High Fidelity Summary

Plot Summary

High Fidelity is a novel written in 1992 by the British author Nick Hornby. The story detail's Rob Fleming's struggles to cope from the break up of his relationship with Laura and his failing record shop. A major part of Rob's problem is his habit of replacing his real opinions and feelings for a series of lists. When he breaks up with Laura he makes a list of his top five relationships and goes on a mission to discover where he has gone wrong.

The book opens with Rob's top five break ups. The list includes Charlie Nicholson, Allison Ashworth, Sarah Kendrew, Jackie Allen, and Penny Hardwick.
