Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist
Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist | David Levithan, Rachel Cohn
The sexy, funny roller coaster of a love story from David Levithan and Rachel Cohn, which inspired the beloved film starring Michael Cera and Kat Dennings. Nick and Norah are both suffering from broken hearts. So when Nick sees the girl who dumped him walk in with a new guy he asks the strange girl next to him to be his girlfriend for the next five minutes. Norah would do anything to avoid conversation with the not-friend girl who dumped Nick, and get over the Evil Ex whom Norah never quite broke up with. And so she agrees. What follows is an epic first date between two people who are just trying to figure out who they want to be and where the next great band is playing. This story plays out over one unforgettable night in New York. One of the great YA novels about falling in love, for everyone who had their hearts broken by Rainbow Rowells Eleanor & Park or Jandy Nelsons Ill Give You the Sun. David and Rachels other collaborations include Naomi and Elis No Kiss List and The 12 Days of Dash and Lily. David Levithan is the New York Times best-selling author of Boy Meets Boy, Every Day, and Another Day. His many collaborations include Will Grayson, Will Grayson with Fault in Our Stars author John Green. Tiny Cooper from Will Grayson, Will Grayson, now has his own novel: Hold Me Closer: The Tiny Cooper Story. David is also a highly respected childrens book editor, whose list includes many luminaries of childrens literature, including Garth Nix, Libba Bray and Suzanne Collins. He lives and works in New York. Rachel Cohn was born in Maryland but now also lives in New York. Among her many YA novels are Gingerbread, Shrimp, and Cupcake.

I thought I had watched the movie version years ago… turns out I had it confused it with Scott Pilgrim vs the world. Anyway, it was cringy but fun because I saw so much of my 17-19 year old infatuated self in this. Yikes! #book91of2022

“I know this is going to sound strange, but would you mind being my girlfriend for the next five minutes?”

A short, fluffy little palette cleanser! I‘m a sucker for a book that takes place in the span of one night/day. The movie is hilarious! I love Kat Dennings, she‘s a goddess!!

Gonna be honest I read this mainly because I wanted to read Nick and Noel‘s Christmas Playlist and had never read this one or watched the movie. I felt pretty meh about this book overall. Not horrible but just kind felt like “that‘s it?” 🤷🏻‍♀️

NYC, a shy-turned-steamy romance, the music scene, characters that are simultaneously quirky *and* cool... there are so many elements of Nick and Norah‘s Infinite Playlist that Teen Alli would have thought were great. Somehow, she missed the boat on this one back in high school, but I finally read it and discussed with Sarah from Smart Bitches Trashy Books on my podcast and it was a ton of fun! 🎼 Link to listen in bio!

This was a reread, and I remember thinking I enjoyed both the book and the movie, which are pretty different. This reminded me that the book is in fact better, by a lot. It's a great YA set over the course of one night. Wouldn't recommend if your sensitive to language or profanity.

This was the moment I decided for sure I hated this book. Patti Smith is a fucking legend. Norah was insufferable and Nick wasn‘t much better. The only good character in the book was NYC. If not for the fact that I‘m so looking forward to going back there in November, I‘d have hated this completely. Also, it‘s billed as YA and it had more unnecessary profanity than any adult novel I‘ve ever read. Maybe the movie will be better.

No. They wanna hold your hand. They have such a feeling that they can't hide. Every single successful song of the past fifty years can be traced back to 'I Wanna Hold Your Hand.' And every single successful love story has those unbearable and unbearably exciting moments of hand-holding.

I really debated between four and five stars for this. Overall, I loved it. Nick and Norah are great characters. Messy and stupid and young and clever and funny. I watched the movie first, which I hardly ever do, and it really doesn‘t do the book justice. Tris, in particular, got the short end of the stick. She‘s fantastic. I didn‘t like the whole “straight edge” thing, and I found it unnecessary. Continued in comments.

Krisjericho Overall, though, this captures teen angst and meeting someone new that you are interested in in a way that I have rarely seen done this well. Also, the audio book is great. The narration is done by two people, and Norah‘s is good, but Nick‘s is amazing. Spot on. 4y

4/5 Stars. I picked up this book, because i love the movie. This book was good, and I read it in one sitting. It was a good short story, and I enjoyed the back and forth between the two main characters told from the two different authors.

