Another nice trivia collection

I really enjoy reading these short trivia books between longer works. This one is no different. I have read a lot of rock history but still learned new items and was reminded of other facts. Good book to breeze through.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Band Trivia and Album Recommendations

Rock Trivia Madness is an enjoyable, quick rollick through four decades of rock and alternative music. It basically has a format of chronologically selecting a band, telling a interesting fact or two about the band before moving on. Most bands don't get revisited, because there is too many in so little time, but occasionally one does get a second go around.

Because there is only one or two facts per band, it is not a great way to get a feel for the bands or to learn about them in depth. But it is a good book to get a strong overview of the decades and how music changed. It also should pique some interest about bands you may not have known of before.

The last third of the book starts again at the 60's and gives album recommendations. Each album is suggests (and it acknowledges it cannot cover even a small amount of the best) comes with a brief history of it and why it is included in the list. Not comprehensive, and not always agreeable, it is an interesting list with a lot of recommendations or reminders, depending on how versed you are in the albums. The trivia associated with each is interesting, especially if you know the album but not the history.

Like all the Bill O'Niell trivia books, this is broken up by some quick trivia and some multi-choice tests, to see how you are going. This breaks it up and make the listener do a little bit of work.

Narration by Scott Miller is good. Clear and easy to follow he engages with the text. He is easy to listen to. I would be happy to listen to more of his work.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
