“A must read for music fans, true crime aficionados, or anyone looking for a deep, insightful dive into a dark chapter of American history.”
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
Just finished The Last Days of John Lennon by James Patterson, the Audiobook version.
While the title of the book says The Last Day’s, most of the book is a history of the Beatles and the life of John Lennon, interspersed with Mark Chapman, his life and the few days he spent in New York, waiting for the opportunity to kill John Lennon.
To any real Beatles fan there is little to learn here, but of your not all that familiar with their story you will get an easy short version of it, with enough info to satisfy the casual fan.
This was actually my first audiobook and while my mind didn’t wander while listening like I thought it would, I found parts of the audio at first funny, then outright annoying and that was the attempt by the narrators to try and mimic every voice that spoke in the story. Some like Paul and Ringo were decent, but John’s could be really annoying and Yoko was absolutely terrible
I’m not a fan of the author and his writing style didn’t exactly knock me out. If you are going to read this book, I would avoid the audio version
