    When Kurt Cobain died by his own hand in April 1994, it was an act of will that typified his short, angry, inspired life. Veteran music journalist Charles R. Cross fuses his intimate knowledge of the Seattle music scene with his deep compassion for his subject in this extraordinary story of artistic brilliance and the pain that extinguished it.

    Richard says: "Great story - missing chapter 12"
    "All Nirvana fans will love this book"
    Overall

    I greatly enjoyed this book. It is well researched and clearly presented. It paints a very clear picture of a man who was talented, but flawed, and gives all of the dirty details of his life with as much ferver as the great times and achievements of Kurt Cobain's life. I can only say I am sorry that he did not seek treatment for his depression. Too many people are not able to survive its ugly head.

    Meet 22-year-old Cherry Pye (nee Cheryl Bunterman), a pop star since she was 14 - and about to attempt a comeback from her latest drug-and-alcohol disaster.Now meet Cherry again: in the person of her undercover stunt double, Ann DeLusia. Ann portrays Cherry whenever the singer is too indisposed - meaning wasted - to go out in public. And it is Ann-mistaken-for-Cherry who is kidnapped from a South Beach hotel by obsessed paparazzo Bang Abbott.

    "Narrator complaints are right on!!!"
    Overall

    I did not think that a Carl Hiaasen book could be ruined by poor narration. I was wrong. This guy gives NO inflection of the different characters in the book. I finished reading it a few days ago and cannot really even tell anyone what it was about. I think I will get the book at the library and read it. Please, fire this narrator and bring back George Wilson who is one of the best narrators out there.
