Really enjoyed listening. A world famous rock star's life is transformed by a fan who is determined to turn his life around through the power of God. There is a murder, a trial, a love story, and of course Ev's redemption. The work is heavy with Christianity, which was fine with me. Looking forward to listening to the sequel FULL TILT.

Audiobook provided for an honest review.

Great Story, flat, one dimensional performance

Where does Dark Star: Confessions of a Rock Idol rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

In the middle somewhere.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes. Great story.

Would you be willing to try another one of Troy Klein’s performances?

Only because of the author's storytelling. Troy is very one dimensional and shows a very narrow range of intensity and emotions. Their were virtually no pauses between scenes that took me a while to figure out things had changed.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Redemption comes with a price.

Any additional comments?

Troy is not very good.
