Publisher's Summary

This is the story of the last acrimonious days of The Beatles, a final chapter reconstructing for the first time the seismic events of 1969, the year that saw the band reach new highs of musical creativity and new lows of internal strife. Two years after Flower Power and the hippie idealism of the Summer of Love, the '60s dream had perished on the vine. By 1969, violence and vindictiveness had replaced The Beatles' own mantra of peace and love. And in the midst of this rancour, however, emerged the disharmony of Let It Be and the ragged genius of Abbey Road, their incredible farewell love letter to the world.

Pity John lost out to Yoko

John almost escaped Yoko's domination by going with a woman to live in California but the possessive Yoko soon realed him back in and that led to irreparable destruction of the Beatles. He lost his personality to her after being such a proudly independent person.

Sudden End

For some reason this book ends suddenly. As if at the end of 1969 that was it, so you don't really get the ending. Had hoped for a little more so I found this disappointing.

Good book

Very detailed , even for someone who knows a fair bit about the Beatles, there’s probably something in here of interest . With working thru lockdown ( and mostly driving ), this book didn’t take long to go thru. Good book and the narrator has done a good job too . Well done Mr McNab

Good book, shame about the reader

A good read and a valuable addition to the huge body of work on the Beatles. Docked one star for the annoying reader and his completely unnecessary, borderline offensive Liverpool accents! The writing stands up by itself, I felt, so I didn't need a thespian declaiming each line.

Great story, ends abruptly

Enjoyed this audiobook, and the narrator does a great job of the various accents and voices. Only four stars because the story ends quite abruptly on New Year's Eve 1969, with all that came afterwards summed up in a hasty epilogue. This is supposed to be about the "last days of the Beatles", and the Beatles didn't officially end until Paul's notorious press release in April 1970, followed by years of legal wrangling. But you won't hear that in this audiobook. Otherwise enjoyable.
