  Form Goodreads:   
It has been said often enough that baby boomers are a television generation, but the very funny novel High Fidelity reminds that in a way they are the record-album generation as well. This funny novel is obsessed with music; Hornby’s narrator is an early-thirtysomething English guy who runs a London record store. He sells albums recorded the old-fashioned way–on vinyl–and is having a tough time making other transitions as well, specifically adulthood. The book is in one sense a love story, both sweet and interesting; most entertaining, though, are the hilarious arguments over arcane matters of pop music. 

Hornby’s first novel, an international bestseller 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. 

 My review:
    Rob is ordinary man, he own and work in music-shop. He loves music. When Lora, his girlfriend left him he start to thinking about his love life and his ex girlfriends
What was wrong with him?
Which is the reason that every girl lefts him?
       He remembers for past girl friends and how they left him and why. However, when he finds that Lora has new boyfriend his mind is occupy with that.
       About Rob like character: He is good man; he does not know what he wants in his life. He is lost in his life.
       Lora is confused, but she decides to leave him after spending many things with him. Lora wants to make Rob to act, to do something in his life.
My opinion for this book is:

From IMDB:     
 Rob, a record store owner and compulsive list maker, recounts his top five breakups, including the one in progress.
My thoughts:
   In the movie, I do not like that Rob talks to cameras. When he does that, it seems to me like I don’t watching movie, but some monologue. In the movie acting some very popular actors, like:Catherine Zeta Jones, John Cusack, Tim Robbins. Characters from the book are well presented in the movie just like I imagined them even better. The all story from the book is great adapted with no missing thing.    
My opinion for this movies is:

Which means that I liked more the movie.
