Neil Peart.........The Author
on 28 October 2005
Art to me is about emotion.
I have read all three of Mr Pearts books to date, they are widely differing in subject matter. But they do have a common thread running through them, that of exposing the true emotions and feelings of a very private man.
With this book I found it to be far lighter than the previous books. I liked the mix of scenery/event discription, remenisences and as a music lover, the opions from a fellow music lover of his tastes. Some of the music he listened to on the journey was pretty obscure,and much not so. This intrigued me, so I bought several of the albums. Some of it I loved some of it I didn't, but it has introduced me to some music that I may never have discovered on my own. I get the feeling that sharing his musical tastes in this way was very much the point he was aiming at with this book, and I think any serious music listener can appreciate that.
Neil Peart's emotions stirred my emmotions, so that means that this book is not just entertainment to me..... it is art!
