My thoughts and opinions on… “Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist”


I read the book “Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist” by two different authors. The two writers are named: Rachel Cohn and David Levithan. “Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist” had promise. However, it fell flat on its face.

“Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist” is a book about two teenagers. The teenagers are named Nick and Norah. The two meet each other one night at a concert in New York City. The two love music and love being in the night-life. You may think that means that the two are perfect for each other. Well, there are other things (or other people) that are in the middle of these two’s possible future.

Nick is in love with his ex-girlfriend named Tris. Norah feels too old at a young age. Her past relationship makes her feel marred… like she’s not like the other girls. Both characters must overcome the two’s baggage to truly be happy with one another.

Now, I have a few things to say about this book. The premise of this book is great. I like the idea of two kids trying to figure-it-out in the bright lights of the city amid a backdrop of melody and song. However, there were major problems with this book.

I strongly disliked the way this book was written. It was written in a long and meandering way. Levithan and Cohn did not write in a clear and in a decisive way. This book seemed more like a stylistic book; however, the book’s style did not make it better… it made it worse. I felt like I was in two people’s heads following along with their random thoughts and strange ideas. “Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist” was not a cohesive or strong story. It was a short book that felt way too long.

Honestly? I give this book a 2-star rating. I’m sorry to say this but you better skip this book if you have it on your TBR list.

Always with infinite love,
Selena London

  1. I don’t like books that are written just for the style instead of the plot, the characters, and even the setting. This was an honest review. Nice post.


  2. I read this book and I agree with your review. It isn’t something that I would like to read again.
