it was amazing
Read in April, 2011

When I moved to Seattle, I felt it necessary to acquaint myself with Nirvana. I surprised myself by not only knowing most of their songs, but also by becoming a huge Nirvana fan. Soon after I memorized all their songs, I decided to pick up a biography of Kurt Cobain. I headed on over to Pike Place (where there are three bookstores!) and found Heavier Than Heaven. It was a fantastic read. The author was able to create the picture of Kurt's life easily, without losing me at any point. It's amazing the things Kurt overcame... And the things he allowed to influence his life. Although I'm a believer that Kurt did not, in fact, kill himself (the author believes this and does paint a very good picture to convince the reader that he would kill himself), it was a great read. If you're interested in Nirvana (heck, even if you're not!), give this a go!
