Would you listen to The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto again? Why?
I just finished the book " The magic strings of Frankie Presto" by Mitch Albom. I think musicians would really enjoy it. Every chapter begins with a little music lesson on a musical theory term and how it relates to his life at the moment in the book. Oh and it was a full cast of characters which I loved as I listened. He included real music artists in the book and wove them into "Frankie's" life, they each told a little story on how "Frankie" affected their life in a positive way, it was very cool the way Mitch Albom did it. Then at the end he explained how HE knew each of those artists and what was real with their parts of the story. He even talked about the real places that he's been to and people he met there that he wrote about for Frankie's life. Frankie is fictional but I love how Mitch weaved real events, places and people in and out of Frankie's life. When I talk, make comments and laugh as the story unfolds and cry out loud, it's a really good story. :)
What about the narrators’s performance did you like?
I liked the full cast of characters! that was awesome!!

I made an attempt to read this book shorty after it was written and couldn't get through it. I love Mitch Albom, have read all of this books more than once, but found it hard to adjust to this writing style. After listening to it though, I would say it's one of his best fictional characters. A well developed story, memorable characters, and just plain fun to listen to. Very well done!
