    1 thought on “Cool For Cats

    1. I really enjoyed this. It's chick lit with a twist but actually I found it quite touching in places. If you've ever thought of music as playing an important part in your life or at least thinking about times in your life as having a soundtrack then I think you'll get this book.Also I do love a retro setting - in this case the 1970's. So it's all payphones and buying houses for £25,000 against a background of punk music.Linda seemed a bit annoying at first and quite immature but then when you re [...]

    2. Easy read. Linda is a very likeable character - at least to me. I could relate to get a lot. The music/bands are brilliant but it lost a star from me for trying to put every post punk band ever in 1979. Altered Images for example didn't release their first single until 1981. I don't think it would have a changed the story much to have it over a couple of years - maybe 1979 until 1980. It also made me feel sad for the loss of the music press as I was an avid reader of the NME, Melody Maker and Se [...]

    3. Another book from the charity shelves at the hospital by an author I had never heard of that caught my eye because the title was a song title and the reviews quoted by respected sources such as Times and Telegraph said it was good. It was indeed a gripping tale of an overawed girl joining a somewhat dysfunctional music publication team in 1979 and her exposure to a lot of good music and musicians. I thoroughly enjoyed it, the mixture of excitement at being part of the scene with counterpoint of [...]

    4. We were with my boyfriend in a second hand bookshop, he picked this one and gave it to me saying here is some chicklit for you. He knows I like chicklit, he saw me buying L. Weisberger's book recently.And I must admit he has made a good pick. This book is a lot about personal choices and most of it is about music and fashion and liberty. Reading this I have regretted I have never been a punk ;-(. Then I went on youtube to check Linda's selection of 10 song that changed her life.My book has anoth [...]

    5. Read this mid February but forgot to update Good Reads with the details. I bought this book during one of my TradeMe shopping sprees where I looked up fiction books with the keyword of music. Then like many other books it was left on the shelf until I rescued it one afternoon when I wanted some light reading. The music references were fun and there were parts that made me giggle out loud. The main character's rock journalism reminded me of when I was 16 and longed to work for Kerrang! or Blunt o [...]

    6. I picked this book up at a $5 book barn on a rainy day when I recognised the title as a song by Squeeze. It was a fun, casual read about a music journalist in London, 1979 when Punk and New Wave was mainstream. I'm not sure if I liked it so much as to read Jessica's other works, but I like this genre of music and that definitely helped me enjoy it.

    7. I like this author and this is the second of her books I have read. I was disappointed to find though that the two books have the samed 4 core elements - a journalist, a doomed relationship, Brighton and an Australian.

    8. For anyone who enjoyed the UK music scene of the late 70's, this is a fun read. The main character struggles thru relationships, friendships while landing her dream job at a fictional start up music magazine in London after growing up in a boring suburb of Brighton.
