I discovered Nick Hornby after watching, and absolutely loving, HighFidelity for the first time.
High Fidelity is basically the male bible. I really identify with it and his views are so pinpoint accurate.
I don't know if I'd go that far, but I deffinately found myself identifying with Rob,and the circumstances he was encountering, which only further proves how much of an old soul I've got, apparantely.
Personally,I think I slightly prefer the film version of High Fidelity to the book, probably becauseof Jack Black - the"Cosby Sweeter" bit in particular had me infits of laughter, though as for About a Boy, personally I prefer the book to the movie.
For some reason, I still haven't seen Fever Pitch
, though again loved the book.
As for The Polysyllabic Spree
- I thought it was good for what it was - a collection of book reviews and recommendations.
