What did you love best about 18 and Life on Skid Row?

How Sebastian tells his story. I've listened to a lot of bios and this one is one of a kind. You hear everything when he is telling you his story. He laughs, makes comments and sound effects.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Of course Sebastian

Which scene was your favorite?

The start and middle. I grew up listening to Skid Row and all of the bands that he was talking about. He tells the stories, the real stories.

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

I just wanted everyone else to hear him. Hear how he tells his story. I'm so happy I didn't read it and I listened to it.

Any additional comments?

This is a truly one of a kind book. I would recommend it to everyone. It's hard to describe the stories and storytelling but if you listen to this book you won't regret it!

Always leave a little salt on the bread. Ikey Solomon's favorite saying is also his way of doing business, and in the business of thieving he's very successful indeed. Ikey's partner in crime is his mistress, the forthright Mary Abacus, until misfortune befalls them. They are parted and each must make the harsh journey from thriving nineteenth century London to the convict settlement of Van Diemen's Land.
