Wow! Mickey speaks from Heaven and the reader learns what it was really like in his career. Full of memorable characters and famous names, this well-written memoir truly captures the spirit of the famous Number 7! Highly recommended.
I didn't expect much from Agent to the Stars since it was a first novel that had not been published until Scalzi had already built his readership, but I really love this book! I cared for the characters, enjoyed the plot, and even got a little misty-eyed at the ending. Although it is by no means perfect, this novel is a great fun read. Highly recommended.
I really wanted to like this book more, but for some reason I had trouble getting into it. It's a well-crafted story with an interesting and unique concept that I thought would be right up my alley and I'm sorry I didn't enjoy it more. I'm going to pass on the other two volumes of the trilogy.
A brilliant book, with believable characters that one really cares about, well-plotted action, and a heart-warming ending. And of course, there is a bit of America's past time: baseball. My highest recommendation.
I knew by the end of the first chapter that this was a very special book, and I read a LOT of books. I read a lot of VERY GOOD books. But it is exceedingly rare when I am so deeply moved. Feeling my emotions so wonderfully affected by an author's words is the greatest compliment I can give. The endorphin rush I felt when I finished this novel was a pure feeling of bliss. Only once or twice a year do I ever read anything even close! My heart clutched with sadness, it soared with triumph, and it basked in joy. I give this my very highest recommendation. Read this book!
Well-written and engaging, this book really takes the reader for a ride. Contrary to some reviewers, I had no problem getting into the story from the very beginning. This is a rewarding story and is highly recommended.
Funny and enlightening, this is an indispensable read for anyone interested in rock and roll history. Kooper takes the reader on an inside tour of what it's like to be a rock performer, songwriter, and producer. My highest recommendation.
