I bought this book as a gift for my husband, who is a fan of the Perenice Brothers band. After he read it, he remarked that good songwriters aren't necessarily good novelists. However, then I read it and quite enjoyed it. Great for anyone with nostalgiac earnings for the '80s.

Was a let down. I expected some perspective into the 'Meat is Murder' album and instead got a fictional story about some high school guy who becomes a fan of the album. I did enjoy some aspects of the story, but it simply was not what I had been anticipating in the years that I waited to read this book. Side Note: It was odd to me that the story contained a few of the lyrics from "Back to the Old House", a song that wasn't even on the 'Meat is Murder' album. Still a nice touch, however, as that is one of my favourites from The Smiths.
