2.0 out of 5 stars Bit of a con, 5 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Don't mind a twist at the end, but I think this overstepped the mark. Felt a bit cheated by the whole thing.

Not sure this would have been as big a deal if she hadn't had been unmasked as the author in the first book.

Very good in parts, but repetitive in others. Not sure that I liked him by the end or knew him any better.

Well written in his usual style, but takes a long time to say not a lot. I was expecting more.

5.0 out of 5 stars best Beatle biography yet, 12 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Without doubt the best Beatle biography yet. A historian like level of research and a raft of qualifications and new pieces of information

4.0 out of 5 stars a decent read, 12 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
More of a book to dip in to now and again rather than read all the way through. A decent read with some intelligent observations.

4.0 out of 5 stars Warm and funny, 29 May 2013
Is he really as naive as he makes out? I'm not sure that it matters, an enjoyable read. Some real laugh out loud moments.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not great!, 29 May 2013
Lots of old people talking about how great their era was and how smart they were compared to others! Lacks any warmth or humour.

2.0 out of 5 stars A list rather than a book!, 29 May 2013
A triumph of research over writing talent. He knows his stuff, but he writes with little skill o imagination. Only worth getting if you ever need to check what TSC were doing on the 4th December 1987.
