  1. It s nice to finally read an author in the romance genre who doesn t subscribe to what I ve seen as the cliche of romantic fiction I enjoy getting a male perspective Mr Lipson is a skilled writer He s taken care with his word choices, didn t settle for lazy sentence structure, and he tells a good story.I d not read anything in the romance, chick lit, genres before I found out that s the genre I write lol Now, I m searching for authors who do it well and from whom I can learn the nuances from I l [...]

  4. Having been very fortunate to win this book on a good read s giveaway I was hoping it would be a mildly reasonable read but as it was a freebie I wouldn t have been too worried if it had turned out to be a stinker Therefore I was than pleasantly surprised to discover that Simon Lipson is an extremely talented writer who has woven a wonderfully soulful, funny and credible story around the life of Londoner Mike Kenton, IT underachiever, and his search for his long buried musical dream in the afte [...]

  7. I received an author inscribed copy of Song in the Wrong Key as a First Reads winner I really enjoyed this story of a stuck going nowhere IT man father husband who begins the ride of his life just when he thinks he s hit bottom The author s style is wry and witty, and thoroughly British, with lots of Brit references that I, as an American reader, didn t always get, but could figure the gist of fairly easily.As a former theatre major in college, I could understand an identify with the protagonist [...]

  9. I received this book from a giveaway It was a good story I don t know if I would call it laugh out loud funny, but the main character was a believable goof I loved that he was a great dad, and really wanted to be with his kids That was his most endearing quality I enjoyed the way he got in caught up in life Weather he was on the up or down, his main way of living was to ride the tide A bit sad of a story than I expected, but the funny parts were really funny.


  10. Song In The Wrong Key was hilarious, sarcastic, and well written Definitely a comedy that deserves applause I m not a huge fan of books that are riddled with cursing and sexual adventures so I might have given it one less star, but the voice of Michael Kenton was real and uproariously clever Never a dull moment, I dare you not to laugh


  11. Song in the Wrong Key is funny, with dry wit, terribly sad, and a totally charming story about love, loss, and finding your way Simon Lipson has taken a topic that could be deadly dull and turned it into a must read.I give this story 4 out of 5 clouds.This product or book may have been distributed for review this in no way affects my opinions or reviews.


  12. Simon Lipson s Song in the Wrong Key is a humorous and sometimes poignant novel about a middle aged man whose life is in a downward spiral To read my review in its entirety, please visit bookreviewsandbykathy.


  13. A simple plot and narrative , written in an amazing, bitter sweet style, that makes it endearing to the very last page Touches on family, friendships, loss and every human emotion that we will perhaps experience with great insensitivity.


  14. The description of Song In The Wrong Key intrigued me so I decided to enter the first reads giveaway and to my surprise I was a winner This is a story of Michael Keaton, husband and father who loses his job and ends up going back to singing I enjoyed this book and it s message.


  15. I absolutely loved this book, brilliantly observant A real page turner, or swiper if you ve got a Kindle It made me laugh and cry simultaneously I just hope this author keeps writing, I want to read Peacock
