Northline


these things happen, originally uploaded by Hilarywho.

Finished Northline tonight.

After reading it I sat here writing a bit with the soundtrack on. The author Willy Vlautin who grew up in Reno convinced the publisher to include a CD in the back with a soundtrack. Willy is a musician as well and it is a really great idea. Not sure it would work for every book, I don't want to have pick up a Stephen King book and have a soundtrack featuring P.O.D. and whoever else wanted to be on board. But with the prose and music from the same mind it really is a great compliment. I'm listening to it and it makes me feel like I'm back in the story.

that's exactly how I felt listening to the soundtrack. In fact, every time I hear it I feel like I'm back in the story. I'm glad you liked it, thanks for letting me borrow it.
