    Story

    In the 1980s, Elton John saw friend after friend, loved one after loved one, perish needlessly from AIDS. In the midst of the plague, he befriended Ryan White, a young Indiana boy ostracized by his town and his school because of the HIV infection he had contracted from a blood transfusion. Ryan's inspiring life and devastating death led Elton to two realizations: His own life was a mess. And he had to do something to help stop the AIDS crisis. Since then, Elton has dedicated himself to overcoming the plague.

    jeff says: "Inspiring book"
    "Too much repetition, not enough about his feelings"

    Story
    Would you try another book from Elton John and/or Elton John?

    Yes, but would want to sample it first.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Would have included more about the lives of the friends afflicted by AIDS and more about what John was feeling during his own trials.


    What about Elton John’s performance did you like?

    He was good and serious.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably not.
