Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist
by Rachel Cohn &
Released: May 2006
So you’re a guy; you’re at a band show and your ex, the girl who dumped you, walks in with the new guy. Looking for a safe exit, you ask the girl you happen to sitting with to be your girlfriend for five minutes. You’re a girl; you’re at a get-together and your least favorite female strolls in. The stranger sitting next to you asks you to be his five-minute date. So what do you? You lock lips .
Nick and Norah’s instant connect begins a roller-coaster “first date” that takes them through Manhattan and into themselves. A novel concept that works.
The Bookish Brunette says:
I absolutely, hands-down LOVED Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist. I read the book before I saw the movie (I’m anal like that) and my husband thinks I’m crazy out of control with my rule about never seeing a movie before having already read the book. Well too bad for him because he’s stuck with me and all my obsessive compulsive quirky tendencies!
Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist was a fast-paced, entirely fun read. I could not put this book down and read it in one sitting… granted the hardcover is only 183pgs. Details, details…
N & N takes place in the span of ONE day, and that’s not to say the story is rushed at all-because it’s perfect. It’s told from both Nick and Norah’s perspective which made me feel even closer to the story line!
Nick is a hot, broody musician who needed a 5 minute girlfriend (not the ‘dorky but cute’ guy like the insanely funny Michael Cera)… and Norah is an emotional roller-coaster on jet fuel. (My kind of chick right there.)
Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist is so realistically written that I was instantly taken back to my high school days and had me feeling all gooey and nostalgic inside… I may or may not have broken out the year books, that I may or may not have been blonde in.
Packed full of teenage awesomeness, Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist will always have a spot on my shelf!
