review 1: As a lover of both music and a good memoir, Songs Only You Know transports the reader into the life a Midwestern white male. He is fairly average in many ways: not a genius, not an athlete, and has some vague connection to the others in his family. However, he manages to take his otherwise average life and becomes rising rock star, disillusioned youth, then adult, and mourner of life all in a few chapters. You will definitely feel as if you are the audience member at his destructive rock gigs, swaying to garbled rhymes with both intensity and sadness. I am looking forward to his other works and highly suggest reading this memoir if you are not really an autobiographical sort of reader but love a good melody and an even better journey.
review 2: I debated whethe
... morer to give Songs Only You Know by Sean Madigan Hoen 3 or 4 stars. I really enjoyed the prose, the depth the narrator delves to discover who he is. Hoen's memoir is a hard pill to swallow with many dark alleys and heart-wrenching stories. But he crafts this book in such a way to make it stand on it's own as a personal story of triumph in the face of unfortunate hurdles. The writing, in and of itself, carried this memoir and bumped my rating from a 3.5 to a 4. Hoen is a refreshing, new voice and separates himself in this candid, honest work. less
