Reelin' in the Years

by Mark Radcliffe

Book review

At the beginning I was quite happy with the book, since it appeared funny and all, plus it is related to music. The book structure was promising, so I thought it was gonna be a nice, pleasant read. After a while I got really bored. Radcliffe seems to go around without really having a point in every chapter, and also the funny effect fades away after a while. Sure, you get a smile once in a while, but the process to get there is a bit too boring to make you really enjoy it. He builds up the story related to the song for each year fairly well, but then he closes it poorly most of the times. Sometimes he goes on and on with descriptive details of very superficial things, and he is not really good at playing with those either. At a point, I decided to go through the chapters I was most interested in (because of the songs) so to re-gain enthusiasm about the book; that didn't work either, since even reading those I wasn't particularly entertained. Eventually I decided not to read the others.
