In essence ok
on 16 March 2014
Grew up in the area around the time of the fabs so found some of the details annoyingly inaccurate - names, place names.
The feel of the back does capture the atmosphere of the times very well and the description of the characters of the fabs fits with my recollections. I notice some of the errors appear in other books about the Beatles so wonder if it's just copied research without verification and also what else I've missed.
Nevertheless a good read for those interested in Liverpool at the time and especially a true account of the formation of the band.
