3.0 out of 5 stars Can't make up my mind, 11 Jun. 2006
This review is from: Freddie Mercury 'An intimate memoir by the man who knew him best' (Paperback)
This was the first book about Freddie (and generally Queen) that I'd read (I have more now haha), and to be honest when I first read it I idolised it. Now, thinking back on it, it's not all that impressive.

Freestone seems to drone on and on about the tours and doesn't really pick up on anything particularly interesting whilst doing so. It's a bit of a case of "They dressed up, they performed, then Freddie and I (best chums that we were) went out clubbing". It just all got a bit repetitive for my liking, and incredibly confusing in others. I ended up finding it very difficult to distinguish between the characters mentioned in the book, and although I did find some parts genuinely interesting; I found Freestone's style incredibly boring. There didn't seem to be much passion in the book. Yes, I did cry upon reading the end because it is a genuine tragedy no matter who has written about it - but generally the book was a disappointment.
