I’m glad I listened to this book instead of read it. I don’t think the format would work for me on the page, but it did in audio. With that said, I enjoyed the book to a point, but wasn’t blown away by it like many others were. I feel the author did an amazing job creating the characters and the entire history of a band. But it just seemed like I was listening to a “behind the music” type documentary. Predictable seems like a strong word with a negative connotation. I think “nothing surprised me or strayed from the obvious” may fit a bit more. Again, it seemed like it was a real-life documentary of a band from that era. Not an insult at all since it can’t be easy to create that from thin air, while at the same time, I’ve experienced it all before with real-life bands.
What this book has accomplished is that it makes me want to read more from the author. If she can write a book like this, I’m really interested to see what she can create with other storylines and characters.
