Overall, I thought this was a great read. I liked Bret's character and feel his story is one that a lot of people can relate to. Bret is struggling with a life he thinks he should live, but when unexpected people enter his life, they help him evolve. This is a great coming of age story, and from a person who isn't exceptionally musically inclined, I enjoyed that aspect of the book immensely. Beyond The Precipice is definitely worth the read.
