Is there anything you would change about this book?
There is no rise in action or climax. The story is just like hearing about any person's life. In this case the person is an artist and in some ways the book describes an artists soul and the circumstances that help lead one person to public success in art and another to not realize his/her full potential.
Would you recommend The Song of the Lark to your friends? Why or why not?
It would depend on the person.
Have you listened to any of Pam Ward and Ken Burns (introduction) ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
Any additional comments?
There are some beautiful passages in this book, but I was told (and so expecting) a good explanation of the vocal artist. This is perhaps what some, but not most vocal artists experience I think. I never really liked the main character, she seemed aloof and superior. What kept me reading were the other characters in the book.
