The originality and fun spilling over in Hornby's acclaimed debut, High Fidelity (1995), run deep and strong through this second novel, as a playboy pretends he's a single dad so he can date single moms, but finds his fantasies warped by the real needs of an unusual 12-year-old boy. Set for life in London with royalties from a sappy Christmas song his father wrote, Will Lightman does.

In the case of ABOUT A BOY, the first two acts of the book and the film are identical, while the resolution is a bit more of a broad comedic note in the film. I think what appeals to me most about Hornby's writing is his ability to create comedy through dialogue by making the characters so different from one another that they may as well be speaking different languages

Topics London-based writer Nick Hornby's second novel, About A Boy, divides its time between two male misfits: Will, a 36-year-old bachelor, and Marcus, an eccentric, introverted, bullied 12-year-old. Never having to work thanks to the royalties from his father's Christmas novelty-song hit, Will has a lot of time on his hands. Most of this is spent smoking pot, following what the rest of the world. Movie Review. Things that are shallow. The Florida Everglades National Park after a two month drought. A backyard pool dug out by a 5-year-old armed only with a plastic shovel. A movie festival that only shows films directed by the Farrelly Bros. None of these things are as shallow as Will

g of age at middle age. Will Freeman is a thirty-six year old man who lives off the royalties of a song that his father wrote nearly seventy years ago. Will is commitment-phobic, so when he meets a single mother and discovers that this type of woman is just as reluctant to commit as he, he makes up a two-year old son so he can join a single parents.
A wise, hilarious novel from the beloved, award-winning author of Funny Girl, High Fidelity and A Long Way Down.

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. About a Boy movie was a good translation of the book but lacked some important details. The movie show perfect images given by the book but main points were not reached. The movie also seemed rushed and just speed across the deep situations that needed more explanation and more focus
I think I smiled all the way through `About a Boy,' a comic near-masterpiece derived from the best-selling novel by Nick Hornby. For the sake of accuracy, both the novel and the film should more rightly be titled `About TWO Boys,' since the story focuses not only on 12-year old Marcus, but on 38-year old Will, a man totally dedicated to the proposition that any man who so desires can live.
