    " I have enjoyed other books by this author but this one didn't hold the interest for me. It did have a good sense of time and place. "

    " Music connects us. A short novel about friendship, music and race relations. Enjoyable. "

    " Clyde Edgerton is one of my favorite authors. I'm not very interested in music, so didn't enjoy this as much as some of his other books, but there was also a lot about family. Edgerton has an amazing ear for dialog. "

    " Ugh...I did not like this book and wouldn't recommend it to anyone. It started getting good about Chapter 27. "

    " I'm very disappointed in this book. Two of my favorite books are by Clyde Edgerton: Walking Across Egypt and The Floatplane Notebooks. The last few of his were not up to those. "

    " This is one of those real people but not boring books. I liked it a lot. "

    " I really liked the quirky characters in this book. They reminded me of something else I've recently read, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter by Carson McCullers. A good and quick read. "
