    Half-Blood Blues

    This book gave me a different perspective on The Second World War than I have ever had. I've not thought about the lives of the artists of the time and how war could affect a disparate group of individuals come together for the love of jazz. The language used by the author is the driving force behind the flow of the story.

    Disappointing

    I gave up on this book just past the halfway point. I'm interested in music, including jazz, and I'm also interested in WWII history but this book just meanders and drags on. The first person narrative style is also very tedious. I have much better things to do with my time and you likely do, as well.

    Half Blood Blues

    Excellent. A book that inspires one to hear the melody of the story. A pleasure to read, but also heart wrenching and soulful.

    Uncomfortable

    This was difficlt to read because of the African English and setting. Too much jumping from past to present made it hard to concentrate or follow.
