Will men always be boys?
am 24. Dezember 2000
High Fidelity was the first, but will not be the last novel, I had read from Nick Hornby. His marvellous black humour, his detailed and funny observation of the life of a mid-thirty and the way he described the development of Rob, the main character, had caught my attention and was not released until the last page. High Fidelity deals with the more or less unlucky love - not sex- life of Rob, an owner of an unsuccessful record shop. His girl friend has just left him and Rob begins to rethink his life. It is not only the question, whether Rob's girlfriend will return to him or not, that keeps the novel exciting. Moreover, it is the question whether Rob will change his life - from that of a 35-year-old guy who never wants to be older than 18 to that of a mid-thirty who is content with the things he does and whose main concern is not whether the record collection of possible friends does fulfil certain criteria. One critic says, never let your girl friend read this book as it reveals all the secrets of men. I am not sure if it really tells you everything about men. But my understanding of my boy friend has improved. After all, this novel is really great and an excellent occupation of time.
