Like millions of others, I'm a huge Beatles fan. So they weren't always the greatest of role models; even so, this book is provides a thorough history of the Fab Four and their march through culture and history.
Take with a boulder of salt.
i listened to this book and loved it - sometimes listening to books is lame if the reader is lame, but i highly, highly recommend this audiobook for your next long car ride.
Just as I was beginning to find the protagonist tolerable, the story wrapped itself up in a very open ending. I think the conflict the character was illustrating was very relevant for the historical period the story is exploring, however, it was humoring a viewpoint that is extremely difficult for a modern reader to sympathize with. I felt the author could have potentially bridged the reader's sympathies with the protagonist's with a lighter, more charitable hand. But the illustration she created of a way of life and time in history was thorough, lively, and adequately researched. Had I grown to like Matilda earlier in the text, I may have even enjoyed the invitation to create my own ending that the author extended. As it was I just felt slightly put out, but my emotional attachments aside, it was an engaging read.
