4.0 out of 5 stars A fairly gripping read!, 18 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good read, overall. Went on about Cormoran's prosthesis virtually every page, which didn't add to the plot. A slow start, but an exciting finish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous read, 3 July 2013
Well, I thoroughly enjoyed this book, from start to finish. I am a freelance musician, myself, and so much of this account rang true for me - the highs and lows of being on tour, and there were so many parallels between the present day and the past. Gareth Davies writes in a very approachable style, and gives a real insight into what it's like to be making real music with world-renowned conductors. Fascinating stuff. It is all so personal, too - you see the harder sides to orchestral life - separation from the family, illness and bereavement, written in an honest way. A non-musician would also find it a fascinating insight into the rather unorthodox life of a musician, I am sure. Well worth getting.
