Publisher's Summary

In celebration of its 20th anniversary, Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of High Fidelity by Nick Hornby, read by Russell Tovey.
Nick Hornby's first novel, an international best seller and instantly recognized by critics and readers alike as a classic, helps to explain men to women and men to men.
Rob is good on music: he owns a small record shop and has strong views on what's decent and what isn't. But he's much less good on relationships. In fact he's not at all sure that he wants to commit himself to anyone. So it's hardly surprising that his girlfriend decides that enough is enough.

High Fidelity Twenty (One) Years On

I own the paperback of this dating back to the mid 90s when it formed part of the "New Lad" zeitgeist. Although I have now read it at least twice, I thought that I'd give the audiobook version a whirl.

So, the plot: thirty something Rob Fleming, owner of an independent record Shop called 'Championship Vinyl' in Archway, North London, teaches a crunch point on his life when his live-in girlfriend, lawyer Laura leaves him. Cue, heartbreak, introspection and a whole load of 'top 5' lists in that typically male autistic way.

Russell Tovey is an appalling narrator; the worst I'd heard so far in my experience of Audible titles. He places pauses in the wrong places, his vocal cadence is all over the place and he's got a grating tone. I therefore will be avoiding all other titles narrated by him.

Warning: there's a fair amount of swearing in this book, more than I recall really. It's worth noting if you're playing the title out loud at home.

Great Story full of nostalgia

The book itself is a time (less) classic but narration a bit flat and lifeless
