“Music, to me, is one giant puzzle, and collecting music is about finding all the pieces and trying to fit them together.”
Allie’s passion about music and vinyl records is so jaw-dropping. I seriously need a friend who loves music the way she does. As I was reading, I felt jealous that she gets to spend her day around awesome music. Unfortunately, there were times that it all felt forced. Or maybe it was too much to be real. There were times that I felt that I was hearing the author’s voice not the character’s itself.
It was light to read and has some feelings. I even like the fact that it didn’t focused on one thing. But some parts were underdeveloped that sometimes I ask myself why it was included. There were also parts that were just mentioned but not totally discussed.
Minus the excessive knowledge from Allie, I love the part where she pursued her music blog and sort of created a community. I know the feeling of being among people who knows what you like and understands them. Although I find it really weird and superficial how her stats went up that fast.
Zach was also a good addition to the mix. He wasn’t the all-knowing kind which was sort of refreshing. He was just someone who knows his shit and loves it.
