5.0 out of 5 stars Truth is better than fiction., 26 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pacey and engaging. I was recommended by a friend who said it was as good as any fiction ever written; the fact it is true makes it even better. It is not a genre I usually chase but the world that you get propelled into makes the book un-put-downable. Even with no prior knowledge the terrms and acronyms are easy to follow. Hugely enjoyable armchair reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing insight to a true great. Brilliant!, 27 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
They say that you should never meet your heroes. It would be impossible to read this book and not feel that you have, for a short time been given an insight into a true R&B legend. It is magnificently reserched and beautifully put together. Using strands from anyone who was close to him, family and bandmates, the book provides a ringside seat for the action. Zoe Howe has caught the magic in the bottle. The references are thick and fast and to be given insights into how the music evolved and with whom could not have been written better. Lee Brilleaux - the ONLY book you will ever need.

5.0 out of 5 stars I felt that given the great reviews it has enjoyed it was worth a punt, 27 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I picked this read after seeing a quote from the book on twitter. From there I had a look at the reviews on Amazon and although not my usual genre, I felt that given the great reviews it has enjoyed it was worth a punt. Delighted I did. It is a wonderfully written book by quite possibly the pre-eminent researcher of the subject of the life of Savile.
The flow of the book helps immensely. Covering all of the strands, but not in strict chronological order is a masterstroke. It is not gratuitous, neither is it sensational; it describes Savile’s whole life and exploits leaving no stone unturned. A brilliant read about an awful subject. Like another reviewer I consumed it in two sittings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyed this one!, 4 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'll not bother to add anything to the synopsis in this review; you can read it at the top and it is bang-on. - I must admit I bought it after reading the reviews on here and was delighted I did buy the book. It is wonderfully written and way up there with his best stuff. It gathers pace really quick and the characters do come alive from the page.
