Thoughts at the half way point of a Visit From the Goon Squad

Think of a daisy chain of people all holding hands that eventually meets back in a circle.

This feels like that as it charts the lives of record producer Bennie and his PA Sasha.

As you read about them and their pasts you then pick up the story from another characters history. This goes on in a way that creates its own rhythm.

It's a fun read in terms of living back through the years when vinyl mattered and punk rocked.

Quite where it will end is hard to predict but the journey getting there is an enjoyable one.

I've this on my Kindle, it was 1 of the pre-Xmas deals & my aim is to read it sometime this year. Will be interested to compare opinions.
