I was a wee bit underwhelmed by Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan.
Maybe it's that I grew up in Montana where the most exciting night you can have involves Civil War Beer Pong and costumes or getting your truck stuck in a ditch. (This may be two sides of the same coin, although not with most of my friends.)
Maybe it's that I found Norah annoying but weirdly relateable?
Or maybe it's that I apparently don't know (or like???) enough "Punk" music?
I have no idea. I guess I just was expecting so much more. And it's been several years since I've seen the movie, but I really remember liking it quite a lot. So I'm not sure why the book just didn't do it for me. Although if I went back and watched the movie now, I'd probably be angry with things they changed. I guess there's no pleasing me. (But if you've been around, you know that's the case, haha)
