About book: I loved this book. I found myself laughing out loud in places - there is something about the sense of humour in his writing that really chimes with mine. And I often found myself smiling at things that I recognised from my own experiences, or at the little ironies in the story. I finished the book within a day, something I don't normally do (I like to read a book over a few days, so I can stretch out the enjoyment), but something I also did with the last Nick Hornby book I read. There is something about the way he writes that I find engaging, and it's easy to get swept up into the story.I love books about music and musicians, so I found the premise of this book promising, and at first it did not disappoint. The characters were well written and believable, and the story was set up in an engaging way. However towards the end I did feel that the story drifted a bit - where there ought to have been a climax it seemed to lose a bit of its momentum, and I found the ending a little disappointing. Only enough to knock one star off my review though. I highly recommend reading this book! As usual, I enjoyed Hornby's (fictional) mixing of famous and non-famous characters. I also hoped to love this book in the way I loved Almost Famous, in that there are bands/singers I adore and can't get enough of, and sometimes daydream about meeting them in person. But, for some reason, this one just didn't take off for me as much...I suppose the Tucker Crowe character was too flawed, and the Annie character was too perfect in her strength and resolve.Either way, it's a fun read, I just didn't fall in love with it the way I have with some of Hornby's other books.

Would have given 4 stars if not for the last 15 pages. Just felt disjointed.

I like Hornby though there were overlaps in style to High Fidelity.

Couldn't put it down and much better than A Long Way Down.
