Juliet, Naked by Nick Hornby
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Annie's live is humdrum boring. She works at a museum in a seaside town in England. She lives with her equal dull boyfriend Duncan. Then one day everything changes when Duncan's Favorite musician Tucker (who has been a recluse for 20 years) releases an acoustic version of his most popular album. Annie writes a review of the album and before she knows it she is corresponding with the elusive Tucker himself and breaking up with Duncan. Now she is about to meet Tucker and taking risks she never would have taken before. Duncan must come to terms with his idol having clay feet and Tucker will face some of the demons from his past.
Nick Hornby is at his best when he is writing about relationships and music. And this book is as much about our relationships with each other as it is about our relationship with music. And in true Hornby style there is no happily ever after but a bunch of people who learn and grow and move forward in life.
