Farming for Hipsters

Juliet, Naked by Nick Hornby is the best thing he's written since High Fidelity.  A cult favorite making fun of hipsters and over-enthusiastic/obsessive fans loses no irony on fellow hecklers.  I enjoyed the narrative even when I was frustrated by the characters, which is a good indication of how involved you become with said characters.  Engaging, thoughtful, humorous and not at all overly heartfelt or Lifetime Movie-ish, I found this novel to be a captivating look at seemingly unrelated lives coalescing into something greater than the sum of its parts.  If you are a fan of music trivia, excellent writing, and/or subtle humor, this book will most definitely have something for you to enjoy.
