    1. After finishing a work of magic realism that focuses on the return of John Lennon to the world stage (John Lennon and the Mercy Street Cafe) I set my sights and my Kindle to another fictionalized Lennon story, this one quite ambitious in scope. Author Kessler spent more than twenty years researching the life of Lennon - interviewing people once close to the man and the band he help form, visiting landmarks and poring over countless Beatles archives - in order to take on the monumental task of te [...]


    2. This book is a gem in the wide range of John Lennon and Beatles books that litter the world. Written in prose, the author keeps the reader's attention easily, with conversation that is written casually and never seems forced. Each chapter is carefully constructed from multiple interviews, and TONS of research. At each close of a chapter, the author has notes that explain the research for the chapter, including her interviews with various people in John's life. A well-crafted bibliography sits in [...]


    3. I must admit that when I first heard about this series I was skeptical --both regarding the magnitude of the project--nine rather lengthy books projected, and by the idea of novelizing the life of the subject. After having read this book and the next two (which at this writing are the only ones published) I am a convert. Ms. Kessler has done a magnificent job in researching the background of her subject and then in presenting the story of his life. The achievement humanizes John Lennon in a way [...]


    4. A good biography is supposed to make you feel like you knew the subject and went along for the ride of his life. This historical novel really does that--you get right inside Liverpool in the 1950s and 1960s, John Lennon's family background and the beginning of the Fab Four. If only you had brought your guitar that day, maybe YOU could have been a Beatle! Anyway, if you ever felt like you "shoulda been there," when you're done reading you will feel like you "coulda been there." Great bookRead it! [...]


    5. Excellent book. Jude really made me feel like I was there. You do not have to be a John Lennon fan to appreciate her fine craft for writing. I highly recommend it.
