Publisher's Summary

An audible biography of a great composer. Beethoven was a man who was born in poverty, never married, and raised a nephew who chose a less than happy path. As you listen you will learn who, among famous composers, helped him along as well as who saw Beethoven as a mentor. Deaf at the age of 30 this brilliant musician's life has its fair share of paradoxes. For all ages. Narrated by Glenn Hascall.

Absolute garbage!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

No one!

What was most disappointing about Harriette Brower’s story?

Beethoven's life in 18 minutes for one credit. What a ripoff!

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Wasted one credit on 18 minutes of superficial rubbish on Beethoven.
