Cynthia Lennon's soft and pleasing tones deliver a sensitive and heartfelt audiobook crackling with openness and revelation. Listeners get the inside track on John Lennon, from high school to the breakup of the Beatles, with some startling insights on his family life and influences. Lennon's sweet and understated delivery reveals the psychological price of sudden fame and fortune, and the betrayals that so often accompany it. Only the most hardened heart will not sympathize with the plight of the first wife of an icon as she portrays her abandonment, betrayal, and final reconciliation with the man she acknowledges as a troubled genius.
