High Fidelity...

I started reading High Fidelity by Nick Hornby yesterday. I was first told about this book back in 1995 (when it was first published) when I was working at a little record shop in West Hampstead. I think we were actually told about it several times by a couple of customers as well as one of the record company reps. They reckoned we'd enjoy it, being that we worked in a record store and all.

Well I never got round to reading the book although I did go and see the film when it came out (2000 starring John Cusack, jack Black and co) which I really enjoyed (even if they had transported everything to America :p).

Anyway, eleven years after first being told about it I've finally started reading it. And it's great. I don't know whether it's because I am a geek at heart (music, comics, games, books, films - you name it!) but the book is brilliant and I'm sure I've met most of the characters in it at one point or another!

Well, ok, I'm a geek too, but I don't think you're enjoying it just 'cos you're a geek, I think you're enjoying it because it's a kickass book. I first read it about eight years ago now and I find myself rereading it every so often. Just so wonderful.

that book is mave FAVOURITE novel ever!! (and I'm not exaggerating!!). That guy is ME, for the good and (especially) the bad things - it's one of the very few books I've read more than once already, and I'll probably read it again too.

Enjoy, and I'm sure you will
