High Fidelity had been on my top five list of favorite movies since it was released, and I knew it was originally a Nick Hornby book, but hadn't read it until this month. The movie is almost a verbatim recreation of the book, so I loved it. It has fantastic characters, classic Hornby, as well as really relateable situations. There's an authenticity and positivity that is rare. It's a quick read that I highly reccomend.
I love this book completely with one exception....the narrator's "southern drawl" is intolerable. But the good news is that character's appearances are sparse, so its worth suffering through.

The story is great, very similar to the movie. The narrator is not very enthusiastic and the recording quality is terrible.

With Cusak and Jack Black, the movie was great but nevertheless, the audiobook was still enjoyable and overall, I thought the narration was really good too.
