Overview

Volume One of Daron's Guitar Chronicles begins when Daron finds himself at a bar in Providence, filling in for the regular guitarist in a hair metal cover band. He's not thrilled about it, but a gig's a gig. He's too young to drink and trying not to think about how his scholarship money has run out. He'll need to figure out a way to make a living, much less stay in music school. Everything changes, though, when his former mentor walks into the bar.

Winner of the Rose and Bay Award for Crowdfunded Fiction!

"For me, Daron is one of those rare fictional characters that I have a hard time believing does not actually exist on the physical plane. He is just too real. Part of it is that Daron is only a couple of years older than me and the way the 80s are brought to life here reminds me very much of my own coming of age: the musical references, the language, the AIDS scare, the technology, the hair...Most of all, though, it is the fact that Daron is an extremely well written character. He grows and changes and engages."

A mildly interesting story, however the reader never really gets to know the characters. This appears to be true because the characters don't seem to know themselves, let alone each other. I don't expect to read more of the Daron Chronicles.

I loved this story. Loved the snipets of lyrics to songs. The chapters being song titles, Daron and his agnstyness. Just a good read. Couldn't put it down and didn't want it to end. :)

I received an ARC of this from NetGalley for a fair and unbiased review. This was definitely an interesting book. It mostly takes place on the East Coast of the US particularly in the New England area (Northern East Coast for those who don't know). If you like reading books about gay men in the music industry, you'll probably like this book. I'm ambivalent both on the topic of the music industry and gay men but can definitely enjoy one or both of them. I also enjoyed the excerpt from volume two at the end of this book. The way that one of the songs was described I felt like I could practically hear it which is a new thing for me when it comes to books. And was definitely a good thing. I like being able to envision things while I read. And the author definitely does a good job with descriptions.
