First, I read the book All You Need Is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka. This was the novel that inspired last summer's Tom Cruise sci-fi action flick "Edge of Tomorrow". I really enjoyed the movie and was please I had seen it previous to reading this book. While the book was enjoyable, I felt some of the concepts were actually fleshed out a bit better on the big screen.
Secondly, I grabbed George Harrison: Behind the Locked Door by Graeme Thomson on a whim at the library last month. I once joked I had four constant friends growing up and they were named John, Paul, George and Ringo. In my teens, I read a lot of Beatle biographies plus the big ones about John and Paul. Ringo was Ringo and I never bothered to learn much about him beyond the highlights. There was, however, a dearth of information on George.
This book does a wonderful job of uncovering who George really was. There is lots of first hand accounts and interviews with those closest to Harrison. It is a fascinating read.
I place this with the best Beatle related books I have read.
The idea is simple: on the last Friday of each month, post about the best book you've finished over the past month while visiting other bloggers doing the same. In this way, we'll all have the opportunity to share our thoughts with other enthusiastic readers. Please join us HERE!
