5.0 out of 5 stars I, Me, George, 4 Jun 2011
This review is from: I, Me, Mine (Paperback)
If you are a Beatle fan, and your favourite Beatle is George, (like me!) then you're going to love this book! If you're not quite so much a Beatle-maniac then you might find it a little without direction. What this book does do, is give you an insight in to George's thoughts and what his experiences were like - but only George could write an autobiography that doesn't give all that much away! This book was written in the Seventies following the break up of the Beatles. Feelings were still hurt and legal battles were still on-going, and this is reflected in George's book. I believe John Lennon was upset about 'I, Me, Mine' as the whole thing only mentions John about twice, and indeed that Beatles only a handful of times.

The first half of the book is narrative biography - but it is a little on the short side (only around 75 pages I think) and doesn't have a lot of the sort of information and stories you might expect. The second half of the book (and this is why I have to give it 5 stars) is all of George's songs, lyrics and explanations as to what they were about or inspired by - and that is really George's story.

I'm not sure why George would choose to write a biography at the time he did. I wish he could have done an updated version before he died. That would have been fascinating reading!

If you're looking for a book about The Beatles or about Beatle George, this isn't it, but if you're looking for a book about George Harrison the man, then as the title suggests, you've found it.
