Amazon customer Tony Parsons gave Pixels of Young Mueller 5 out of 5 stars, calling it “very well written” with “a lot of enlightening scenarios and a host of great characters,” a book that “could make a great movie or TV series.” Here’s the review:
Klaus Mueller dreams about leaving Southland someday to be a rock star. He chooses the so called glamorous lifestyle over college. He has lots/lots of setbacks: poor paying or unfit jobs, and his music is constantly being rejected.
Fast forward he moves to Chicago, IL he finds a career and becomes a father. Klaus is still not thoroughly happy with his current lifestyle.
It’s amazing since I have started reading regular people’s books instead of college textbooks how many others struggle besides musicians, such as writers and artists. 9 to 5 is that really what we want out of our life?
Cool book cover, great font and writing style. A very well written true to life book. It was very easy to read/follow and never a dull moment from start/finish. No grammar errors, repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. A lot of enlightening scenarios and a host of great characters. This could make a great movie or TV series. A book you must read to the end. No doubt in my mind a very easy rating of 5 stars for this book.
Pixels of Young Mueller is available at Amazon. Check it out!
My wife and daughter worked this cool 1000-piece literary jigsaw puzzle from White Mountain Puzzles, so I’m sharing it before they take it apart.
I read fewer books this year than ever—and I thought last year was bad! Despite the fact that the reasons for this are really good ones, it is with slight embarrassment that I present this meager list of books I read in 2013:
- The Zen of Social Media Marketing (Shama Kabani)
- Coincidences (Maria Savva)
- Databases Demystified, 2/e (Andy Oppel)
- Burmese Days (George Orwell)
Next year can only be better. I’m in the middle of a huge book now and have started two others (all nonfiction), so I’m off to a good start.
Here are my top 10 favorite novels. Admittedly, language limitations have prevented me from reading several of these in the language in which they were originally written, but I list them here nevertheless, as I am no less in love with them as the result of having read translated versions. The list:
- Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (James Joyce)
- The Way of All Flesh (Samuel Butler)
- The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman (Laurence Sterne)
- Ulysses (James Joyce)
- Don Quixote (Miguel de Cervantes)
- Malone Dies (Samuel Beckett)
- Wilhelm Meister’s Apprenticeship (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)
- Confessions of Zeno (Italo Svevo)
- On the Road (Jack Kerouac)
- Look Homeward, Angel (Thomas Wolfe)
