Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

French Rhapsody by Antoine Laurain


       


The story starts with a classical music definition of a rhapsody.  The is translated from French.  Each chapter has a character as it’s main focus.   The central theme is that a group of diverse young people get together in the eighties and form a band called Hologram.  The current lives of those people are explored with each looking back at their earlier personas. 

My initial reaction was not overly positive but I stuck with it and found that it was an enjoyable book.  Your roots often determine your eventual outcome but this book shows that is not always the case.  

There were a few surprises and the book was well written.   It is for those who like character studies there are no car chases and very little violence.

I recommend it.

Web:  not his site but gives good information on him.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
