Mick Jagger - the "deep field" style of writing really brings the personality justice.
Yes. But this title is too long for that, of course.
Reading the dreadful negative reviews adjoining this audiobook, I can only wonder if the readers in question were listening to the same book that I have been hearing this week. The perception that this is a poor offering is entirely erroneous in my view. Just wrong! My take is quite different. The writing alone is simply incredible- witty, highly informative, and brimming with original and inventive use of the English language. The reader / performer of the audiobook itself takes the wit of the text to a higher level still: in all it is a fabulous reading, rich with obvious love of language, and wickedly, often uproariously funny. I find myself laughing out loud several times during each hour of listening. The story is utterly compelling, with a scope of personalities and events that reach far beyond the details of Mr. Jagger's own journey. You'll get a wide lens view of cultural life in England. The book is every bit as good as Keith Richards' autobiography ("Life") audiobook. I am going to turn to Pete Townshend's new autobiography after I finish "Mick Jagger"- but the Jagger opus is going to be one hard act to follow. I haven't had this much fun with an audiobook in a long time, maybe never. Both the writing and the vocal delivery- absolutely masterful. Engage!
