Interesting book but irritating listen
The main narrator makes this book an interesting listen but it's let down by the other voices who imitate members of the band and also people who had been interviewed by the author.
The imitated American accents are an insult to the ear and sound like chalk on a blackboard.
Also, the author has tried to cleverly shoehorn in Queen song titles into sentences but it is also an irritant
On the whole , it's full of interesting trivia but you're better off reading the book rather than listening to it.

Not enough about Freddie
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I would if the person was more interested in the music and groups of the time.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
Freddie's childhood was the most interesting.
I got bored with the details of all the music and other bands.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
I did not like the voices used especially that of "Freddie's mother" she sounded as if she was permanently crying and it was irritating and whiny.
Was Freddie Mercury: The Definitive Biography worth the listening time?
