Is it possible to share your life with someone whose record collection is incompatible with your own? Can people have terrible taste and still be worth knowing? Do songs about broken hearts and misery and loneliness mess up your life if consumed in excess?
For Rob Fleming, thirty-five years old, a pop addict and owner of a failing record shop, these are the sort of questions that need an answer, and soon. His girlfriend has just left him. Can he really go on living in a poky flat surrounded by vinyl and CDs or should he get a real home, a real family and a real job? Perhaps most difficult of all, will he ever be able to stop thinking about life in terms of the All Time Top Five bands, books, films, songs - even now that he's been dumped again, the top five break-ups?
Memorable, sad and very, very funny, this is the truest book you will ever read about the things that really matter.

Textul de pe ultima copertă

'If you really wanted to mess me up,
you should have got to me earlier . . .'
Rob and Laura have split up. But Rob isn't miserable. He's free. He can do what he wants when he wants: like listen to the music he likes, see other people, and show Laura that she never mattered that much. Except despite how hard he tries, Rob can't seem to move on. And when he sees Laura again he discovers quite how much he misses her. What's wrong with him? Is he finally turning into the man she always wanted him to be? And is this a good, or a bad thing?
'Leaves you believing not only in the redemptive power of music but above all the redemptive power of love. Funny and wise, sweet and true' - Independent


"As funny, compulsive and contemporary a first novel as you could wish for."—GQ

"One of the top ten books of the year."—Entertainment Weekly

"It is rare that a book so hilarious is also so sharp about sex and manliness, memory and music."—The New Yorker

"Mr. Hornby captures the loneliness and childishness of adult life with such precision and wit that you'll find yourself nodding and smiling. High Fidelity fills you with the same sensation that you get from hearing a debut record album that has more charm and verve and depth than anything you can recall."—The New York Times Book Review

"Hornby's seamless prose and offhand humor make for one hilarious set piece after another, as suffering, self-centered Rob ruminates on women, sex, and Abbey Road. But then he's forced to consider loneliness, fitting-in, death, and failure—and that is what lingers."—Spin

"Keep this book away from your girlfriend—it contains too many of your secrets to let it fall into the wrong hands."—Details
