I absolutely love a book read by it's author...unless it's Stephen Hawking. Almost kidding. You get more than the words when you hear the author actually recalling and reflecting on his own life. The emotions conveyed by the voice of the one who lived it adds a three-dimensional quality that mere printed words can not adequately convey. I have always been a Pete Townshend fan and wish to say thanks from the very bottom of my heart. You are truly one of rock and roll's greatest in one of the greatest rock and roll bands that will ever be. Many thanks to you, Roger, Keith, and John for the music you have given the world to enjoy. Tommy remains light years ahead of any modern composition. It has the same effect on me today as it did the first time I ever heard it some forty plus years ago. Wow! What an accomplishment.
Your comment on Mick Jagger was sincere...honest...and hilarious!
Plenty of funny moments between the bandmates especially Keith but I also enjoyed the backstories behind the creative engine that drove Pete to make his art. Truly a master craftsman.
Pete - Pure and Easy
I highly recommend this book. Delightful. Money well spent.
I would recommend this audio book to a friend so that they could become familiar with Sherlock Holmes and how it stands up to the test of time. In fact I recommend the whole series.
Classic Sir A.C. Doyle.
Mr. Griffin does an excellent job as narrator and doesn't lull you to sleep. His narrative work is consistent and even. A good voice that does not grate on the nerves even after many hours. I am sure the Doyle estate is happy with his treatment.
Sherlock Holmes of course. To observe his brilliance in action firsthand.
