High fidelity

High Fidelity is the story of Rob, a pop music junkie who runs his own semi-failing record store. His girlfriend Laura has just left him for Ian from the flat upstairs. Rob is both miserable and relieved. After all, could he have spent his life with someone who has a bad record collection? This narrowly misses his list of all-time top five most memorable split-ups. Rob seeks refuge in the company of Barry and Dick, the offbeat clerks at his store. They speak the masculine language of lists, endlessly reviewing their top five films (Reservoir Dogs...); top five Elvis Costello songs ("Alison"...); top five episodes of Cheers (the one where Woody sang his stupid song to Kelly...). Rob tries dating a singer called Marie (a post-Partridge Family, pre-L.A. Law Susan Dey), who once sold a song to Nanci Griffith. Her rendition of "Baby, I Love Your Way" makes him cry. But maybe it's just that he's always wanted to sleep with someone who has a record contract. Then he sees Laura again. And Rob begins to think (as awful as it sounds) that life as an episode of thirtysomething, with all the kids and marriages and jobs and barbecues and k.d. lang CDs that this implies, might not be so bad.

  • "Un roman hilarant, voilà l'évènement ! (...) Il y a de quoi faire dans cette histoire destinée aux individus coincés et mal coincés entre la trentaine et tout ce qui suit. Rob, bientôt trente-six ans, est mal en point : "Qu'ai-je fait de ma vie ?" se demande ce sempiternel adolescent qui craint de vieilir (même bien) au lendemain d'une rupture en contemplant les bacs de son magasin de disques pop paumé dans une ruelle de Londres..."

  • "Nick Hornby's High Fidelity is the brilliant story of one man's journey of self-discovery. When Rob - a thirty-five-year old record shop owner and music obsessive - is dumped by Laura he indulges in some casual sex, a little light stalking and some extreme soul-searching in the form of contacting every ex-girlfriend who ever broke his heart. An instant classic, High Fidelity is a hilarious exploration of love, life, music and the modern male. -- BOOK COVER."@en

  • "Rob is good on music: he owns a small record shop and has strong views on what's decent and what isn't, but he's much less good on relationships. In fact, he's not at all sure that he wants to commit himself to anyone, so it's hardly surprising that his girlfriend decides that enough is enough."@en
