Nick frequents New York’s indie rock scene nursing a broken heart. Norah is questioning all of her assumptions about the world. They have nothing in common except for their taste in music, until a chance encounter leads to an all-night quest to find a legendary band’s secret show and ends up becoming a first date that could change both their lives.
Co-written by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan, co-author of WILL GRAYSON, WILL GRAYSON with John Green (THE FAULT IN OUR STARS), NICK & NORAH’S INFINITE PLAYLIST is a sexy, funny roller coaster of a story that reminds you how you can never be sure where the night will take you…
I re-read this book on my phone this week, and my opinion pretty much stayed the same. This story is in two P.O.V’s, about romance and teenage love in New York City. That’s it. Nothing else in the plot, just two kids getting to know each other one night at a club, and then they traipse around town with each other, doing nothing. There is a bit more going on in the beginning of the story (BFF gets drunk, car breaking down, bands playing, ex girlfriends) but somewhere in the middle of the story all of that disappears.
If you’re looking for a light, groovy contemporary, this is the book for you. Not too deep, not too complicated. If you want an action packed romance full of sex and breakups, this is not the book for you. Go for something more adult.
I gave this book 3 out of 5 stars, because… meh. That’s all. Just…. meh.
