Our Review

There are not enough stars for this book!

‘It sounds silly, I know. But for me, the power of music rests in its ability to reach inside and touch the places where the deepest cuts lie.
Like a benevolent god, a good song will never let you down.
And sometimes, when you’re trying to find your way, one of those gods actually shows up and gives you directions.’

I finally got to read the story I’ve been waiting to read in months. And can I just say there are not enough stars to truly rate this book.

The story is about how Eliza an aspiring music journalist moves to NY to join her brother and his girlfriend. She flat-shares with Paul the lead singer in her brothers band. They fall in love and the story continues with a mass of complications and discoveries…..I’m not going to spoil this story by saying anything else.

‘Tell me what you listen to, and I’ll tell you who you are.’

I leisurely read it appreciating the amazingly written lines whilst slowly falling in love with the characters, I wasn’t on the edge, there was laughs, because of very funny dialogue and mild frustrations; angry and sad.

“Break my heart? Is that what you just said? I have news for you; you didn’t break my heart. My heart’s fine. My heart’s in the best shape of its life. You know what you did to me? You took an AK-47 and blew my soul open.” 

Then almost half-way through this book I became an emotional woman possessed and frantically read through the night whilst CRYING like a crazy woman! Now you may not consider this to be such a good thing but for me that means this author has totally touched my heart and written a story so REAL that I am emotionally tied to this book. Oh I did try and take breaks but a few minutes into these breaks and I was back in the story because it didn’t leave me.

‘There’s a big difference between being alone and being lonely. And I’m guessing that once you’ve discovered this distinction you can’t go back to solitary confinement without serious emotional repercussions.’

I can’t recommend this book enough.

This story will stay with me, just like Paul talking to his tape recorder about Eliza!!!

Synopsis

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.
