Reviews

"As funny, compulsive and contemporary a first novel as you could wish for."--GQ

"One of the top ten books of the year."--Entertainment Weekly

"It is rare that a book so hilarious is also so sharp about sex and manliness, memory and music."--The New Yorker

"Mr. Hornby captures the loneliness and childishness of adult life with such precision and wit that you'll find yourself nodding and smiling. High Fidelity fills you with the same sensation that you get from hearing a debut record album that has more charm and verve and depth than anything you can recall."--The New York Times Book Review

"Hornby's seamless prose and offhand humor make for one hilarious set piece after another, as suffering, self-centered Rob ruminates on women, sex, and Abbey Road. But then he's forced to consider loneliness, fitting-in, death, and failure--and that is what lingers."--Spin

"Keep this book away from your girlfriend--it contains too many of your secrets to let it fall into the wrong hands."--Details
