Product Description

Review

Praise for "Untouchable" Sullivan reveals a man who was not the pedophilic, transgendered, transracial freak the media thought he was, but a highly intelligent and sensitive perfectionist, more self-awareand ashamedof his surgically altered looks than the public ever knew. . . . Sullivan s sensitive portrait of [Jackson] is a good start toward explaining and rehabilitating a lonely genius who was poorly understood in his lifetime. "Kirkus Reviews " Praise for Randall Sullivan Like its title, this book has something miraculous in it. Imagine, if you can, a book . . . that will interest, and satisfy, both the pious and skeptical. That book is this one. Mr. Sullivan's cast of unlikely characters recalls the inhabitants of other mountains, Thomas Mann's "Magic Mountain" or Thomas Merton's "The Seven Storey Mountain." "The Washington Times" on "The Miracle Detective" An intrepid Portland journalist crafts a fascinating exploration of how the Catholic Church investigates purported sightings of the Virgin Mary; a globe-trotting, first-person spiritual odyssey that took him to northeastern Oregon, Arizona, Bosnia, the Vatican and beyond. "Seattle Post-Intelligencer" on "The Miracle Detective " [An] engrossing, damning tale of widespread unchecked corruption in one of the nation s largest police departments, one that deserves attention. . . . Exhaustively researched, the book methodically weaves a disturbing story of corruption, intimidation, and murder. "Boston Globe" on "LAbyrinth"" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This is a huge book and looking like a deep study of Michael Jacksons life and the people around him.I have only just got to the start of first chapter and I am already suprised at the writers revalations on certain things,showing the pressure Michael was under,the writer seems respectful of Michael jackson so it should be truthful and sincere,but be warned there is a lot of reading but it seems like a book worth reading.Wow did I say deep study!,this book has a reference and chapter notes that are a novel in their own right,amazing detail especially covering 2005 to 2009 period the deals ,people,lifestyle,travels ,this book is written as if the writer was actually right there,going into great detail into the confusion surrounding the build up to the This is it o2 concerts,with Michael somehow being managed by three different managers!.Then the refrence notes goes into great detail to list his sources,you will feel like you know the people who were around Micheal after reading this amazing book.
Update this to five stars this book feels like watching a movie exciting stuff.

This is an extraordinary book that gives a balanced, in-depth and extremely harrowing account of the last years of Michael Jackson's life and the aftermath of his death. It is a troubling insight into a world of backstabbing advisers, attorneys and family members, with Michael constantly on the move, living like a hunted animal. No-one has more successfully documented the toxic atmosphere that surrounded Jackson, mainly created by the opposing factions all pulling him in different directions, greedy for money or reflected glory. On the rare occasions that someone good and honest appears on the scene they are soon swept away by those with less than honourable intentions. I found much of the book upsetting, especially the description of his death and the days leading up to it. There are lighter moments though; particularly touching are the descriptions of Michael's life with his children during his time spent in Ireland, where he seems to have been actually valued and treated as a human-being by those around him and had a chance to live a relatively 'normal' life.
Sullivan is not trashing Jackson's reputation, he is sympathetic to him and states that he believes in his innocence. I don't believe anyone would think any less of MJ after reading this, far from it - he climbed even higher in my estimation.
That said, there are inaccuracies which are inexcusable, e.g. claiming Michael wore a prosthetic nose (a look at the autopsy report shows this is not the case), and Gordon Brown being described as the 'prime minister of the Liberal party'. Also, his conclusion that Michael remained a virgin his entire life will anger some fans.

What is with all the nasty reviews of this book? It is an extremely sympathetic look at the unique life that Michsel led and draws the inevitable conclusion that his unusual upbringing made Michael what he was. Not a paedophile, not a nutter, not a predator of young boys, it shows instead someone who remained kind, extremely loving and was, of course, gifted beyond belief -even after all the dreadful things that befell him.

What it does not do is show the other Jacksons in a good light at all, anyone who harbours a rose tinted view of the family would definitely not like this book. I have always believed his father and siblings used Michael as a cash cow and hounded him with demands which he was not capable of refusing. Katherine does not come out of this book looking too good either, well after all she was complicit in the ruining of his childhood, but perhaps she did not see it that way.However we have all seen documentary proof that she liked the money.

The bad reviews are stating that it is all tabloid trash - that is just not true, he has named the papers who printed the most ridiculous rumours and there is an extensive bibliography and chapter notes stating all his sources. If you do not want to believe what certain sources have said that is up to you, the reader. Randall Sullivan has painstakingly researched this book and has put forward what he believes to be the nearest to the truth.

Some reviewers have stated that it is badly written - rubbish. Sullivan is a journalist of many years standing and has previously been nominated for a Pulitzer prize. Just because you do not like what someone is writing does not make it bad writing.

Don't listen to the bad reviews on here...bit over the top aren't they??? You Betcha!!! This work deserves a hearing...It's a fair one...and unless it shines a light on MJ showing 100% perfection...then the thought police are down on you like ants!!! To quote..."Cyberspace is home to a bewildering number of vigilante groups policing all sorts of perceived thought crimes. Among them is a bunch of enthusiastic Michael Jackson fans, who patrol the internet in search of words that sully the perfection of their idol's posthumous reputation". Need I say more???
