The Rise and Fall of the Miraculous Vespas by David F. Ross
Source: Orenda Books
I am not a big fan of non-fiction books, to say the truth, but the reviews of this book caught my attention so I decided to give it a chance. Because, who can resist a book where the music band is mixed with gangsters?
"Rock 'n' Roll doesn't necessarily mean a band. It doesn't mean a singer, and it doesn't mean a lyric, really. It's that question of trying to be immortal"
This book hasn't disappointed me, it has everything you need to keep reading while you get some 80's nostalgia... the music, the people...
You will enter in the world of The Vespas, a young Scottish band with some big problems but at the same time a big passion for music. You will love all the characters even if their actions where not as good as they need to be... but it makes the book more real and authentic.
It is quite strange reading the dialogues in Scottish, some words sound so strange!
Be prepared to return to the past with this David F. Ross book, but I can assure you will be enchanted with his words and while you enter in the "music" world!
Ready for the fame?
