What a ride! The story lived up to all the hype. A unique and ground breaking memoir in its time, but still quite relevant in my opinion.

This was not for me, I wish I'd read the good reads summary before getting this book. I thought it was going to be a natural history of Nantucket maybe something about the whaling history. But in fact it was more of a memoir of the authors. All fine and good but just not what I was looking for. Still looking for that book about the Nantucket Sleigh ride, my favorite song by Mountain.

One of the best books I have ever read. I love my piano, and this story is all about music in the soul....about what music means, about what it means to have music...if you have music in your soul you will love this book..if you are an expert pianist but don't have the soul of music., you might not. It isn't how well you play....it's that playing is sacred, special and something so personal...there really is no way to convey this book's meaning to me - read it please.
