5.0 su 5 stelle Excellent, Thought-Provoking Portrait of The Best Voice in the World 21 giugno 2014
Di Joseph V. Iorillo - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Joel Samberg's "Pockets Full of Good Intentions" is a wonderfully insightful article that is part biography, part psychological profile, part fan appreciation, and it's so well-written, well-observed and thoroughly researched that I kept wishing it were longer. It's an excellent accompaniment to Randy Schmidt's biography of Karen Carpenter, and it's got some intriguing comments from many of the people who knew her and worked with her.

I hope Samberg uses this as the basis for a longer examination of Karen and her talent. I think it's high time she got the critical respect and attention she deserved. It's unfortunate that most people only think of the anorexia when they think of her, and the tragedy of her death seems to obscure what people should remember about her - that voice (which many people refer to as the Voice, respectfully capitalized), which defies description. Ghostly, moving, innocent, seductive, girlish, pure, world-weary, melancholy, motherly, warm, chilling - her voice was all of these things, often in the span of one or two notes. Samberg quotes a noted music historian as describing her voice as "otherworldly." I don't think that's just hyperbole - listening to her, you truly feel as if you're in the presence of something very special, something that's almost sacred.

I loved the carpenters .Karen's voice remlnds me a little like eve Cassidy. Mesmerizing voices from two women lost two soon. I must be honest tho. That I felt that Richard was a large part of her insecurities, to controlling . He had to see her declining or was the mother the really the root of loneliness. I have 5 of there albums if not more and I played them while reading this book. Her voice will always live on.

As a long time Carpenters fan I enjoyed Joel Samberg's "Pockets Full of Good Intentions". With many observations of Karen Carpenter and Richard Carpenter, and quotes from Randy Schmidt's "Little Girl Blue", I couldn't stop reading. Unfortunately, like all stories on Karen Carpenter, we are left wanting more and a happy ending, that we never will get. Great Job Joel Samberg! The Karen Carpenter Legacy goes on!

Really loved this book and it even contained new information for me! (Thought I'd read and heard it all.)
Beautifully written and I enjoyed Joel's story as well. Wonderful book for anyone who loved Karen and her voice, was touched by the Carpenters' music, or remembers the 70's fondly.

Joel writes about Karen Carpenter with his life long passion and personal love for her music! His knowledge of
her climb to stardom and early tragic ending is obvious in Pockets Full of Good Intentions. This is a must read
piece on the Carpenter Legacy.

Great job Joel!
