About A Boy by Nick Hornby - Book Review

About A Boy by Nick Hornby

Fiction-Net Rating 5 Star Rated Book

Marcus is twelve. Will is thirty-six. Why can't they both act their age? In his second novel, Nick Hornby explores the connections people make when the so-called ideal family model does not apply.

A bit different to Nick Hornby's previous work but equally impressive with many side-splitting moments. About A Boy has the right balance of humour, reflection on life and has something of a serious side when the time is right.

High Fidelity by Nick Hornby - Book Review

High Fidelity by Nick Hornby

Fiction-Net Rating 5 Star Rated Book

Rob Fleming owns a small record shop in London - that is, unless you're watching the movie version, starring John Cusack, which decides that little old London isn't appropriate for the story and moves everything to Chicago. Bitter? Us?

The storyline of High Fidelity has a recurring backbone of music and the book can be considered a lesson (or a reminder) of how much music shapes our lives.

How To Be Good by Nick Hornby - Book Review

How To Be Good by Nick Hornby

Fiction-Net Rating 1 Star Rated Book

According to her own complex moral calculations, Katie Carr has earned her affair. She's a doctor, after all and doctors are decent people and on top of that, her husband, David is the self-styled Angriest Man in Holloway. When David suddenly becomes good, however - properly, maddeningly, give-away-all-his-money good - Katie's sums no longer add up and she is forced to ask herself some very hard questions.

How To Be Good is a silly, unrealistic and mostly unfunny book and to have to say that about a Nick Hornby novel is unexpected.

Speaking With The Angel by Nick Hornby - Book Review

Speaking With The Angel by Nick Hornby

Fiction-Net Rating 4 Star Rated Book

Twelve voices, twelve completely new stories, narrated by twelve different characters and all written by twelve of the most exciting and popular writers around.

Be warned, the Irvine Welsh story, 'Catholic Guilt - You Know You Love It', is not for the faint-hearted. He is as provocative as ever.
