4.0 out of 5 stars GREAT BOOK, Feb. 4 2005
I have to say that "BROKEN MUSIC" is the best music biography I have personally read in years purely because it doesn't follow the paint by numbers philosophy of "how I became a star and why you should love me" writing that many biographies take.

It takes the luster off his stardom and ironically propels him further onto a pedestal in my eyes as a result.

Everyone has different tastes as readers. I personally feel "THE THREE JUNES" is excellent but I can see where it is not everyone's taste. What is?

It would be easy to compare it to "MY FRACTURED LIFE" because of the use of nontraditional protagonists, however I prefer to challenge that "ATONEMENT" and any other book be judged individually. "ATONEMENT" and "MY FRACTURED LIFE" are both excellent and I recommend them both, but not for their similarities, but for their inherent uniqueness. The should be read as individual books and judged as individual books. From my… Read more
