Juliet, Naked | By Nick Hornby

Another winner from Mr. Hornby. Many of his books are made into movies for a good reason – he writes great stories. This one is set in a little seaside town in England where we meet an unmarried couple, Annie and Duncan. Duncan has an unhealthy obsession with an American musician who hasn’t recorded in ages. He blogs with a few others who feel the same way about the music and Annie just seems to go along with it – for years. One day they have an argument about the music which effectively ends their relationship and Annie actually starts writing to the artist online, without Duncan having a clue about what is going on. As is typical of Hornby’s writing, this is another intelligent book with great character development throughout.
