Rob is a pop music junkie who runs his own semi-failing record store. His girlfriend, Laura, has just left him for the guy upstairs, and Rob is both miserable and relieved. After all, could he have spent his life with someone who has a bad record collection? Rob seeks refuge in the company of the offbeat clerks at his store, who endlessly review 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 whose 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 (awful as it sounds) that life as an episode of thirtysomething, with all the kids and marriages and barbecues and k.d. lang CD's that this implies, might not be so bad.… (plus d'informations)

Why haven't I read this book before now?

Witty writing. Prose that pops. Quirky characters. Mr. Hornsby is a talented storyteller and wordsmith. Rob Fleming is the most annoying, and yet endearing, main character I have ever encountered. ( )
  bschweiger | Feb 4, 2024 |
Well-written unlikable character. The ending is just okay; the not-quite-manic-pixie-dream-girl comes to the rescue. ( )
  MakebaT | Jan 15, 2024 |
I loved the movie, but I'm starting to think John Cusack might be why. I didn't like any of the characters in the book and I didn't feel like any of Rob's justifications for some of the things he did made him easier to understand or more likeable. However, I always like stories where people talk about the inner implications of being confronted with change so I did enjoy reading it despite the failed attempt at making a selfish man appear decent. ( )
  jskeltz | Nov 23, 2023 |
I liked it much better than the movie because it is fuller, more fleshed-out about why things are happening and what people are feeling. The fun and silly stuff from the movie is still there, and still funny, and somehow better because of the balance with the emotional stuff. ( )
  blueskygreentrees | Jul 30, 2023 |
I enjoyed it especially since I had seen the film years ago. Hornsby is a good storyteller though it seemed a bit slow to me. ( )

Happily, Hornby does not rely on pop-cultural allusion to limn his characters' inner lives, but uses it instead to create a rich, wry backdrop for them... Hornby is as fine an analyst as he is a funny man, and his book is a true original.
ajouté par Shortride | modifierTime, Gina Bellafante (Oct 9, 1995)
 
Mr. Hornby captures the loneliness and childishness of adult life with such precision and wit that you'll find yourself nodding and smiling.
ajouté par Shortride | modifierThe New York Times Book Review, Mark Jolly (Sep 3, 1995)
 
What follows unconvincing, because it is too self-consciously the stuff of fiction. As Rob’s life begins to change it becomes harder to believe in it because he starts to behave out of character — Rob like the author starts trying too hard.

People worry about kids playing with guns, and teenagers watching violent videos; we are scared that some sort of culture of violence will take them over. Nobody worries about kids listening to thousands—literally thousands—of songs about broken hearts and rejection and misery and loss. The unhappiest people I know, romantically speaking, are the ones who like pop music the most.
