I really enjoyed this - I live in Gloucestershire so it was easy to fit the story into our locale. But even so it is a good tale.

these are great mags......but be ready to accept ups and downs in story quality. Overall good stuff and if you hit a slow/uninteresting story just move on to the next.

As with all Melvyn Bragg books - it sits in the comfort zone, is an easy read and is satisfying. A good read to have between deeper books.

I bought this to have a look. It's just OK but not really my cup of tea. I won't be buying another - sorry!

This review is from: The Fox in the Attic (Paperback)
This is a most curious book but one that is totally fascinating and is educative. The only snag is that one or two items are left unfinished and lead you to ask - whatever happened there?

Once Upon a Time: The Lives of Bob Dylan
Once Upon a Time: The Lives of Bob Dylan
Price: £3.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Verbose but nevertheless full of "Factoids", 29 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really enjoyed this book although it is definitely for those who are into minutiae! It is also "poetically" verbose so if you are just after facts then this is not for you. It moves along quite slowly yet doesn't become boring. There are a lot of background filling details which although interesting in themselves do make the book much longer than it could otherwise have been. I think this is definitely for the "Bobcats" and not for the general reader...... Me? I'm a Bobcat. He made my youth in the 1960s so enjoyable: and "No"...I was not one of those who disliked "Electric Bob". As a Brit I loved everything that Bob did in the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and so on.
