Book Review #161 - Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan

Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist

It all starts when Nick asks Norah to be his girlfriend for five minutes. He only needs five minutes to avoid his ex-girlfriend, who’s just walked in to his band’s show. With a new guy. And then, with one kiss, Nick and Norah are off on an adventure set against the backdrop of New York City—and smack in the middle of all the joy, anxiety, confusion, and excitement of a first date.

This he said/she said romance told by YA stars Rachel Cohn and David Levithan is a sexy, funny roller coaster of a story about one date over one very long night, with two teenagers, both recovering from broken hearts, who are just trying to figure out who they want to be—and where the next great band is playing.

Told in alternating chapters, teeming with music references, humor, angst, and endearing side characters, this is a love story you’ll wish were your very own. Working together for the first time, Rachel Cohn and David Levithan have combined forces to create a book that is sure to grab readers of all ages and never let them go.

My Rating: 4/5

I was really excited to read this book because I really enjoyed Dash and Lily's Book of Dares which is by the same two authors.

I really think the two authors writing styles blend well together and I would like them to write more together.

I had watched the movie based on this book many years ago, and then rewatched it after reading it. The movie is almost as good as the book, although it does change alot of aspects from the book.

It took me just over a hour to read this book. I found it really fast paced and I was unable to put it down.

What I loved most about this book was that it was set in New York. The setting really felt like another character in the book.

Whilst I didn't really like either Nick or Norah, it didn't subtract anything away from the story. I still really enjoyed it.

  1. I've seen part of the movie, but I really want to read this book. It's interesting that it is written by two people!
