Songs for Beginners ~ Graham Nash
Songs for Beginners ~ Graham Nash

While not as musically inventive as Stephen Still's early releases nor as cosmic and laid back as Crosby's 'If I Could Only Remember My Name', Nash's first solo offering offers a more direct charm that the others could not match. While many write him off as the weakest link, it is easy to underestimate his commercial touch and amazing voice.

While there have been some negative reviews for this novel, it is only fair to state that this is only Christopher's first novel, and he has produced a thrilling read which betters much of his mother's present output. The book is well structured, and the characters are easy to relate to, particularly the transformation of the characters as they enter their teenage years, i.e. Brandon's homophobia and Stephen's own realisation about his own life. Rice's debut is a most enjoyable read, and I look forward to reading his follow up shortly!
