    Kindle Paul Quarrington ¸ Kindle Whale Music Epub ß ¸ ahali.co whale download, music epub, Whale Music eBook35 stars rounding up to 4 due to my love of the Rheostatics who were heavily influenced by this bookToo clever by half way too proud of its own inventiveness but a good hearted little fictionalization of the Brian Wilson story I read it due to its connection with the Canadian band Rheostatics who named their third album Whale Music and later created the music for the movie based on the book The book was beneficial in that it made me want to re listen to the Beach Boys and also to read about the troubles of Brian Wilson Creating a nubile 16 year old who hangs around naked has a perfect ass was abused as a child and is a groupie yet is this perfect muse for Dez Howl and is also a well rounded character would seem to be a hard trick to pull off and uarrington doesn't pull it off Beware the fiction writers who lead descriptions of every female character with the size and shape of their breasts; Philip K Dick I'm looking at yo

    Kindle Paul Quarrington ¸ Kindle Whale Music Epub ß ¸ ahali.co whale download, music epub, Whale Music eBookYou might say that winning the Governor General's Award is enough to recommend Whale Music but when books win awards like this it makes people think of them as dry and somehow literary This book is literary but it is also compellingly readable delightfully entertaining the kind of book you spill coffee on in the morning because you can't wait to get back to it It has a sense of humour as well as a sense of a deeper meaning as in other uarrington novels each one reuires the otherThe story takes place in the California mansion of the Whale Man Des Howell former member of the Howell

    Kindle Paul Quarrington ¸ Kindle Whale Music Epub ß ¸ ahali.co whale download, music epub, Whale Music eBookLoved it Thought it was funny poignant sad original I'd loaded this on to my kindle a while ago over a year ago and I had no idea what it was about The narrator has a believable and entertaining voice he's a bit nuts for sure; a musical genius who does a little too much destructive self medication Beneath his genius his eccentricities and his cynicism is pain I loved how the author was able to layer all of that so effectively Didn't realise this was halfway about or at least inspired by Brian Wilson until I went on goodreads It's possible I would have enjoyed the book less if I'd known that going in Instead I read it as a completely fictional character put into the music

    Kindle Paul Quarrington ¸ Kindle Whale Music Epub ß ¸ ahali.co whale download, music epub, Whale Music eBookPaul uarrington is a funny uirky writer Whale Music as did King Leary reminds me of Dickens Christmas Carol The protagonist must deal with the ghosts of the past present futureDes Howl ne Desmond Howell has a lot of ghosts People drugs alcohol he has them all But he has also retained his musical genius How Des finds a way to carry on with his life is the focus of this storyI liked a lot of Whale Music but some parts made me uncomfortable The scenes in Des’ studio while he was writing Whale Music were great His description of his parents was laugh out loud funny in parts I understand that the relationship between Claire Des was central to his “redemption” as it as but I found their age difference disturbing the relationship itself underdeveloped I’m sure the rock roll lifestyle hasn’t changed that much in almost 30 years s
