Without an actual soundtrack, the book managed to invoke emotions that a soundtrack is capable of by perfectly selected and well-placed song/artist mentions. I kept stopping the audio just to download songs.
When Tommy Mottola described being a teenager away at miltary school, missing his girlfriend and his only enjoyment coming from listening alone at night to the seagull introduction to the Tyme's "So Much In Love", it captures how, even as a kid, he had an instinctive ability to identify which of a song's details could yield immeasurable impact.
Chazz Palminteri's narration lent an element of authenticity and soul to the story.
Didn't want the book to end so I stretched it out.
Still can't get the lyrics to "Cherchez la Femme" out of my head...
