User Review  - Signe - Goodreads

was okay, easy to read, the order of the narrative made sense. as freddie mercury is my favourite artist, then to me it was very interesting, but on the other hand i knew already basically all the details and stuff. nothing new there, but just the same situations from the other points of view.
