Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Brilliant! This book is amazing. The plot, the characters, the events, the writing-everything. I fell in love with Nick and Norah, and felt like I was right there alongside them. The writing is fantastic, and the feelings and confusion they experience all fits with the characters. I love Nick & Norahs Infinite Playlist, and everything-everything-about it. Just read this book. Seriously, all thats left to do is to go out and buy it and read it. Its freaking fantastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from F---ing Amazing This book is amazing and a relatively quick read. I read it in about 4 hours on a slow day at work. I loved the chemistry between the characters and the emotions that the book went through. Nervous to see how the movie measures up to it though...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty Good! This was a really quick read--just two hours or so--but a good one, too. I went into it pretty doubtful but it was fun, funny, and really cute! I probably won't watch the movie (judging from the trailer, they've changed a lot) but the book is worth a read. Pick it up from a library, or maybe if you see it on sale. The characters were all really well-developed, and funnily enough, I actually liked Tris quite a lot. And Norah--Norah was hilarious!--and Nick, too. Good read!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Book! Fantastical rendition of two teens beginning something new in a chaotic world. The characters are completely believable and intelligent. This adventure of two people, one night, and a drunken best friend opens the world of teenage angst in a complete realistic fashion. It was like reliving everything I've felt from age ten to age twenty in 183 pages.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great read This book was recommended by a number of customers and friends and it was just delightful. The swearing was a bit gratuitous in my opinion, but understandable. A great he said she said story, about a night that I think everyone wishes they could experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well done! I really liked this book! I thought it was just a wonderful example of not just teen love, but those awkward transitional moments between relationships, between what was and realizing that you're worth much more than that. A lot of cute musical references and modern teen verbiage, but it really doesn't dissuade the reader from the intensity of the two characters. It's fantastic to read it from both their view points... giving you the urge to smack them both and just say "Talk to each other!!" When the authors get to the point where Nick and Norah try to take that relationship to the next level, I was almost disappointed. I didn't want the story (the relationship?) to end on that note, thus sort of invalidating everything that had happened up to that point. It was handled so well, so comically, and in exactly the right direction, though, that I, as the reader, felt entirely vindicated.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Definitely for an Older teen I liked this book - a story of the one crazy night Nick and Norah meet in a club in New York City. A story of music and exes and screwed up relationships and attraction. It was a quick read and I want to read the author's next collaboration. I didn't like it as much as the Gingerbread series though. And it is definitely high school teenagers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Perfect Teenage Night Out Written by two exceptional teen fic authors, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist is the type of night I wish I had have experienced in high school. From their first meeting and subsequently, first kiss, to sunrise where they're dancing in the rain utterly exhausted but reluctant to end the night, it feels like you are right there with them throughout their Saturday night adventures. Each new wrench in the night's plans is viewed through both teens' eyes thus giving the reader both sides of the story. This is a book that will be enjoyed by tweens, teens and young adults, male or female. Even those out of high school can appreciate the story, as it brings back those awkward and uncertain feelings that goes along with your teen years, yet at the same time, reminding you of those unexpected nights where anything can and does happen.

Read from the Book

1. NICK I find Dev at the bar, talking to a guy our age who looks familiar in that Type kind of way. When I get to where they’re standing, I’m introduced as “the bass god, Nick,” and he’s introduced as “Hunter from Hunter.” Dev thanks me for being equipment bitch, and from the way the conversation doesn’t continue from there I know I’m interrupting. If it was Thom, my agitation would probably be noticed. But Dev needs you to spell emotions out for him, and right now I’m not in the mood. So I just tell him where I left the stuff and pretend I’m going off to search for a clear spot on the bar to summon the bartender from. And once I’m pretending that’s the truth, I figure it might as well be the truth. I still can’t see Tris, and there’s a small part of me that’s wondering if it was even her in the crowd. Maybe it was someone who looked like Tris, which would explain the guy who didn’t look like anybody. Are You Randy? stop playing their instruments one by one, until the lead singer croons a final, a cappella note. I wish for their sake I could say the club falls into silence at this, but in truth the air is one-half conversation. Still, that’s better than average, and the band gets a lunge of applause and cheers. I clap, too, and notice that the girl next to me puts two fingers in her mouth to whistle old-fashioned style. The sound is clear and spirited, and makes me thi
