Devilishly Good

I have few complaint, but overall they are minor. I love music, but clearly not with the depth and passion the author does (I learned more about various types of Guitars than I will retain). It is also a bit introspective for my taste, almost a psychological journal of self. These, combined with the stories tenancy to meander a bit (but when you are telling a tale like this meandering a bit is appropriate) makes it seem to drag and loose focus at times.

I did really like the Devil – very much a drag you down by your own petards kind of fiend; subtle and dangerous. The supernatural elements are played down, being ambiguous to the very end (which is appropriate to the kind of folk magic the author is depicting).

Overall it's very enjoyable.
