This series transported me instantly to my ‘70s and ‘80s youth. Just reading the song titles that begin each chapter filled me with fond wistfulness and a bit of an ache. I remembered when up-and-coming musicians seemed to emerge more organically than today’s manufactured stars. Perhaps it’s nostalgia on my part, but it seemed the path to industry success was less formulaic.
And Tower Records! Who can forget the blockbuster retailer that allowed you to listen to songs before buying?
I felt all the angst of Daron’s evolution yet there was nothing cloying or sentimental about the writing. It’s tight. No wasted words. Strunk and White would be proud.
Teddy Hamilton is fantastic. I’m so glad he was the sole narrator. I loved all three of these audible books.
This is an essential continuation of Tan's fantastic rock and roll coming-of-age. Daron is still struggling with who he is and where he fits. Luckily, he has his music to express what he can't say in words.
