John Lennon was a true artist and and his murder was a heartbreaking chapter in music history. I have read multiple books about Lennon and the Beatles so I was coming to this book not with the expectation of new revelations, but with hope that it would be an interesting, thoughtful perspective to his story. I found this book to be so simplistically written and actually pretty dull. It just regurgitates Lennon's story in a pseudo-fictional style to create a crime story related to the murder. Mark David Chapman isn't deserving of the in-depth narration he gets in this book. The actual events of Lennon's last days and his murder are well documented already. I recommend that readers look at other biographies (and film documentaries) of Lennon in order to get the thoughtful perspective on his life that he deserves.
