Juliet, Naked

Juliet, Naked: A Novel Juliet, Naked: A Novel by Nick Hornby

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I don't remember which was the last Nick Hornby book I read was - must've been A Long Way Down, which seems like a long time ago. Didn't realize how much I'd missed his writing. His sense of people's insecurities and the way they act on them seems incredibly real to me.

Juliet, Naked is a story of fandom, an aging rock star struggling with his past, and a woman dealing with the direction her life has taken. It has a feel much like How to Be Good, and I can only hope that we see more like this from him soon.

Also: LOVE the cover design for the hardcover.
