This did provide some interesting insight into John Lennon's character, but it also did shine a strong light upon Cynthia's weaknesses. She was, as it turns out, a very, very weak-willed woman paired with a very intelligent, but lazy, man. He treated her badly, and she let him, and their situation began, of course, under odd circumstances.
Don't get me wrong, it is an interesting book with some wonderful insights.
However, it certainly didn't cause me to adore John, and at the same time it did not cause me to sympathise with Cynthia. They each had lives that went (opinion-inserted-here) sordid ways. I wouldn't seek either of them out as a friend. John had some brilliance, no doubt, but he also had a heinous side. I'd want no part of that, and neither (as it turned out) did Cyn.
A very interesting read! But I don't think it will cause you to grow more fond of either of them.
This was very entertaining, I only wonder what photos I missed from the printed book. I must give credit to Shatner, he included at the end what the cast disliked about him personally, which is not a small part of the story, and that was essential, I think.
A very entertaining read. Some bad language - be warned.
