Behrg Reviews: “We Sold Our Souls” by Grady Hendrix
“We Sold Our Souls” is a deft thrill-ride into a heavy-metal acid road trip where the has-been rockstar’s conspiracy theories all turn out to be completely true, despite being completely bonkers.
This book is a prime example of why you shouldn’t give up on a read too early. (And yes, I know there are plenty of examples of books you SHOULD have given up on earlier, but come on, you can read those one star reviews later). One thing I appreciate in Hendrix’s writing is that he’s not afraid to go against the grain. You won’t find your traditional paint-by-the-numbers thriller when you pick up one of his books, but you will find a unique vision from an author who’s willing to buck the trends and deliver a story you won’t find anywhere else. To me, these are the authors that should be celebrated even when they have a miss. Because they aren’t bunting, they’re swinging for the fences.
Baseball and music analogies in a single review, I think that means it’s time to shut the laptop down. A definite recommend for anyone interested in an unconventional read from an unconventional mind. Looking forward to where Hendrix leads us next.
