(Edited! See below.) I think the problem with Nick Hornby is he's now just writing the novelization of the movie of his books, without writing actual books anymore. It's a lazy book. Granted, you can't get too in depth when your novel is told in first-person from a fifteen year old boy, but still. At the same time, every time I read this, I found myself really in to it. I almost missed my stop on the train twice. While I still say this is only a three-star book, this says a lot about what kind of three-star book it is. I don't regret reading it, but don't think I'd recommend anyone else do it. ETA- Huh. What does it say that after I write this, I read reviews that point out one thing that I don't think I'd realized, is that this is probably categorized as a YA novel. DUH. I think with that in mind, I'd probably say four stars. Which is not to say I think the bar is lower for YA lit- I don't- but that if that's the case, then it isn't that Hornby isn't trying, it's just that he's doing something I didn't realize. Please organize your books better, Borders at Columbus Circle in Manhattan, so I don't make this mistake again!

Great book and a very fast read. I read it in two days. Funny and poignant and heartfelt. Witty writing and great character development.
