...by a liberal friend of mine, I found the book enlightening into why she called me that and how mis-informed she is. This book is filled with historical references but don't think it's a boring read. Quite to the contrary, the sarcasm and wit will keep you laughing as much as the analytical dissection of the term facism and the historical links to the Left will keep your mind engaged and enthralled.
What I found most enjoyable was hearing about Lorelei's climb to success and, of course, her relationship with one of my guitar heroes, Steve Clark.
My favorite character has to be Steve but the insight Lorelei gives into their lives is what truly makes the latter part of the book the most compelling and enjoyable.
The fact that it was her telling her own story made it seem that much more real. My first complaint (and it could be hardware related on my part) was the skips and breaks that popped in occasionally. My second was the mix of the between chapter music. It overwhelmed the chapter titles often making them hard to understand.
I was nearly in tears by the end of the book. I've loved Steve Clark's and Def Leppard's music since I was in jr. high back in the 80's. To hear how he spiraled so out of control was heart-wrenching. Even worse was hearing how much damage he did to those that loved him, especially "Martha". It's a shame, a real shame, he never saw how much he had and how much he deserved it.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, Lorelei, for sharing such a wonderful tale. Not only were the stories with Steve compelling, but your life before Steve had me almost equally enthralled. I loved the book and feel forever grateful for you sharing it with me.