As soon as I heard the song this movie instantly popped into my mind! I watched it in middle school with my mom, and through searching I found it has a book! How cool 😁 and I absolutely love Patti Smith #BecauseTheNight #MarchIntoThe70s @Cinfhen @Lizpixie

Cinfhen I NEED to read this book and watch the film. Thanks for putting it back on my radar 😍🤩 4y
gradcat This reminds me of the old “Thin Man” movies with William Powell & Myrna Loy—their character‘s names were Nick & Nora, they had a little dog named Asta, and (this is the best part) the story was by Dashiell Hammett! 4y

This was one of the rare occasions where Ive watched the movie before I read the book so I already knew what was going to happen, or so I thought. The movie took very few things from the book, probably in an attempt to make it more marketable to younger viewers and stretch a relatively quick read into a crazy and unpredictable adventure. All in all, I liked both.

“I‘m winding through the Lower East Side now, on the streets that have names and not numbers. The night is still very much young here, hipster congregants exhaling their smoke from sidewalk #square to sidewalk square. I find a parking space on the darker side of Ludlow, then convince Norah to retrace Jessie‘s steps until we‘re in front of a pink door.

Ich hab es bei #Tauschticket angefordert, weil ich es in so guter Erinnerung hab. Dazu, also es mir zu „kaufen“ statt zu leihen, war ich quasi deswegen gezwungen ?, weil meine Bücherei es ausgelistet/-sortiert hat.

(Dass _ich_ mal ein Buch zweimal lese… ? Kam bei „Der satanarchäolügenialalko-höllische Wunschpunsch“, „Fool On The Hill“ und „Die Frau des Zeitreisenden“ vor. „1984“ zählt nicht, da Klassiker. ?)

SO. MUCH. NOSTALGIA!!! Super fun book for anyone who's ever spent a night in NYC at a skeevy bar watching a band & getting swept up in it all! So basically, most of my 20s. ? I love the B&Ts making fun of themselves & the references to Maxwell's in Hoboken (I B&T'd it in reverse), the Virgin Megastore, The Strand! Points off for overuse of the word "bitch" but that's personal. Similar to the film but they can stand on their own.

I'M STILL WAITING FOR MY GRAFTON BOOK! Don't you judge me!!!! ? I loved this movie so I'm going to give the book a shot! The funniest part of the film is realizing how movie magic works and that they picked better looking bathrooms than the ones in the actual clubs!!!! I can't recall where they were, maybe the Bowery or a place by the Bowery and I told my husband, "Uh, that is NOT the ladies room!" ?

It‘s been ages since I have read Nick & Nora, but it was a great read. And while Eleanor & Park isn‘t specifically about music, music is a big part of what brought them together.

I shouldn't want the song to end. I always think of each night as a song. Or each moment as a song. But now I'm seeing we don't live in a single song. We move from song to song, from lyric to lyric, from chord to chord. There is no ending here. It's an infinite playlist.

1. I don‘t know that I have a favorite but I really enjoyed Nick and Norah‘s Infinite Playlist.
2. U2
3. Best concert—1989, Eric Clapton outside the walls of the Old City in Jerusalem. I stood right in front of the stage and it was AMAZING.
4. Really depends on my mood but most days anything by U2. (When I‘m cranky or angry, it‘s Rage Against the Machine and/or Green Day)

Yesterday I watched the film for Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist. First, I can't believe the film is almost 10 years old! The movie was cute, but I loved the audiobook. I thought all the characters were more relatable in the book. I also found that while the novel described teen sexuality, the movie sexualized teens - the teens had more ownership of it in the story. I've got two more #BookvsMovie reviews in the works, and I #blameitonLitsy. #ya

hyperhawk I liked the movie and just found the book I plan to read it soon 5y
readinginthedark I've been on the fence about whether or not to read this one, but you've convinced me! 5y
AmandaL @blkzero1 I can't wait to see what you think of the book! 5y
AmandaL @readinginthedark If you like New Adult romance, you'll like this book. And if you happen to listen to the audiobook, the male narrator is the same guy who read the part of the husband, Nick, in Gone Girl. This Nick was a lot more likable. 😁 5y
readinginthedark Good to know! New Adult is hit or miss for me, so I might need to think about it some more before deciding. 5y

This was highly enjoyable as an #audiobook. The narrators made Nick and Norah's romance come alive and it was lots of fun to listen to. Although it's listed as YA, the way the sexual content and explicit language was handled read more like new adult fiction to me.

Thought the book would be as good as the movie -- I was wrong. The dialogue was the best part -- lots of witty banter between the two characters. Other than that, the story was pretty boring and a little all over the place. Just watch the film.
