Written in her wonderfully honest, edgy, passionate and often hilarious voice, Tiffanie DeBartolo tells the story of Eliza Caelum, a young music journalist, and Paul Hudson, a talented songwriter and lead singer of the band Bananafish. Eliza's reverence for rock is equaled only by Paul's, and the two fall wildly in love.
When Bananafish is signed by a big corporate label, and Paul is on his way to becoming a major rock star, Eliza must make a heartbreaking decision that leads to Paul's sudden disappearance and a surprise knock-your-socks-off ending
So, I've been reading a lot of these gut-wrenching, tear jerkers book, which I crazy love. I needed a break from them, I was scrolling through my Kindle, looking for a fun, light read. I came across this little rock star novel.
Oh, that will be a fun read, easy, not so thought provoking, right???? NOPE! OMG, don't judge a book by it's cover to mind, when I think about this little gem. The two main characters were so well developed, you would have thought they were your family or very close friend. I mean you really felt close to them, you were really in their head. I had a love-hate relationship with the two main characters. Most of the time I loved these two, they were my best buds. The rest of the time, they had me wanting to fling my Kindle across the room. I wanted to jump in this book and tell them how stupid they were! Not that the book itself was stupid, no, the decisions that these two made. UGH! If they were my best buds, I would have killed them for putting me through that drama crap.
This is another book that will stick with me, it had some really great one liners.
“Tell me what you listen to, and I'll tell you who you are.”
"Fate is the magnetic pull of our souls toward the people, places, and things we belong with.”
“Note to self: Always remember how lucky you are to wake up next to someone who thinks you're the shit.”
****So, is this book worth the click, yes it is. Big fat ugly tears and all.
