I really wanted to love this book, and by all measures, I should have; I love music, I’ve enjoyed reading oral histories, I loved 7 Husbands. But I couldn’t bring myself to care about this story or these characters. The narrative format didn’t do enough to make me feel like I knew the characters behind a single dimension.  At some points I found myself thinking, I’d love this if it were about a band I actually knew. I read this quickly to finish it and move on. 

Hoping the show will be more fun, as we’ll be able to at least hear the songs from the book.
