The Book - [High Fidelity]

Just finished this book several days ago. A great one. Even better than the movie. I think everyone should read it.

The book is about a 36-year old man who was struggling with his love life. He owns a not-so-successful boutique music store and has difficulties with commitment. When his g/f recently left him, he starts to re-think the whole thing about dating and relationships. The book is outrageously funny and it gives you a genuine glimpse of a middle age man's mind when it comes to love, marriage, and relationships.

The name of the book has two meanings: first, Hi Fi is a term frequently used when talking about music, and the book has plenty of music reference. Secondly, the book is about the true confession of a man. It's so real and it makes me chill sometimes. You know what, I take my words back. I don't think this book is for everyone, especially not for girls. This book gives away too many secrets about how men think. It makes us, men, even less special and mysterious.

All in all, I rate this book 5 out of 5.

I gotta try it then :) I guess I am into books/movies that are not for girls. The best thing to make me feel nausea is an episode of Sex & The City...Wait, maybe I am not "mature" enough? How come I like Harry Potter... hoho
