    ‘’The silence at the beginning of a piece of music is always different from the silence at the end.’’The blurb of this beautiful book contained two words that won me over on the spot. ‘’Music’’ and ‘’1980s’’. I was born in 1985, so technically, I am a child of the 90s, but I think that these two decades share the same spirit of a certain kind of innocence, before the coming of the new millennium and all the ‘’gifts’’ it brought (yeah, right…) I’m not a big fan [...]

    This is a wonderful novel set in the late 1980s London, that evokes the culture and music of the era, and the economic decline hitting local communities and the ever encroachment of developers threatening the identity of a place, and its people. In the midst of the change taking place is Frank, running his Indie Music Shop, welcoming everyone and drawing an offbeat crowd. The CD has taken off, but Frank is not interested, preferring vinyl, in which there is a current resurgence. Amidst the growi [...]

    The Music Shop by Rachel Joyce is a 2018 Random House publication. A quirky, but sweet love story wrapped inside a loving ode to music-I love stories like this one where a group of people, from various walks of life, all of whom are misfits or eccentric in one way or another, but are kind and giving souls, converge to create a delightful and unique tale of friendship and love.The music shop is the absolute perfect backdrop for such a story, reminding us of how important a role music, of all kind [...]

    I'm somewhere between 4 and 4.5 stars."Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and cannot remain silent."—Victor HugoMusic has always been one of my greatest passions, alongside my love of reading. I have the largest iPod Apple ever made, and it doesn't accommodate my entire music collection—how can I get rid of a song?For me, music is such a trigger of emotion, and a specific song can easily transport me to a time, a place, a special memory. So why it took me so long to read Rac [...]

    What a delightful and enjoyable read "The Music Shop" by Rachel Joyce is! It doesn't demand constant attention or keep you awake at night, it's just a lovely nostalgic story that makes you feel so happy when reading it, it's almost like you're floating through the pages (though the ending did have me in emotional goosebumps). "The Music Shop" is a very character driven novel. Set in 1988 the story is about Frank who owns a music shop selling only vinyl records - don't mention Cd's!! He knows eve [...]

    4.5★“‘I don’t care what anyone tells me. The future’s vinyl,’ he said . . ‘Life has surface noise! Do you want to listen to furniture polish?’Frank is a rumpled older fellow with a large, eclectic collection of vinyl records in a rundown shop in a rundown little side-street in a rundown part of London, which developers are eyeing for new housing.Kit is the clumsy kid he’s taken under his wing to help out in the shop (when he isn’t breaking things), and there ae various side c [...]

    2.5 rounded up A cast of quirky, misfits who are drawn to each other with Frank at the center in this neighborhood in Great Britain in 1988. You might call him the music whisperer with his knack for choosing songs that tend to elevate people depending on their circumstances. Frank owns a music store selling only vinyl records, refusing to go with the popular CD. His talent for knowing just what music will fix what ails other people is fun to watch as lonely, sad people listen to the music he cho [...]

    !! NOW AVAILABLE !!4.5 Stars”There was once a music shop. From the outside it looked like any shop, in any backstreet. It had no name above the door. No record display in the window. There was just a homemade poster stuck to the glass. FOR THE MUSIC YOU NEED!! EVERYONE WELCOME!! WE ONLY SELL VINYL!!”The shop was difficult to navigate with boxes packed in everywhere one looked; every nook and cranny had records, although none were classified. There were two booths for listening with turntable [...]

    Barely 3 stars. So dull I loved Rachel Joyce's The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry and The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy. She has a talent for delving into deep emotions through quirky characters. The Music Shop set off to do the same, but unfortunately I didn't feel like it delivered. In the 1980s, Frank runs a small vinyl record shop. He is huge and sensitive. He has a knack for connecting people with music that soothes their troubled souls. Visitors to the shop adore him. But vinyl is [...]

