I purchased this book as some of my students wanted to learn Adele's music - however it is better suited to grade 4+. The arrangements of pieces that were originally accompanied by the piano are a pleasure to play - in particular Turning Tables and Someone Like You. The piano arrangements of pieces that were originally accompanied by the guitar on the album do not work so well. However if you can play both the piano and the guitar, and like Adele's music, then this is the book for you!

The book contains all the tracks from the album except for the bonus track "I found a boy".

The music itself is excellent and true to the original. However the book itself......why don't publishers provide a spiral binding so that the people who play the music can easily turn the page without having to stop constantly to crease the book so that it stays open on the relevant page. This is a MAJOR detraction and a massive pain.

Please Amazon, bring your massive buying power to bear on this topic-I would happily pay a few shillings more for sheet music if this issue could be resolved.

This songbook has accurate sheet music for all the songs on Adele's album '21', arranged for piano with guitar chords and lyrics. Good songs, and the music is written exactly as it sounds on the album.

This was just as expected. All the songs from the album and not too hard to play. Further to other comments - I also think all pvg books should be ring bound to make it easier to turn pages and keep books open!

This is what it says. If you want to play Adele's songs then they're all here. My only whinge is that the pages don't easily stay open - it would be nice if it had been spiral bound.

This book is very satisfying if you have listened to the album and are keen to play the songs complete with all those juicy chords and get to that genuine feel that is often missing in some arrangements. It also has good accurate chords if you are looking to develop your own style of playing these wonderfully written songs using cords as a basis. The songs are kept in the original keys as Adele sings them so if you have been singing along you will not find any disappointments in this book. Should be mentioned that if you are a beginner pianist and are wanting to read the music as written, this book will be too advanced, however if you can interpret the chords you will be well on your way.

This is a very useful songbook - from a great album. It is well arranged and extremely helpful if you, like me, want to obtain and imitate her distinctive piano lines. Recommended.

I bought this book as a fun book for my daughter to play as she likes Adele. She is working on her grade 8 piano exam and this is only around grade 4 or 5 standard but is a nice diversion from some of her more serious pieces. She was really pleased with it.

These are good arrangements of the songs, and the lyric and melody lines are very accurate. The binding is a little stiff, and so the book tries to close itself, which is a playing inconvenience.

My daughter is normally not to keen on Adele, but she is completely made up with the songs available in this sheet music collection for the piano. Absolutely worth the money, and it is great to see/hear my daughter being constantly at the piano!
