5.0 out of 5 stars A gem for your bookshelf, 30 Mar 2010
This review is from: The Impossible Dream: The Story of Scott Walker and the Walker Brothers (Paperback)
Unfortunately, I connected with the author after his masterpiece was finished but read the book with a critical eye, as I was fortunate enough to be Personal Assistant to Maurice King, manager of the famed Brothers. I thought it was brilliant. Reynolds' writing style is creative, expressive and pushes you forward into the story. I know the complex history and elusive facts pulled together must have been so difficult to research and I sincerely recognise these enormous efforts. The results go beyond anything else written on The Walker Brothers, as they tugged at my own memories to relive events, page after page.

I really had no idea poor Gary was thought of so poorly as a musician. I must have been distracted by his adorable personality and friendship, that lasts to this day. I know Maurice laughed at him, though smiled long enough to try to make money from The Rain.

I believe Reynolds captured so well Scott's personality, through the interviews. Not an easy thing to do, or express.

As far as I am concerned, this book is a shining star and does not compare with others previously written. This contains facts from legitimate sources and the picture overflows with vivid, colourful truths. The Impossible Dream was a pleasure to read and a book that stands alone for The Walker Brothers. You are gifted, Mr. Reynolds.
