In Brian Paone's first novel, he chronicles the trials and tribulations of befriending a modern-day rock star. As a die-hard fan of the rock band God Lives Underwater, Brian wins the trust of lead singer David Reilly. This honor comes with its own set of extreme personal highs and devastating shared lows.
During their tumultuous friendship, David fights an extreme battle with drug abuse and depression. Pile on top of all this the throes of a cutthroat music industry and the realization of one's own mortality.
Dreams Are Unfinished Thoughts is a novel that convinces the heart of every listener that perhaps dreams are never really finished. Instead, they are passed on from one friend to the next.

From Idol to Friend to Family
The depths at which the author/narrator was willing to plumb his experiences and share them with the listener
It would be easy to say David or Brian, as they're interactions are so stark throughout the book, but I would choose Seven. Seven's barely glanced life provides one of the deepest tragedies within the entirety of the book and the unraveling of what really happened to her and how each layer of this affected David is engrossing.
There are bits of audio clipped from radio interviews, shows and recorded material that would not transpose to a printed format
Bringing an idol to earth
Imagine meeting an idol and they don't just treat you as a fan, but instead allow you into their life.
This story is a glimpse into the Industrial Music Industry, combined with the in-depth story behind the Lead Singer of the band God Lives Underwater, while also delving into an abstract view of the affects of addiction and the musical growth of Brian Paone.
If you have ever been into industrial, known some one afflicted with addiction or even interested in the story of a fan getting to know and befriend an Idol this is worth your time. I would suggest listening to it, not just for Brian's smooth voice, but for the music, recorded audio and other nuances that make this so engrossing.
Too drawn out
