#11 Shortcomings

As said before, Steven Tyler's style of writing in this book consisted of constant subject changing and getting off track with his thoughts. He claims to get lost in his own mind, and it definitely shows when reading his novel. At points, it took a little more paying attention than usual. Not that his side thoughts were bad... just difficult to keep up with. Steven would begin telling of an experience of his, remind himself of something else, and come back to talking about the previous experience. Perhaps expectations of him being an author were too high, conisdering he writes songs for a living. The book would have been a lot thinner if he had stayed more on track with his story. Although, maybe a lot of his sensitive side would not have shown if he had stayed more on track. the opposite. Then again, maybe too much of it would have shown.
