    Now at last Keith Richards pauses to tell his story in the most anticipated autobiography in decades. And what a story! Listening obsessively to Chuck Berry and Muddy Waters records in a coldwater flat with Mick Jagger and Brian Jones, building a sound and a band out of music they loved. Finding fame and success as a bad-boy band, only to find themselves challenged by authorities everywhere....

    If you could sum up Life in three words, what would they be?

    An Excellent Story!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Keith --he showed great heart.


    What about Johnny Depp and Joe Hurley ’s performance did you like?

    Liked when they used the Cockney accent


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

    I came into adulthood during the 70's. Of course I knew of the Stones but I never would say I loved or followed their music.

    This was just a great story about someone who helped define the times of my life. It was of course an interesting and varied story. And surprisingly...I fell in love with Keith...

  • The Beginner's Goodbye

    Story
    (147)

    Anne Tyler gives us a wise, haunting, and deeply moving new novel in which she explores how a middle-aged man, torn apart by the death of his wife, is gradually restored by her frequent appearances: in their house, on the roadway, in the market. Gradually he discovers, as he works in the family's vanity-publishing business, turning out titles that presume to guide beginners through the trials of life, that maybe for this beginner there is a way of saying goodbye.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It was a disappointment...it seems to drone on...perhaps it is the fact that the narrator in the book is somewhat of a whiner and loser...and it difficult to listen to.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Anne Tyler? Why or why not?

    I read all her books. Absolutely.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No....too sad.
