Illiterate, dull and ultimately disappointing,
This review is from: Bernard Sumner: Confusion - Joy Division, Electronic and New Order Verus the World: Confusion - Joy Division, Electronic and New Order Versus the World (Paperback)
First things first, did anyone proof read this book? Barely a page goes by without a grammatical howler; it's hard to respect a published work that confuses 'your' and 'you're'.
The enlightening sections of the book are the first couple of chapters, learning about Bernard's early life and his family but most of the subsequent anecdotes are well known to most followers of his bands. There are very few insights from the key players, relying on outsiders' often conflicting accounts.
Bernard's interjections are insightful and generally amusing but large sections go by without comment; perhaps he was bored reading it.
