Summary:

From the beloved author of the #1 New York Times bestsellers Tuesdays with Morrie and The Five People You Meet in Heaven comes his most critically acclaimed novel yet—a stunningly original tale of love: love between a man and a woman, between an artist and his mentor, and between a musician and his God-given talent.

Narrated by the voice of Music itself, the story follows Frankie Presto, a war orphan born in a burning church, through his extraordinary journey around the world. Raised by a blind guitar teacher in Spain and gifted with a talent to change people’s lives—using six mysterious blue strings—Frankie navigates the musical landscape of the twentieth century, from the 1950s jazz scene to the Grand Ole Opry to Elvis mania and Woodstock, all the while searching for his childhood love.

As he becomes a famous star, he loses his way, until tragedy steals his ability to play the guitar that had so defined him. Overwhelmed by his loss, Frankie disappears for decades, reemerging late in life for one spectacular yet mystifying farewell.

Part love story, part magical mystery, The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto is Mitch Albom at his finest, a Forrest Gump-like epic about one man’s journey to discover what truly matters and the power of talent to change our lives.

    The way Mitch brings Frankie to life through all these real people is so creative and moving. I don't want him to be fictional so he will live on in my heart. Such an amazing audio book.

  • Della P.

    Wonderful story and narration!

  • Claire B.

    Couple of great curve balls which kept it unpredictable as well as enchanting, enthralling. Loved every second of it.

  • David R.

    The best book I have ever listened to! It had so many references to actual people and places that it almost seemed to be a real story. The audio version has to be better than the paper version because it has interviews woven into the story with many artists. My favorite was Paul Stanley of Kiss. Such a good book!!!

  • Stephen G.

    My new favorite book! I would recommend this book to anyone, especially on audio. I was so sucked in and swept up I found myself searching my mind for a memory of Frankie Presto, (yes, I realize he's a fictional character) Mitch Albom did it again with this novel! TWO THUMBS UP!
