5.0 out of 5 stars A really amazing book, 17 Feb. 2006
This review is from: Neutral Milk Hotel's In the Aeroplane Over the Sea (33 1/3) (Paperback)
This is an incredible book. I bought it out of curiosity, as I'm a big Elephant 6 and Neutral Milk Hotel fan, but what I got is a book that is a very good piece of journalism which tells a rich story about a sensitive genius and the extended group of friends around him who helped him realize the full potential of the truly amazing songs that he wrote. This book starts with the often-repeated story of the core members of the Elephant 6 collective (Jeff Mangum, Robert Schneider, Bill Doss and Will Cullen Hart), before branching off to focus on Neutral Milk Hotel. Ultimately, it gives a very in-depth (but not over-long) account of how the band, and then the album this book is at face value about, came to be. I'm not usually a very fast reader, but I read this book in about a day, and I kept on coming back to it after putting it down, which is very rare for me. This is because, unlike most books, this book doesn't waste a single word in telling it's story, and plus it all really happened, which makes it even better.
