This book is about a few things. It’s about (1) being young & (2) a dude (3) in London, (4) loving pop culture, & (5) love in general. I’m a young girl in NYC who likes pop culture & love in general, so why not try it?
High Fidelity was….good. I’m definitely happy I read it. I understand the hype around it. It was funny in the way a comedian is funny when he tells a joke that everybody in the audience can say, “I’ve been there. I know exactly what he’s talking about.” Hornby is a writer in that he sees these everyday flukes in a hilariously accurate way. His characters were so real, especially his coworkers. I can name you at least ten people I know that those characters are almost exact representations of.
