Review: Nick Hornby – High Fidelity

Nick Hornby High FidelityHigh Fidelity is an entertaining self-help novel for men on how not to handle relationships. How much men will enjoy this, I don’t know, but I can tell you, from a female’s point of view, it is very funny. It lays out men’s insecurities and relationship foibles to a tee, with an egotistical hero who lives to be rejected by women and who is destined to be stuck in a non-career as a list-obsessed record shop owner, avoiding decisions in order to ‘keep his options open’.

You’re guaranteed some funny jokes, an entertaining style, and, at last (for women), an explanation of why men are like they are. And if you’re old enough to remember half the records music buff Rob reels off, you can have an enjoyable time reminiscing. VP

One thought on “Review: Nick Hornby – High Fidelity

  1. Hornby far too ‘blokeish’ (that’s right for the British, isn’t it?). This one esp. is just a book of lists.
