Krovatin really strikes a power chord with "Heavy Metal and You." The language and dialogue are alive and true. The characters are full and believable. The story is what every metal head with a conscience must experience and endure.
I came from a generation of metal heads prior to Krovatin’s. Born in 1970, I remember when Metallica first hit the scene and Slayer’s ‘death metal’ was a new sound. Still, I tried to find myself in a world of phonies, copycats, and wannabes. “Heavy Metal and You” is my story as it is for thousands of other guys whose adolescents was spent loving heavy music and pretty girls but couldn’t make them love each other.
This is a must read for anyone who is looking for the heart of that passionate, artistic guy with an Iron Maiden t-shirt in your language arts class.

Heavy Metal and You is an amazing book! About how, boy meets girl, girl meets boy's friends isn't impressed, friends meet girl aren't impressed.
A breathtaking novel on what Sam Markus goes through while he is dating this girl. The book comes to life as you read it and the characters are life like and the vivid settings in none other then New York.
An excellent book and a great read for the metal heads in all of us!

Awesome. You have inspired me to go read it. Next time I go to B&N, that's exactly what I'm picking up. Thanks for the great review! I needed something different to read.

Leila

Rad. I hope you like it -- if you think of it, check back in when you're done and let me know!

Cindy

I got it just last night and and of course I was hooked! I read it all in one night, couldn't stop, actually and I think I fell in love with Sammy too, lol. And even though I don't like metal, I am a music lover, so I was amazed at all his knowledge about music and everything. I just want to say thanks *again* for recommending such a great book to me! Your reviews always help me out when I'm trying to decide which book I'm going to buy.

Wow that reveiw has inspired me to read it! I mean, i had skimmed through it before in the book store and it looked really intresting but i couldnt get it for the obvious reasons: Too expensive and i was pretty much broke at that time. But one of my freinds is reading it and shes like "OMFG YOU NEED TO READ IT!" XD but i went to the book store the other day and the price went waaaaaaaaay down so i got it. And I really Like it! I like it because I, am i music lover and personally a musician. So even when i fins=ish it im gonna read it over and over again.
