I wanted so desperately to finish this book and find out what was going on with the overarching plotline, but I couldn't get over the droning lists of song titles. I appreciate the songs as metaphors and storytelling tools in themselves, but this was done WAY too much for my liking. I lost interest and even fast-forwarded a few times in hopes it was a passing faze of the book.
Perhaps I will try to read the physical book so I can easily skim some of the extensive playlists that gum-up the flow of the story. Know that this book does not do well in audio format (though the performer does a nice job, despite the content).
This is a book meant to be read, not listened-to.

An extraordinary journey through space & time & the history of 20th century American music and all the unnamed composers and performers who give voice to things we cannot express or perhaps even understand - but which matter deeply & compel us to keep searching.
