So you’re a guy; you’re at a band show and your ex, the girl who dumped you, walks in with the new guy. Looking for a safe exit, you ask the girl you happen to sitting with to be your girlfriend for five minutes . You’re a girl; you’re at a get-together and your least favorite female strolls in. The stranger sitting next to you asks you to be his five-minute date. So what do you? You lock lips . Nick and Norah’s instant connect begins a roller-coaster “first date” that takes them through Manhattan and into themselves.
Nick & Norah made me want to fall in love. *sigh*
The fact that i finished it in less than 4 hours is proof that i cannot, could not, would not put it down. Just like that, i went from late-20’s mom to a 17-year-old girl who squealed and mushed over Norah’s predicaments in just one night!
So Nick & Norah hooked up in the most inconvenient (yet realistic) circumstances. What is supposed to be another night of sulking over his ex (for Nick) and another night of dragging a drunken best friend going home (for Norah) turned out to be one of the funniest, most romantic and unforgettable one-night-stands of their lives. And i’m not talking about sex (well, almost). *wink*
i didn’t mind the constant profanity. in fact, it fit right into the concept of bands, drinks and nightlife.
i love nick. i love norah. they are two opposites that really got lucky into meeting someone that just might be the right one for him/her.
ok, i’m rambling. but before i cut this short, lemme say that the Marriott scene is one of the hottest and funniest ones i’ve ever read. 😀
simply put, if you want a quick read that has a MAJOR swoon factor, read this.
