Double Time does double duty, in delivering a great story and some terrific performances, both in the narrators and the music. The characters are all so different in how they sound and what they say, it feels like you're hearing about a situation from a bunch of entertaining mutual friends.
Dani's life swings back and forth and back again in an interesting and believable way, from the city to the country, from care-free to workaholic, from a stuffed shirt suitor to free-wheeling Anthony Kiedis. I'm a long-time fan of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Clendenen does a great job of portraying Kiedis in a fictional role. The music hall scene totally evokes an RHCP concert- you feel like you’re there.
The songs you hear as the book proceeds provide great musical intermissions and are well-suited to its themes, particularly the notion of giving women the same freedom as men.
Great story, cool listening- a really fun audiobook.
