Hey guys 🙂
Today I want to talk about a book that deals with music (and I will also do so tomorrow).
“Come As You Are” tells the true story about Kurt Cobain and Nirvana.
So far I’ve read this book about 5 or 6 times. I really like it because it transports emotions so well. Sometimes it
feels like it’s Kurt Cobain who’s telling his own story and you completely forget that you are ‘only’ reading a book.You get inside on Kurt’s life before Nirvana, you learn about everything that influenced him somehow, from his parents’ divorce to the first time he heard about Punk Rock. How difficult his time at school was and how hard he was trying to start a band and keep it going. You also see how the fame changed everything for him, how much he was suffering, all the problems he was having.
Sounds a bit silly but this book touches you heart. It’s so hard not to cry when you read the end and Kurt’s letter. I think Michael Azzerad managed to capture Kurt’s life, his thoughts and his feelings just perfectly.
Go ahead, read it 🙂
