Big Al’s Books and Pals Book Blog: “Walk, Don’t Run is a read you should enjoy.”
One of the quotes plugging this book calls it “this generation’s American Graffiti” and also calls it “Happy Days slammed into Resurrection Boulevard.” That comparison is helpful in many ways except for the obvious difference, that unlike the movie and TV shows, this story is real.
It is the story of a group of kids, growing from teen to young adults, finding their way in the world. You’ll find both humorous and inspiring sections. The characters, although real in the book, are also fun people you wouldn’t mind hanging out with. It even has a larger than life character like “The Fonz” in Eddie Olmos, better known today as actor Eddie James Olmos.
If you’re into memoirs or biographies of rock bands and musicians, Walk, Don’t Run is a read you should enjoy. I did. If you have a thing for the 60s, you’ll find something to like as well.
