    Scowl is the second book I have read by Mark Lages, and while this one differs greatly from Little Blue Whistle in terms of the plot, the inspiring and meaningful themes are still carried over just as well Following a famous rock musician through his life in the height of rock n roll, readers come to know Scowl as the person behind the music and glamour, a man whose career and life have not been perfect, but a man who has experienced love, talent, tragedy and faith enough to be both a realistic character and a relatable one, too.Thankfully lacking in the vulgarity of other fictional music memoirs I ve read in the past such as Hard Core Logo, Scowl also is the kind of universal book which any reader can identify with, something which is hard to find in books these days I loved all the detail in the prose, the character flaws which make Scowl all the hum...

    I really didn t know what to expect when I started reading this, but apart from me starting out slightly bemused and enjoying a trip down history s lane, I was simply tempted to start supplying my own knowledge of David Bowie and the Beatles and Elvis and the Beach Boys and maybe a little Pink Floyd and ride the nostalgic music wave.This is written as a series of interviews revolving a fictitious musician breaking the scene in 1957 and giving us fantastic glimpses of his life until 2001, but apart from that, it s not just about the music It s about Art It s about Life And not to make too fine a point about it, it s about doing the best you can and doing the best you can with it It s about making mistakes, owning up to them, being honest, and being good The Fame is a side issue.Here s the skinny I m kinda surprised how much this book hit me He kinda started out like an Elvis clone and the character didn t really appeal to me all that much, but the writing was clear and quick and I had no issues I then started getting the whole Forrest Gump vibe as history started happening and Scowl came alive Making stupid decisions that nevertheless didn t hurt him any, career wise.By the time I was half way through the novel, I discovered something pretty cool The novel is optimistic.Hopeful Courageous Decent Even wholesome Scowl did some really crappy things but this is...

    Scowl is an amazing book It s the biography of a man who lived life in the spotlight He made some good choices and some bad choices Scowl was just a person.Also, by the end of the first chapter, I was a little afraid I wouldn t be able to read it all the way through because Bonaparte asks Scowl, outright, if he is a Christian Scowl answered that he was raised as a Christian At first, I kept expecting to read how horrible Scowl was at being a Christian Didn t happen Scowl is a man living in the time and world he was given Just an ordinary man who happened to have some talent people paid him for He got to do a lot of interesting things because of his talent You just gotta read it That s all I can say without giving away the good stuff.Having said that, I m sending my copy to one of my daughters, and buying 5 copies one for each of my other children, and one so I have it around to read again It is that good Once I got started reading, I couldn t put it down The characters are so b...

    I was originally contacted by the author for a request to review in providing an honest account of what I ve read and I m so glad he reached out as I accepted the request immediately without a moments hesitation.This book will make you forget that it s truly a work of fiction as it s so reality driven, so thoughtful, so thorough in its concepts and ideas, so believable in the interviews that I truly never read anything quite like this before and it was truly captivating.It begins with a brief intro into the life and times of a famous pop rock musician in the late 50 s known as Scowl.Scowl is quite the character coming across as both moody, harsh, abrasive, and yet brutally honest.He s the type of fella that feels women swoon all over him yet he has such a hard decision in who to choose for his own personal liking...

    One of the most impressive attributes about the author Mark Lages is that while you think you are reading an intriguing story about the life of one of his amazing characters by the end of his books you realize that he has made you think about your own life and decisions and compromises you have made throughout your own life.Scowl is no exception to this author s ability Scowl is a rock and roll superstar guitarist We learn his life story through interviews he does with one particular reporter Ralph Bonaparte I found this technique of guiding us through Scowl s life by reading the reporter s interviews with him to be very original and believable In fact, as I read the book I was reminded of the many interviews Dave Marsh has conducted with Bruce Springsteen and how he is considered the go to expert on Springsteens career So there is factual basis for this storytelling method.The story uses real life events as background to Scowls rise to super stardom and being less a super star as time goes on We meet Scowl during the beginning of rock roll with Elvis, Little Richie, the Beatles and the tragic plane crash killing Buddy Holly and the assassination of President Kennedy As Scowl tries to find himself in the seventies we are made aware of the Vietnam War, Watergate, and Woodst...

    This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review I wasn t at all sure what to expect from this novel as I won it in a giveaway and didn t know anything about it going in I literally started the first page blind to what I would be reading I was pleasantly surprised to have loved it because I would not have chosen and purchased this book if I were browsing the aisles at Barnes Noble Yes, there is still a Barnes Noble in my local mall, thank God The novel follows Scowl s life and career over many years and it often read like a real biography instead of fictionand I LOVED that Mark Lages is an excellent writer and I m looking forward to reading from him I found a lot of similarities with own feelings and life experiences scattered throughout, and Scowl s many imperfections are what made him perfect , if you know what I mean I highly recommend it for anyone who enjoys biographies and w...
