The Intern

When Jay Merchant lands an internship for the best job in music television he is given a backstage pass to the biggest gig of. Jay has landed an internship at Total BEATS and gets to live and breathe music all day long Although he s thrown in at the deep end and basically starts off not having a clue what he s doing he eventually finds his feet and is soon immersed in his new job to the exclusion of all else including his long suffering girlfriend Sophia and his mother He loves music and has the opportunity to turn his passion into a paying occupation but finds that his dream job may not be such a dream after all The Intern is Dillon Khan s first novel and offers a behind the scenes insight into the world of music Khan himself worked at MTV for eight years so knows all the ins and outs of the industry and provides a realistic and honest portrayal of the highs and lows of working in such an environment Jay faces long hours little praise for his work and is surrounded by people who always put themselves first On the plus side he gets to meet musicians who he admires is showered with freebies and never knows uite what he s going to be doing from one day to the next Although he s living his passion I like the way there s always a fine line drawn between enjoying his job and hating itI think Jay came across as very reminiscent of many young adults who leave university after finishing their degree and then either don t have a clue what they want to do or have the relevant ualifications but are unable to get a job in their chosen field Although I found Jay s struggle to make a mark for himself in the music world interesting I didn t one hundred percent connect with him as a character Admittedly he had grown on me by the end of the book and I m glad his story ended on a high note but I have to say that he wasn t always that likable and I didn t like the way he sometimes treated the other people in his life I also found some of the parts in the narrative where he has repeated imaginary conversations in his head with music stars such as Eminem Whitney Houston and Dido amusing but a bit distracting at times Set in the year 2000 my favourite thing about this book was reminiscing over some of the music that was around at the time Like Jay I can remember taping songs off the radio onto cassette tapes so that I could listen to that week s big hits over and over again It s hard to believe now in such a digital age but back then that was the best way even though it may have been illegal to get your hands on all the current songs The Intern is an enjoyable and fascinating account of what it s actually like to work in the industry Music lovers in particular will find this an interesting read However although I found it a refreshing change of pace from a lot of the paranormal books which are on the shelves at the moment I just found that all important spark with the main character missing and I do so like a character who I can really root for This was still an accomplished and impressive debut which I think will appeal especially to the older teen audience The Black

    Read a MTVmusic scene I Want My MTV Craig Adams book a couple years back so mostly all I can say is accurate From what I know anyway The crazy fun glitz and parties but also the hard work involved Love the idea of an 'empathetic workplace' where everybody works hard and parties hard together Sure it means you have no other real life relationships but when you're 'passionate' I guess you really throw in all you've got like Jay or do you no
