"There are many heart-stopping, insightful moments in this supremely satisfying and sexy romance. A first-rate read." (School Library Journal)
This is a terrific audiobook. Immensely better than the movie that came out recently. The alternating viewpoints by chapter keeps the listener hooked.
Definity NOT a kids book. A real cool, well wriiten love story. Based out of New York City's Punk scene, it's not your typical boy meets girl book. Definitly worth a listen and I hope the authors write a sequel.
Okay, imagine it is the hottest day of the year and you reach inside a cold fridge and pull out the last coca cola. You pop the top and take that first sip. You can't help it when your eyes close and an "Ahhh..." escapes your lips.
I enjoyed this book as much as the ^ above ^ experience. I know it is classified as a YA book, but a few parts seemed a little mature.
The story flows so well and both the characters are strong and play well off each other. Very different than the movie.
I love this book. Great narrators.
Download this book!!
This was such an interesting romance. At first, the language threw me off a little because I didn't expect it but once I got into it, I was caught up in the story and all about the romance. I loved both Nick and Norah and wanted things to work out for them. Of course, the entire story takes place within one day so we have no idea what happens to them in the long run but I wanted to feel like they were going to get their happy ever after. I found the writing style to be very unique and interesting. All in all, it was a nice little romance to fill a day at work.
I've listened to it at least 5 times and I always keep it on my my iphone as my backup audiobook.
I love the way the book goes from Nick to Norah's perspective. The authors wrote the book by writing a chapter from the character's perspective and then sending it to each other. You can see the play back an forth, as they try to write each other into a corner, example the yellow Yugo. I loved the film, but the book is so much better. More details of the story and the characters get themselves into more shenanigans.
The performance was spot on! I really could believe that these performers were the characters. I love that a woman reads the Norah chapters and a man reads the Nick chapters.
I love when Kirby reads the song Ludlow lyrics. You could hear the heartbreak and passion of the song even though it wasn't sung.
I highly recommend this listen, but do not buy it if you are easily offended my harsh language. My Mother loved the movie but I would never tell her to listen it, because I know she would be shocked by all the use of profanity.
I am a book junkie...I read and enjoy a variety of stories, so please don't "define me" by one book or review! :)
This is fun, quirky story about how two young people (who are urban music fans out for a night of "band-worship") meet and start on the path to a possible relationship told in a "he-said / she-said" format. I feel this rather sexy and irreverent rendering of the story does fine justice to the book. The narration is top-notch, with great timing and pacing. Emily Janice Card is always a winner, and David Levithan convincingly brings Nick to life also!
I have a book addiction and an 2 hour commute, thank god for the sanity of audible
It was ok, I was glad that i finally have the whole story, have never manages to see the entire movie through from start to finish and it does go a bit more in depth into the character inner dialogue, explaining the actions
most interesting???; Least interesting was that it just seemed to drag on towards the end
I think the narrators were fine, it was sort of nice having 2 different voices for the 2 charecters
its already been done
I've been addicted to reading since high school. I started with pulp novels, switched to great literature in college and now read everything
I was surprised by the phoniness of this book. I thought the characters would really talk and act like teens. But you can hear and see the adult authors pulling the strings behind everything they say and do. It appears that some catch phrases and ideas are grabbed from kids' TV shows or movies, which makes the characters even more phony and boring. The teens in Harry Potter are more real than Nick and Norah.
