This is my second book review for Thomas Nelson, and I have to say, it took much longer to get here than I though it would! I received this book in the summer, and it has taken my quite a while to finish it.
I was really excited to get this book, although I was not familiar with Ken Mansfield. The premise of the book sounded intriguing: an ex-Rock & Roll music producer from the ’60s, taking a road trip and recounting his journey through music history to find a relationship with God. I was ready for an exciting adventure with possibly some insider information about some of my favorite classic rock bands. What I got was a great 50 page short story, painfully stretched into over 200 pages.
Don’t misunderstand me, it is truly a great story, it is just not told in a very engaging way and I found myself wanting to skip to the good parts and not knowing how to find them without reading the entire book.
The bottom line is, if you like watching the Biography Channel, you may like this book, but if you are looking for a “page turner”, this is probably not a book for you.
