Publisher's Summary

The unabridged, downloadable audiobook of Nick Hornby's touching tale Juliet, Naked, read by Jennifer Wiltsie, Bill Irwin and Ben Miles.
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, fell-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.


What the Critics Say

"He should write for England." (Observer)
"Hornby writes with a funny, fresh voice which skewers male and female foibles with hilarious accuracy." (Guardian)

"Hornby's best novel to date" (Spectator)
"Sharply funny, touching" (Daily Telegraph)
"Pitch-perfect" (Observer)

Awesome reading (listening)

Nobody has the skill like Nick Hornby to describe normal people and their un-normalities. It's like he has a deep respect for the very human stuff. Really enjoyed this story, its characters and the language. Made me laugh out loud, as well as think about the concept of wasting time.

Beautiful book

Hornby is a first-class writer and this book didn't disappoint. It was sweet and wry and full of lots of humor - a lot of it based on UK/US differences. Some other reviewers said they thought the book lost its way a little when Tucker appeared, but I thought it continued to be interesting as it explored his life. I laughed out loud a couple of time and have listened to the book twice. Love it!
