"The Catcher in the Rye for those who read Catcher when they were Holden's age." You Can Make Him Like You gets tnb'd. And likes it. A lot.
Big, humbling and overwhelmed thanks to Nik Korpon and The Nervous Breakdown for their killer review of You Can Make Him Like You. It left us feeling quite warm inside. And a little weepy. Drinks on us, for sure, when next we cross paths.
"Comparisons to High Fidelity--the film, specifically--are bound to turn up, and they aren't inaccurate. There's the Chicago setting, the good clubs, good bands, good films. But You Can Make Him Like You is, I think, the book High Fidelity could've been, wanted to be. Where Rob Gordon uses all of the references to deflect real life in High Fidelity, Keith fluently speaks pop culture, uses them as a means to find his way through the process of becoming an adult and a father."
