1.0 out of 5 stars Total disappointment, 15 July 2014
This book is really bad. I enjoyed The Cuckoo's Calling and was waiting for this one to come out, and it's a total disappointment.

As others have said, the murdered character is so unlikable you don't care who killed him. The other characters are cliched and weak. The publishing industry bits are boring and the parts describing the murder are just totally disgusting.

Had to struggle to finish it and will definitely wait and read reviews before buying any more in this series, should there be any.

5.0 out of 5 stars really lovely illustrations, 27 Oct 2012
This review is from: The Wild Woods (Paperback)
My 18-month old daughter absolutely loves this book. She loves the pictures and spotting the little squirrel. She wants to look at it and have it read to her more than any of her others.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent, 24 Nov 2010
Just bought this book and it's great. V interesting how much musicians' surroundings influenced their work (so obvious in bands like The Smiths, Joy Division, Blur) and this book is great for that- tells you which schools and council flats they were brought up in, what lyrics were about their home towns etc
Also liked the album cover shots- where and how they were taken and stories behind them.
I found out one of my favourite songs (Mad World) was written five minutes away from where I'm sitting now, as well as the stories behind the songs about places like Primrose Hill and nearby (for me) Solsbury Hill. Slightly disheartened to learn that Ray Davies didn't actually write Waterloo Sunset about Waterloo.

Also made me want to check out bands I hadn't bothered with before, such as Half Man Half Biscuit who sound hilarious.

Great for those `did you know...' moments in the pub.
