Patchy but overall a good read - but best for musicians
on 5 May 2013
Generally a good read, maybe more enjoyable for musicians who would understand/appreciate the fine musical detail more than I would, but despite that I enjoyed it. There were some parts where the story hardly seemed to be developing and I nearly gave up, but I persevered and was rewarded by an overall great read.
Unfortunately (!) not that many scenes of debauchery although certainly the hero has frequent thoughts about sex, but then what musician doesn't - or indeed any other male! The 'hero' did not seem to be a pleasant fellow at all though I suppose that in order to be the best at one's work, one frequently has to be fairly self-centred. However it seems his heart was in the right place after all and despite his arrogance he was not really so self-centred as it seems and in the end helps save the world - as indeed most heroes do.
