I had mixed feelings about this book. Similarly to how Norah has mixed feelings for Nick.
I’ve given him more mixed signals than a dyslexic Morse code operator.
This book made me all gooey. It was super cute at times, but at the same time, it made me furious. Norah wasn’t very likable. She was often rude and annoying. Nick, on the other hand, was very likable and sweet.
At times I thought to myself, “Is this really happening?!” because there were so many absolutely ridiculous scenes. Although they did add humor, they were often cringe-worthy and I could feel myself experiencing secondhand embarrassment for the characters!
Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist was short, sweet, and slightly irritating. I would recommend it to those looking for a quick romantic read, but if you are looking for something more serious and, well, not full of cussing and insta-love, look elsewhere.
The only reason I rated this a book a 3 and not 2 or 1 is that there were some great parts that made you think and feel and really brought out the feeling of being young and in love.
We sit in silence for a second. She takes a drag. She’s cinematic and I’m a fucking sitcom. The silence doesn’t bother her at all, but it freaks the hell out of me. So I do what I always vowed not to do, and I always found myself doing anyway. I throw “I miss you” into the breach.
