Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist - David Levithan, Rachel Cohn 3.5 Stars
Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist is an adventure around New York, where two strangers are thrown together in the strangest of circumstances, and find exactly what the other needs. Nick and Norah are both realistic, they share the same fear, disappointment and anxiety that all of us have experienced at one point in our lives. While Nick is a romantic and lyrical, Norah lacks confidence in who she is and what she has to offer the world. They're both lost, and learning to be independent after recently failed relationships. It's fast paced, loud and wonderfully offensive. I loved the quick wit and intelligence.

But it just seemed unoriginal. The characters weren't as engaging as Dash and Lily, which follows the same humorous, adventure romance format, but there is something said for two authors to collaborate for the story to flow seamlessly.

I can't help but wonder if Cohn, Levithan and John Green all attended the same creative writing course, the quirky character's are all mirror images of one other, Paper Towns and Looking for Alaska follow the same adventure based theme, and all have open endings which allow the reader to create their own happily ever after. Obviously the format works.
