Review by: RAVENSWOOD PUBLISHING on July 18, 2011 :
"THE HISTORY OF ROCK -N- ROLL IN 99 TWEETS" BY ANDY SZPUK

There are a few words I can use to describe this short story. Fun, cute, silly, and adorable. Andy Szpuk tells the story of a man and his ups and downs with rock -n- roll by way of song excerpts. You can't help but find yourself thrown back in time to your own "Glory Days" while reading it, as you find yourself remembering the songs and singing along.

A definite must-read short story.

Review by: Gayle Beveridge on June 12, 2011 :
Andy Szpuk has joined the growing Twitter Fiction movement to produce this very clever story in which each paragraph of 140 characters or less (the limit for a tweet) features the title or words from a rock and roll song.

We follow Harry through a life of misdirected love and business failures and successes, all the while recognising tags to songs we've sung for generations.

A very affordable piece of entertainment. Well done Mr. Szpuk.
