NICK HORNBY'S HILARIOUS INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER IS NOW A MAJOR FILM

'A comic delight' Evening Standard
_____________

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.

Loved It!

A lot of people that I know had different opinions on this book. Some people loved it and some thought it was terrible. I thought it was fantastic and hilarious from the very first line. Hornby knows his characters deeply and is so descriptive of feelings. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a funny, musical, love story.

Ok

The book starts great, it gives a false expectation it will be an incredibly smart and funny insight into the world of "die-hard" fans. Then, by Chapter Six, it morphs into a story like so many others: complicated relationships, midlife crises, people in therapy, unrequited love, couples breaking up etc etc ... Finishing the book felt quite a task.

Cover to cover

I was first introduced to books by Nick Hornby about 12 years ago, and I was hooked from the first chapter but it must be at least 5 years since I last took the time to enjoy a book. I started this yesterday morning and became so engrossed that I read it almost cover to cover, I forced myself to stop at the last chapter so I could enjoy it today.

Another great book Mr Hornby, thank you.
