Update on "High Fidelity"

Well, the book was sitting around, and I hate not knowing the end of things I've already started (see under "Wheel of Time"...), so I'd read a chapter every now and then. I'm glad I did; starting from when he meets Charlie again, I couldn't put the book down. "High Fidelity" really is amazing, if you can tough it out through the first half without vandalizing random record stores because you despise Rob so much...

But I stand by what I said earlier. It is not "hilarious". Only one scene even approached hilarious, the one involving a flower garden. Anyone who thinks the book is hilarious needs to seriously rethink his sense of humor.
