    The Hour of the Innocents is the story of Will and the band The Innocents and their desire to make it in a moment where music was having a major role in history It s a story about many things, you have friendship, growing up, family, post war life and so much .I liked the portrayal of the era, you can feel the sixties in the air and the author created a story that really reflects the moment I also liked the songs, I wanted to listen to them and really hear how they sound.I didn t like the The Hour of the Innocents is the story of Will and the band The Innocents and their desire to make it in a moment where music was having a major role in history It s a story about many things, you have friendship, growing up, family, post war life and so much .I liked the portrayal of the era, you can feel the sixties in the air and the author created a stor...

    I received an advanced reading copy of this from Forge Books via the Goodreads First Reads Giveaway program.I ignorantly assumed that the Tor and Forge imprints of Macmillan were both for science fiction and fantasy, exclusively The Hour of the Innocents then came as a surprise as I made my way into the novel and realized this wasn t the case Yet, this unmet expectation may have actually enhanced my enjoyment and appreciati...

    At risk of plagiarizing myself, I copied my Sept 2015review w minor edits I m generally skeptical about rock roll books, especially novels It s a myth laden avenue of culture that s all too easy for an author to fake It s possible to do a creditable job of exposing the myth, but such tomes usually base themselves on the worn out touchstones of a generation that sold itself out, and whose main contribution to popular music is the equally worn out Classic Rock genre that of At risk of plagiarizing myself, I copied my Sept 2015r...

    It s 1968, the Vietnam War era A local Pennsylvania band is trying to make it big Frankie the charismatic lead singer and bass player, Stosh the drummer and money handler, Mattie the dynamic lead guitar player and Vietnam vet and Will the song writer and guitar player This is a well written, character driven novel that manages to capture a small period in our history The story is told in Will s voice and it works well because Will is the outsider of the band, the last one to join who was afr It s 1968, the Vietnam War...

    I really liked this book The author does a good job of recreating the era The characters are interesting though somewhat predictable The story is a little predictable as well, but the author tells it in such a convincing way that it doesn t matter The musical descriptions actually had me reminiscing my garage band days Readers may complain of some story threads that aren t fully explored, but it makes sense in the context of the story This book may not be for everyone, but I think anyone w I really liked this book The author does a good job of recreating the era The characters are interesting though somewhat predictable The story is a little predictable as well, but the author tells it in such a convincing way that it doesn t matter The musical descriptions actually had me reminiscing my garage band days Readers may comp...
