Teenage guitarist & singer Lenny Funk, after getting into a fight with a bully who stole his guitar, finds to his dismay that he's able to travel back in time using classic rock music as his guide. His newfound girlfriend & singer learns if this, and they are off on the adventure of a lifetime.
My god! What WOULD it be like to be there at the birth of The Beatles? Knowing all any good Beatles fan does. How incredibly special would that be? And could you actually change history? Prevent their break-up? Lennon's murder? And if so, at what cost, if any?
Well, Lenny finds out the hard way that messing with Father Time is not as easy as it seems. And more than one conundrum presents itself. One gut wrenching one, in particular. Decisions have to be made. And Lenny learns that "with great power comes great responsibility."
A lighthearted, easy read, filled with wonderful memories for Baby Boomers - and magical possibilities. So good, in fact, I may just read it again. It was just that good.
I think what I liked the best, though, was how this story exuded the spirit that can only truly be felt by the young...teenage longing, a sense of unbridled adventure, and the idea that you can change the world -- even if it means changing the past -- and the consequences that go along with all of it. But I don't mean to get "heavy" -- this book is a fun romp, and anyone who is young or ever was could enjoy it. It's also a chance to escape to a dream that many of us have probably had: Getting to hang out with the "lads" as our friends. :)
If you’ve ever fantasized about the concept of time travel, you’ll love this opportunity to leave 2015 behind as you slip back in time to the Swinging 60s. It’s the height of Beatlemania, and you find yourself on a “magical mystery tour,” with teenager Lenny Funk and his dream girl. Their time travel adventures enable them to meet not only The Beatles, but other music legends – like Jimi Hendrix and Mick Jagger – and immerse themselves in a virtual time capsule of 60s culture.
Donovan Day does a marvelous job making time travel even seem plausible, capturing that era and all its nuances, as the teenagers enjoy interacting with their idols onstage and off. The book slips back and forth between 2015 and the 1960s effortlessly, as the teenagers become caught up in the idea that maybe they can intercede in time to stop events from happening, only to ultimately realize there may be a price to pay for trying to rewrite history.
I don’t want to spoil it for others by divulging too much, but the nostalgic recounting of an exciting era on the music scene, unexpected plot twists and the novel concept of time travel all come together in one refreshing one-of-a-kind tale you won’t want to miss!
I also enjoyed the commentary on how "old school" even an iPod is...which pegged me as already hopelessly out of date.
Of course, I'm a Beatle freak too, and from that perspective the book passed the audition. Minor quibbles with certain timeframes/events that are mentioned, but loved the scenes set in the mid-60s. The only anachronism I had a (small) issue with was the mention of a "vintage Taylor guitar" from 1967. Taylor wasn't founded until 1974...but then again, with time travel, events can change...
Loved the book. Thank you, Donovan Day.
