been trying to read it

Posted to WritersAndGenres




After reading "Positively 4th Street" (the book about him and Dylan and the Baez sisters) I bought his CD, "Celebration for a Gray Day" and it was a lot better than I thought it would be. There are actually a few songs on there I will be listening to a lot, especially "Reno Nevada". But I can't get into his novel very much yet. I don't know why it's not grabbing me. I guess the style is too hyper -- it seems like the narrator is having more fun than I am. But I'm going to keep trying to get past the first five pages, and maybe eventually I will.

What do you think of it?
