the depths of his heart

What made the experience of listening to They Made a Monkee Out of Me the most enjoyable?

Davy's voice was always distinctive, and in this you hear not only his lovely tones, but his lovely soul.

What did you like best about this story?

Davy narrating about his reconciliation with Micky Dolenz, and how he developed so much more respect for him after that.

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

Both laughed and cried. A picture developed of a man who trusted people, trusted the world, and was frequently abused for it, and whose talent was enormous.

Any additional comments?

Peter Tork said that the saddest thing about Davy's passing was that most would never know the depth and breadth of this man's heart, that Davy was the most heartfelt man he'd ever known. This book, and Davy's voice narrating it, reveals that heart.

Good listen!!!!

This is a great book! Even though it's short, Davy gets straight to the point and tells his story. No real shocking details, but a fun "read."
