Dead Brilliant by Christopher Ward
First off let me say that Dead Brilliant’s cover was awesome. The guitar neck/coffin look fit the story well. I hate to say that this was the best thing about the book.
Roc Molotov has just parted with his old band The Cocktails. They are doing well and he is not. His manager, Uncle Strange has convinced Roc
that his music would be received better from fans if he was dead. So they come up with this genius idea of
faking Roc’s death on his upcoming performance on an MTV stage. Roc soon sees that being dead suck for him
but his music has become legendary. Hollywood
I could hardly focus on this book. It was so hard to get into. First off, I thought that the characters were ridicules. The girlfriend from
made us Alabamians
look stupid, I am sorry but I am not a dumb blonde redneck chick. I also hated Uncle Strange, he had that
washed up pedophile thing going on to me.
I didn’t really care for Roc’s character, but liked him the best. I did however, struggle through this book and
found it do lackluster that I do not think I can ever read anything else from
this author. I just wasn’t my thing, I
guess. The idea was brilliant, the
follow through was dead. Alabama
