Not So Common People by T. Gamache

Do you know someone obsessed with music and it’s in all aspects of their life.  They can’t wait to get back to it when life takes them away from it – that is Nathan, the main character in this book.  At first, Nathan appears as a man-child.  But as the story develops, his family and friends are introduced I realized there is more going on than what appears on the surface.

Take an average Joe, or in this case, a common Nathan from an average ordinary family.  However are anyone’s families and friends ordinary or common?  This story does a good job of bringing the reader along to discover just how extraordinary common can be. How simple aspects of one’s life can be so much more.  Why things are not always as they appear. And there are times when everything is just crummy.

I would have liked more development on the supporting characters, but then again maybe since the story is Nathan’s that all you need.
