Creative and original fictional work. Spanish war orphan is raised by a blind guitar virtuoso and then embarks on his own career, rising to great heights and falling deeply. He often loses his way but recovers when he returns to his musical roots. Narrator is Music.

I loved it. I have a feeling that I'm not capable of not liking anything that Mitch Albom has written or will write.

Found this book by accident on the way out. Soooo glad I borrowed it. Perhaps the best Mitch Albom book ever. A great read - couldn’t put it down.

When words are not enough, it is the beautiful language of music that binds people together. This is the theme of this book narrated my music itself. It follows Frankie Presto throughout his life and tells tales of how his music came to influence so many people and how he altered the lives of 6, including himself. As much as I love this author, I can't say I was completely absorbed into this book. It wasn't until the last 15 pages when I glad I didn't give up on it. However, he still did an amazing job connecting the various people and events together that spanned over several decades.

One of my all-time favorite stories. I've enjoyed several of the other Mitch Albom books, but this one was amazing. The story, the characters, the musical references, all wonderful. I listened on audiobook and I can't imagine that it would be as good to read, as the numerous people voicing the different characters made it that much better.

The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto is "Magic". The narrator of this story is music and it takes us on an unforgettable trip through Frankie's life.

It was truly enchanting and I found it to be like nothing that I’ve ever read.

Mitch Albom creates a fictional character who lives through the very influential time of music, from the classics through Elvis and Woodstock to a current country star. Frankie isn't perfect and he suffers some of the pitfalls that musicians often encounter, but he is a sympathetic protagonist. You learn about many historical composers and musicians as Frankie makes his way through the musical landscape.
