    One thought on “The Angel Riots

    1. Steven Buechler on said:

      While the book deals with a band on tour, it isn t a typical rock band on tour book Which was the impression that it was going to be when I first picked it up More like a group of people from a dysfunctional families who have dysfuntional relationships and are trying hard to create some art that has some meaning for their fans Very deep and thoughtful at times From page 252 253 Maybe the mystics are right it s a total free for all and you re on your own.Having crushed a living being, my own brot [...]

    2. Jesse on said:

      This was a quick, fun read But I really disliked how, even though the story was told from 2 perspectives one in first person and one in third person the first person narrative really didn t differ from the third person narrative The character s thought patterns were exactly the same as the writer s in the third person descriptions The metaphors in both sections were just a little too similar to really get the feeling that the character was speaking and not just the author.

    3. Norhan on said:

      Written from two perspectives in parallel the perspective of Rize, the trombonist of The Angel Riots, a rock band and the perspective of Jim, a young woman who becomes a violinist in the Divine Light, an orchestra.As the orchestra and the band merge, their members merge and collide as well, creating drama and controversy Not my kind of plot, but Kaslik s prose is charming, dense and at times mildly poetic just the way I like it A short, nice read.

    4. VWrulesChick on said:

      I like the way the author put together Jim s story of self discovery and innocence and Rize s train crash of a life as they become members of the The Angel Riots Their difference experiences from earlier on, as well as, the group grows in popularity and fame What chaos ensues them and how they deal with it, to know that life goes on.

    5. Chris on said:

      This is one of the best books written in the 21st century, Ibi Kaslik is one of the most astounding novelists of the 21st century You re a lunatic if you don t realize this as soon as possible.

    6. Alexis on said:

      This book was supposedly based on stories about the band Broken Social scene I wanted to like this book a lot than I did I was impressed with the beginning, but it fell flat.

    7. Samantha Everts on said:

      I could re read this a thousand times Based on the real life story of BSS and Stars hitting the road for the first time.

    8. Jamie on said:

      Very good, especially if you are a follower of the indie music scene.

    9. Cara on said:

      Good writing Not too bad, though not my favourite book It got really good towards the end Very interesting look at the music industry.

    10. Adina on said:

      Finally started reading this and loving it I was afraid of the dense prose at first, but it flows like a good rock riff.
