I only discovered Nick Hornby this year so I have a lot of catching up to do. I love writers who can make me laugh and Hornby's writing is so much fun. This book is about four people who planned to commit suicide by jumping off a building at the same time and place, only things don't exactly go as planned. Give Hornby a try. You won't be disappointed.

Nick Hornby's books lend themselves to the big screen. When I read his books, I imagine a British accent in my head.
