It is a well written book about Freddie and AIDS, but not so much about Freddie and the other members of the band. It is obvious that the authors didn't have too many direct sources to document Freddie's life so they insisted too much on his sex life and even there there wasn't a lot of information because Freddie was a very private person and his best friends protected him. In the end it breaks your heart if you love Freddie and Queen.
Interesting read comparing the rise of HIV along side the career of Freddie Mercury. I have read several books documenting the career of Freddie,but still learned more details I did not know before reading this book.
I've been reading books about queen and Freddie for 20 years. This book was by far the best. It exceeded my expectations! Thorough research was done on multiple subjects (HIV, the stigma associated with homosexuality, the rise of queen, Freddie's lifestyle). An amazing read!
