The author reads his own book with real soul and humour, and the content itself is uplifting and moving. I especially enjoyed the timing and appropriateness of the soundbites and background music in parts. A beautiful listen.
What made the experience of listening to The Crowd, the Critic, and the Muse the most enjoyable?
I liked how Michael Gungor's personality comes out as he reads. He is an excellent writer and isn't afraid to let his quirkiness come out. He also takes creative liberties in this audiorecording by playing music and recordings from his past. It makes the book come alive in a more gripping way.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Crowd, the Critic, and the Muse?
One of the most memorable moments was when he talked about his first concert in a stadium. I am a musician so I know what the nervousness feels like. His account of it made the hair stand up on my arms.
What does Michael Gungor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
He brought his personality into the book and played music in the background, at times.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
This really isn't that type of a book.
Any additional comments?
This book is an incredible primer for doing further study as you try to establish yourself in your inherent creative potential. It certainly isn't a tell all end all book. There is SO much more that needs to be discussed. But it is a great start!
Struggled to get into this due to the religious references, which would be more palatable (even to a person of non-Christian belief or of no belief) were they not so frequent and crow-barred into the subject not neccessarily associated with it. The euphoric delivery of these passages, with accompanying mood music, is a little far removed from the world I inhabit and I ceased to listen. This is just my personal opinion, maybe if the life-enhancing, revalationary is your thing, you may enjoy it.
