Mini Review: Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan
I want to thank Electric Monkey for giving me the chance to review this book. I had not really heard of it until the movie was released, and even then I did not see the movie, so going into Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist I didn't know what to expect from this book.
One thing that I love about the cover is it actually uses the sentences in the book to make the design on the front cover, it is also very eye-catching and would definitely stand out on a book shelf.
When I began reading I was instantly drawn towards Norah, I love her as a character, her sense of humour, and her inner monologue is hilarious, especially when she goes off on a tangent and randomly brings up pop culture references. Nick I didn't initially know how to take, but I soon warmed up to him and I soon found myself laughing at his inner monologue as much as Norah's
Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist is more than music. We see two lost souls, still reeling from their own breakups, trying to find someone they can relate to, and find a common bond.....that does involve music.
Nick is lost, still reeling from his traumatic break up from Tris, he sees Norah as the first person who can help him in a dilemma. Norah is only willing to participate in said plan when she realises that she too needs a helping hand, and although this duo has some ups and downs, and some huge misunderstandings, the journey they both take entertained me in a lot of aspects.
My only grumble about this Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist, is that the events take place over one night, and it occasionally felt rushed, like too much information was being fit into a short space of time. While the main plot of the story is still fresh in my mind, a lot of other details are blurry.
Overall, Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist was a good, quick read that I did enjoy.
