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.
