    1. I have not finished this book, but I have given up on reading it At least for now It has not managed to captivate me And that s not for lack of an interesting story of Ray Charles The Michael Lydon inundates readers with the most miniscule details of Charles history and it s a bit much Lydon focuses on his career much than his life It doesn t flow as a story, but as a compilation of dates and facts, where as the autobiographies of Marvin Gaye and Miles Davis read as a story Hope this makes sens [...]


    2. I liked this book, but after reading it, I don t much like Ray Charles Loved the movie, and as always, I must find out the truth of the matter So, I picked up the Bio Good, worth the read, but don t read it if you want to stay enad with Mr Charles.


    3. Not bad Good book I d idealized Ray and his voice for most of my life It s not exactly a triumph learning that he was a real bastard to most of the people close to him.

    6. I learnt that your heroes are not always the nice guys you hoped they would be Charles comes across as driven and narcissistic which was a bit of a shock.
