Beautiful book, inspiring story,
This review is from: The Fifth Beatle: The Brian Epstein Story (Hardcover)
Whether you come to this book as a Beatles fan, an enthusiast of graphic novels, or simply by accident, I can highly recommend The Fifth Beatle.
Brian Epstein's story is one that deserves telling, and author Vivek J Tiwary has clearly done more than just his homework into the facts. With the creative team's fusion of clever and witty story-telling and beautiful and haunting artwork, this visually stunning book is invested with energy and passion. Brian's instrumental role in the Beatles' journey to fame and fortune is undoubtedly interesting, but it is the way this book effortlessly conveys key characters and moments of musical history simultaneously with Brian's personal drive and struggles that is this book's great achievement. It tells a tragic yet inspiring story of vision, determination, loyalty and love in a highly original, emotionally charged and captivating way.
I look forward to re-reading and re-reading so as to enjoy the details of each scene, and eagerly await the rumoured film version. A high quality beautiful book.
