    Rob is a pop music junkie who runs his own semi-failing record store in London. 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?

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Listening to Hornby's work is always time well spent. I was disappointed to hear that several good parts were omitted (that's the downside to "abridged").I was stuck in a massive heatwave while visiting relatives in Indiana. Nightly listens to this audiobook helped me forget about the blast furnace outside my hotel window.Next time I'll remember to pack my copy of the book, which I left at home on my nightstand.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I was not the biggest fan of the narrator. Yes, I understand that the book takes place in England (and not Chicago, like the film), but the narrator did the worst job of making up voices for the other characters. He should have just stuck with his own voice instead of holding his nose to create the voices of his fellow record store pals. Don't get me started on his Texas accent...


    Could you see High Fidelity being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Already has!
