I thought it was just such a pleasant book! There was no "Oh look, controversy! Let me think about this for a while after I read it.". Most of the time that sort of thing is good in a book, but nowadays, every book is trying to get me to think and philosophize. A book that doesn't do that is probably bad, but this one was pulled off well. It was sweet, and has a simplicity that real life doesn't have. And that's why I loved it so much. (honestly, all you authors out there, Lighten up.). Some other pleasant books that I've read are "the night circus", "Once upon a marigold" and... I guess that's it. You'd think there'd be more lighthearted books out there.

Urm just awful. No plot just cheesy letters and wow! That ending part when the author wants to make you get all " Wow amazing" or just caught up? Stupid. Just stupid, kinda like " If I stay" but worse.... A lot worse. It's a love story with predictable moments and boring problems/solutions. Blah!

Sweet little story, quick and easy read. The ending's a little melodramatic, but the characters and plot are good and it was well executed.

I think Guitar Notes is a good book if you are thinking about learning how to play the guitar. This book really help me see how fun the guitar can be.

Two teenagers, one passionate about guitar and the other a prodigy cellist, form an unlikely friendship over a shared school instrument and a practice room. They shrug off family pressures to play music together. A sweet story, slightly predictable but capturing the joy of music. But one of the parents is sadistically cruel, and it troubles me that her behavior is written off as a mistake, no big deal, easy to fix—whereas I think it borders on psychological abuse.

If this book was turned into a movie I would totally watch it.

Terrific epistolary novel involving 2 high school kids using the same practice room. Makes you want to play and compose music. Very sweet little love story. The ending is too much -- but you don't care, you are rooting for the characters so much. Anyone making music should read it.
