Description

Juliet, Naked is bestselling author Nick Hornby's moving, funny account of life's second chances

Annie's put fifteen years into safe, slightly obsessive Duncan, and now she'd like her money back, please. It's time to move on. But she lives in Gooleness, the north's answer to a question nobody asked. Is she really going to find real, proper, feel-it-deep-down-in-your-boots love on a damp and windy seafront? Or perhaps she should follow her heart and pursue Tucker, the reclusive American rock star, who keeps emailing her his smart advice.

But between Annie and her second chance lie a few obstacles. There's Malcolm, the world's most judgemental therapist, and Barnesy, the north's most extrovert dancer. There's what men and women will do and won't do for love. And, of course, there's Tucker. . .

Hilarious and tender, this bestselling novel will move you in ways both profound and surprising. It's Nick Hornby at his brilliant best. If you like David Nicholls, David Sedaris and Jonathan Coe you will love this book.

A really good read. I couldn't put it down. I loved the characters especially Annie, who realised that life is passing her by. Th flawed Tucker is good too. Also very funny. I think George Clooney would be great and Tara Fitzgerald if it ever came to the big screen.show more
by VIVIEN GARDNER
A really enjoyable novel, with all the classic momentum of other Nick Hornby novels. I found it difficult to put down and found myself neglecting the more exciting option of housework, to read on. Unfortunately, the next book I picked up has been shadowed by 'Juliet , Naked'. I think part two should be considered Nick.show more
