It all starts when Nick asks Norah to be his girlfriend for five minutes. He only needs five minutes to avoid his ex-girlfriend, who's just walked in to his band's show. With a new guy. And then, with one kiss, Nick and Norah are off on an adventure set against the backdrop of New York City - and smack in the middle of all the joy, anxiety, confusion, and excitement of a first date.
This he said/she said romance told by YA stars Rachel Cohn and David Levithan is a sexy, funny roller coaster of a story about one date over one very long night, with two teenagers, both recovering from broken hearts, who are just trying to figure out who they want to be - and where the next great band is playing.
Told in alternating chapters, teeming with music references, humor, angst, and endearing side characters, this is a love story you'll wish were your very own. Working together for the first time, Rachel Cohn and David Levithan have combined forces to create a book that is sure to grab readers of all ages and never let them go.
Okay I own this movie, but wanted to read the book first. (bookworm problems) So I went onto my libraries website and downloaded to their app, the audio book version of this. I normally don't listen to the audio book version of any book. I normally just have a hard time with it. This one was actually pretty good. I didn't have as hard of time with it with the two different voices reading it. I really liked how a guy read Nick's and a girl read Norah's. It just made sense to me. I wasn't a huge fan of the ending, or the F word that is constantly being uttered throughout the story. Less of that would be great. All in all a decent read and a good audio book.
