Vicky and Ivo G. recommend...

High Fidelity is a book by Nick Hornby that shows the life of a thirty five year old man whose girlfriend left him for the guy who used to live on the upper floor. He remembers all of his bad break-ups and tries to find connections between them to understand what's wrong with him. He meets all of his "five worst break-ups" girls and this changes his perception of relationships. On top of that his ex-girlfriend's dad dies and this makes him even more confused.

It's a book about music, relationships, love and dreams about the future that will make every girl a little more competent on boy's view on life.
