Music is a universal language

Everyone joins a band in this life, and what you play always affects someone. Sometimes, it affects the world

That is one of the closing lines in The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto by Mitch Albom.

I loved the fact that the story was narrated by Music itself..and delves into the chapters of our lives as if they were stanzas in music…as well as tempos.

Music tells us throughout the story that he gives a part of himself to everyone of us when we were born. Some of us, like Frankie Presto, BB King, Elvis, etc, get more of him than others.

I loved this story. Even though Frankie Presto is a fictional character, his story is intermingled with the best in the music industry. From playing with Elvis, to auditioning for KISS and many more great stories, it is a great story and you learn just how you impact everyone you meet in life, in some way.

This is book 5 in my goal to read 50 books in 2017 through goodreads.
