    From the voice of a generation: the most highly anticipated autobiography of the year, and the story of a man who wanted The Who to be called The Hair; wanted to be a sculptor, a journalist, a dancer and a graphic designer; became a musician, composer, librettist, fiction writer, literary editor, sailor; drank too much and nearly died; detached from his body in an airplane, on LSD, and nearly died; planned to write his memoir when he was 21; and published this book at 67.

    What made the experience of listening to Who I Am the most enjoyable?

    Pete Townshend provides very interesting insights into the british rock scene of the 60's. The interactions between various artists of the time was amazing.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Pete Townshend pulls no punches for anyone including himself. Seemed to be very honestly written.


    What about Pete Townshend’s performance did you like?

    He was able to laugh at himself and his past behavior.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I went back and listened to my entire Who library. It was really cool to have that first hand background on the creative process that Pete went thru to write a lot of the Who's songs.


    Any additional comments?

    You will not be disappointed with this purchase.

  • The Caine Mutiny

    Story
    (803)

    Having inspired a classic film and Broadway play, The Caine Mutiny is Herman Wouk's boldly dramatic, brilliantly entertaining novel of life—and mutiny—on a Navy warship in the Pacific theater. It was immediately embraced upon its original publication as one of the first serious works of American fiction to grapple with the moral complexities and the human consequences of the Second World War. In the intervening half century, this gripping story has become a perennial favorite, selling millions throughout the world, and claiming the Pulitzer Prize for fiction.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Caine Mutiny the most enjoyable?

    I spent portion of my youth in the Navy. Some of the situations brought back a lot of memories. Wouk presents very believable situations and makes the mutiny seem like the right thing to do at the time...


    What did you like best about this story?

    The charactors are very well rounded and you feel a connection with the sailors of the Caine.


    What about Kevin Pariseau’s performance did you like?

    Well read. The different voices used in the narration helps to keep the charactors more individual.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I enjoyed the relationship between Willie and May.


    Any additional comments?

    Fantastic book. Great story and great charactors.
