Thank you for a wonderful review. I really enjoyed the way you were able to provide a comprehensive critique while also adding elements of humour at the same time. While I prefer stories with a solid storyline, I also find it beneficial to gain insight into other people's lives - particularly ones that are so removed from our own. The music is an interesting concept and sounds like it played an important role in the overall enjoyment of this book, in addition to the quotes.

That was a really good review on a book that was not an easy read by any stretch of the imagination. I am glad the music made up for some of the disappointing aspects of the story.

I noticed dark themes in this book (i.e., drugs and sex) which could make the other readers run miles away. I have not decided whether I'll pick this book up to read or just bypass reading it. I'll decide after reading the first ten pages of this book. Thanks for sharing your review.
