This book is a splendid find for one who: 1) has read and enjoyed several other Greil Marcus books, and/or 2) has a vast and insatiable need to know more about Bob Dylan in a broad, American context. As I fit both of those categories, I found the book delightful. Others, however, might find Marcus's occasionally glib, always meandering form of chronicle more irritating then engaging.

a little meandering, but an interesting read nonetheless
