I really enjoyed learning more about the Beatles, and this is written very well. Two problems, though. One, the narrator's voice is annoying. Two, the book is not really what it seems. After the two very long introductions to further editions, in which you learn that the original only covers the early years and is full of mistakes because of legal issues, it is really disappointing to learn that it hasn't been revised at all! It seems foolish to republish this without improving it.

The Narration was obviously done by a computer.
Edward Lewis may have lended his voice for the computer simulator or Edward Lewis is the name of the computer that rendered this. Either way this narration is unbecoming of Audible .com. So Please Audible .com if there are any more of these so-called read books in your library. Please purge them so I will not accidentally purchase them.

A very thorough and competently written account of the Fab Four, totally spoilt by the appalling choice of narrator. At first, I genuinely thought that the publishers had used some kind of text-to-speech system to create this audiobook, such is the total lack of emotion, expression or human qualities in the narrator's voice.
Make sure you listen to a sample of the book before purchasing. I wish I had!

An intreging and interesting insite in to the beginings, domination and final split of a world legend. Hunter Davies certainly knows and understands the complexities of the characters and the events that forged the Fab Four but unfortunatley, the narator sadley spoils it for me. Obviousley aimed at the American market, Edward Lewis would be perfect for American crime and fiction but regretibly ? not this!
