This is the first biography that I have read in full. I have tried other biographies of people I am interested in but just not finished them.
I think the reason is because Freddie was so fascinating. I wasn't interested in Queen growing up but now I am. The book has lots about where Freddie was born and went to school. There were lots of quotes from him and other people. I did enjoy the book.
I got sad the author described his illness and how he died. It feels like it was only yesterday I can't believe it was 25 years ago!!! Freddie has always been my favourite musician and always will be. I would recommend this book.

Often very factual, the author did not get much from those she interviewed. Felt a bit like a tabloid read much of the time, that lacked depth. Some parts were interesting like what his ex Barbara said but left me wanting to know much more. I read his ex,s jims book and I felt this was much better even though I think he was trying to just prove to the world how much Freddy loved him

Didn't finish it. Bored. Too much stuff about celebrity status and not enough about early life and where he came from - unless I gave up before I got to the good bit!

The book was very good insight to this remarkable man. It gave warts and all to his life and super talents.
His voice was epic his life was an emotional mess.
His betrayal by some of his friends was cruel.
A very remarkable showman.

I quite enjoyed it once I got past the first couple of chapters. Once it began with Freddie's life in Zanzibar, it started getting more interesting.

I've loved Freddie since I saw him live and have many books on him and Queen but this book has given me a far greater insight into his life than any other I have read. I would recommend it to any fan of Freddie Mercury

One of the best biographies I have read. Well written, well researched, fantastically written! I cannot recommend this enough for Queen fans and folk who have an interest in the genre!
