This book was a lot of things, and shocking was one of them. However not for the reasons you may think. I just want to let everyone know, before they read it, this book takes place in the 80s or so and I did not pick up on that till about half way through…when something finally clicked in my head.
I normally do not like reading books that take place in the past, however, this did not make it boring or like a history lesson at all.
It was really interesting to read about how everyone thought about things in the past, and how everyone was using cord phones in their house, they didn’t know what AIDS was, and people did drugs left and right.
Aside from the really cool bits and stuff throughout the book, the story was absolutely entertaining and well written. This author managed to make you feel as though you were right there and this crazy affair with the rock store was actually happening to you.
It is written in first person from the point of view of Julia, a young woman trying to make it as an editor and trying to find a book to turn into a hit, and centers around what basically everyone wants…your favorite rock star possibly falling in love with you, definitely just plain looking your way.
Being that the book is a decent length, it gave enough time for the characters to develop and the story to not be rushed, and while endings are usually not very good, this one did not leave you hanging nor leave you wanting more.
I absolutely loved this book, and I highly recommend it, I only blog about the books that I think are worth it.
And Come Dancing With me is worth it because it managed to keep me hooked when it did not happen in present day New York.
