"What came first, the music or the misery?

People worry about kids playing with guns, or watching violent videos, that some sort of culture of violence will take them over. Nobody worries about kids listening to thousands, literally thousands of songs about heartbreak, rejection, pain, misery and loss.

Did I listen to pop music because I was miserable? Or was I miserable because I listened to pop music?"

    I read it over a holiday and it became one of my favourite books ever. Also, it made me permanently thirsty for music :)

    I finally saw the movie a few days ago, and I went straight out and bought the book. Why did it take me so long?

    Movie needs more love, it's the best nerd flick ever. I'm not a vinyl fan but as a movie buff I can totally relate! Japanese imports, complete lack of respect for people who know less, large collections, it's all the same!

    I love the high fidelity book. I guess the movie wasn't that good comparing to the book, but, doesn't this always happen? About a boy movie was pretty boring.. What about a long way down book?

    the only hornby book i havent read yet is Slam i guess al3xandros ... but i still think "about a boy"s adaptation was really bad compared to the book :] btw add me up to the list of "record-shop-owner-wanne-bes" list ! :D

    wastingthedawn, I think about a boy was better a movie than high fidelity (deeper and truer to the feeling). But I think the opposite about the books. Maybe high fidelity was harder to adapt? I must buy Slam. Anyone read it?

    best nick hornby adaptation to screen.. avoid about a boy adaptation staring hugh grant... it has nothing to do with the original feeling of the book..
