Book Overview

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELER - The brilliant coming-of-age-and-into-superstardom story of one of the greatest artists of all time, in his own words--featuring never-before-seen photos, original scrapbooks and lyric sheets, and the exquisite memoir he began writing before his tragic death

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE WASHINGTON POST

Prince was a musical genius, one of the most beloved, accomplished, and acclaimed musicians of our time. He was a startlingly original visionary with an imagination deep enough to whip up whole worlds, from the sexy, gritty funk paradise of Uptown to the mythical landscape of Purple Rain to the psychedelia of Paisley Park. But his most ambitious creative act was turning Prince Rogers Nelson, born in Minnesota, into Prince, one of the greatest pop stars of any era.

The Beautiful Ones is the story of how Prince became Prince--a first-person account of a kid absorbing the world around him and then creating a persona, an artistic vision, and a life, before the hits and fame that would come to define him. The book is told in four parts. The first is the memoir Prince was writing before his tragic death, pages that bring us into his childhood world through his own lyrical prose. The second part takes us through Prince's early years as a musician, before his first album was Read More chevron_right

   enjoyable reading for any Prince fan
It covers his later years more than early and mid-years.

   Did not live up to expectations
Unbelievable that the author actually published Prince's scribblings, which are usually unreadable without being interpreted for the reader. Unless you're prince's employee and paid to decipher this thing, you have wasted your money with me.

   Unfinished
Not sure why this book received such great reviews. It is basically a picture book with some text. At best, unfinished and very much disjointed.

   If you want to know Prince better...
It was a treat to read texts written by his hand with scribbles on the sides and to see his own writing. I knew it was going to cover his life up to Purple Rain, but it was so engrossing that I was still kind of surprised when it ended.

   A must have
This is a book that you must own. Prince's handwriting, the personal images, his wit, his personal views on growing up and life. You can read all the other books that speak of the individual's relationships with Prince... but this is the book HE wanted to know the world. I'm devastated that the book is a mere part of what he meant to write... but I take nothing over nothing.

   Heart breaking
HUGE Prince fan.. grew up and am a Minnesota girl.. was in Purple Rain, but like so much since his death. Hard to read, does not flow and does not really tell a story from his point of view.

   Prince had just begun this idea. It wasn't finished.
I was excited about this book ''. I wanted to like it ''. I wasn 't. This isn 't what Prince wanted. With his honesty, with transparency and creativity, he wanted to make an impact. That's all this book is a contract. The writer did a good job with the limited material he had and it is clear that he cared about Prince. A few hand written pages by Prince on a legal pad is, however, not the achievement that Prince was aiming for. On the day wept, Prince died. I'm just a fan ''. If I knew how incomplete Prince's contributions were to this work, I wouldn t have bought it. This man and his music make me miss. I could have retained my $20 and still honored his legacy as I always will by listening to and appreciating his music.
