The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto by Mitch Albom (on CD)

The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto
by Mitch Albom [Compact Disc Albom]

The author uses vivid imagination to inspire and inform the reader of this great fictional guitarist. I had empathy for Frankie; several important family secrets were kept from him for much of his “life”. The mention of celebrated musicians he met and worked with gives a feeling of authenticity. I’ve read that he has become so well-known that some think he was real. His story is read by a host of talented people, as it is told from many perspectives. You may just recognize several of the readers, and that’s another reason I liked the story.

(If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try Richard Paul Evans, Nicholas Sparks, John GroganPaulo Coehlo, or Diana Athill’s biography Somewhere Towards the End, or other works by Albom, particularly The Five People You Meet in Heaven.)
