The Music Teacher
My Review: I have had quiet a few music teachers, and was really curious why someone would want to write a novel about a music teacher. The inside summary of the book mentioned students teaching the teacher, not just learning from the teacher. I thought that would be great to read about. But after reading half the book I had yet to learn a lesson, and had yet to find anything good about the story. Pearl is all depressed, and complains, works in a depressing music store, wishes she could reconnect with her Ex-husband, but can't. Even in the end there are so many unresolved issues, it leaves me as the reader hating life, and really disliking this book.
Pros: written very well, author is able to attack your emotions and pull you along a very hard unhappy road called The Music Teacher
Cons: very depressing, all about sex and unhappy drugged up, drunk and smoking people, the star of the book is a little girl who is beaten in her "foster" home.
