's review

really liked it

**A quirky and oddly compelling tale**

Bellweather Rhapsody is like nothing I have ever read before.
100% unique and reads like a Wes Anderson film.

Setting: The Bellweather Hotel. A large, possibly haunted hotel in a state of disrepair.

Cast: Flawed, nerdy, dangerous and expressive.

Plot: A weekend retreat for the most talented young musicians in NY state; dramatics ensue.

Two of our main characters are Alice and Rabbit Hatmaker, a brother and sister duo, who are basically the novel interpretation of what would happen if Rachel Berry and Kurt Hummel were brother and sister.

Aspirations and attitudes are running high and on full display. This was completely entertaining even though I can hardly form into words an accurate description of what I read. There is a lot going on including, but not limited to: murder, hauntings (both external and internal), disappearances, shouting matches, a love affair, self discovery, robbery and so much more.

I am so glad I picked this up. It was as random as this storyline and I'm down for that. I would recommend this for any music geeks out there - you know who you are. Be proud and read this book!
