Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist

Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist

by: Rachel Cohn and David Levithan

# of pages: 208

Age range: anyone who can stand to see the F word more than 5 times in a sentence.

Unfortunately I couldn't get the Synopsis for this book, but I'm sure my own review will do just fine.

Every chapter the book alternates between Nick, and Norah's perspective. It starts with Nick who's all like "F the world, F you!" In other worlds his fake chested cheating dyed blonde girlfriend dumped him, what a loss.

Norah's all like, "Eh, I don't want to listen to this crap band sing F you anymore, but I can't leave my drunk bff alone with sexual predators."

So of course the two meet and Nick ask's Norah to be his girlfriend for five minutes when he see's his Ex Tish with another man, the two kiss, tish see's them, the story begins.

Tish turns out to be a school mate of Norah's, so Norah know was a good boyfriend Nick is, she likes him but she's kind of atough girl. The two go rampaging around NYC for the night, get to know each other, and fall in love.

This book is high on talk about, alcohol, swearing, drugs, sex and all of that stuff, which is frighteningly real these days, but can be a downer in a book when you want to escape from the real world into a nice little fake world for a few minutes.

But getting past all the swearing and drunkness, the book is actually pretty good. But on a movie rating scale, it's a PG-13.
