Publisher's Summary

The New York Times bestselling he-said/she-said rock n' roll romance that inspired the hit movie!

"I know this is going to sound strange, but would you mind being my girlfriend for the next five minutes?"

Nick frequents New York's indie rock scene nursing a broken heart. Norah is questioning all of her assumptions about the world. They have nothing in common except for their taste in music, until a chance encounter leads to an all-night quest to find a legendary band's secret show and ends up becoming a first date that could change both their lives.

Co-written by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan, co-author of Will Grayson, Will Grayson with John Green (The Fault In Our Stars), Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist is a sexy, funny roller coaster of a story that reminds you how you can never be sure where the night will take you…

Great Listen!

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.

Great story

This is a terrific audiobook. Immensely better than the movie that came out recently. The alternating viewpoints by chapter keeps the listener hooked.

Ahhhh....

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!!

Cute Little Romance

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.

If you like the film you'll love the book!

Would you listen to Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist again? Why?

I've listened to it at least 5 times and I always keep it on my my iphone as my backup audiobook.

What did you like best about this story?

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.

What about Emily Janice Card, and Kirby Heyborne’s performance did you like?

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.

Was there a moment in the book that particular moved you?

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.

Any additional comments?

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.

Worth A Spin on Your Playlist!

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!

Fast paced and full of humour!

When you are in the mood to read (or listen) to a fun, upbeat and all round humorous book, Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist will fit the bill. Written by co-authors Rachel Cohn and David Levithan, this book will have you wishing for a whirlwind of a night like Nick and Norah have.

First of all, I have read a few books written by both Rachel Cohn and David Levithan. I love how rich and full of excitement these stories are. Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist is a fast-paced book that takes place over a short period of time. The alternating perspectives in this particular book really add a wonderful flavour to the story and gives the listener quite a bit to digest as a new way of seeing the events unfolding is brought forth. I absolutely adored Norah’s character and her raw, edgy personality makes you laugh out loud as you are listening. Card and Heyborne both magically bring the characters to life with their narrations, making this one of my favourite audiobooks that I have listened to this year.

Wow! Terrible

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.

Infinite playlist

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

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

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

most interesting???; Least interesting was that it just seemed to drag on towards the end

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

I think the narrators were fine, it was sort of nice having 2 different voices for the 2 charecters

Could you see Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

its already been done
