Sorry it has taken me so long to get this up!
This is a book review for the book 'A Beautiful Mess' The story of Diamond Rio with Tom Roland.
To start off I would like to give credit to the writer for producing this book. Books are definitely not an easy task to take on. While I appreciate the effort and time that was put into the making of this book, I did not enjoy it at all. To be honest, it was one of those books that start slow and stay slow. It got a bit better toward the end but not much. I found it dry and difficult to read. It was hard to concentrate and was not something I really cared to read. It might have been because it was my first time reading what was basically an autobiography written by someone else. But I didn't care for the style it was written in. I think that perhaps huge Diamond Rio fans would enjoy it though. You get a very good inside look at how the band came to be and the struggles that they each go through. The author does have an eye for detail and it is obvious that quite a lot of research went into the writing of this story. As I said in the beginning I appreciate the work put in by the author but it was just not this reviewer's cup of tea.
