Not the autobiography I was hoping for, Chronicles Volume One has some interesting tales of Bob Dylan and his brushes with music legends. Though, Sean Penn did an excellent job of reading the work, I found Dylan?s prolific use of similes and metaphors almost comical. I haven?t heard the word ?like? used this much since the movie ?Valley Girl.? I wish I had counted how many comparisons he made in this book.
He was talking about writing music and said ?music was covering the floor like shot rabbits.? Shot rabbits? What the heck does that mean? Oh well, the book has some entertainment value, but I doubt I will read volume Two.
In typical Dylan-esque ?reading this book was like riding a tricycle in a river of molasses with eagles pecking at my head.?
