This book was a dissapointment for me, it is as thorough a book on Factory as you will find but left me somewhat critical of Mick Middles more than anything. His style of writing agitated me no end with useless romantic imagery, repetition and rhetoric: Middles wants you to know all about how close he was to New Order, Wilson et al, I don't. A facsinating read, I just felt it could have been a hundred pages shorter and just as informative. let's hope he revises it soon.

Call him a genius call him an evil genius whatever your view of Tony Wilson Genius should figure. This book with its recently added Tony friendly subtitle is an obvious cash in to the highly anticipated 24 hour party people movie but it guides you through the birth of Joy Division the untimely death of Ian Curtis and the majesty of new order. The text is a little out of date, a few pages of whats happened since the book first surfaced would be nice (at the very least the fact that New Order manager Rob Gretton is sadly no longer with us) but its a book that will fill in a few gaps for the fan and de-film-ise the shortcuts taken to bring 24 hour party people to the screens.
