This sorry excuse for an informative bio about the music group, The Cure, contains so many borrowings from other sources that the "author" would have done Cure fans more of a service if she had just listed all of them and been done with it.
Even worse, the book is so full of misinformation, I find it very difficult to believe Greene paid much attention to anything she ever read or saw about The Cure or its mastermind, Robert Smith.
I was hoping for much better, since most of the other published works about The Cure that I have read were at least acceptable. Even the collaboration she undertook with Dave Thompson for "The Cure: A Visual Documentary" was better than Greene's solitary attempt, though it is far from stellar. It seems that it takes the both of them to produce anything even remotely worthwhile. Neither can do it alone; Thompson's "The Making of the Cure's Disintegration" is cute in its false jewel case, but again, a bibliography listing would have sufficed instead of the constant rehash of information any real Cure fan who has the ultimate book "Ten Imaginary Years" already knows.
Ultimately, this book is a must-have ONLY if hearing or seeing the words "The Cure" or "Robert Smith" cause you to whip out your credit card and complete the transaction before your senses kick in.
I, however, have a valid excuse for owning this book... I didn't have a review to base my decision on, but now you do ...so, you don't.
