For Third Day guitarist Mark Lee, the road to success was not without missteps and surprises along the way. Hurt Road is the story of a young man who found in music a refuge from the uncertainties of life. Who set out to discover a better way to live than constantly struggling to make sure life turned out the way he planned. Who stopped substituting what’s next for what’s now. And who learned that though all the miles between birth and death come sweet mercies – and music for the journey.
I am not a huge fan of autobiographies so it was quite difficult for me to pick up this book and read it. I usually find this type of book to be long and drawn out, boring and very hard to read.
But, because I am a huge Third Day fan I decided to give Hurt Road, by Mark Lee a try. And I’m glad I did.
Mark has such a gentle, soft, easy to read style of writing that reading his story was enjoyable and interesting. He has had a life of ups and downs, like many of us, and he has gained wisdom and insight through his experiences.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys autobiographies, but especially to music lovers, as much of it is geared towards musicians.
