Chronicals A Fascinating Era Of Music

If you could sum up Glam! in three words, what would they be?

glam, rock, intellectualism

Who was your favorite character and why?

This book is non-fiction, but I'm going to say David Bowie or Brian Eno anyway because I love them.

Have you listened to any of Joanna Hall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not listened to her performances before, but her voice is very pleasant.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It gave me a lot of the warm fuzzies (because glam rock is pretty much my favorite thing in the world) and I cried when it ended because I didn't ever want it to.
