4.0 out of 5 stars Beatles solo, yes I liked it!
Other reviewers say the books are insubstantial, that they have little text, but they miss the point. It is an illustrated chronicle, it's in the title. There are some fantastic pictures of the four in their various solo pursuits. An example is Ringo starr with two pages of his work with his friend Marc Bolan another favourite of mine. Each book has a wealth of pictures...

2.0 out of 5 stars A Triumph Of Style Over Substance
There is no question that this set of 4 books, presented in a slipcase, is beautifully designed. However, anyone looking for a detailed history of the solo careers of John, Paul, George and Ringo will be disappointed.

Each book is just under 100 pages, so there is little room for detail. Some of the pictures are interesting but many have been seen before...

This review is from: Beatles Solo: The Illustrated Chronicles of John, Paul, George, and Ringo after the Beatles (Hardcover)
There is no question that this set of 4 books, presented in a slipcase, is beautifully designed. However, anyone looking for a detailed history of the solo careers of John, Paul, George and Ringo will be disappointed.

Each book is just under 100 pages, so there is little room for detail. Some of the pictures are interesting but many have been seen before. Ultimately, the set looks very attractive and impressive, but the books will probably stay on your shelf gathering dust after you have thumbed through them once or twice. A real missed opportunity to delve in depth into The Beatles solo careers.

1.0 out of 5 stars beautifull pack with nothing inside, 18 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beatles Solo: The Illustrated Chronicles of John, Paul, George, and Ringo after the Beatles (Hardcover)
I was waiting a very good book about solo beatles career, is not the case, you got only a hard book with a few pages of information that all we know and some colour photos, nothing rare, avoid this.

Each book has a wealth of pictures which are interesting, not for a read through but as a visual record it is an excellent collection, and at a fiver a hard back book on amazon what's to lose, give it a try.

5.0 out of 5 stars beatles solo: together!, 17 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beatles Solo: The Illustrated Chronicles of John, Paul, George, and Ringo after the Beatles (Hardcover)
A lovely presentation with slip case, excellent artwork and design. As with all 'beatle' books, contains odd 'snippets' and pics not seen before. All this for less than £20! Excellent!

4.0 out of 5 stars Slightly dissapoining, 2 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beatles Solo: The Illustrated Chronicles of John, Paul, George, and Ringo after the Beatles (Hardcover)
If you're a Beatle fan you be dissapointed. There isnt an iota of new info that I wouldn't know from other sources. But looks good on the shelf, all four books are hard-covered, put together in a harcover box hence its a few kilos more on my bookshelf. Plus all the photos are razor sharp, layout is nice, font is a reader-friendly. Well ... its not so bad overall. Minus one star for heaviness.

I quite enjoyed this! Yes, the text is insubstantial and pretty slight, but it's fun and a very pleasant package.