    It’s 1988 and Frank sells vinyl records on a small street in a depressed part of town. He refuses to sell CDs even when the distributors all threaten to drop him. He loves music and is able to match a person with the music they need. What he doesn’t think he needs is love. There’s a dry wit to the book. The characters are a group of misfits and oddballs and there’s humor in their dialog and activities. It’s also a well written book. A book that makes you think. When Peg discusses how m [...]

    3.5 Stars* (rounded down).A quirky, sweet, easy read.Frank has always loved music, it was a gift from Peg, his mother. He is a music shop owner who only sells Vinyl records. The year is 1988. Everyone under the sun wants him to start selling CD’s but Frank refuses. For him, Vinyl is where its at. Frank has a gift - he can feel what music a person needs to hear. The person could be a stranger or a friend. They might come in asking for a specific record or just asking for a song or a type of mus [...]

    This is one of those books where I want to use the phrase "I liked it but I didn't love it." In other words it was nice but not as good as I had hoped. The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy still remains my favourite book by this author by far.I liked the setting in the run down music shop in an even more run down area of town. I really liked the time period and I enjoyed several of the characters especially Frank himself and the accident prone Kit. It was unfortunate that I also liked the Sing [...]

    Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || || PinterestHere's the thing: the concept is great. Frank owns a record store in the 1980s, when records are beginning to be replaced by CDs. He holds fast to his beloved records, falls in love, and his favorite music becomes the soundtrack to his pursuit of the forbidden woman, interspersed with the memories of the music from his childhood, with his tempestuous, eccentric mother.I think Rachel Joyce wanted to write the next HIGH FIDELITY, but she doesn't hav [...]

    Rachel Joyce is a master at writing about ordinary people and their often hidden struggles, and celebrating their courage and resilience in the face of those struggles. In “The Music Shop” she once again writes about those “ordinary” people in a clear-eyed, unsentimental, and inspiring manner. The book focuses on a group of seemingly unremarkable people who have businesses on Unity Street. At the center of those shops and of the story itself is Frank and his music shop. Frank has an unus [...]

    4 starsOverall a very heartwarming, beautiful story about friendship, love & a neighborhood full of amazing shop owners. If your a big music fan, this book is for you. The whole book centers around a vinyl record store and the owner loves music and often reflects on some of his favorite bands and memories associated with music.

    This novel has the ingredients that I love to consume: quirky characters, music references (I LOVE music!), David vs Goliath situations, unlikely friendships. Unfortunately, the way they were mixed up resulted in a hard to swallow, boring dish. I never got a clear image of the characters, and worst of all, I never really cared, so that made the reading of this novel feel like work when it shouldn't have been.I hate to say this, but all the music trivia, at times felt like unnecessary information [...]

    This is my first book by Rachel Joyce and definitely won't be my last! The Music Shop is a heartwarming story about Frank, a vinyl-only music shop owner. Set in 1988, the music shop attracts the lonely and sleepless crowd. Frank has a special gift for connecting his customers with just the right vinyl record they need. Then one day Ilse Brauchmann, a beautiful young woman, walks into the shop and turns Frank's world upside down. Wonderful, quirky, and eccentric characters fill this nontraditiona [...]

    The Music Shop is a beautifully written novel about a small street in a London suburb in the late 1980s. It is an homage to music, and as a lover of music myself, I found it a joy to read. I savored the musical references, lyrics and band/composer trivia. Joyce also highlights the benefits of community and relationships while crafting genuinely wonderful characters that will stay with me for a long time.My favorite part of the book is the focus on music and its benefits. Frank, the main charact [...]

    "Sometimes all the people needed was to know they were not alone. Other times it was more a question of keeping them in touch with their feelings until they wore them out—people clung to what was familiar, even when it was painful."I so enjoyed this book, which seemed like the music version of one of my favorite books from last year, How to Find Love in a Bookshop. Frank has a special gift for helping people find the music that they don't realize they need. Some come looking for healing, other [...]

