There aren't a lot of times that we get a book to read where the author let's the reader get a good look at the heart and soul of a genius. We all know some of this amazing person, Ludwig Van Beethoven, but we haven't had the inside look at what life has dealt him and his trials and struggles. We all have those demons that haunt us, but we don't stop and think that someone as brilliant as Beethoven would have them too. The author not only shows us the man but how this man saw the world around him. I never knew that Beethoven had love in his life. Beethoven was a complicated man and took his music to a level few will ever achieve, if any ever do. This book is an absolute masterpiece. Everyone should sit down and seriously read this book. It doesn't matter is you're a lover of music, romance, history, the man himself, it's a good novel and it shouldn't be by-passed. The pace is steady so you have time to take it all in. Remember, you're seeing things about a musical master that you may never have know. Everyone, genius or not, must come to grips of what our life is, what it means and where it's going.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author, Howard Jay Smith and PUYB Virtual Book Tours and voluntarily decided to review it.
