"It's 1988. The CD has arrived. Sales of the shiny new disks are soaring on high streets in cities across the country.

There is room for everyone. Frank has a gift for finding his customers the music they need. Into this shop arrives Ilse Brauchmann - practical, brave, well-heeled. Frank falls for this curious woman who always dresses in green. But Ilse's reasons for visiting the shop are not what they seem. Frank's passion for Ilse seems as misguided as his determination to save vinyl. How can a man so in tune with other people's needs be so incapable of helping himself? And what will it take to show he loves her? The Music Shop is a story about good, ordinary people who take on forces too big for them. It's about falling in love and how hard it can be.

As I read The Music Shop, I found myself wishing that I knew Frank and that he could direct me to music and songs he felt I would like or that would be right for me. Having said that, Frank was the only character I felt anything for in this book. I have read all of Rachel Joyce's other books, and loved each one, so was looking forward to this new one, but was a bit disappointed. I love reading about quirky, awkward people because so much of society is that way, and the media generally does not portray people that way. But after reading a bit, I found I had to force myself to pick this book up and read.
Overall it was just ok. I did feel that the ending was too silly. But other than that, it was just sort of a "blah" read for me, not that interesting; other than Frank, I did not really care about any of the characters. I would definitely recommend other Rachel Joyce books, among them, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry and The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessey, but would recommend this with reservations.

Thank you Random House for an advance copy of The Music Shop in exchange for an honest review. ( )

A sweet easy story, filled with music reference you’ll want to hear.
1988. Frank owns a music shop. It is jam-packed with records of every speed, size and genre. Classical, jazz, punk – as long as it’s vinyl he sells it. Day after day Frank finds his customers the music they need. Then into his life walks Ilse Brauchmann. Frank is a misfit, socially awkward but knows music. Isle is running away. Really enjoyed it, and I should go back and listen to all the music Frank recommends for his customers. ( )

I loved learning more about enjoyable classical music. I didn't like this book as much as "Unlikely pilgrimage" but it was readable. Something about Ms. Joyce's style makes me want to put the book down half-way through and then she hooks me again. ( )

This is one where the audio possibly was detrimental to the enjoyment of the story. The man reading it had such a rough gravelly voice that it became a distraction -- esp. when he was doing women's parts. Frank, the music shop owner has a gift for finding the right song for the right person. He is devoted to vinyl even though the meat of the story takes place in the 1980s and 1990s. He had an unconventional upbringing by his single mother, Peg, who will only allow him to call her that. She schools him in music -- by listening to records - she shares the backstory about the composers, points out the detail in the movements, the actual sound of them and how they move people. Frank finds both his calling and his stumbling block after Peg dies in an accident. His shop on Unity St. in the changing east end (?) of London is a gathering place for the other misfit shop owners struggling to stay afloat as the area gentrifies and goes to the mall model. Kit is his clumsy shop boy who provides comic relief, but also creates much of the action with his ineptitude. Fr. Antony is a former priest who owns a religious goods store, and Maude is the gruff, "mohican" sporting tattoo artist in striped tights and tutus like "an angry bumble bee" Frank's shop sells only vinyl, which is becoming problematic for its survival, but for Frank, "music is like a garden" and placement of one thing next to another matters. He has some beautiful listening booths and really tailor-makes his sales for his customers and their emotional needs. He can almost hear what they need. One day, a woman faints outside his shop and they all rush out to her rescue. She is wearing a pea green coat and her eyes are wide and "black as vinyl" and Frank is instantly smitten. At this point the story becomes a rom com. The biggest attractor is that he cannot "hear" the music she needs. He hears nothing. She disappears, but returns unexpectedly another time to thank Frank for his help. Her learns her name, Ilse Brauchmann, but also that she has a fiance and he talks himself out of caring. She disappears long enough to make him miss her then returns to ask him for music listening lessons. She is also super-handy at fixing all the things Kit breaks. They meet weekly and it's a series of painful starts and stops as they each try to suppress their feelings for each other. Even the waitress who becomes an important character can see it. This part got frustrating fro me. Frank is trying to overcome Peg's teachings about love - not letting yourself get hurt, so he keeps Ilse out. She meanwhile has a secret she needs to share. Enough already. Then the book takes a really dark turn and a happy ending looks impossible. 20 years (!) go by during which Ilse had returned to Germany, Frank loses everything, and Unity Street basically goes under, with no gentrification. What the heck? Finally things turn around in our modern era in part due to Kit, who has become a radio personality,modern technology and a flash mob. Whew. But you didn't have to put me through all of that! Love the discourses and rhapsodies on music. The rest was more endured. ( )
