in a way that makes my whole entire being smile with familiarity. I hold High Fidelity as close to my heart as I would a personal diary or journal. I love the way he builds his characters as real people with typical personality flaws. He acknowledges the absurd and molds it into something everyone can relate to. Because of Hornby, I have a better, more clear view of life in general.

I read only " how to be good" . It was Ok, but not outstanding . Everybody tells me his other novels are better, so I thinl I'll give it another try.

not high fidelity, not fever pitch, not even how to be good but (drumroll) about a boy. Charming witty and heart warmng. the film hmmmm not so great.

I'd don't know anyone else or any other reviewers that agree with me, but I really liked "How to be Good", at least the first chapter. It peters out though.

High Fidelity definitely makes my top 5.

Songbook seemed like it would be fun, especially when I found out it how much he is into "Thunder Road", but it's just silly song reviews. He realizes who self indulgent it is to publish that, but I can understand his passion. The danger is that some of his favorites will be songs you hate. I choose to believe that he is being satirical when he wrote about how much he likes "Come on Eileen".

I've currently only read A long way down and About a boy.. both which i enjoyed thorougly.
By the sounds of it my next venture should be high fidelity, yes?

So i'll be back once i can get my hands on it.

One of my favourite authors, I loved About a Boy.

The book of my life is "High Fidelity" because music is my life and Hornby writes about music very lovely.....

I'm looking for a supreme dialogue-writer. Someone who, despite (or in addition to) whatever's going on in the plot, I can thoroughly enjoy the witty banter there of. I've never read a Nick Hornby book, however I've given About a Boy a preview, and I absolutely loved the movie -- and the dialogue amuses the hell out of me. Does this ring true for Nick Hornby fans? What's the best aspect of his writing?
