    Have you read any other books about music that you'd recommend?

    Part of the reason I love "High Fidelity" so much is because Nick Hornby writes really well and can explain similar thoughts to the ones I have about music, life and love.

    And I was thinking that this group is the perfect place to ask this:

    have you read any other books about music similar to High Fidelity that you'd recommend? cause I could use some good lecture...

    And as an example I'll recommend you:
    "Stories we could tell" by Tony Parsons
    a book about growing up and being young, about sex and love and rock and roll, about the dreams of youth colliding head-on with the grown-up world.

    Powder by Kevin Sampson maybe?

    It's about music and it's kinda funny too. Nothing too deep, more like a beach read.

  • Rob Sheffields "Love is a mixtape" seems similar, though I haven't read it yet.

  • Another Nick Hornby you should definitely check out is "31 Songs". Its a novel which is basically 31(ish) essays about his favourite songs, and he muses about the artists, lyrics and the songs' experiences in his life. Its pretty interesting to read; and when I say essays, don't think they're dull.

  • Ketil Bjørnstad's - To Music is one of the books about music I read recently and loved..not so much for its story (though it's not bad) but for the atmosphere it creates!
    If you like piano and classical music it's a must!!! Tip: listening to classical music (the pieces referenced in the book) while reading it! <3

    go to the ocean,on a ship,wave goodbye to the waves and the frozen shit that was in your heart.so long.
    (it was twilight,at Carbon Lake...indeed.)
