Nick Hornby and Company!

Timothy Osmer
 
A Long Way Down, English edition
A Long Way Down, English edition
"Is Life Worth Living? That's the big question of this comic novel, his latest. Despite what might seem like a depressing topic: suicide -- it's actually FUNNY, entertaining, humane."
High Fidelity
High Fidelity
"The masterpiece. The heart and soul of Nick Hornby. Maybe the best "guy" book ever written. The character of JJ in A LONG WAY DOWN is related to HIGH FIDELITY in many ways. Read both novels!"
Otherwise Pandemonium (Pocket Penguins)
Otherwise Pandemonium (Pocket Penguins)
"This Penguin special editions book consists of 2 short stories: Otherwise Pandemonium, Not a Star -- both very entertaining."
The Losers Club
The Losers Club
"A heartfelt and highly entertaining novel; Martin has a poet's heart and is in love with a gal who won't love him back, which propels him into the subculture of the personals with hilarious results."
About a Boy. Penguin Readers, Level 4
About a Boy. Penguin Readers, Level 4
"Another romantic comedy of sorts, involving issues of masculity and now - gasp! -- potential parenthood, in the shape of a 12-year-old boy, Marcus. Light-hearted and funny, once again."
Fever Pitch
Fever Pitch
"Sports Obsession! This book is about the male tendency to live, sleep, breathe a particular passion: in this case football! Great book!"
31 Songs, English edition

"Even if you don't agree with Hornby's choices in music, you must appreciate the style in which he writes these essays about his favorite records/musicians. Once again his passion shines through!"
How to be Good
How to be Good
"The impossible: A woman's point of view and her views of marriage, etc. A good experiment for Hornby, trying to stretch his wings. Not my favorite Hornby book. Good, not great."

"French translation of "About A Boy" -- I bought this book because I am insane and a Nick Hornby fanatic. I can't even read it!"
The Catcher in the Rye
The Catcher in the Rye
"NOT a Hornby book, obviously. But Salinger's Holden recalls a teenage version of Rob, the main character of High Fidelity. A great character study. Another novel that you can re-read endlessly."
Love Monkey: A Novel (P.S.)
Love Monkey: A Novel (P.S.)
"In the tradition of "High Fidelity, written by Kyle Smith. It's okay "lad lit" -- not great; borrow a copy; mildly amusing. Annoying to some. He refers to High Fidelity endlessly."
The Wishbones
The Wishbones
"This is a terrific "lad lit" book; a very decent, engaging novel by Tom Perrotta. If you like Hornby, you'll like this."

White City Blue
White City Blue
"Tim Lott's first novel. Quite popular in England where the "lad lit" scene is more happening. A lesser Nick Hornby."
A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius

"I need to mention Egger's "memoir" here. Fans of High Fidelity will enjoy this book!"
Grosse Pointe Blank
Grosse Pointe Blank
"I actually prefer Grosse Pointe Blank to the film version of High Fidelity, which of course does not, CANNOT, live up to the book. Hey, thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to read High Fidelity!"
