The interview style, switching back and forth between main characters, could have been very unsettling. Luckily, it was the opposite! The book read like a Rolling Stones feature interview, and I think that if it had been written any other way, the overall story would not have been so effective. Reid beautifully captures the rock-n-roll era -- the recording of tracks, the decision in which order to place them, the album cover artwork -- so flawlessly that you feel as if you are PART of Daisy's band. The underlying themes of addiction and true love are superbly handled as well.
1. Is Camilla really stupid or really smart in her handling of being Billy's wife? Why?
2. Can you have more than one soulmate? Does Billy? Explain.
3. Karen's choice is controversial, especially for the times. She asks Graham if he would be willing to give up his dream in order to be a parent. And, if not, why should she? Discuss.
