From the beloved New York Times– bestselling author, a quintessential Nick Hornby tale of music, superfandom, and the truths and lies we tell ourselves about life and love. Annie loves Duncan—or thinks she does. Duncan loves Annie, but then, all of a sudden, he doesn’t. Duncan really loves Tucker Crowe, a reclusive Dylanish singer-songwriter who stopped making music ten years ago. Annie stops loving Duncan, and starts getting her own life. In doing so, she initiates an e-mail correspondence with Tucker, and a connection is forged between two lonely people who are looking for more out of what they’ve got. Tucker’s been languishing (and he’s unnervingly aware of it), living in rural Pennsylvania with what he sees as his one hope for redemption amid a life of emotional and artistic ruin—his young son, Jackson. But then there’s also the new material he’s about to release to the world: an acoustic, stripped-down version of his greatest album, Juliet— entitled, Juliet, Naked. What happens when a washed-up musician looks for another chance? And miles away, a restless, childless woman looks for a change? Juliet, Naked is a powerfully engrossing, humblingly humorous novel about music, love, loneliness, and the struggle to live up to one’s promise. Watch a Video

3.0 Ironische Geschichte mit romantischem Schmalzabsturz zum Ende
Wie ich schon mehrmals in einigen Rezensionen erwähnt habe, halte ich Nick Hornby für einen großartigen Starter von Romanen, die wenigsten Autoren können so gut unvermittelt und auch mit ein bisschen beißender Ironie eine Geschichte beginnen, aber auch für einen der schlechtesten Finisher im Literat...

3.0 Juliet, Naked
This book has some of that old Hornby vibe (High Fidelity, About a Boy) but still suffers from the lack of inspiration and attempt to be moralizing.It had the potential to be great - nice plot, promising characters, Hornby's take on music - yet failed to reach it, unfortunately. Still, there are som...

These two act like everyday normal boring couple. Yet there seems to be problem underneath it all.2. What a ...

4.0 Ridiculously well said. Again.
I didn’t know, not right from the start anyway, that Juliet, Naked would be about impossible / “can't live with or without” relationships in the context of a perpetual teenage mentality, where your favourite songwriter’s preferred.. I don’t know.. ice cream flavour matters, even though you're over 3...
