Like a Rolling Stone: Bob Dylan at the Crossroads - Greil Marcus Making up for what it lacks in clear narrative with an unabashed fanboy mentality, Like a Rolling Stone... is one of those books that you can pick up and put down at will. None of the segments are very long, and there's no overwhelming need to keep reading. It's light and spends a lot of time rambling and flailing with Dylan adoration, but there are some gems among the essays. Though the ability to put it down and walk away probably leads to a large portion of the readership never returning, this is not a book that should be read in one go. It'll make you nauseous with repetition otherwise.
