I find the timeline of its plot very intriguing. It starts with conclusive information, and then we get to piece together the backstory with bits of information the author provides us. It would be an enticing read. Thank you for your detailed review.
You're welcome. I appreciate your comment.

This seems like an original, one-of-a-kind book, something very difficult to find nowadays. Thanks for the great review. I'll be sure to look into it, if only for the "musical book" aspect!
You're welcome. Hope you enjoy the book.

Wow a book written by a musician about a musician! Count me in. Your review is enlightening and makes me want to read the book immediately.
But the path I’ve chosen has always been the right one, and I wouldn’t have had it any other way. :)

I was impressed by your review. It is very thorough and detailed. Especially the descriptions about the characters and the formation of the book. Soup seems an interesting book with music and suspence in the same narrative. I have not read a music thriller before so I will try to check this out.

Scott is a great character who sacrifices for his family. Sacrifice for others is one of the ethical values in the service of human kind.

Thank you for a very informative review! A musical thriller is a break from the norm and could be quiet interesting. You mentioned the (influx of events from different dates very confusing) and so would I. I do enjoy a fast-paced book that flows well, but with the addition of the music, I think I would become distracted easily. It sounds like there is a very complex storyline that sucks you in, so I may have to try it! Thank you for giving me a different perspective on the book.

I know many who would enjoy the musical aspects of this book. It is not something I have come across before, and I am anxious to explore it.

Thanks for the review! You made a book I would have normally skipped right over, because I lack imagination at times, and made it one of the top on my, "want to read" list. I appreciate your review!

Wow great review. I like stories that tend to predict how the future will be influenced largely with technology. I'll add it to my reading list.
