๏ ๏ ๏  My Thoughts ๏ ๏ ๏ 

I knew, going into this, that I would love it...I was not prepared for how much I would love this.  It's not just the full-cast narration...which I love, it's the story itself. it was really so much more than I thought it was going to be.  It is my favorite book of the year.

In the beginning, it had an Almost Famous vibe and I love that movie.  Then it just transitioned into this utterly fascinating story on the rise and fall of a rock band with characters that not only shined but felt like they really existed.  I loved the format but loved it even more so by the end of the book.  But damn, did it make me cry...and it was an ugly cry.
