I have basically always loved Ben Folds' music, and he has a ton of it, so it seemed only right to give his book a read. Ben seems like the kind of person who keeps making the same mistakes over and over again, and if your his family or friend you love him but kind of cringe to see him doing the same thing again. Overall it was good. I would have liked to hear more about some of the specific songs and albums. For example, Reinhold Messner which I consider to be one of his best albums, was like a throwaway paragraph in the book!

Took me about a third of the way through to get into it, and I read it entirely on my phone! (I started it while I was walking around the house a lot with Rory, then a baby, and finished when he was almost 2!) But eventually I liked it a like. 5 or so different stories in different time periods. Each interesting in their own right. Better together.

Not at all like the others, but since this is the first Korean book I read cover to cover, I am adding it!

I read this in the slowest way possible, I probably could have read it in a few days but it took me months. Enjoyed it overall but a few times I got tired of the letters back and forth...

One of the reviews on the back of the book called this a 'gentle book,' and I have to agree. It's slow paced, and very little happens, but still enjoyable to read. When I bought it, I said, I wanted a dumb vacation book, and this hit the spot.
