Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan

Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist
Rachel Cohn and David Levithan


It all starts when Nick asks Norah to be his girlfriend for five minutes. He only needs five minutes to avoid his ex-girlfriend, who's just walked in to his band's show. With a new guy. And then, with one kiss, Nick and Norah are off on an adventure set against the backdrop of New York City;and smack in the middle of all the joy, anxiety, confusion, and excitement of a first date.

This he said/she said romance told by YA stars Rachel Cohn and David Levithan is a sexy, funny roller coaster of a story about one date over one very long night, with two teenagers, both recovering from broken hearts, who are just trying to figure out who they want to be;and where the next great band is playing.

Told in alternating chapters, teeming with music references, humor, angst, and endearing side characters, this is a love story you'll wish were your very own. Working together for the first time, Rachel Cohn and David Levithan have combined forces to create a book that is sure to grab readers of all ages and never let them go.

 This book was fun and cute, but I didn't love it the way I loved Dash and Lily's.

Let me start by saying it's different from the book. VERY different. After the first 50 pages or so, it goes in a totally different path. So, that took some adjusting since I adore the movie.

I found I wasn't addicted to read it. Nick and Norah's not even 200 pages and it took me three or four sittings to finish it. Sure, I'm pretty busy this time of year, but 200 pages? That's nothing. So, that was a little disappointing.

The book was fun and cute, though. It had lots of funny moments and Nick was still adorkable, though in a different way and Norah was still kind of bitchy, but in a good way.

I guess...I dunno. I guess I expected more because of my love of the movie and all the amazing things I've heard. It was good and I still enjoyed it a lot, just not as much as I thought I would. But maybe, like the movie, I need to read it more than once to love it...if only I had the time!

  1. I've seen this movie and I thought it was super cute! I'm sorry to hear that the book didn't live up to the expectations.
