Excellent insight in to the real Michael Jackson
I am a huge MJ fan. When I first started to listen to this audio book I almost switched it off, the author stated that he was out to get MJ and prove either way if the allegations about him were true. The audio book was well read and the reader portrayed each character mimicking their voices which gave a real sense of drama. It turned out to be a real insight about the allegations that have been made against MJ. Some were shocking and made me cringe, however when the facts were stated it was evident that all of the allegations were false. The people who made the claims were only after Michael's money. It also explained that MJ didn't do himself any favours by continuing to sleep with young boys although in a strange way he thought of it as normal. The book ends when MJ dies in 2009, broken, with the unwillingness to live, insecure. Tragic. A wonderful read for any MJ fan, and a real tribute to the king of pop!
Good book shame about the voices
The guy who narrates this audio book is so annoying!! When he is talking as if a 3rd person he try's to put on a different voice but everyone he puts on a voice for sounds like Michael Jackson! This is good when he is saying things that Michael says but he does the same voice for everyone it's weird. That said the book is a good listen.
