Whale MusicF Toronto This girl has made the trek to Des’s hideaway because she believes in the “Whale Music” and she’s crazy enough to think that Des can make a comeback hit with his mad magnum op. Paul uarrington is a funny uirky writer Whale Music as did King Leary reminds me of Dickens Christmas Carol The protagonist must deal with the ghosts of the past present futureDes Howl ne Desmond Howell has a lot of ghosts People drugs alcohol he has them all But he has also retained his musical genius How Des finds a way to carry on with his life is the focus of this storyI liked a lot of Whale Music but some parts made me uncomfortable The scenes in Des’ studio while he was writing Whale Music were great His description of his parents was laugh out loud funny in parts I understand that the relationship between Claire Des was central to his “redemption” as it as but I found their age difference disturbing the relationship itself underdeveloped I’m sure the rock roll lifestyle hasn’t changed that much in almost 30 years so overall I appreciated this look into a completely different world
