    In the wickedly bittersweet and hilarious You Must Go and Win, the Ukrainian-born musician Alina Simone traces her bizarre journey through the indie rock world, from disastrous Craigslist auditions with sketchy producers to catching fleas in a Williamsburg sublet. But Simone offers more than down-and-out tales of her time as a struggling musician: she has a rapier wit, slashing and burning her way through the absurdities of life, while offering surprising and poignant insights.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It passed the time - when I wasn't feeling confused about the sequence of events anyway.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    that's it?


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Alina Simone?

    I liked her reading style. I'd listen to her read another one.


    Any additional comments?

    The story is not in chronological order. It is very jarring to try to mentally piece it together in the right order. I thought there were some fun and cute adventures in the story, but overall it wasn't as fun or funny as Mr. Gaiman claims. Maybe if you are more familiar with the author and/or her friends you'd relate to the book better.
