HASH(0x8d2c30cc) étoiles sur 5 a band-ography for Cure fans 22 septembre 2006
Par Mary A. Groves - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
It's nice to have a Cure biography and there is a heck of a lot of history to go through. In a way it's nice to have the book to make sense of all the different line-ups, who did what when, and how and why everyone came to be in the band.

Also the story in the beginning about Robert's brother taking him to the Isle of Wight festival is priceless. I won't say anymore here so that you'll go get the book!

It probably could be better but there's still enough good info in there for Cure fans that they won't be dissapointed. Another important thing to mention is that he interviewed Lol Tolhurst, and some other former members, so you get more than one perspective on the old days, which is cool.

HASH(0x8d2d3228) étoiles sur 5 Poorly Written 27 juin 2012
Par Rich Latta - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
From a fan's perspective, it's disheartening to read a biography on the Cure with so many mistakes, especially easily correctable ones pertaining to the discography. It doesn't lend a lot of credibility to the rest of the book. A few times the author Jeff Apter starts talking about a subject as if he's already mentioned it and he hasn't. He often launches annoying, unnecessary barbs at Robert Smith as well. Interviews with disgraced former band member Lol Tolhurst were the main source of material for NEVER ENOUGH which should tell you something. The Cure sanctioned book 10 IMAGINARY YEARS is sited repeatedly, so you may as well go straight to that source even though it came out back in 1988 because it's a fun, informative book about the Cure's first years. Robert Smith himself contributed many fascinating bits of inside information and they aren't always rose-tinted either. When NEVER ENOUGH tackles the Cure's later years without 10 IMAGINARY YEARS to rely on, there is far less inside info. Interestingly, Apter notes that Banshees bassist and former Smith collaborator Steven Severin would only consent to an interview for payment. He should've paid because the book could've really used his input. As it stands, the book does provide some interesting information about life in the Cure, but considering the lack of care that went into this hack job, I don't think we can trust it to be the truth.

rating: not recommended, or marginally recommended to the Cure fan who wants to learn more about the band and doesn't mind slogging through misinformation and boring descriptions of Cure albums.

HASH(0x8d50f390) étoiles sur 5 For now, the QUINTESSENTIAL biography of the greatest band ever!! The Cure!! 16 octobre 2006
Par Gregory Orozco - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
A Great!! GREAT! Book. Starting from when Lol Tolhurst, Mike Dempsey, Simon Gallup, and Robert Smith joined and from other band join ins and outs. Talks an awful lot of Robert Smiths life as a child with his childhood friend and former bandmate Lol Tolhurst. Incredible book!! There is alot more tho that I would have wanted to see. THe author cut off at some songs when introducing an album to speed up the book. Alot of songs were left unspoken of which kinda ticked me off but other than that I LOVED it!!

For Cure fans alike this book is a MUST read!!! It's great! Don't hesitate, buy it!! You will love it!!

HASH(0x902074e0) étoiles sur 5 I do wish I could give a pathetic zero stars on so-called "biography" of The Cure... 27 juin 2014
Par Beans In My Ears - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
I could be considered a "die hard" fan of The Cure. I have all their albums. I have all their videotapes. I have been to about 20 live concerts, with almost all of them requiring considerable travel from my home. I adore their music. I think Robert Smith is a genuine genius and I love the sound of his voice.

I love to read and I'm always interested in a good biography. A friend of mine handed me his Kindle with this book on it and the comment, "I think you might like to read this. I'll be back in a week." I took his Kindle Fire into my arms and did a happy dance (because of the book, of course...but also because I got to play around with his cool Kindle Fire for a week. Yay!) I was over the moon that I had something that promised to be a fascinating biography and I put down my own Kindle, picked up my friend's, put my feet up in my lounge chair under my umbrella in the back yard and started reading.

Well, I read it. I wish I could stuff my happy dance back into my feet. I wish I could have the hours back that I wasted on this absurd "biography", written by someone who has limited writing skills, someone who utterly lacks research skills, and someone who OBVIOUSLY has it in for Robert Smith. I am presuming that Mr. Smith and family refused personal interviews with Jeff Apter, who reacted by making it his religion to put Smith down at every opportunity. Apter's personal malice is transparent in his variety of malicious snipes taken at Robert Smith throughout this entire volume of unverifiable redundancy. What is also obvious is Apter's ingratiating gratitude towards Lol Tolhurst for offering up his whatevers. It's also obvious that Lol likes being liked.

There was soooooooooooo much cut and pasted inertia gleaned from other cut and pasted inertia gleaned from yet other cut and pasted inertia that can ALL be found and cut and pasted your own self...for free...from the internet. We, who have followed The Cure and who are NOT gullible take all that nit-wittiness with a grain of salt. It's the same sort of yawn fest that had me putting beans in my ears YEARS ago to tune out, because the repetiviness of so-called "music reviewers" who did not particularly fancy The Cure, Robert Smith, or Southern England for that matter became stale. I would figure, who could be THAT stupid as to: not like a band as top notch as The Cure or Robert Smith's magical voice, or not like the songs...which are ageless? A reviewer that rigid and musically limited does not, in my opinion deserve to be taken at all seriously. I would think, "Like, really? You're that lame and you call yourself a music reviewer? You're that oblivious and you think you are an authority on knowing ANYTHING relevant about this particular CREATIVELY INSPIRATIONAL band?" Well, I think Jeff Apter is the worst of the worse. He's groveling for a story, and this book is all he could come up with. It is not a biography of The Cure.

For someone who likes The Cure and then reads this trivial nonsense to fawn all over it as if it is top notch The Cure history, doesn't REALLY know a thing about the band...someone who believes all the silly things they read...and someone who cannot be trusted to give a good reference as to what is worth reading. I've already called my friend who claims to be a fan of The Cure. He needs to purge Jeff Apter's dreck out of his brain. I assured him that I did NOT throw his Kindle into the dumpster. I do want him to delete it off his Kindle and off his Manage My Kindle if he wants me to make him dinner when he gets home from his vacation...like I promised. But I feel like he owes me dinner, now, since I read this bogus bio he suggested.

If you REALLY want to read an OUTSTANDING biography about The Cure, get your hands on a copy of TEN IMAGINARY YEARS.

HASH(0x8da1d84c) étoiles sur 5 completely EXCELLENT info and storytelling 22 octobre 2007
Par @serendipitousP - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
i am a diehard cure fan since about 1985, but this book told me so much info i really feel like i did my homework! excellent stories, amazing detailed, fairly balanced on controversial issues, great photos. if you wish you'd been in on the cure during their teenage years, this book will fill you in to a serioius level. truly entertaining read.

i'd recommend this highly...but please avoid In Between Days: An Armchair Guide to the Cure unless you really just want to read discographical info.
