Nick Hornby ☆ 4 Free download

Juliet, Naked Free download Á 104 Andom and the truths and lies we tell ourselves about life and love. It s funny writing a review of this book because in many ways I m Duncan the obsessed fan who puts the book s plot into motion Nick Hornby is something of a hero of mine I read a lot as a kid but sort of got away from it as I got older as it seems so many people do these days But then I read High Fidelity and it s like something lit up inside me I immediately devoured everything I could by Hornby which at the time wasn t much About a Boy and Fever Pitch and then moved onto authors that Hornby seemed to admire most notably Dave Eggers whose A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius further changed me When I finally met Mr Hornby years later I was utterly speechless I wanted to explain elouently of course the ways in which he d changed my life By reading writing thinking I became a well rounded person because of him But how do you fit that into 30 seconds of a book signing And do you even want to It s never good to meet your heroes either they end up disappointing you or you end up disappointing them But that knowledge doesn t put to rest the urge to tell them everything they mean to youSo I m well aware that the character of Duncan is a critiue of Hornby s own basest impulses as an avid music lover he s no doubt been in the position of the crazed fan than once in his day but I m also keenly aware that it is a critiue of people like me as well the once great fans of Hornby who now come onto the internet to poke holes in their hero s continued uest to make a living It s a little turnabout as fair play how can you criticize this book without sounding like the snivel y whining fanboy who is the book s biggest jokeBut I really don t have any great criticisms of this book It s been said that Nick Hornby is chick lit for men And I think there is some truth to that He s certainly not Salman Rushdie or Upton Sinclair writing about controversial topics aimed to bring about greater good for society He s simply a perceptive guy who has a talent for picking up on the little uirks that make life and pop culture so interesting And that s all I really want from his books I like smiling in recognition at my own uirks and flaws and those of the world around me Hornby s world Atlantic Ocean dividing them aside is the world I inhabit And I appreciate being surrounded by like minded people even if it s only on a pageThe greatest of these little truths that Hornby revealed in this book was the synthesis of art and musical art in particular I once wrote an essay for myself about an ex girlfriend I had in college Our relationship was a mess through and through we were constantly breaking up and getting back together and cheating on each other and breaking up againit was a typical college relationship in other words And I remember one summer day when we were broken up I was listening to a song that made me think of her It was a playfully wistful song about longing for a lost love called Maybe in an Alternate Dimension by a band called Ozma And as I listened to this song and sang along picturing my ex girlfriend and I being together again I smiled Not because I wanted her back but because I recognized even then the ridiculousness of singing a song of wistful longing for that particular girl She wasn t the one I knew that She wasn t worthy of songs of wistful longing She was just the girl that I was dating then and that s all she d ever be I had even tried to write a song for her when I still played with my band but they all came out wrong angry resentful She wasn t the type of girl who you wrote love songs aboutSo that made me think of the original subject of the song the one who had inspired the singer of Ozma to write the song in the first place Was she so special Did she deserve to have a wistful love song written about her by anyone Maybebut I m willing to bet it wasn t all peaches and sunshine Because it never is Songs love songs songs of wistful longing breakup songs they all exist in a vacuum They re almost never about a real person so much as an idealized version of a real person or an idealized version of a fucked up relationship Maybe the singer is singing about how much he loves the girl and where did he go wrong and all that but odds are he knew exactly where he went wrong by sleeping with a groupie in the back of a tour bus But nobody wants to sing along to thatAnd that s what Tucker Crowe represents in Juliet Naked He s an artist who becomes self aware enough to realize what a fraud he is He sees hundreds of people singing along to songs he wrote about a girl he really didn t even like all that much and it s too much for him I don t know that any rock star would really feel that way but it s certainly how we d like to see them and that s why Nick Hornby is so great He just gets it He gets me even though we ve only had one awkward stilted 30 second conversation And you could make the argument that maybe this book tied together a little too nicely and you could maybe nitpick that some of the characters were thinly sketched But I don t care I enjoyed the heck out of it So you can say what you want about this book or Nick Hornby as an author but I love his books and this was his best in a while He just gets it He really does
