A very nice read

The book is great.
Actually an awesome read.
The quality of the book was top notch, delivery the same.
in context to the book itself, the first half is very interesting, but the second half just dotes on him being a junkie, hardly informative esp considering the In Utero era

Kurteous Kurt

This is a great book to read. However if you are looking to get the absolute truth behind Kurt, this book wont fulfill your ambition. Knowing Kurt from whatever medium, there is surely a lot more than meets the eye. The book does justice is capturing a whole lot of stuff but when you retrospect, this comes off as the version of Courtney rather than Kurt himself or the other people involved with Kurt.

It surely is a must read though. Njoy as I did while reading this cover to cover.

A nice read in general

considering the condition of the book, the pages seemed a bit low quality
but the packaging and delivery were top notch
good condition and before the expected delivery date.

as for the book content itself, a nice read get a bit disappointing toward the end.

good book..must read for all nirvana fans

i really wanted to know everything about my fav star...and the first book i read was this one.its an awsome insight to his private and piblic life.but still i feel its a little biased.kurt's life was a big controversy,his death was even a bigger one.i feel there might be more to what the author is trying to tell us.nevertheless this is a good read.go for it..dont think much...free english ebooks are not available...flipkart delivery is fantastic..
