Mitch Albom's storytelling abilities are wonderfully showcased in this novel. You almost have to remind yourself that Frankie is a fictional character and not a real musician. I would love to have a companion cd with the music from the book. Several times in the book, the author surprised me with a plot twist or something I just didn't see coming and I love a book that does that. The story does jump back and forth in time quite a bit so you should prepare yourself for that, but it is such a magical book you will find yourself caught up in Frankie's life and times.
This was our book club selection and I'm very much looking forward to discussing it together.
