By Rob Sheffield
It’s an easy book. It’s a hard book to get through. If you love music it’s a fun book. Plus I remember mix tapes. Some people wouldn’t have any idea why these two thing make sense together (see the picture on the right).
LOVE is a Mix Tape or a shy music geek named Rob Sheffield meets a hell-raising Appalachian punk-rock girl. The chat music. They fall in love. They get married. Then she died. In his arms.
Every chapter starts with an actual mix tape. Rob listens to it. Then shares as it churns up ideas, details and stories about said mix tape. You might not agree with the songs but the story is universal.
Fun and funny, moving and unbearably sad.
