Highly recommended Feb 18, 2000
If the real test of how good a book is if you are exicited to pick it up and dissapointed when you have to put it down then I, Grace Note is a very good book. It follows a sometimes unsypathetic stuggling musician and her sometimes unsypathetic friends through a few months of her life in New York City. Living in New York is unlike living anywhere else and this book captured that wonderfuly. The author was able to capture the narrators feelings brilliantly, a perfect example being a scene where the protangonist ran a full gammett of emotions from exicted to rational to annoyed and finally to acceptance as she waited in her apartment for her date who never shows up. The book's humor is sometimes hysterical and sometimes contrived but it never slows up and keeps you wondering till the last page what is going to happen next. I highly recommend it.
