A story of many different people, in or around the music bussiness, who meet and lose each other, and who all live their own very different lives, searching for happiness in their lives. They wonder where everything went wrong where others went right. They wonder how time could have passed so quickly and unnoticed. They wonder if they could ever feel again like they felt so many years ago.Based on its appearance in many best-of-2011 reading list, I expected a lot more from this book. It's ok, it's amusing to read, and the experiments of the author with a ton of viewing perspectives is very interesting. But the story, the plot, and the characters fail to spark my imagination.
