    As a brunette, fringed 19 year old music fanatic, I presumed this book would tick all of my boxes Sadly, I was quite wrong I hate to write negative reviews esp of Australian authors but I have to be honest and say that I really don t like Brett s writing Not one bit This novel is about a young woman interviewing some of the world s biggest and best musicians at the height beginning of their fame Sounds great, but her voice comes across as clunky, detached and basic and I struggled to conn As a brunette, fringed 19 year old music fanatic, I presumed this book would tick all of my boxes Sadly, I was quite wrong I hate to write negative reviews esp of Australian authors but I have to be honest and say that I really don t like Brett s writing Not one bit This novel is about a young woman interviewing some of the world s biggest and best musicians at the height beginning of their fame Sounds great, but her voice comes across as clunky, d...

    This started off well Initially I quite enjoyed it The interviews with the celebrities were interesting and I figured since Lily was herself a journalist, maybe they were based on real ones Having read some of the other reviews for this, it seems that this is not the case and they are fictional I am a little too young to know most of them, but had of course heard of the majority I enjoyed what I thought was an insight into them.The main problem I had was that we don t really get to know Lol This started off well Initially I quite enjoyed it The interviews with the celebrities were interesting and I figured since Lily was herself a journalist, maybe they were based on real ones Having read some of the other reviews for this, it seems that this is not the case and they are fictional I am a little too young to know most of them, but had of course heard of the majority I enjoyed what I thought was an insight into them.The main problem I...

    I only gave this book 2 stars because its written about an era and a community of musicians that I adore The writing itself is fairly good but the character of Lola Bensky is dull, indecisive, annoying,self loathing, green, unintelligent, unconfident, unconvincing, ignorant and woeful.I feel that Lily Brett has tried to re imagine something along the lines of Kerouac s On The Road, from a meek Australian female perspective, and failed miserably.Throw in some graphic depictions of world war two I only gave this book 2 stars because its written about an era and a community of musicians that I adore The writing itself is fairly good but the character of Lola Bensky is dull, indecisive, annoying,self loathing, green, unintelligent, unconfident, unconvincing, ignorant and woeful.I feel that Lily Brett has tried to re imagine something along the lines of Kerouac s On The Road, from ...

    I m disappointed to say that I have nothing good to say about this book Why would anyone want to read a book about a woman who, rather than talk about her incredibly interesting career or her travels or the amazing people that she has interviewed and hung out with, chooses instead to write about how fat her thighs are Lola doesn t seem to have any passion for music, or anything really It s almost as if she just stumbled into the music industry Her mother is so hateful that I didn t even ha I m disappointed to say that I have nothing good to say about this book Why would anyone want to read a book about a woman who, rather than talk about her incredibly interesting career or her travels or the amazing people that she has interviewed and hung out with, chooses instead to write about how fat her thighs are Lola doesn t seem to have any passion for music, or anything really It s almost as if she just stumbled into ...

    I can t say I enjoyed this very much A made up journo having made up conversations with famous rock stars hold tick all the boxes, but all Lola does is obsess over false eyelashes, WWII atrocities and diets The middle of the boo...

    Whatever became of Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich They had been long gone from my grey matter until Lily Brett s book bought back a memory of forty plus years ago For a nano second, despite their ridiculous appellation based on the member s nicknames, they were the hottest band on the planet with monster hits such as The Legend of Xanadu and Bend It the latter being banned in the Bible Belt for its saucy lyrics In my formative years of musical appreciation I d purchased these two s Whatever became of Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich They had been long gone from my grey matter until Lily Brett s book bought back a memory of forty plus years ago For a nano second, despite their ridiculous appellation based on the member s nicknames, they were the hottest band on the planet with monster hits such as The Legend of Xanadu and Bend It the latter being banned in the Bible ...

    While it took me a little while to adapt to Lily Brett s writing style, ultimately I was fully engaged with the character of Lola Bensky A littlethan based on her own experience as a rock journalist in the 1960s, Brett imbues Lola with wonderful warmth, humour and her self effacing attitude is very endearing Of course, the entree into the personal world of the 60s Rock Greats adds to the interest of this novel, butthan that, it is Lola s inner turmoil as she tries to come to grip While it took me a little while to adapt to Lily Brett s writing style, ultimately I was fully engaged with the character of Lola Bensky A littlethan based on her own experience as a rock journalist in the 1960s, Brett imbues Lola with wonderful warmth, humour and her self effacing attitude is very endearing Of course, the en...

    For someone who claims to have music journalism experience, they might have wanted to do a littleresearch into the life and times of swingin London in the 60s The depictions of these characters feel like Brett researched them once or twice on Wikipedia for anyone with the slightest bit of musical knowledge or love of rock n roll, this story is insulting Does the author really think this is believable Is the target audience young teenagers Does every move that Lola a most narcissi For someone who claims to have music journalism experience, they might have wanted to do a littleresearch into the life and times of swingin London in the 60s The depictions of these characters feel like Brett researched them once or twice on Wikipedia for anyone with th...

    I was apprehensive with the 3.3 average rating but I couldn t put this book down I read it from cover to cover in one evening I found the writing was simple, light, easy to get through but the content was surprisingly profound and at times almost disturbing I found it to have a great balance of depth and simplicity The non linear timeline, the idiosyncratic main character, and the basis in Lily Brett s own life make this a great read, in my opinion Sometimes Lola Bensky s weight obsession b I was apprehensive with the 3.3 average rating but I couldn t put this book down I read it from cover to cover in one evening I found the writing was simple, light, easy to get through but the content was surprisingly profound and at times almost disturbing I found it to have a great balance of depth and simplicity The non linear timeline, the idiosyncratic main character, and the basis in Lily Brett s own life make this a great...
