I'm usually a huge sucker for this kind of science history, and I picked this audio book up on the basis of the narrator, who is one of my favorites...and I finished it only because I can do other things on the computer while half-listening. I'm not sure quite why I was so unengaged with it--the lack of pictures might have had something to do with it, although the lovely narrator should have made up for that--but it was just...blah.
Nick and Norah's unique views will draw you into their music painted world and make you want to be able to hear what goes on in everyone's mind. Nick is a straight member of a Gay punk band who recently broke up with his girlfriend of 6 months, whose ability to cause him pain is what leads him to Norah. Norah happened to be the cutest available girl he could find when he needed someone to be his girlfriend in front of his ex, Tris and her new and improved version of Nick. Norah is the daughter of a record company CEO and has recently turned down her acceptance to Brown to attempt to reclaim a lost boyfriend in a foreign country. This is just the beginning of the plot. Cohn and Levithan draw you in by switching the point of view of the book between Nick and Norah. They are constantly making hilarious references to many different things and it is interesting to see how each views the situation as they begin to fall for each other in their desprateness to forget the person that broke their hearts. You wont be able to put this down because of it's constant clever remarks and the flow of the sounds and movement of Nick and Norah's life and their ability to link everything to music and the story of how it's influenced their life. This book is especially easy to relate to because of the the unsureness of Nick and Norahs emotions in their thoughts, but the excitement of the actions they take. Norah:"The incidental fact of his straightness doesn't mean i want to be NoMo's five minute girlfriend, like I'm some 7-Eleven quick stop on his slut train. only because I am the one loser here who dasnt lost all her senses to beer, dope, or harmones do i have the sense to hold back my original instinct-to yell back "FUCK NO!" in response to NoMo's question"... Nick:"When Tris passes by me, it's like the world is no londer three-dimensional. The third dimension falls away, then the second, and all I am left with is one dimension, and that dimension is her. But of course there's another dimension, too, and that dimension is time, and it keeps going and Tris keeps walking and all the other dimensions come back, and even though there are now more, it feels like a whole lot less." Rachel Cohn was born in Silver Spring, Maryland, where she grew up. She Got the idea for the novel and told David Levithan that she wanted to write a book about two "straight-edge" kids meeting in a manhattan Club. Levithan would write Nick and She would write Norah. Levithan e-mailed Cohn the first story of Nick's and Cohn wrote back with Norah's point of view. She said there was never any plan and they just wrote it as it went along, through their night, like a real first date, because neither knew where it was going.
