    I have a problem.You see, when it comes to reviewing my favorite books, I m all thumbs Coherent thoughts elude me and float downstream like a toy boat escaping from a little boy s grasp.Rob is my soul mate, you see He and I are the same fucked up, insecure, too much in our own head for our own good person I think he would get me Really Get me Or maybe it s just Hornby who

    I realize that I give far too many books a four or five star rating So sue me.Book buying isn t, you know, a quick thing for me I browse, I choose, I read the blurbs inside, I deliberate, I read a chapter from ever book I ve chosen.In short, I only read things I m really likely to like.So, I will tell you right now, if there were a way to give High Fidelity six stars, I w

    Nick Hornby writes about losers and makes them lovable But not this time I couldn t stand the self pitying little git, his loser wanker record store buddies, nor their ridiculous fracking lists Reading this book felt like being trapped in an elevator with the pathetic Scrubs douchebag Zachy McWhinerson, or whatever his fracking name is for an entire weekend You know the type the consta

    We all have a handful of books that we feel were written specifically for us, as if the author took us out for dinner and drinks lots of drinks, on the author s tab and interviewed us on the important things in no particular order, except the order in which I thought of these love, faith, art, sex, career, family, friends Then they put our thoughts and feelings in a book High Fidelity

    Read as part of The Infinite Variety Reading Challenge, based on the BBC s Big Read Poll of 2003 I used to think and given the way we ended up, maybe I still do that all relationships need the kind of violent shove that a crush brings, just to get you started and to push you over the humps And then, when the energy from that shove has gone and you come to something approaching a halt, you have to look around and see

    This is the only Nick Hornby book I ve read, and it seemed like a good introduction to the genre I imagine must be called dick lit I read it on a plane to the West Coast, and it was the perfect thing started at take off, finished just before landing, this had the perfect proportions of light and engaging for 30,000 feet Ultimately, I found it sort of silly and empty and I had a hard time choosing between two and three stars, b