    DNF at 50%I won this novel courtesy of a Giveaway and although my regular reading material is crime fiction, I am not averse to some of these whimsical novels with quirky characters and a sense of optimism that often make for a genuinely feel-good read. I loved both The Rosie Project and Effect, for example, but have never found myself drawn to the work of Rachel Joyce despite the many rave reviews I have read.Sadly, I found The Music Shop to be so interminably slow that at 50% I had to put thi [...]

    Frank was wandering with no particular purpose in mind when he saw the abandoned old shop with the for sale sign in front. He knew without a shadow of doubt that this was what he wanted – a quiet street, other small shops around – the shop was a mess, and Frank wasn’t that handy. But it wasn’t long before Frank’s music shop was filled with records; vinyl only – no tapes or CDs (trashy stuff!) – his records had customers coming to his door. Frank found them the music they needed, mu [...]

    The Music Shop is not just about a music shop - it’s a love story unlike any other. I was undecided whether to give this book 4 stars or 5 stars but when I got tears in my eyes at the end, that decided for me! A FABULOUS book!!

    This was a lovely book spanning a twenty-one year period about a stretch of shops in London with the address of "Unity Street." This turns out to be a metaphor for the way the various shop owners band together to support each other through personal and financial challenges. There are twin brothers with a funeral parlor, a female tattoo artist, a Polish baker, a religious store run by an ex-priest, and the music shop. These business establishments face a row of apartments opposite that have seen [...]

    Follow Book Nation by Jen booknationbyjen.wordpressFor all my reviews and recommendations. I picked up The Music Shop at the perfect time! So enjoyable, I laughed - I cried- it touched me. review to come!

    I highly recommend this quirky and charming book, especially for music lovers. Within the bigger picture is a love letter to music masters that will touch your heart.It is 1988 and Frank’s world is changing. He is the owner of a dying vinyl record store located on a run-down street soon to be demolished in the name of ‘progress’. The music world is also changing but Frank is digging in his heals, refusing to move on to the new craze of cds and cassette tapes. I loved Frank’s steadfast de [...]

    Ever since Harold Fry went on a walk across the UK in Rachel Joyce's 2012 debut novel The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, I like many readers the world over have been enthralled by the author's ability to represent ordinary people with grace and dignity.This is something that continues in what is Rachel's fourth novel. Set in the late 80's in recession hit England, Frank runs a record store. Not only does he have a love for vinyl and will staunchly resist pressure from record companies that w [...]

    I am a sucker for books about music. And music as therapy: even more so. (Did you know you can obtain a college degree in music therapy? Well, you can). So… about The Music ShopThere is a music store on a dead end street in England somewhere owned by Frank. “Frank could not play music, he could not read a score, he had no practical knowledge whatsoever, but when he sat in front of a customer and truly listened, he heard a kind of song. And that’s how he helped people.”Frank not only help [...]

    Rachel Joyce's books are so well written for "modern novels". I enjoyed this slow romance between Frank and Ilse and music of all genres. There is even a playlist on Spotify to accompany the story's musical threads!

    "Bon appetit"I devoured this enchanting tale created by Rachel Joyce. It was captivating, enlightening, moving, and even exasperating at times. It's not the kind of novel that is overly gratifying at least not at first that's where the exasperation comes in, but in the end, I found it to be very rewarding. Meet Frank Frank is a 40 year old single man that owns a music shop. "I'm going to help people find music." Frank could not play music, he could not read a score, he had no practical knowledge [...]

    “He played the whole record, side one and then side two. As he listened, Frank smoked and danced in the cramped space behind his turntable, rolling his shoulders and swinging his hips – watching him, even Maud began to sway – while Kit did something that was possibly the funky chicken, but could equally be to do with his new shoes hurting his feet”The Music Shop is the fourth full-length novel by best-selling British author, Rachel Joyce. Frank would only sell vinyl. It didn’t matter t [...]
