Rob is a pop music junkie who runs his own semi-failing record store. His girlfriend, Laura, has just left him for the guy upstairs, and Rob is both miserable and relieved. After all, could he have spent his life with someone who has a bad record collection? Rob seeks refuge in the company of the offbeat clerks at his store, who endlessly review their top five films (Reservoir Dogs...); top five Elvis Costello songs ("Alison"...); top five episodes of Cheers (the one where Woody sang his stupid song to Kelly...). Rob tries dating a singer whose rendition of "Baby, I Love Your Way" makes him cry. But maybe it's just that he's always wanted to sleep with someone who has a record contract. Then he sees Laura again. And Rob begins to think (awful as it sounds) that life as an episode of thirtysomething, with all the kids and marriages and barbecues and k.d. lang CD's that this implies, might not be so bad.… (mer)

If you're a girl, you're probably gonna be frustrated with Rob. But, there's the pure charm of it. Of course you're gonna hate him. He's insecure, messed up, thinks too much, talks too little about what matters and messes with you. But you're also gonna understand him and relate to him. And maybe you're gonna hate yourself for it :P
And the ending is excellent. Mr Hornby, great job.
Oh and yes, SO MANY GOOD MUSIC REFERENCES, I wanted to die!!! ( )

This is one of those feel-good books for people who want to keep their options open and kinda stumble about their lives only to realize they had already made up their minds and are pretty dully okay with it. :)

Does this sound kinda horrible?

Nah... but yeah, kinda, and no, because that means we're all a bit horrible. :)

But that's okay because we all have that music snob in us and we are all horribly geeky about certain things. I happen to love music just as much as Rob in the book and I'm much worse when it comes to my books, but you know what? It's freaking charming. I love it.

Just the way I loved the movie before I knew it was based on this book, I loved it. It was super charming and embarrassing and appropriate and pathetic and downright glorious. All at once.

And I'm a fan. Still am, now that I've read the book. And my only complaint? I need that soundtrack running in the background... OH WAIT! I HAVE SPOTIFY! :) Tee hee! ( )

Si può dividere l'esistenza con qualcuno che ha una collezione di dischi incompatibile con la propria? Trentacinquenne appassionato di musica pop, ex dj e attualmente proprietario di un negozio di dischi in cattive acque, Rob Fleming è pieno di interrogativi che lo inquietano. La ragazza lo ha appena lasciato; se per caso ritornasse, sarebbe capace di amarla totalmente, disperatamente come adesso? Appassionato, commovente, amaro, ma anche e soprattutto ironico, anche e soprattutto divertente, Alta fedeltà mette felicemente in scena le avventure, gli amori, i sogni, le disillusioni di una generazione (di trentenni) già piuttosto provata, ma ancora piena di voglia di vivere.

sexist, offensive and just plain awful. ( )

1st half: 3 stars
2nd half: 2 stars

the whining was fun for a while. The kinds of angsty thoughts and daydreams that popped into his head reminded me of the angsty thoughts and daydreams my own brain excels at producing. But then it got boring and kind of pointless, and eventually so pointless as to be bordering on the realistic. Now that I'm done, I'm amazed I made it all the way through. ( )

Happily, Hornby does not rely on pop-cultural allusion to limn his characters' inner lives, but uses it instead to create a rich, wry backdrop for them... Hornby is as fine an analyst as he is a funny man, and his book is a true original.

Mr. Hornby captures the loneliness and childishness of adult life with such precision and wit that you'll find yourself nodding and smiling.

People worry about kids playing with guns, and teenagers watching violent videos; we are scared that some sort of culture of violence will take them over. Nobody worries about kids listening to thousands—literally thousands—of songs about broken hearts and rejection and misery and loss. The unhappiest people I know, romantically speaking, are the ones who like pop music the most.
