I liked the premise, but the execution was pretty bad, IMHO. Some of the dialogue was absolutely horrible, enough to make me stop and read it aloud to my husband. I had a hard time picturing a lot of things they were talking about, and I always seeme...more

I LOVED the beginning of this book and told everyone about it. I knew all the songs they were talking about, but I found an all new appreciation for them after hearing their descriptions and how much they made them feel. The middle of the book seemed...more

“Civil disobedience is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is that people all over the world have obeyed the dictates of leaders…and millions have been killed because of this obedience…Our problem is that people are obedient allover the world in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity, and war, and cruelty.

“Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.”
