    Story
    "A ruckus race of rock and roll revival"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This has been my favorite book of all time from the first time I read it back in 1994 and I haven't gone wrong with a Bradley Denton novel. His fun style is hard to put down after you start and this is his best work (well, Blackburn is just as good.)


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the back and forth of the story between Oliver's mother's diary, the different characters telling the story from their points of views, the larger-than-life circumstances and "chance" meetups that keep building until the climax explodes into existence with great satisfaction.


    Which character – as performed by Kirby Heyborne – was your favorite?

    Oliver Vale is so real, so humble and unassuming that you can't help but fall in love with him. Ringo, to me, is the most powerful character in this story. Yes, Ringo. The dog. He has a narrative part too.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, yes, yes. In fact, I may listen to it a second time right now that I finished it the first time.


    Any additional comments?

    Did you write the book of love
    And do you have faith in God above
    If the Bible tells you so?
    Now do you believe in rock and roll?
    Can music save your mortal soul?
    And can you teach me how to dance real slow?

    I love this book. I read it in the 90s and discovering the audiobook has been such a joy.
