I was (and still am) a big fan of The Beatles. As a child, George was my "fav Beatle" (we all had one of those!!!) so I was eager to read this bio about his first wife, Pattie Boyd. It was unfortunately a big disappointment. I gave up about half-way through.
A lot of rambling on and on...about how the author was disappointed by George, again and again. A rather whiny tone throughout that got boring fast and in a big way. Quite a yawner IMO.
I guess if you are interested in reading about taking drugs like heroin and cocaine to combat loneliness and just plain boredom, while living the kind of "jet set" lifestyle that so many people actually dream of, this might appeal. Not for me though. I'll stay with my memories of The Beatles as they are, a group of lads from Liverpool that made it big and changed the world with their music. Good memories those still are, even though they may have been idealistic and not the full story, still better than this meandering story that fell well short of my expectations.
