Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a neat little book that lays out the story of The Beatles. It begins with the birth of each band member, the era, the formation of the band, all the ups and downs, the dissolution of the band, and finally, what the remaining members are doing. The time span is 1940 to 2009. This book floats somewhere between 3 and 4 "stars", depending on how much you know about the band and the individual members. This gets 4 "stars" for Herve Bourhis' graphic artwork-the story itself Beatles fans will already know.

In 156 pages (not counting the pages not related to the story), Herve Bourhis has put together an accurate, interesting, and informative story of The Beatles. His artwork is what makes this book interesting-his drawings give the story a real depth, even if you know the entire story of the band. While reading the text that runs through the story, Bourhis' drawings give a slightly different, more alive viewpoint about the band and the four people in it.

Bourhis is a fan of The Beatles-as he says-"I always return to them when I don't know what else to listen to." Perhaps that sounds like a sideways compliment, but at least you have some idea where he stands regarding the group. And at least you know he isn't another fawning fan who only sees what he wants to see. And that brings us back to the book. It's the story told straightforwardly, which is what it should be. But his artwork keeps us from taking everything too seriously.

By now, most everybody knows The Beatles' story-both collectively and each individual member. Fans of graphic books/biographies/Beatles collectors will probably want to take a look at this. Is it a necessary addition to your Beatles library? That depends-if you're a deep fan/collector-then yes.
