The Music Shop Reviews

  • Jill Croce-McGill

    This is my first book by Rachel Joyce and definitely won't be my last!

    The Music Shop is a heartwarming story about Frank, a vinyl-only music shop owner. Set in 1988, the music shop attracts the lonely and sleepless crowd. Frank has a special gift for connecting his customers with just the right vinyl record they need. Then one day Ilse Brauchmann, a beautiful young woman, walks into the shop and turns Frank's world upside down.

    Wonderful, quirky, and eccentric characters fill this nontraditiona

    This novel has the ingredients that I love to consume: quirky characters, music references (I LOVE music!), David vs Goliath situations, unlikely friendships. Unfortunately, the way they were mixed up resulted in a hard to swallow, boring dish.

    I never got a clear image of the characters, and worst of all, I never really cared, so that made the reading of this novel feel like work when it shouldn't have been.

    I hate to say this, but all the music trivia, at times felt like unnecessary information

    The Music Shop is not just about a music shop - it’s a love story unlike any other. I was undecided whether to give this book 4 stars or 5 stars but when I got tears in my eyes at the end, that decided for me! A FABULOUS book!!

    DNF at 50%

    I won this novel courtesy of a Goodreads Giveaway and although my regular reading material is crime fiction, I am not averse to some of these whimsical novels with quirky characters and a sense of optimism that often make for a genuinely feel-good read. I loved both The Rosie Project and Effect, for example, but have never found myself drawn to the work of Rachel Joyce despite the many rave reviews I have read.

    Sadly, I found The Music Shop to be so interminably slow that at 50% I had t

    ‘I don’t care what anyone tells me. The future’s vinyl,’ he said.

    . . .

    ‘Life has surface noise! Do you want to listen to furniture polish?’


    Frank is a rumpled older fellow with a large, eclectic collection of vinyl records in a rundown shop in a rundown little side-street in a rundown part of London, which developers are eyeing for new housing.

    Kit is the clumsy kid he’s taken under his wing to help out in the shop (when he isn’t breaking things), and there ae various side characters who also

    I'm somewhere between 4 and 4.5 stars.

    "Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and cannot remain silent." —Victor Hugo

    Music has always been one of my greatest passions, alongside my love of reading. I have the largest iPod Apple ever made, and it doesn't accommodate my entire music collection—how can I get rid of a song?

    For me, music is such a trigger of emotion, and a specific song can easily transport me to a time, a place, a special memory. So why it took me so long to read Rache

    Ever since Harold Fry went on a walk across the UK in Rachel Joyce's 2012 debut novel The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, I like many readers the world over have been enthralled by the author's ability to represent ordinary people with grace and dignity.

    This is something that continues in what is Rachel's fourth novel. Set in the late 80's in recession hit England, Frank runs a record store. Not only does he have a love for vinyl and will staunchly resist pressure from record companies that w

    The Music Shop is a beautifully written novel about a small street in a London suburb in the late 1980s. It is an homage to music, and as a lover of music myself, I found it a joy to read. I savored the musical references, lyrics and band/composer trivia. Joyce also highlights the benefits of community and relationships while crafting genuinely wonderful characters that will stay with me for a long time.

    My favorite part of the book is the focus on music and its benefits. Frank, the main characte
