Reader's Diary #1787- RaisinGirl: The Day Rock and Roll Changed the World

RaisinGirl's "The Day Rock and Roll Changed the World" features an odd assortment of characters; Walrus, Sergeant Pepper, the Gallagher brothers of Oasis, Jim Morrison, Edgar Allan Poe, and Frodo.

It's like the old dinner party scenario where fictional, real, living, and dead characters can all be invited. Worked into the story is a lot of references to Beatles and Oasis songs in particular.

So it's fun and I was entertained, but it's hardly a literary masterpiece and a bit uneven and pointless. It won't, in other words, "change the world." That said, not a bad idea for a writing exercise.
